What is your ancestry?
« on: March 19, 2016, 12:42:39 AM »
I'm always surprised when I find out someone knows nothing about their family's past. I feel bad when their family life was a drag and that's the reason but some people just don't care. I'm mostly Irish and have family who came during the potatoe famine, most coming to Philly. My grandfather who is 100%, his grandpa was a Molly Maguire, who if you don't know worked in the coal mines in Pa and revolted helping to create unions. Some were killed and some ran away in hiding, which he did. His name was Bull Cassidy. I am also German and French but know less about their history since it's a small % and those family members have died. Interested in your family's history, stories are always neat if any were past down.

You can get a good genetic makeup test done for about $150 (I think) Ancestry.com. I had mine done using a cheek swab.

The results were  different than what I had expected and interesting. I found I am much more a a "mutt" than my parents or grandparents would have believed. After watching shows like "Vikings" I can pretty easily see how anybody with ancestry from Europe has some blood from the entire Eurasian land mass in them. What surprised me (and pleased me most) was to find out I am about 10% Native American.

Do some comparison shopping on the DNA testing...you can find a much cheaper one...don't fall for the national geographic one...no need to pay that much...there are a ton out there...and some supply different info...my mom did the 23andMe and received a ton of info (all online) ...she been bugging me to do it too...@Illadelph215 another fellow Irish ;)

I used ancestry.com as well. It's funny how many people have Irish blood since it's just a wee little island and all. It's obviously mostly the east coast since that's where most of the immigrants migrated during the famines and all but there's still big pockets all around. @DeadCat, I'm jealous of your Native American ancestry, they were always my favorite topic in history and I have much respect for them. Do you know which tribe by chance?

@DeadCat:

Ancestry DNA is now on sale for $99. That's lower than the usual price last I checked. It was in the $200s. Maybe even $299. I don't exactly remember, but I know it was in the $200s.

Now that's not to say it was more expensive in the past. Also, maybe the one I'm referencing is a very basic model, with upgrades costing more.

http://dna.ancestry.com

@Illadelph215:

I'm afraid I'm one of those people who don't know much about their family history. I know, it's shocking, as I'm a history aficionado. One would think I'd know. I do want to, but that takes time, and I'm currently amotivational.

The only thing I do know is about my grandparents, more so my maternal grandmother. My maternal grandfather died before I could really remember him.

And my paternal grandmother died when I was seven at 91 years old. I vaguely remember going to her funeral, and I technically met her when I was a baby, but that's it. My paternal grandfather is even worse. He died in 1957, so I obviously didn't meet him. She was born in 1896, and he was born in 1890.

Before you scoff, consider the fact that my father was the youngest in his family, born when she was in her late thirties. Also that I was born to an older mother and father too.

The only other tidbit I know is that my earliest ancestor was my great, great, great, however many greats grandfather, who came to the Colony of Virginia in 1635 from Yorkshire, England, and leaving from London. He came on a ship called George. They have passenger lists for early colonial crossings.

I know that because I found a genealogical website where another person with my surname did their own genealogy. They listed that fact. I also went to the passenger list. We have the same common ancestors, up until a point.

I am only guessing, but being in the north of England, some of my ancestors also could have been from Lowland Scotland. I say lowland and not highland because I doubt people from there would travel to the north of England, whereas lowland Scottish people might

Also most people in the past didn't travel far from home. But it's at least possible. I don't claim it because I don't know for sure.

Other than that, that's all I've got.

..............................

I highly suggest people look at Family Search. It's completely free. No upgrades either. Free as in free. It's put up by the Mormons, because they believe they should be record keepers. It's better to use that than pay for Ancestry if you've not gotten it.

I don't know the  tribe. Because we had my mom's done and she had none I know it came from my dad's side and he was born in Medellin, Colombia but his mother was a blonde from Brazil so who knows? I'm guessing it is a South American tribe but it is generally believed THEY migrated down from North America and Asia before that, but I showed 0% Asian.

It also showed Bristish Isles, Scandinavia, Western Europe, Caucuses, little bits from all around the Mediteanean. They provided a map with the areas that contibuted to my DNA profile and I can SEE history, the different confilcts and migrations that we read about all lead to "races" mixing.

It even showed a tiny bit from West Africa, which I'd imagine were captured as slaves.

I know it isn't that interesting to hear about someone else's DNA I only mentioning it because it is SO interesting to see your own and wonder how and when these groups mixed that I'd recommend it to anyone. It really reminds you that much of what we assume about our ancestry is based on just what we know from the last couple generations and what they tell us.

@Narkotikon no scoffing here, I had very little info from my moms side because her parents died young and she never really asked questions. I had to find out myself and it was hard and vague. That is awesome you have relatives from a colony on Va in the 1600's. I didn't have family here until the 1800's. I have no British blood either which was surprising. Also thanks for the website as I never heard of it.      @DeadCat I find it VERY interesting. You have quite the family history and being able to see a map, migrations and conflicts would be awesome. I never got that far with my searches. I can't imagine the feeling I finding out such information.

Yep, very interesting, so cool.

My sister and my cousin had theirs done. I'm not giving my DNA to anyone unless there's sex or a warrant involved. Both are mutually exclusive......Or combined. Lol *knock knock, "I have a sex warrant for a Mr. Pervy Jones "

But I digress...I'm mainly Irish and Dutch/German with a mix Scandinavian blood in there.
