Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: What would a 51% DNA match infer?
« on: Sunday 01 December 19 10:50 GMT (UK)  »

Thanks for the words of encouragement. Now-putting you on the spot - or anyone else who reads this.
Would a "y" chromosone test be more worthwhile to extend my knowledge of my fathers line. I am assuming that the family were more or less within the County Derry/Ulster area for some time. The name Bradley or variations being very common.

Yes there must be quite mixture from those days. I just didn't think such a high figure would pop up now.

Thanks to all

Thanks to you all for the explanation. My eyes cross when I get into DNA detail.
So it must have been an ethnicity comparison/guess. I was thinking along the lines of a DNA comparison which as stated would have been parents.
I was considering doing a DNA test just to see what they come up with but 65% British + nonsense is not really worth it.
Most of my heritage is Irish and I was considering a "y" chromosone test, since my knowledge on my father's side is a bit hazy.


ps Just seen last two posts - thank you.   Eyes crossing already

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / What would a 51% DNA match infer?
« on: Saturday 30 November 19 12:48 GMT (UK)  »

A friend whose husband is from Crete recently got his DNA results which show him as 51% Italian.
Now I know that there were close Greek links to Sicily and southern Italy thousands of years ago.
But this seems a high percentage. I don't the family history or if there are any possible Italian links.
I don't know the DNA company he used.
What suggestions please?

Would this anonymous sporran be referred to as a "day / generic " type of sporran, since the Argylls had a rather flamboyant six tasseled affair.

Impressive information.
I just had the bare bones of it. Although he is not a direct relation I was intrigued by what little I knew about his story. I located the names of two others in "C" Battery 4th Brigade that were killed that day.
George Jack Flack and William Henry Marshall both on the Pozieres Memorial.
