Family have ‘breakdown’ after DNA test reveals truth about their heritage

Tracking down your family history and learning about your ancestors can be really interesting, and you never know what you might discover along the way.

People love learning about where they came from, and some even find some exciting distant relatives.

But one family got a huge shock after a DNA test revealed everything they believed about their heritage was actually wrong.

The daughter shared the story on Twitter with live updates as her dad tried to come to terms with the news, and before long thousands of people were following the hilarious journey.

She starts off by explaining that her uncle on the Italian side of her family went for a DNA test, but the results showed they’re not actually Italian at all.

The news didn’t go down well with the rest of the family, especially his brother – who is the woman sharing the story’s dad.

Desperately trying to keep the dream alive, her dad starts doing some research.

Meanwhile the rest of the family seem to find the whole thing rather amusing – which isn’t helping his pain.

Wow. Just wow.

Although she stopped the live updates it seems the row went on for a while longer, and the woman updated her intreguied followers the following day.

She wrote: "My nana is mad at my uncle and eventually just stopped talking to him and started talking about her family’s history in New Jersey, and this morning told my brother to "shut it" when he brought it up again.

"I’m getting my dad Swiss chocolate for Christmas, he remains devastated."
