David was born in 1952. David Ackland ... [1]

David was born in Hamilton, On. and lived in various area locations - West 5th. St., Burlington St., Margaret Ave. Stoney Creek (where he attended Memorial Public - K to 3), East 26th. St (attended Eastmount Public 4 to 6, G.L. Armstrong 7 & 8, Southmount Secondary 9 to 12, and Mohawk College. As a youth enjoyed Scouting (17th Wolf Pack), hiking, biking, drawing, film making. He trained in Electrical/Electronics and applied same for 32 years at Dofasco's coke and iron div. Settling in Upper Stoney Creek, On. he assisted in raising two superb children. In retirement Dave enjoyed travel, tennis, volleyball, hiking, biking, video making, and woodcarving.

David's (2014) DNA test processed by FamilyTreeDNA.com reveals that his Ethnic Makeup is 98% European - (38% British Isles, 22% Southern Europe, 20% Western and Central Europe, 18% Scandinavia) with 2% Middle Eastern - (2% North Africa).

Family Tree DNA April 2017 Updates to myOrigins: European 90% - 86% British Isles, 4% Southeast Europe (consists of present day populations from the areas of Italy, Greece, and the western Balkan states from Bulgaria to Croatia), 8% Jewish Diaspora Shepardi (descended from the Jews who lived in the Iberian Peninsula, Spain & Portugal, in the late 15th century).

How my Mother's Scandinavia content rose to 15% from 5% while mine went to 0% from 18% baffles me.

David, I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. You appear to have several interests.
