  2. I have had my Mom and her 90+ year old sister tested, an Aunt and daughter on my Dad's side tested as well as myself. My husband has tested and his Y-DNA line is Scandinavian. We had our daughter in law tested. She was adopted and we wanted her to know more about herself DNA wise. With the help of DNA and genealogy research we learned our daughter in law and husband share Fuller ancestors and further up the Fuller line comes my Mom's line through her dad. My daughter in law share ancestors through my Mom's dad's mother's line back to the 1400's. This is through our daughter in laws biological mother's father's Byers/Sams/Fuller line. The biological father is Nick Munoz, with ancestral origins in Jalisco, Mexico. She has a lot of shared DNA through him but without those Cousins putting information out on their family trees, it's really hard to find out how they are all connected.

    Your problem is that the categories used by Ancestry dot com are all miss-named. Typically Americans cannot understand that “British” is meant to be all-inclusive: they think it means some kind of posh Southern English people. The term ‘Great Britain’ used by Ancestry actually means Anglo-Saxon. However, after the Anglo-Saxons came the Danes invaded, and left their DNA in large quantities. ‘Scandinavian’ DNA is no guarantee your ancestors came recently from Norway etc: it could just as well have been the East coast of England. Then the Normans and Angevins came: I can’t say for certain if this is the only source, but Western European type DNA is also common in England. And who was there before the Anglo-Saxons? The Celts. Ancestry calls Celtic DNA ‘Irish’, but it’s almost as common in Scotland and Wales, and even in the NW of England. So it’s entirely possible that all your ancestors crossed to New England from Yorkshire. You probably have some boring generic English surname like Smith.

    The Scandinavian makes sense because a lot of vikings invaded Britain over 1000 years ago. I'm from Britian and I took the test and i'm 33% British, 29% Scandinavian. The Irish also makes sense because a lot of British people have family from Ireland as well.

    Your ethnicity is pretty much normal for someone from England! Whilst your family tree will only go back a couple of hundred years the ethnicity test will cover the last 1000 or so.
    Statistically your western europe ethnicity would probably come from Anglo-Saxon or the later Danish viking invasion and don't forget that Irish DNA on Ancestry covers Wales and Scotland as well. On Ancestry the label "Great Britain" is given to the early British people prior to the "invasions".

  6. also everybody s family tree is wrong. Because years ago they adopted kids and took them in and raised then as there own. also people had affairs. and the best why to know what you are I'd what your parents told you. I'm 25 percent Irish 25 percent Indian 25 percent Italian and polish maybe a little Dutch. But not sure. That's what I was told. the truth is in there.

  7. What's funny is the ethnicity results are just for fun. they are not meant to be taken seriously. do i would not take very seriously what they told you.
