Genealogy Research: How Far Back? - Page 7
I was able to trace my lineage back on my father's side to Scottland 18th Century, but the furthest I could go back on my mother's side was an ancestor who lived in Pennsylvania in the 19th Century; I'm not sure where in Europe my mother's side came from. I turned in one of those DNA tests though and it came back 39% Ireland (Though this includes the regions of Ireland, Scottland, and Wales) and 30% Scandinavia which I did not expect. My parents told me that they believed my family came primarily from England and Germany but that's not how my DNA seems to match up.
