So anybody else on here done it ?

I did my dna test a while ago and have been delving into my family tree

I’ve gone back quite a few generations and have been very fascinated with what I’ve uncovered.

I’ve got lots of London relatives, my dads side of the family it seems originated from Attleborough / Diss area of Norfolk -
My Nan on my mums side was from South Shields and many descendants from the area around there (nr Newcastle / Sunderland)

I’ve also uncovered an Irish connection - Dempsey from Dublin and McCarthy from Cork who married in 1850 at Greenwich

It appears DB10 was right after all :shock:
I did mine a couple of years ago. Given that my known heritage, going back as far as my great, great, grandparents from both parents is from the east med, I was shocked to find that of the 80% of my European DNA, 21% is British, a chunk of it Scandinavian, a smaller chunk of it from the Baltics, a bit from Sicily and 3% Ashkenazi Jew. I may not have found any Irish connection but seem to be connected to every other fucker. My ancestors done some serious travelling and didn't discriminate. So, now I can say I've links back (although still to be proven) to Richard the Lionheart, Genghis Khan, and Einstein. I'd love to find that lineage.
Wow that is some family tree yiu would have going on :barscarf: nice one
