Finally got my act together and submitted my sample to the AncestryDNA testing lab.
The kit provided easy-to-follow instructions, removing concerns I had about gathering the DNA.
I sealed the envelope, then went online to "activate my kit online". After entering my kit's unique activation code, I was asked to link to one of my online Ancestry Member Trees.
