Happy Valentine’s Day! Rich and I didn’t do anything special today, but we’ve never really celebrated Valentine’s Day like some couples do.
I spent today working on my family tree on Ancestry.com. For Christmas, Rich bought me the DNA kit so I could find out where I originated from. I really liked the information that they give you…it not only includes all of the percentages of where my DNA originated from…but also who I might be related to. I thought that was the fun part, finding people that I never knew, who are related to me. They only found second to fourth cousins, but it was still pretty interesting, finding that they were 100% accurate. There were only three or four of them that had a family tree that I could check, but every one I found, had a person whose name I recognized from my grandmothers. Tell me that’s not cool? I was amazed that it worked so well. So here’s my DNA make up.
Great Britain 47%
Europe West 27%
Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) 7%
