Thanks Strong Eagle.

Recently had my DNA ran i'm 100 percent European. Switzerland and Germany 59 percent, British and Irish 27 percent, broadly NW European 10 percent. There's a smattering of Iberian and Scandinavian.

Many years ago i got involved in family history and genealogy. The family whose name i bear came from Ketelshagen, Island Rugen, formerly Denmark. Island Rugen is now part of Germany.

Some in my family, including myself, have an inherited condition called Dupuytren's contracture that is rather common to families from northern Europe. The fingers and hands become crooked and contracted. At almost 80 years old my right hand is becoming a claw. When he passed away at age 96, my uncle could hardly hold a coffee cup.

My daughter made me spit in the tube and now I find out that I'm almost 1/4th Lithuanian along with Scottish, Irish, Swedish and Norwegian. 
My grandmother said her maiden name was Doyle. It turns out it was really Rastkauskis. Quite a difference. My brother thought he was 1/2 Irish even went to Ireland 6 or 8 times. I guess he'll have to go to Lithuania from now on.  Laughing

I sent in my mother's dna several years ago; she has died since.  I'm still getting names of relatives posted on her match.  ALL of them are from either Norway, Sweden or Finland.  Who'd have thought?

My own DNA showed me to be about 60% English - father's side gave me that.  About 1/5th Scandinavian with the remaining 20% divided among some others.  5% was Neanderthal.  I'll need to ask for a more detailed analysis in order for my Klingon dna to show up.

Now we can change his name from 'strong eagle' to "Eric the Eagle" and now he can use the term 'uffda' (shit happens) in Norwegian.   Smile

Strong Eagle and myself have fun hitting each other from time to time, he's the kind of guy that can take it or push back like I'm sure he may do, right bud. He has helped a lot of the members here with his knowledge on health, we thank you.

I hear you had a couple of very good friends, both from Norway and spoke the Dano-Norwegian koiné language when they wanted to say something that you were not to know about. Like you say, they were fair skinned and blondes (my only relief was "blondes jokes") which would get them going. We did everything together for over 50 years, one died from cigars a few years ago (cancer) the other has serious medical problems. I keep in touch with him once a week as he's on a walker and carrying an oxygen bottle, sad deal and still young at 60. He lives in eastern Colorado alone so other than calling him we can't help him like we would like too.

strong eagle we all have great family stories to remember, the problem is most don't put down what they know. Once another relation tries to tell what you know as correct gets enhanced. That old relation that was a "chamber maid" in the 1700's has now been referred to as a "Queen" in her native land. If the truth was know she may have cleaned up after a Queen.

I have found so much crap that my mother and her mother wrote that's 'word of mouth' which is a fairy tale without documentation. I told them that and they just look at me like "what the hell is he talking about".  I really would get upset with these two when still alive and other family members with like tales.

Bottom line - put everything down you know, then do some research to prove what you wrote, family Bibles, journals, tax records, deeds and so on are good resources. Don't put it off, down the road your family will thank you for your efforts.

My dna is about 60% Brit with 20% Scandinavian.  I don't know much at all about my ancestry.  My wife is a geneologist but has not spent as much time on my ancesters except enough to find they came to Viginia in the 1700s.  I'm still studing conversational English.  study 

I'm pretty sure I'm not decended from anyone famous or a historical figure; just those that got hanged for witches and poaching.

We did the DNA using three different sources and found slightly different results. That being said the results were a small margin of difference on percentages for both of us.

I mentioned "Ancestry.com" and how records have gotten changed, my wife will input family information and then someone changes it. This business has an office building about 2 miles from us and we know several people that work there. We were told when the LDS Church sold this business to the Germany firm the policies on people's input changed, no longer guarded or over seen like before. The wife finds that someone will get on the wrong family ties and input a bunch of things that are not related to her family, then is it hell to get this wrong information removed.

My wife is a geneologist and has two books to her credit.  She's very smart (was in "Who's Who in American colleges & Universities) and is relentless in her research.  She's done good work so far in translating the dna results into family trees.  Ah, but so much more work is to be done, mainly my side.

Surprisingly, I was also part basset hound; which is great since I dearly love bassets.  We've owned a petite basset griffon, Shorty, and Micky, my precious basset mix.  I am passionate about dogs and I like cats a lot as well.  Maybe it has something to do with me being born in the year of the dog.  Klingon, yes; my great grandfather was allegedly a Klingon General.  bounce
