I am More British, than most who are British Today

Recommended Posts

Our Family (well My wife Pam and I, paid for and ordered) DNA Kit"s for Christmas. We bought the kits for, Pam, Myself, our four Children, and their Spouses. This amounted to 10 different kits, and everyone loved the kit and loved the idea of doing this as a family. We have down some, (in some cases, (a lot) with some family names, and less with others. The DNA Test's are all back now, the biggest surprise would come in mine, and my oldest adopted daughters DNA information. This because I was adopted young by another man, and knew little to nothing about my bio-father, or family. my oldest child (a daughter) I adopted, and very little was known about him, other than a name.

My daughter had some surprises, not knowing anything about her bio-father. She is much more Cherokee, than we knew, her Mother (my Wife) has always known her great-grandmother was Cherokee, but we did not know Sonya's bio-father, was part Cherokee, so my daughter is 25+%  Cherokee Indian.

Myself, I am 90% British, with the 10% remaining, Scot, Irish, and Norway. I knew on my Mother's side this was the case, so now I can really dig in and to very targeted search results. My continuing health issues, and some very close members down the road, who are retired and have offered to help, ready to help. They are (long-time) Family Research Specialist, and have offered to come here, or we can go there. This is a calling and a work, that I can still be of some assistance for others, and to my genealogy, and be of help in the Temple, as a patron, to help my family, and assist who need help. Seems, I have found a place to serve, by giving service to others, inside or out of the Temple.

Nice gift and fun.

I do know of a case where doing something like this blew a family apart when they found out that dad was actually the father of only three of the five children. Glad that did not happen either. ;)

I did my DNA last year or so and discovered nothing surprising -- my genealogy pretty much matches up with my DNA.

Yeah, that's scary all right.
