This post Eric ponders his genealogy as seen in his DNA profile,




English, Irish and Welsh

With a dram or two of Scotts

Make up my DNA


But who are all these others?

Scandinavian I can see

What with the Viking raids and such


Grandma was of French decent

So, those folks

were to be expected


But German –maybe

My genealogy ties to Charlemagne

are real after all


Spain and Italy I knew

But through marriage

So no DNA there

And yet they are hiding in

My genes


Dig deeply and more surprises appear

North African – just a quick swim across the Med

To Spain and Italy



Eastern European Ashkenazic Jew

And West African – who knew


I am a citizen of the world

Hiding in my genes

And the poster child for America
