Another interesting potential with autosomal DNA.

This is really strange because a lot of my great grandparents came from Ireland. Go figure.

I was quite surprised!

His maternal grandfather’s family came to the colonies from County Down. We haven’t been able to trace the family back any further than that immigrant ancestor (William Patrick Hanvey), so we don’t know where the family came from, if they were not originally Irish. We are assuming that since he was from what is now Northern Ireland, his ancestors must have been transported to County Down from either Scotland or England. My husband has 70% Great Britain DNA, which is even more than today’s current residents of England. This was a very large shock (regarding the lack of Irish DNA). We will probably have his mother tested, or one of his siblings, in the near future.
