Chris DeRose is an on-air contributor and content producer for You and Me This Morning on WCIU TV in Chicago who recently took the AncestryDNA test. Growing up in a very Italian home, he was surprised to find a wee bit of Irish runs through his veins.
Ancestry family historian, Michelle Ercanbrack, reviews his ethnic background noting in addition to Italian and Irish, there is Caucasus, Spanish and other regions that make up his complete genetic profile. But according to his parents, he is still 100% Italian. And who are we to disagree with them?
Find out how Italian you are by taking the AncestryDNA test too!
