Have you used a genetic testing service to take a peek into your ancestral background? One of those direct-to-consumer products that tells you about your family’s history and health? A service like 23andMe, Ancestry or National Geographic’s ancestry test?

If so, we want to hear your story.

Marketplace is working on upcoming coverage related to how genetic testing plays out for people of color.
