Family Finder DNA

Several years ago I undertook a mtDNA test and, honestly, I am still not any wiser at understanding the results. However, recently, I upgraded my test sample and today I received my Family Finder results from FamilyTreeDNA.

Interesting to read that I am 56% Scandinavian, 41% Western and Central European and only 3% British.

JF ethnic makeup

The bulk of my ancestry that I have traced back to the 17th and 18th Centuries is made up from Scotland, Ireland, and England with a very small percentage from the Hessen district in Germany so I have no idea why the Scandinavian and Western and Central European figures are so high.

I now need to track down a simplified guide to DNA so I can sit back and study these new results.
