It’s a good time to build — or is that rebuild? — your family tree.

Helping you and your fam connect with the past: AncestryDNA kits, now on sale for Mother’s Day.

Ancestry is the best-selling consumer DNA kit in the world, and part of the world’s largest consumer DNA network. It can trace your roots back to over 1000 different global regions, discover migration paths and present the info with an interactive timeline, geographic details about your history and a pie chart fully detailing your ethnicity.

And all you need to give is a saliva sample. Send your spit kit back, and you’ll know more than you ever wanted to about your genealogy about 6-8 weeks later.

Once you’re an Ancestry member, you can also view photos and stories from your family’s past via the National Archives records.

By the way, if you’re worried about sending saliva samples at this time — or if said samples could actually be of some help for testing purposes — Ancestry provides a helpful COVID-19 FAQ (long story short: it’s safe and not yet).
