All the talk about Native American heritage, got me to thinking. Growing up I was told I had Native American genes and I felt very proud of it. I had ancestors that fought with Washington but felt greater pride that I might have ancestors living here before the Europeans invaded the place. So when a half sister said that I should do the 23 and me and find out about my ancestors I reluctantly agreed.
To my shock my blue-eyed, blond wife has Native American ancestry and I do not. I do have some African ancestry along with all the main countries in Europe. Found out I have Scandinavian ancestry which should not be surprising knowing that the Vikings invaded the British Isles and lots of other parts of Europe. We also found out we have a new 1st cousin that is 69 years old. Got to talking to some folks at Costco and one lady said her father found out about a half brother he did not know about.
Just wondering if anybody else would like to share any revelations?
