75% Swedish & 25% European (possibly Irish???). My Mother is 100% Swedish/ bio-father is the unknown.

He is 75% Swedish and then 25% I don't know...I've heard Irish, but don't know for sure. I tell my kids they are Swedish because my hubby is Heinz 57!! :P My daughter (adopt. from S. Korea) thought she was Swedish too!! :) VERY upset when she found out she wasn't!!

I’ve had three genealogy tests done, at Family Tree DNA, and the results for the “Total” DNA test were:

100% Indo-European

0% African

0% East Asian

0% Native American

Those are the major groups that the world's population belong to, and many people have percentages of more than one type. This is considered accurate, if I remember correctly, for 6 generations back. I don’t think that FTDNA does this particular test anymore.

My direct female line (mtDNA) is type K, which has been traced back to the Austrian/Italian alps some 18,000 years ago. She (the ancestor known as "Katrine") probably was a gatherer - living off of berries, small game, fish, and other easily obtained foods. Here's some more info about mtDNA:

The 5200 year old corpse of the “Iceman”, which was discovered in 1991 by hikers in the Alps, has my mtDNA halpotype ("K"): http://www.american.edu/TED/iceman.htm

I think that this guy definitely didn’t have gluten in his diet, lol! It is believed, due to marks on his body, that these Europeans had used acupuncture thousands of years before the Asians. It has been surmised that he may have been a shaman, due to the herbs that he may have been carrying. It is also believed that he could have died from an attack, possibly from a rival group, due to evidence found during the examination of the corpse.

I have traced, through paper-trail and historical research, my female line back to 17th century England, when she migrated to Massachusetts.

My direct male (Y-DNA) line is E3B, These y-lines are found in Europe, Western Asia (Middle East), and North and East Africa. My ancestor probably migrated up North a very long time ago, during the Neolithic expansion. My great-grandfather came to the U.S. from Germany, or Bavaria, in the 19th century. I have been in touch with other people whose fathers' ancestors were Swedish, Dutch, German and other Northern European nationalities, who also have E3b Y-DNA. http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join....e&projecttype=G

My genealogy research (paper trail) shows that I have:

British (including several Mayflower passengers)

German

Dutch

Irish

Possibly some French
