DNA Test Results

UPDATE: 25 Oct 2017
I have now tested both of my parents, 3 of my siblings, my maternal uncle, and my paternal great-uncle. This consists of all my oldest living family members from my branches of my family lines. All of these tests were done on Ancestry and the raw data was uploaded to GEDmatch, GenesisFTDNA, and MyHeritage. Only my own DNA has been uploaded to DNA.Land so far. I use to have kit numbers added to my public tree and profiles on many of these pages trying to be helpful to other researchers, what I’ve learned is that there is no collaboration when I do this. The other people have everything laid out for them, so don’t feel the need to contact or share anything with me. So, I’m removing those kit numbers and now I will happily share upon request and collaboration.


I have received my results from the new Ethnicity & Genealogical DNA testing at Ancestry.com. This test became available on 03 May 2012.  I am excited about where this will lead me because in many of the family lines that I have been researching the paper trail has stopped, or at least what I have access to. This test should help me to pick up the trail in a new area and connect me with other cousins researching their family tree that I would have never met otherwise. Who knows how much we can help each other and what we will find.

Update: Results will change occasionally because the more people who take the test, the more markers can be matched. Mine has changed a couple of times since I took the test. Here are my latest test results as of 14 Mar 2015

These are older results

Here are my results and a little of the information that I was given about those results

66% Scandinavian

 “Looks like you may have some Viking blood in you. Your genetic ethnicity ties you to Scandinavia, which includes the modern-day nations of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. While the Vikings were feared by the coastal towns of medieval Europe as seaborne raiders and violent pillagers, they were also well-travelled merchants and ambitious explorers. They raided the Mediterranean coast of Africa, settled areas as far south as the Black Sea, and traded with the Byzantine Empire. And it was a Norse sailor, Leif Ericson, who is credited with being the first European to travel to North America—500 years before Columbus.”

25% British Isles

“You’re from North-Western Europe, an area including the modern-day United Kingdom and Ireland. It is a group of islands separated from France and the rest of continental Europe by the narrow English Channel. “

9% Southern European

“If you had to choose one region of Europe that has wielded the most influence over the course of western history, a strong candidate would be the land of your ancestors—an area that includes modern day Italy, Spain, and Portugal.”

  1. John Wellington Wyatt (1906-2001) was the third cousin of Asa Harmon Wyatt (1879-1942), my grand father, hence my third cousin twice removed.

    • Hi Bill, John was my grandpa. Always nice to meet a new cousin

  2. My tree can be found at http :// wyatt of virginia. tribalpages.com
    If you wish an invite, give me your email address. I must have your lineage to allow you to see the private portion (living persons)

  3. I see that you are a contributor to find a grave and have some graves listed for Estill Cemetery in Floyd County, KY. Can you explain to me where this cemetery is located?

  4. Henry Hunting shirt Sizemore begat Willis Sizemore who begat Tennessee Sizemore who begat Charley Hoskins who begat Harvey T. Hoskins who begat Harvey T Hoskins Jr. who begat ME Shannon Hoskins

    • Hi there cousin, nice to meet you

    • Hi Shannon and thanks for sharing your line. It looks like you and I are 6th cousins.

  5. Have you uploaded your results to Gedmatch?
    I would love to see if we match
    Anyone who has and would like to exchange Gedmatch kit #’s my email is
    sherrysgenealogy@gmail.com

    • Hi Sherry, I have uploaded to GedMatch. I didn’t see your e-mail in any of my matches. My Kit # is A369870 if you want to check the “One-to-one Compare”. It wouldn’t let me enter an email address as the kit number, so I couldn’t check that way. Let me know what you find. 🙂

  6. HI Beth, my Gedmatch is A227320. You do match with my mother’s cousin. His kit is A282955. The match is on chromosome 7. I descend from Mahalia Sizemore (1814?- 1860). My third great grandmother. DNA can be so random even when it goes back three generations!

  7. Hi Beth,

    You are a match on FTdna with Dennis Baker, who I am helping with his results. You share a good block of dna on #19. Dennis was adopted in 1946, but knows that his father who was English was called William Young. I see you have got Young on your list of family names, so wonder if I could see that bit of your tree or have a few names of your Youngs. Dennis is also on Gedmatch kit no A843145. His reference on FTdna is IN15794 and B268173

    Many thanks, Janet

    • Hi Janet, I looked through a few of my kits on GEDmatch and couldn’t find a match to the kit number that you mentioned. I manage 8 kits and am unable to search FTDNA with Dennis’s reference number. Could you tell me the name on the kit that I manage that you found the match to Dennis? That will help me find and try to help you. Thanks

      • Hi Beth,

        Yes, it is BC
        beth0607.wordpress.com
        You (or whoever) comes up as 5th – remote, 40/10, on #19
        Dennis has several other cousins who share exactly the same blocks as this person, which is why I have contacted you. Dennis is on FTdna twice, once using the transfer of his Ancestrydna results (B268173) and once doing the FF FTdna test himself (IN15794). It will be the latter you need. I think I have called him Dennis Baker or Dennis O Baker. He is also on Gedmatch A843145
        Many thanks, Janet

        • Hi Janet, OK that is my kit. I looked through my parents matches first and couldn’t find him. All of my DNA kits were done at Ancestry, I have have traced a lot of my matches there. Could you give me the ancestry username (the name used to log-in, if it’s different than the name on the kit) so that I can find the profile page the kit is under there? That would be the place that I could be most helpful.

          • Hi Beth. On Ancestrydna Dennis is called Dennis O’Connell-Baker. What are your and your parents’ kits called and I will look for them at my end.
            Many thanks, Janet

            • On all the sites, my dad is H.C. and my mom is M.W. On GEDmatch they are kits A578459 and A300408. Do you know how to search the member directory at Ancestry? If so, my username there is beth06071, you can go to my profile page and match your kits to mine. Then if you find a match you can message me from that match page, then I’ll see him and can see what our shared matches tell me.

  8. I finally found Dennis on FTDNA (had to search for O’Connell to find him).
    It says that we share 40 cM and our longest block is 10 cM. It tells me that we have no shared DNA matches in common.

    I searched his kit number in GEDmatch and got nothing in my matches. I pulled his kit up in the one-to-many and searched for any of my kits…no matches.

    Normally I would say it was a false match, but 40 cM is a pretty significant match. Hopefully Ancestry might be able to tell us something.

    The only Young that I have in my tree is Virginia Young. Everything that I have on her is here beth0607.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/mrin-49/

    • Hi Beth,

      Thank you so much for taking all that trouble. I have had a look at Virginia Young and a couple of trees take her back a couple of generations or so, but nothing that makes a connection with England, I fear. Dennis has several dna cousins sharing a block with you on #19, but that is interesting that you don’t share the same matches, suggesting that some of Dennis’ matches on #19 are paternal and some maternal.

      Many thanks again, Janet

  9. My brother and I both had our DNA done by ancestry. My kit #A884366 and his is #A 825612 Hope that our Davis line matches someone. We are also on GedMatch and mine is also on MyHeritage
