    Wouldn’t it be cool..

    If someday DNA technology advanced to the point where it could be recovered from very old artifacts? Imagine finding an arrowhead and linking it through time to some present day person.

    “Hey, I found this point and I believe it was lost by your great, great, great, etc., etc., grandparent.” Wishful thinking but maybe other items like musket balls that had blood and tissue on them... you never know.

    Apologizing for something done to another person’s ancestors by someone unrelated to you a few hundred years ago seems to be the trend. And the #metoo movement had me worried about what one of my high school dates might claim I did once 50 something years ago.

    But, how did you get born?

    Also, who the heck was my great, great, great, grandfather?

    The heck with this DNA stuff. A bunch of years from now they will think something different about it.
