The results have come in recently. What do we do now?
First, two initial reaction, one from hers, one from mine.
1. Mildly surprised to see her Ireland Ethnicity was so high, at 35% (mine was so low, at 3%).
2. Results appear to confirm that both branches of my Kinnick heritage, including Nile Kinnick, are indeed genetically related. Multiple matches to ‘other branch’ - very satisfying! We all believe it to be true, but never able to ‘prove’ via available records. Now, perhaps, redouble our efforts.
Here are the stats:
WLS Ethnicity Estimate (100% Europe)
55% Europe West
7% Great Britain
NRS Ethnicity Estimate (99% Europe)
43% Europe West
