    wow, I am intrigued Brendan, looks a bit pricey at £150?

    Is the result what you thought it would be?

    So basically you have a generally British profile similar to most of British people, somewhere along the line there could be a mix of Scandinavian, based on interpretation of their database of x number of samples?

    with a few people I've met, I would be wanting a test that tells you what % Neanderthal they are.

    I'm related to both Trump and Netanyahoo. The only difference is I don't have the gene for megalomania.

    ​I can think of a few other well known people you may have genetic links to.

    ​yeah get a generic health risk report too and can search for dna relatives. but the pain thing is to get the raw data so you can research on your own.

    Did you get the raw data?

    Having traced my family tree to 1600's I can confirm (without doing a DNA) I am 87% (+/- a few) English and 13% (+/- a few) Irish

    And potentially within that % because of history I will most likely have some Viking and Roman DNA but not worth worrying about as 87% is the majority English but I'm happy to be called British

    I'd love to travel across to Dublin and meet some of my great grandmothers family

    Not being negative Brendan - happy for you but I'd rather spend the money on a ferry across to Dublin

    Oh and get this - they say crime doesn't pay
    My gt,gt,gt grandfather was convicted of theft of tobacco and sentenced to prison but was then sent across to Australia where, within a few years, he ended up with a massive sheep farm......wtf

    Impossible.

    England wasn't even England when your earliest ancestors first set foot on the planet.

    At any rate the name England is derived from Angle/Angul which is derived from old Norse Ongull and refers to a person from a Teutonic (Germanic) tribe, possibly from Holstein; believed to have come to this island around the fifth century.

    Nevertheless, you can't quite claim German ancestory with any certainty as the French changed everything in 1066.
    Further, you need to ask where the Germans and French came from before they arrived in Germany and France.

    Ultimately, your line probably started off with a bloke called Adam, who is believed to started a family somewhere just outside the garden of Eden.

    Alternatively, if your earliest memory was seeing a small hunchback bloke and hearing something along the lines of 'Master, shall I pull the switch again?' - then the questions of where you and your ancestors were 'born' doesn't really affect you.

    Hope this helps.

    I obviously wasn't serious ;), my surname means Son of Adam apparently, but I'm not religious in any sense so it's meaningless to me lol.

    ​scientific tests were done on the sheep's behaviour to see if it could be likened to any other species, no conclusive evidence as yet but scientists are leaning towards some humans.

    Shaun, I know you weren't serious - just joking around - as I was. X)

    Anywho, with a name like Shaun (if that's your name), which is the Anglicized form of the Irish Sean (means John), and the fact you are strongly attracted to a football club with extremely strong Irish connections (came very close to being called Manchester Celtic before being called Manchester United), there is on this evidence the possibility you may be of Celtic stock - who some say can be traced back to Galatia (now modern day Turkey) - which begs the question; Do you like kebabs?

    No not particularly, I knew about the Irish link with my name though. My step-father whom help raise me was a United supporter and I met Bobby Charlton so that's probably why I support United. Although my step-father had Irish ancestors lol. But I got my mum's maiden name.

    Up until a few years ago it was still in the family name - I had minimal contact with some relatives but it was years ago

    Think it could apply to quite a few Surnames, depending on location; I was thinking along the lines of 'if Shaun had a Scottish connection - maybe a gt Granddad called 'Tar' who was always on the road.' X)

    But yes, it's never a good idea to give out too much personal information online.

    Let's just say that it would not be hard for anyone to work out who I was and I'd be easy to track down etc. You would be quite welcome to come for a coffee if you happen to venture North anytime in the future. I've got nothing to hide ;). I'm open and honest.

    The name 'Adam' itself is a bit of a puzzler.

    Perhaps originally Hebrew for 'Man' or 'Mankind', but some translate it as 'Red' (bet you're loving that, Shaun X) ).

    Also related to 'Adamah' the Hebrew word for Earth, and the Aramaic(?) translation 'made/to make' perhaps suggesting the 'red' is in regard to the 'reddish' earth of the area from which God made man (Adam)?

    Anywho, it's mostly interesting for peeps interested in religion, so probably not so much you, Shaun (the Red - for sure now X) ).
