Want to skip the background? Go to 3:31 😉 I grew up being told I was 3/4 English, 8th Italian, 16th Portuguese and 16th Welsh, but after years of being asked if I’m Asian/Middle Eastern/Latina/North African/Greek/Turkish/[insert other olive-skinned ethnicity here], I finally took the plunge and ordered a test from AncestryDNA.
My Grandpa grew up in India as a child of an officer in the British Raj, and the family has always had doubts as to whether his mother was really Portuguese. Time to find out!
I later put the raw data into GEDmatch and it’s been showing up a teeny tiny amount of Native American which, as a Brit, is really quite baffling. Guessing just an anomaly!
