and the results are in
sometime before Christmas I sent a spit sample to Ancestry.com
today I received an email with DNA results
so here it is>>
-Southern Sweden: Ostra Smaland and Blekinge areas
-Tingsryd, Emmaboda and Ronneby towns
the above would be from my Mother's side where ancestors have been found way back to 5x great grandparents.
23% Eastern Europe & Russia
-Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland & Lithuania countries
this lot would be from my Father's side, his surname was Polish although we were all born in Germany.
18% Germanic Europe
6% England (there's a surprise)& North Western Europe
2% European Jewish (not at all surprised)
2% Irish (another surprise)
and there we have it, the parts that make up River.
