Composition of My Ancestors from Two to Eight Generations Ago


Robin R. Foster, Ancestry Composition, 23andMe, <https://you.23andme.com/reports/ancestry_composition_hd/>



I have spent many years finding the original historical documentation of my ancestors. Several years ago, I started taking DNA tests. I have not finished finding records so I have not been as dependent on DNA as one might expect. I did, just recently, compare my ancestral composition to the documentation that I compiled.


This visual remarkably tell the story of my genetic makeup:


I am 65.2 percent Sub-Saharan African, 30.7 percent European, and 3.3 percent East Asian & Native American.

British & Irish


You most likely had a great-grandparent, second-great-grandparent, or third-great-grandparent who was 100% British & Irish. This person was likely born between 1810 and 1870.

I noticed that Genealogy Just Ask had not as of yet started these groups, so I created them and have announced them to the Genealogy! Just Ask! Group:


Scandinavia Genealogy! Just Ask!


Spain Genealogy! Just Ask!


Portugal Genealogy! Just Ask!


In my next blog post on DNA, I will start to name the ancestors I have researched above.
