Well, I have received basic results.  I am 75% European Jewish, 23% Eastern European and 2% undetermined.   My friend Carolyn calls this the “Mutt Factor.”  I am sure of limited French and Mongol ancestry, but now have some basis.  No exact matches yet, minimum third cousins, but we will get there.  More as I get more

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.

  1. I’ve been debating DNA testing for myself. My brother’s been doing our family tree, and has been unearthing a lot of discrepancies….such as several ancestors nowhere near where they were supposed to be in a given time frame according to the records, or our ancestors supposedly from Paris who actually came from somewhere in the Pyrenees.

      It’s a start to fill in the blanks. We chose Ancestry.com, because it has the largest base and the fact it was mentioned on the show Who Do You Think You Are.
