Western European, Eastern European and European Jewish. My paternal grandparents were Polish. Not sure about the Jewish part (10%). My mum and aunt have a first cousin they knew nothing about and are going to contact him. Otherwise no surprises. My dad hasn’t done his though.

I didn’t do any of the family tree stuff, but did 23andme, which recently updated their findings. My results changed a little bit and now I’m 50% British and Irish! This was exciting because nationality-wise the biggest chunk I had was a quarter, so it’s nice to have a majority versus a plurality in terms of being able to identify with something. I lost of of my French & German with the updated results, which is kind of surprising because I know I have French, German, and Luxembourger ancestors, so you’d think there’d be more than 18%! The biggest surprise was being 15% Scandanavian/Swedish, but just like a couple of PP’s we think it’s probably from Vikings invading Scotland. Definitely makes sense why I’m so pale though, I’m almost entirely Northwestern European. I have 1% Eastern European which is a bit of a mystery. 

My FH is Latino so it’s interesting looking at his since there’s so many different places with just a couple of percentage points, though of course the bulk is Iberian and Native American. My results fit on one screenshot from my phone, his definitely does not.

graced :  I did it because my biological father was adopted, but my results were extremely boring. 98% European, mostly Scottish/Irish/English.
