Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: DNA results are back!
« on: Wednesday 28 February 18 19:33 GMT (UK)  »
I also have my DNA results back, and rather surprising results they are. They read as follows. 97.9% Irish, Scottish and Welsh. 1.2% North African and 0.9% Nigerian. I myself was born in Greenore co Louth Ireland. Both my mother and father were born in Ireland as were my Grandparents, so where has the Nigerian connection and the North African connection come from? How accurate are these DNA results?

Hello   Anyone everyone. Anyone remember the Holland family which consisted of Patrick and his wife my grandmother Margaret Mary Holland nee Roddy. My grandmother had two children, my mother Rosaleen and her sister Elizabeth(Maura). They eventually moved to the Dundalk area. If any living relatives are still living in the area then please post a reply. Thank you. Alphonsus123. :)

Hello.  So would we possibly say that the MyHeritage results are a little offset? How much credit should i attach to my results then? Thank you for the heads up. Alphonsus123

Hello. Got my results back with some very these facts first. I was born in Greenore county louth Ireland. My mother and Father were both born in the republic (Dundalk and Clare? so i would have thought/expected 100% Irish results from the DNA, but no my results were as follows, 97.9% Irish, Scottish and Welsh. 1.2% North African and wait for it 0.9% Nigerian, now where have these results come from? Any suggestions? Have a great week. Alphonsus123
