And....the Ancestry Test came back.
I should have trusted my adoption papers.
29% Great Britain
The remainder :
The weird thing is, my parents were told I was
Irish and Welsh. They were spot on.
The five percent Scandinavian, according to
Ancestry, is the influence of the Vikings.
But the really, really fascinating thing about the whole
test is the fact that my DNA brought up
334 fourth cousins or closer!
This fascinates me.
You see, these are REAL cousins, people
who are related to me by blood.
However, I still have to contact Ancestry to find out
how I build a separate tree for blood relatives while
building my tree for my "real" family.
Some of the DNA relations (I don't know
what else to call them right now) are as close as
3rd cousins, and they have pages and NAMES.
I would show you the pie chart, but Ancestry has it
blocked to copying.
I'm glad I did it, but I need to call them in the next
few days to see how to rectify this whole thing.
I'm glad I did it.
