Ancestry Updates

This is probably totally boring to most people, but I think it’s fun, especially trying to tie back to my favorite Rosemary Sutcliff Britain before the Anglo-Saxon invasion. I want to be related to those fictional characters! Yes, I’m nuts.

Original Test

Update 1

I was so sad I lost Scotland/Ireland. I know I don’t have Irish really, that is a very distinctive pattern of movement and culture in American history that would have shown up in genealogy, geography, names, and religion which doesn’t in our family. Whereas what I’ve figured out from genealogy is that Scottish makes sense, but probably Scottish before anyone came over here.

Update 2

Current update.

Good, I got my Celtic/Rosemary Sutcliff/Scotland back! Although per Ancestry, England would still included ancient Brits not just Anglo-Saxon (and Norman too), they didn’t take out everyone, I guess like most people assumed.

    This is so cool! I loved the slightly unpredictable rollercoaster of changes you had for the ones you hoped would stay. It sounds like what I would do and it’s just funny really.

    • Livia Rose

      Yes, Rosemary Sutcliff Britain is such an important feeling connection. Gotta tie favorite books, history, and genealogy altogether!

    Did you pop open the details on Scotland? They include Ireland in there if you have any, but you have to click “Scotland” in the main list. Mom & I both got the latest update a couple days ago, & hers merely says Scotland when she clicks it, while mine includes Northern Ireland & Scotland & shows a large portion of Ireland on the map when I open it up. high fives myself

    Also, I don’t find this at all boring! 🙂

      I haven’t, I really need to sit down and explore all the historical details they have on there, as well as build my tree. I just get overwhelmed and want to do to much . . . as well as procrastinate.
