My cousin Tim is seeing what he can find about my father’s generational line, because it appears they came to Canada from either Ireland since 100% of the male population in Western Ireland is said to belong to Haplogroup R1b or from England as 70% of the male population in southern Britain belongs to Haplogroup R1b. My ancestry summary looks like this:

  • Western/Central Europe      56-58%
  • British Isles:                          35%
  • Scandinavia:                            7%
  • Possible Native American:          1%
  • Possible Iberian (Spain):            1%

Bottom line? If we could go back far enough, we just might discover that most of us (if not all of us) are related to most of us (if not all of us) in some way or another. Interesting concept. And since our brains and hearts are all the same color, all the nonsense about ‘better than’ or ‘less than’ is just that: nonsense—in my brain’s opinion.
