So last year I did a DNA test, was quite surprised from the results. So here were my results:
92% Great Britain
5% West Europe
<1% East Europe
Looking at my research so far, I can confirm that I do have mainly Great British roots along with west Europe which is in fact German. Very interested to see where the Irish is within my tree.
Along with that I have over 60 pages of DNA matches. I have been through them, however as I have not done much of my tree unable to find a connection. I hope that will change once I delve into my tree a bit more.
I have uploaded my data to Gedmatch. I don’t fully understand it, so will need to spend a bit of time getting to know it.
I’m hoping to get my parents to do a DNA test this way I can get an indication on where my genes are from (Ie. mother sides or father side). As I am also looking at the Maxfield side of Chris’ (my boyfriend) family I would also like to get him and his mother tested to identify the Maxfield gene in him.
In respect of the Getting Organised Checklist this week, I am currently working through this and will do a blog post dedicated to this in the next few days.
Anyway, enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
