Okay, my fellow RootsTechers and Rootstechettes, you asked for it 🙂
For three days back in February I listened to the complaints that there is not enough German data in the reference pool and was I almost “forced” to take a DNA test.
Well, not forced.. I was all in for this kind of experiment. Always an early adopter.
And here they are!
My AncestryDNA results
Except for the 15% Great Britain, nothing of that is really surprising. I wouldn’t have guessed that percentage that high.
And what shall I say? I’m Irish!!
I think I will fully concentrate on my Irish heritage now. Everybody loves the Irish. Best Football fans ever!! (Soccer for you guys across the pond) 🙂
Enough kidding, even if the estimate is not surprising, I am very curious about my DNA matches. I already received the first message. I even had it in my mailbox before I could review my DNA results. This can be an exciting journey!
Wow, I couldn’t even look at my #AncestryDNA results yet and have the first contact in my mailbox. Some people are quick!!
