I was not the best science student in school. Reading, yes. Writing, fine. Math, surprisingly, yes. Science, no way. Don’t ask me why. My father is a scientist. My grandfather is a scientist. Apparently I didn’t get those genes.
So, months after getting my Ancestry DNA results, I’m trying to figure out what they mean. Anyone else in the same boat?
Some of it I understand. My ancestors came from the British Isles and France. Well, I knew that already.
My ancestors traveled to Acadia. Knew that.
Ancestry has extremely high confidence that my DNA matches the DNA of my grandparents. Knew that.
I’m related to Aucoins, Penissons and Giroirs. Knew that.
What I’d really like to know if it’s true there was a Spanish grandmother in the family tree as my granny always insisted. Still don’t know that.
