    Where are we from??
    This was such a fun, hilarious video to film. Honestly, we were a little disappointed in our Ancestry results - not because of our heritage specifically, but because we were under the impression that our results would be much more detailed than they actually were.
    Either way, it was fun (and surprising) to figure out our heritage. And now be sure you join along on our "Chasing our Ancestry" series as we visit all of the countries we are from!

    Hey everyone! We've been so happy to see that this is such a popular topic. Due to several people's feedback in the comments, we will be uploading our DNA data to a few other sites (such as My Heritage) to see if we can find out any new info. Subscribe to the channel to see that video when it comes out in a few weeks!

      Such a lovely couple! I went to Living DNA for my Irish blood and found out that my ancestors came from the Belfast area in Northern Ireland. But they also said that I had Spanish blood in me. NOT.

        English is also often Danish dna, because of the Viking raids

          Sweden is also probably Denmark and some Norwegian as they were all Vikings. And mingled together back in the day

            Upload your raw DNA also to GEDMatch. They have a lot of different formulas to look at. You also can opt to share or not. By that I mean you can let your DNA be used in criminal cases. :)

              Wow you are what a true brit looks like....I dont think theres any brit with 100%... 71% is very your results through gedmatch and to get a more accurate breakdown of your tribes and regions and maybe post another video....gedmatch has lots of ethnicity calculators which are more accurate than any DNA test done....even if you do my heritage or ancestry which is better gedmatch will give you the same results...

                Waiting on my results now so doing my family tree while waiting. So far, all my relatives are from the same county in England going back to the 1500s. I guess I'm going to be 100 % UK too haha.

                  Ireland is not in the UK so how can he be 100% UK?.

                  Sarcypants That is really cool that it showed you exactly the county. That would be an amazing experience to travel to and visit!

                We all got the possible regions(counties, cities, provinces) on the countries assigned from 23and me. For examples, my father in law were County of Cork, Dublin, London, my mother in law were Rhineland-Palatinate
                Bavaria(Germany), Greater London(England) and
                Na h-Eileanan an Iar
                Glasgow City and Highland in Scotland....Mine results were amazing. The city they assigned was where my paternal side of family has been living for 400 years. They also showed the provinces before that which exactly what my family has said all along.

                  Hey Tori, there are/were German minorities in Hungary (for centuries), there are still villages (or areas) where most of the peoples have German origin, and as time goes on, they are losing their German identity and consider themselves as Hungarians. Possibly your great-great-grandfather was also in that category, who had German origin, but Hungarian identity. Do you know his last name?
                  Greetings from Kisújszállás! ;)

                    @Tori and Nathan Travel No, i have not heard that name, i heard similar, and google only suggest that what i heard "Doszpoth", what is similar, also rare, and i don't know if that could have a German origin or not.
                    I know you were here, i was translating in that camp :D

                    Wow, honestly I had no idea! That's so helpful, thanks for sharing! His last name got American-ized when he migrated here to "Dozpat". When I researched on my family tree on Ancestry, some of his travel documents spelled it "Doszpath". Have you ever heard that name before? I think it's not a very common Hungarian last name.
                    Also, we have been to Kisújszállás - we stayed there for a week and did a summer camp for some kids at a local school. We visited Spa Kumania every night and it was so relaxing :) It's beautiful there, I miss it!

                  Germanic Europe? German's borders changed hundreds of time over the years. She says her great grandfather was pure Hungarian but the test says like 4%. How can you rationalize these results? They did this test on identical twins and came out with different results. I think someone sent in their cat's saliva and got some regular results. The majority of Americans have ancestors from either Ireland or Germany so as long as they put those two in you'll think it's got something to it. What a load. How can anyone believe this nonsense? Well for $30 what do you want.

                    Ireland is not in the UK ffs, Irish and English are genetically completely different, also the celts never came to Ireland.

                    I got 62% NW Europe and 4% Norway on ancestry, transferred my results to MyHeritage which gave me 38% Scandinavian and 25% Balkan (Slavic) my ancestors came from Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, England, and Prussia but ancestry didn’t specify it on my results. Gedmatch also showed Dutch, Germany, Romania and Hungary as my population groups. You guys should both transfer your results to get specific regions, Gedmatch is great at that and it’s free!! A lot of NW Europeans have Scandinavian roots

                      Missi Reason how so? I’m still confused by them because ancestry didn’t give me those regions in specific

                    You may want to try LivingDna an English company or upload your results to that site possibly. Uploading to other sites can also give you different ethnicity breakdowns as well. Doing your family tree should help you pinpoint places you want to visit.

                      livingdna are being extremely slow at the moment. lots of people have not received their results. so if you want to try livingdna be prepared to wait for quite some time (of course there are exceptions but yeah) i'd strongly suggest going with 23andme instead
