My DNA was tested by AncestryDNA and 23andMe. My Ancestry results:
England, Wales & Northwestern Europe = 68% Germanic Europe = 21% Ireland & Scotland = 7% Sweden = 4%
23andMe results: British and Irish = 54.3% French & German = 27.3% Scandinavian = 1.5% Broadly Northwestern European = 15.0% Southern European = 0.5% Spanish & Portuguese = 0.5% Broadly Southern European = 0.1% Broadly European = 1.2%
Education: I graduated from Hancock Central High School, Maxwell, Hancock, Indiana.
I later obtained an Associate Degree in Computer Information Systems from Gwinnett Technical College, Lawrenceville, Gwinnett, Georgia.
Mother of four (4) grown sons and Grandmother of four (4) grandchildren.
I became interested in genealogy at the age of 13, when my Paternal Grandmother mentioned we have Native American blood, however after all these years of research I have not found it.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions.
Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.
Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.
PS If links do not work in an email from WikiTree, try them from the comment section of your profile page.
