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: seven families were on the Mayflower (1620), and 380 others followed 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, 10 were Loyalists, and the last couple arrived in 1816, over 200 years ago.
Some migrated as children
Others as elders
Some were distinguished
and others names have been forgotten.
Some died young
Others lived to a ripe old age
I found clergy
There were soldiers
and a large number of farmers and carpenters.
