yakmans_dad: I did the DNA test sold by Ancestry.com and have been waiting for the results.  I'm expecting English and German all the way back to Adam.

We discovered two possible Jewish surnames in my maternal grandfather's line, but nothing close enough to let me be a citizen of Israel. (I think you qualify under the Right of Return if Hitler would have had you killed: 1 grandparent.) But they are also German surnames: Stern and Wolf. I've found Irish surnames, and one whole line came from Switzerland, but the Swiss will show up as ethnically German, and I doubt that the DNA tests are fine grained enough to differentiate between English and Irish.

The most surprising is the possibility that one of my great grandfathers family came from Belgium. Yes. That's the kind of slam-bang life I lead. I linked surprise and Belgium.


The best test is making waffles, I'm sure you could find some volunteers to see how Belgian you really are.
