Months ago I had my dad, Lauro Garza Marroquin” do an AncestryDNA kit. I purchased it last time that ancestry had a special and I bought one for him and one for my mom (you can read more about it here: Testing My Parent’s DNA)”. I got the results a few weeks ago but I have not shared them with anyone other than my mediate family. Today I want to share them with everyone and thus the reason for this post.
As I was doing the DNA test on him he asked me “Pa que quieres esto?” what do you want this for he asked. I told him so that you can know who you are. He responded “Yo se quien soy, yo soy Lauro Garza Marroquin” I know who I am I am Lauro Garza Marroquin. I promptly realized that I had said the wrong thing, I told him that it was so that he could know the ethnic background of his ancestors and get an idea of where they may have had come from.
Off the bat I saw the following results:
On my own results Italy/Greece was 17% but I was surprised that my dad had 41%. This is the only comparison I will make between him and I since I plan on writing another psot where I will compare his results with mine and my moms.
Here are the full ethnicity Results:
I was surprised that my dad has 3% Africa since I don’t recall finding any documents to indicate that he may have had African ancestry but it is there. I honestly thought that my African ancestry would only bee through my moms side where I have found documents. His Native American is 17% and I was surprised that it was that low. I just wish I had more information on these ancestors but I have had found documents about my ancestors that hint/say they had Indian blood.
Another result that I was surprised with and was not expecting was that he has 14% Great Britan and the 4% Scandanavian but I have yet to find any ancestors from there. Let me know your opinions in the comments section of this post.
