Yesterday on Drive, Bec and Jeziel wanted to know who did you find out you’re related to?
Their discussion started after Bec shared an interesting fact. Research shows that all blued eye people are related…Or at least share the same distant ancestor. Danish researchers studied the DNA of blued eyes individuals from Scandinavia, Turkey, Jordan and India. They found they had identical gene sequences for the eye colour. They believe the trait comes from a single individual called the founder, whose genes mutated 6000-10 000 years ago. Before that, everyone had varying shades of brown eyes.
Jeziel’s sister did a DNA test and found out they could be related to Hans Christian Anderson. So they wanted to know who did you find out you’re related to?? Maybe a celebrity or a long lost distant cousin who turned out to be your neighbour.
