My immediate family is private but you can see more if you start with my grandparents,
My family has been in North America for 400 years, so its no surprise that my DNA ethnicity estimate reads New England and Nova Scotia, and WikiTree shows the specifics. For example, 595 of my ancestors immigrated from Europe to colonial New England: some on the Mayflower (1620), and 380 others during the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640).
My family has been in Canada for over 270 years, much longer than the country has existed. Of the 122 ancestors who migrated from Europe or New England to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick or Prince Edward island, 86 arrived before the American Revolution, and the last couple arrived in 1816, over 200 years ago.
