I have investigated my ancestry since 2008 using Ancestry.com and The Morse Society . My cousin sent her dad’s DNA for analysis. To our surprise we learned that at some point along the line there was a non Morse father. This information upset my Lutheran cousin and added another layer of mystery to the already puzzling quest to find all the available information on my ancestry. Now Ancestry.com is compiling a new database that will compare DNA submitted within the site. I am on a waiting list to send my own sample and be told, racially, geographically, who I am. I have been thinking recently about modern Europe and the history of migration and war that has made the map what it is today. I find this DNA map to be fascinating, telling an important, changing story. I look forward to tracing my own DNA with this map.
A genetic map of Europe plotting the genetic relationship between 23 populations reveals that Finns and Germans are the most “typical” Europeans.
