Story Time {Vol. 11}

Hey y'all,

It's finally the weekend! Each Saturday I pose a question and I would love for you to answer the same question in the comments. I have loved getting to know my readers through these posts and you can catch up with the previous questions here.

Which country did your family come from?

My parents actually did one of those DNA testing kits a few years ago and reconfirmed that we are mostly Western European. My Dad is Irish (potato famine caused my ancestors to immigrate from county Cork) and my Mom is mostly German (there were Kerstings in the phone book where we lived in Germany) with some British and Scandinavian.

Have you taken an DNA ancestry test? Where is your family from?

  1. I've never done one of the DNA tests before, but my dad got super into genealogy stuff when I was little and I remember looking at records and stuff with him - he tracked his side of the family super far back! They're from Scotland and Ireland, and my mom's side I think is mostly British. It can be so fun to learn about that stuff! :)

  2. I'm a new reader! This is my first visit. I just recently sent in my DNA kit and am anxiously awaiting the results. I've done a lot of genealogy research on my family and, from what I've found so far, I'm 3/4 English/British and 1/4 Irish.

  3. I've always wanted to do one of those tests, finding out the results would be so much fun!
