I found about this: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/about/

It would be very cool to determine ancestor lines but damn its expensive. And that does not even include 20 euros in postage BOTH WAYS. Grr.

Have any of your guys done this?

I think on my dad's side we're British going back generations, but my mum's mum is Irish, so on her side it's all Irish as well

well we all started from africa so essentially, we are all related!!! And we are all "black" lol

my family is vast majority irish and scottish decent. completely irish on my maternal grandmothers side, though my maternal grandfather has english roots. On my dad's side, mostly irish and some scottish. Also a tiny bit of german mixed in.

There are certain genetic markers in the dna. They get passed unchanged from mother to child and also from father to son. When you collect enough of these, you find lines and can connect the dots.



Quote :
Different populations carry distinct genetic markers. Following the markers through the generations reveals a genetic tree on which today’s many diverse branches can be followed backwards to their common African root.

In old times (or some cultures even today) women moved in with the man (other village etc), not the other way around.

Irish, Scottish, Welsh, White Russian and they say, a touch of Spanish thrown in. Funny thing is, I found a picture of my great grandmother and boy did she ever look Spanish! She was born in Wales but I actually wonder if she wasn't actually part African. She deffo looks Moorish. She has very curly hair, quite dark skin, big black eyes and full lips. I should scan and post a picture of her. Just think, perhaps if she is black, I can start taking advantage of Affirmative Action legislation!!

I think The Spanish Armada crashed on the coast and mingled with the locals. I think that's why a lot of Welsh have that darkness to them...just a little something different from other Celts. I can't put my finger on it but I always recognize it when I see it.

When I lived in the UK< I always wondered why the Welsh are generally so much darker than other brits. Look at Catherine Zeta Jones. Or, even Charlotte Church(ADORE her-for all the opera she sang;she's still a commoner :P)eventhough she's a blonde. They all look like they tan a lot during the summer Aled and Steve Jones, Ioan Gryffud, Gavin Henson.those Wesh contestants on Big Brother...Glynn and Imogen..they had a dark tone to their skin.Dark features,too sexy

I adore the Welsh accent it sounds so cute! "Hellooo my name iiiis Mike POWiiiisss. And whn I heard Welsh for the first time I was like. This sounds like nothing I have heard before.
