Project: Genealogy

I have an interest in my family history.  Now obviously I am not going to give too much away as to who the members of my family are, but I do want to document some of the more interesting things that I find.


As of 2022, I have traced elements of my family back to the 1500s.  I have also completed DNA testing that shows my DNA comes from Jutland and Europe in general.  I think from the DNA results, we can conclude that it is likely part of my family migrated to the UK in the Anglo Saxon invasion which is dated between 400-600AD.

This means I have a roughly 1000 year gap to fill. 


I had my DNA tested by 23andMe just to understand the basics of my genetic make up, and this is what I got back:

I am 100% anglo Saxon apparently

My mother's side comes from Jutland so likely a Jute.

On my paternal side, the haplogroup is:
... and essentially this means that his ancestors would have been in Western Europe as far as the Atlantic coast.  So I think it is also possible that his ancestors came over as part of the anglo Saxon migration.

Overall my genetic make up is western european, which as far as I can tell, means essentially anglo Saxon. With my maternal haplogroup indicating Jute ancestry.
