I got my results back!
I have to admit, they were a little different than I was expecting. All my life I have had people tell me that I must have some African descendants in my lineage somewhere. Mostly due to the curly hair in my family. It’s a pretty dominant feature in myself, my brother, and a couple of my cousins.
Now, I have learned that this is likely not the case.
It turns out that I’m pretty much your average Maritimer. There’s less French and German than I was expecting. Since my parent’s last names are traceable to their respective countries in and around the 1700’s.
The significant amount of Scandinavia is a bit of a surprise and pretty cool! It would explain my obsession with the Scandinavian countries and my longing to visit there.
They also connect you with possible relatives that have profiles on their website too. Super cool! Most people don’t have profile pictures and their names are a bit cryptic, so I’s a bit tricky to tell if I know any of them.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
In conclusion, I can gladly and more heartedly partake in St. Patrick’s Day festivities, knowing that I’m 18% Irish!
