I’m a great fan of Ancestry products and was happy to submit my DNA sample for checking! This is a fun video with a bit of help from a Pizza and with funforlouis to check my results against his.
More diverse videos will be appearing too!”



  1. You have to remember that Western Europeans didn't just come to Britain from France. Although the French are counted as such, Western Europeans would also include Anglo-Saxons and such peoples who migrated to Britannia in the 4th and 5th centuries.

    I'm not sure how diverse my pizza would be, but I can tell you, mine is never left to cool off like yours, I always eat my pizza hot and right away!

  7. Wow surprise, you’re European.

  8. I'm in your DT

  9. Wait, what happened to the pizza ?? Love the cool graphic of the laptop screen. I think I might give the DNA test a go just for kicks.

  10. I really enjoyed watching this video 🙂

  11. Great DNA results video! Thanks for sharing it! I wanted to share a few thoughts for you to consider. Each parent gives 50% of their DNA to their children, but each child inherits a different 50% of their DNA (there is some overlap of course). That means that while your son has 50% of your DNA, it won't be an even 50%. In other words, if you're 50% ____, your son may only inherit 10% of that, but 40% of the remaining. Also, ethnicity for those of UK ancestry is difficult because of the history of the UK. Western Europe DNA is high usually because of Anglo-Saxon AND Norman conquest. Irish will be high for those from Wales and Scotland. Many Brits also have a percentage of Scandinavian because of the Vikings (which Normans also share DNA with). So, often our DNA ethnicity estimate can reflect much deeper origins ie. Anglo-Saxon and Norman invasions as well as more recent immigration. PS. Where in the UK were you raised? I'm a bit of a linguistic nerd (in addition to genealogy) so I noticed you say a few words pretty distinctively: about, out, here, DNA, discount, now, know, thousands, peninsula.

    I am from Lancashire,  I got 48% british  34%euro west.  9% ireland  4% iberian   3% scandinavia   2% finland.

  13. Remember that borders are relatively new. People traveled and Ancestry goes back 2,000 years.

  14. I am Mexican so you already know I'm a mix of a whole Lotta stuff

  15. Amy Dixon says:

    I love that you can really see your teaching side come out!

  16. MrOrange says:

    My pizza wouldn't be as excited as your's. LOL! I am from the United States and AncestryDNA says I am 93% Great Britain.

  17. Alan Galli says:

    Glad you are back on Youtube, another great video.

  18. I traced my ancestry back to William the Conqueror, I have a direct line of descent from his sister! It took me 10 years of to find it but when I did….highlight of my life!

  19. Who Do You Think You Are, should do YouTubers.

  20. I would love to see more about your family history! Maybe some stories that you have uncovered? Talk about interesting family members? Possibly even show your tree? I find it facinating and youve clearly done your research! A great video

  21. WhirlOmar says:
