DNA results are back!
« on: Sunday 25 February 18 12:05 GMT (UK) »
Apparently I have  96% British Isles ancestry. Only 2% Western Europe and 1% Scandinavian. This seems surprisingly high?
Best wishes
Paul

Hi Paul,

Was that an Ancestry (Autosomal) DNA Test?

That is astonishingly high! Still I guess that makes you a good guinea pig if they want to do tests on what 'real' British people are  ;)  ;D

It was through Ancestry. The 1% Scandinavian was a shock because my surname is Grisdale which is from Mungrisdale, Matterdale and this is Viking for pig valley!

Maybe you should try Living DNA, its good for people with mostly British ancestry (or results).  Will help break it down.

Yes, I've never used them myself but heard good things.

Paul,

Can I ask when you sent yours in? to give me an idea of how much longer I might have to wait for my results.

Do Ancestry not narrow down British Isles into Scots, Irish etc?

I suppose that's you busy for the foreseeable, working out all your new rellies?  ;D
