I started entertaining suspicions about my own mother.
My son didn't seem to think so. He's very good with numbers,you see, and he said this proved, well, ah, that I haven't been 100 percent straight with him.
"Numbers don't lie," he said.
Besides, I added "This test says it details deep ancestry, with deep ancestry underlined!"
Mostly Great Britain 35% (median) then Caucasus 20% (What?) then Italian and Greek, 17% (well, I knew that in my heart) and Scandinavian, then European Jew. Yes, the history of Europe is really mixed up!
I knew my father's Yorkshire features were Norwegian!
A trace of North American native. (My son's chart suggests it is South American native, Mestizo.)
Maybe a paltry 3% Iberian Pennisula.
My son's DNA did hint at some Polish, Hungarian and Romanian, maybe that's the Caucasus part.
But there's alot of curly hair in my Mom's family. Crépeau means 'curly haired one' apparently.
So, it's my husband's father, a fourth cousin to General Douglas MacArthur through his mother's Hardy line, who has Basque blood unless my son's 3 year old test was only about very deep ancestry.
Can I get my hubby to spit into a vile?
Ancestry connected me to a slew of fourth to sixth cousins using their site and most seem French - and I assume French Canadian. That seems right, doesn't it?
Does my husband look a bit like General Douglas MacArthur, his 4th cousin. His Dad sure did.
