I have done DNA testing with Ancestry.com and FamilyTreeDNA. These show I am more Irish than anything. That’s not a surprise. I know that these estimates could change as the number of people tested grows. I have a bombed ancestral church, a church that neglected to keep records for a number of years, and some other quirks, so I appreciate these estimates. My research to this point shows that I am truly a mixture of backgrounds. Of my 16 great great grandparents, only 7 came to the U.S., 2 to Lower Canada, and 1 was born in French Canada and may have come to the U.S. Of course, the research on all of them is ongoing. I want to know more about each individual.

These eight ancestors were born in Ireland, Ireland, Ireland, Ireland, Ireland, Ireland, French Canada (definitely French), and the last great great grandmother is 1/2 English and the other half may be German.
