They’re in! They arrived this morning!
My DNA results arrived this morning. Was I surprised with any of the results? Well…. yes I was. Below are the ethnicity results for myself, my mother and my father.
Other regions were:
- Sue: Europe West, Great Britain, Iberian Peninsula, Europe East, European Jewish and Finland/NW Russia
- Mum: Scandinavia, Great Britain, Iberian Peninsula and Europe East
- Dad: Scandinavia, Great Britain, European Jewish, Iberian Peninsula, Europe East and Asia Central
Mum’s and mine were about what I thought they would be – Ireland, Great Britain and Western Europe.
But the greatest surprise was dad’s results. I thought he would have some Pacific Islander DNA as he is supposedly 1/16th Samoan. Maybe this DNA comes through the Asia Central trace but that is <1% so nearly negligible.
The next thing I did was to upload the raw DNA data to Gedmatch. These are the gedmatch numbers in case one of my readers makes a connection.
- Sue A702006
- Dad A380974
- Mum A141289
The letter A in the front means they were from Ancestry DNA. I have already had someone email me through Ancestry saying her husband, who was adopted, is a match to me but only very small.
Readers: If you have had your DNA done, were there any surprises in your results?
