What European ancestry are you of?

Post by Christsservant20 »

I would like to quickly tell a littlebit about myself. I'm a legal citizen in the USA. I have been living down in Florida for 21 years. I was originally born in Eastern Europe. I grew up in Ukraine, born of Hungarian parents. ( That part of Ukraine used to belong to Greater Hungary ) I'm just curious here about everyone's ancestry since of course every white American has his or her ancestors coming over from somewhere in Europe, so if you wish I would like to know; What European ancestry are you of?

I myself am overwhelmingly German on both sides of my family with a very little bit of Swiss on my father's side and a smattering of Irish from my mother.

Scottish but the founder of the clan was from Norway as confirmed by my blood type and genetic testing of a family member. Nordic/Celtic mix basically.

Father's side: originally Swiss migrants from the early 1700s surnamed Boni. The people they married appear to be English and Irish from North Carolina. Father's mother was damned near pure Irish (Thompson).

Mother's side: Just about all English. Surname Beckham. Mother's mother was a Courtney. The Courtney's are mysterious because I can't trace them down.

According to ancestry.com I'm English and German and "Scotch Irish" which means Lowland Scot Presbyterian.

How did you get that answer out of them?

I've toyed with the idea of getting one of those DNA tests, but God knows if they're even accurate. Look what happened to Craig Cobb.

I've been squatting since Monday - Jan 02, 2017.

I'm going to stand up now, and get on with things.
