Leaf 2 Roots Genealogy

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

Finding your roots from your leaves. I have been researching my genealogy for almost 20 years. My parents had often said that they believed that we had Native America blood on my father s side, they also said that we were mostly German, English, Irish, Scottish, and a bit Swedish. This information came from my grandparents and some work that my mom s mom had done when she took a course in Genealogy many years back. I wanted to find the Indian blood. My father, brother and I all tanned very well, we never burned, we have high cheek bones and broad noses. So, I started looking on the internet and found the 1870 census for Hendricks County, Indiana and found my 4th great grandfather. We knew that he had come from England and settled in Indiana, and sure enough there he was. As the years went by, more and more information became available on the internet, and I have collected a vast amount of information. I learned how to visit libraries and use microfiche; I have also traveled to many counties, finding cemeteries, and other local history sites. After 20 years of research, I could not find a link to the Native America blood line, so I took a DNA test and got my answer. REGION APPROXIMATE AMOUNT Europe 98% Europe West 53% Scandinavia 18% Ireland 15% Great Britain 10% Trace Regions 2% Iberian Peninsula < 1% Europe East < 1% West Asia 2% Trace Regions 2% Caucasus 1% Middle East < 1% You can t find what you don t have. The dark skin, eyes, hair and other features must come from the tiniest traces of my DNA. Starting in September, I will be taking a Certificate Course in Genealogy; I hope that by the end of the year I will have not only that certificate, but the certificate from the Board of Professional Genealogist. I look forward to helping you find the answers you have been asking.
