March is traditionally the month we are all “a little bit Irish”.
my dna is almost 40% matching dna in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Welsh dna may come from grandfather, where the Pate/Blount line takes us to rumors of Prince Owain IV of Wales (1353-1416). But so far these are unsubstantiated rumors.
Family History shows my grandmother’s paternal grandparents (Kilroy/Deignan) came from Ireland during the Potato Famine. (see blog entry “from Ireland”). Her maternal side (McNeel/Currie/Douglass/McMillen/McHarg/Shannon/Reid) mostly came from Ireland. But if we take those generations back to early 1700s, and especially in 1600s, rumor is that Erma’s maternal ancestors were almost exclusively in Scotland.
Unfortunately i have been able to find very little reliable Family History data for our ancestors born in Ireland and Scotland. Right now i rely mostly on dna, and hoping to eventually find some dna “cousins” in Ireland and Scotland who can help with reliable local sources.
