DNA test

Post by Pilot »

I've just turned 70 last Sunday and for a birthday present my children got my DNA tested for its origins, I'm happy with the results, it turns out 73% is British this compares with 46% for the average white Briton ! Do I have a claim to the throne I wonder ? 13% is Scandinavian this will be the Viking influence, 9% is Spanish, if you go back a few hundred years my fathers family came from Cork in southern Ireland and he always said there was a Spanish influence on the south coast of Ireland going back 4 or 5 hundred years. 3% is from mainland Europe this figure is quite low I would have expected it to be higher considering the ice cap came as far south as just north of London during the last ice age and few people actually lived in England, my claim to the throne is even stronger I think :D 1 of the other 2% is from the middle east and the other from the Finnish/Russian area. So there you go I'm 99% European. 8)

Fascinating Pilot. Goes to show what a mix we all are. I have some Spanish, Irish, British and European mostly in my DNA. You know what they say about the 6 degrees of separation. We may even share some ancestors from some few hundred years back!
