DNA Results

Ancestry’s DNA test covers both the maternal and paternal sides of the family tree, so it covers all lineages. The Ancestry DNA test analyzes your entire genome-all 23 pairs of chromosomes-as opposed to only looking at the Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA (which makes other types of tests gender specific). Your autosomal chromosomes carry genetic information from both your parents that’s passed down through the generations. Autosomal testing allows you to find family across all lines in your family tree and the results are not limited to just the direct maternal or paternal lines.
My Ancestry DNA test shows my heritage is 100% European. I can confirm most of my ancestry to the countries matched by the DNA test. However, there are a few areas mentioned that I have no idea how they tie in.
Great Britain is 57% and is primarily in: England, Scotland, Wales

Europe West is 12% and is primarily in: Belgium, France, Germany,Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein

Italy/Greece is 10% and is primarily in: Italy, Greece

Ireland is 8% and is primarily in: Ireland, Wales, Scotland

Iberian Peninsula is 4% and is primarily in: Spain, Portugal

Scandinavia is 4% and is primarily in: Sweden, Norway, Denmark

Finland/Northwest Russia is 3% and is primarily in: Finland, Russia (northwest)

Europe East is 1% and is primarily in: Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Russia, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia

European Jewish is 1% and is primarily in: Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, Israel

All very interesting. Still having a time trying to tie in all the cousin connections but all in good time.

  1. My great grandmother was Zader Harbin. Her married name was Zader Lee Norris. Just recently her daughter (my grandmother) Betty Jo Brenneman (Norris) passed away July 10, 2014. Betty Jo had 3 children. Jerry Lee Spears 5/25/1952 Donna Gail Spears 5/21/1950 and Jeanette Spears 2/13/1954-4/20/2001. I am the only child of Donna Spears. Jerry has one living child Amy Spears 1/3/79 and Jeanette never had children. Can you add this into your tree? If you need more info on Bettys Sisters and Brothers let me jnow!

    • I’ll be happy to add Please send the info on Bett’s siblings. Just remember that if they are living, they will not show up in the family tree. So sorry to hear of the passing of Zader. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Feel free to email me at famrootstracer@gmail.com your family information. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for commenting.

  2. Thank you for following me and opening the door to your most interesting world. Eddie
