The majority of my roots originate in France then on to Canada. I have 29 known Acadian First Families as direct ancestors. Through my paternal great grandmother I also have direct ancestors from England and Ireland. In addition, some of my maternal 10th/11th/12th great grandparents were part of the Puritan Great Migration.
I am now hooked on genealogy and was so happy to find WikiTree where I can see how every one of us come together.
I am the family tree editor for my parents who have both done the Ancestry DNA Test. Their most recent (AUG 2021) Ancestry DNA ethnicity estimate update is as follows: Dad is 83% French, 11% Ireland, 3% Germanic Europe, 3% England & Northwestern Europe. Mom is 90% French and is fluent in the language, 6% Germanic Europe, 4% Norway.
The WikiTree Ancestor Explorer, shows I have 105 unique ancestors and 66 duplicate ancestors (additional lines of descent from a unique ancestor) within 20 generations who meet the Filles du Roi list criteria. This list includes Filles à marier.
Recently, the new version (2022) to the WikiTree Ancestor Explorer, shows I have 168 unique ancestors 239 duplicate ancestors (additional lines of descent from a unique ancestor) within 20 generations who meet the Acadian list criteria".
