    I do remember my mom and dad going to get the milk bottles refilled. Or maybe swapped the empty for filled. Not sure if we had a milk man per se.

    Anyway, thanks to Dr John for turning this into the milkman nostalgia thread.

    My kit came yesterday and I sent it back today. It won't be there until Saturday. It's going from Arizona to Utah. WTF. I need philleotardo to speed things up for me.

    We had milk delivered as well. Sometimes it froze and the bottle(s) broke... That was a mess and then we had to drink powdered mile til the next delivery. Yuck.

    I might be disqualified, since the milk was in normal plastic jugs.

    I was thinking about ordering the Ancestry kit some months back. I did some research online and found out that, for geographical purposes, even the best tests (much pricier than the tests mentioned in this thread) are not going to be good for more than a few generations back. Most families have a pretty good idea of grandparents and great-grandparents anyway. What I found is that, for medical purposes, it is better to get several tests done with different companies and compare the results. They tend to differ from test to test.

    The milkman was definitely real. You'd have to ask your mom if he was spectacular.

    the 1920s thing seems consistent but the specific reason of typos has less credibility.

    i'm not sure the material of the jugs is why you are "disqualified" from holding them.
