So I got a DNA test for Christmas.  I have been telling you all that I am mostly Czech.  I know for certain that my ancestors came from Bohemia.  If the DNA test is to be trusted, however, my ancestors were Germanic people living in Bohemia rather than Slavs. 

It is a bit of a shock to discover that what you have always thought you were isn't so.  It is especially true you have no love of Germans or Germany.

Jawohl Herr RD.... smile

There was just 8% Slavic.  The rest was Germanic with a 10% Swedish surprise.  I had no idea.  Of course none of it matters in the least.

Here is what was creepy.  They had a list of traits ranging from ear type, eye color, finger length and on and on.  They got every one exactly correct.  They even said I have brown hair with a propensity to have red haired children.  I have brown hair and my youngest has red hair.

They also pulled my relatives from their database and matched me with my first cousin in Seattle.  Amazing.

The Germans because of her arrogance ruled Europe after the fall of Rome. The Germanic King, Charlemagne, brought Europe out of the Dark Ages and into civilization. Most of Europe's royal family have German blood. They are a very creative people but such brutality to hold on to power!

There is no genetic difference between northern Germans and the English.  Not that can be discerned.  The Anglo-Saxons of Britain came from Germany and the Normans came from Scandinavia and Germany.  It's all the same stuff.

So, yes.  We are cousins.  Very likely much closer than 20 times removed.

The Normans invaded England in 1066. They were Vikings ( Vikings were a Germanic race from Scandinavia) Celts, who were in England are of a different bloodline.

PS RD:

My research shows that you are right. Europeans are a mixed race of peoples. Mostly of Germanic blood!

Even the Celts migrated to Britain from central Europe.  The Brits are made up of the original stone age inhabitants, Celts, Anglo-Saxons, Danes and Normans.  In other words lots Germanic peoples made up the English.  The Welsh, Scots and Irish didn't get so much mixing and are generally a bit less Germanic than the English.

Again, none of this means anything.  It is just trivia.
