Ancestry ~ 12.4.18

Well, I just received my results from my DNA kit.  I have to say that this was a very simple process…and pretty quick.

www.ancestry.com

I knew I was Swedish, German and English, but the other info was very interesting.  As more people do this, they will be able to narrow the results further, and further.

My results are:

47% – England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg
24% – Sweden
17% – Norway
2% – Germanic Europe
1% – Finland
9% – Ireland and Scotland

So, so cool!!  I spend most of my time working on my Swedish ancestors, in Sweden.  I have been able to locate info dating back to the late 1700’s.  Family names are Svensson from around Boras, and Lindstrom from Malmo.  I have been to Sweden and visited the Boras area where the Svensson’s are from.  I visited the house my Great-Grandmother was born in, back in the 1800’s.  One day I would like to return and visit Malmo where the Lindstrom side of the family is from.

This is/was so much fun!!

You can find great prices on Amazon.  That’s where I have purchased all of my kits so far.
