Best we could manage was Emily Marks (grand daughter of Marks of Marks and Spencers fame); village of Walkington in Yorkshire is named after family on mum's side; Hartley's jam founder; and Harland of Harland and Wolff fame. Oh, and some tenuous link to the Duke of Northumberland!

The results are in and fuck I am apparently 27% Scottish which is interesting as I am not aware of any Scottish ancestry on either side of the family.

I saw a tweet this morning which made me chuckle..  somebody tweeted, I just paid £75 to find out this..  and posted a picture of their result - which showed 100% European, 100% English/Irish.

Tempted by this, but strongly suspect I'd find multiple generations of West Country Peasants.

I had that with my first DNA test, but I was 100% German! with Ancestry I have 0% German ethnicity.

That was with MyHeritage DNA testing, I complained and never got my money back as they said there was too broad a database for european so the results would be broadly similar! sounds like bullshit, I would suggest that people avoid that one based on mine and a friends DNA test which came back similar.

Ancestry seem to have the broadest DNA database.

I was expecting that and my 66%+ British north European seems to be centred (As expected) on Berks/Wilts/Glos/Oxon, but there is some unexpected Cornwall there.

As noted earlier the shocker is the 27% Scottish as no idea where that comes from and no welsh which surprised me as our surname does possibly have welsh origins (albeit it also has Oxfordshire origins so perhaps we are that wing!)

Also have links to settlers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania!

Ancestry do a free 14 day trial. I did that and traced back both sides of my family to around 1600. Haven't done a DNA test though

Did this too, it was really good.

With the DNA test things it's worth looking at the details of the companies that are offering the analysis; some use much more specific individual tracing than others. I've not had one but would be really interested.

Anyone feel a little uneasy about a private company gaining some detailed scientific information on you from one of these tests? Many write into their smallprint that they will never use it for anything else or sell it on. Others don't mention that.

Its interesting, but has anyone managed to back up the results with good old fashioned research?

I don't know if they are accurate or DNA horoscope

Hell yeah. I donít trust anyone. FFS even the government cannot keep a 100% lid on its IT systems, commercial enterprises are fucking worse.

I have batch and theyre absolutely spot on. I've been contacted by relatives based on the DNA results and contacted others. I've gone through the DNA results and they have been brilliant in building my tree.
No skeletons although there is a 2nd cousin we don't quite understand in New York. I'm working with another cousin in Illinois to work it out.
I was very sceptical but as usual was wrong.
I'm going to plough through my wife's DNA results soon but they look pretty spot on also

Pretty sure the whole family tree thing rather than DNA testing has been done previously on here, I will look for the thread and merge them.
