Ancestry DNA - Dennis

So a couple months ago, there was a good deal on the whole Ancestry DNA thing, and Dennis and I both really wanted to do it. We thought it could be crazy interesting to see what the DNA showed compared to what I figured out based on where ... basically ... everyone was FROM (as in where they were born) ... just because you were BORN in England, didn't mean that your DNA was "British" .. get it? Because if you are born in England, and your great great great great whatever set of Grandparents had a long genetic line in France, means your DNA will show as French instead of British. Follow me?

So wayyyy back when, I had pieced together this pie chart based on where the grandparents or great-grandparents - or however far back I could piece together came from.

I thought it was funny that his Norwegian showed more clear than mine did. (Ha ha) ... But interestingly - the amount of Italian in him was not as much as thought... and the fact that he does have European Jewish in him, even though it's a freckle, it's still there - confirming what he has heard! It's really interesting though. He also has some Middle East in him. Which is also interesting. Probably those who initiated in the Middle East migrated down to Italy. But these are pretty cool .... There was one rumor that he was hoping would be proved, but wasn't - and that was the Indian that one of his great-great-whatever-grandfather's married. But that didn't pick up.

This is what our results were based on the DNA ....
