Ancestry – DNA

I did the Ancestry DNA test and got the results back  within three or four months.  According to the test results i am 66% British Isles, 24 % Southern Europe, 6% Eastern Europe and 4% Uncertain (must be the alien genes).

This is an interesting result since i am 100% French, both sides of my family flow through Ontario and Quebec to France. So, my whole tree going back over 300 years is in Quebec or France. Why no mention of France?

One reason could be that my genes are recent arrivals in France.  This DNA test is supposed to look at your genetic ancestry which is longer than 300 years.  Therefore, i have made up my story and that is the one i will stick with until proven otherwise.

My 24% Southern Europe genetic make-up may very well be Italy.  My genes could very well have been part of the Roman invasion of Britain 2,000 years ago (around AD 43).  By the 5th and 6th century AD the Roman occupation is in decline.  However, my Southern European genes probably stayed for a while, thus making them 66% British.  I can only assume that at some point my genes, or whoever was carrying them, decided that the food and wine was better in France and they moved there.
