I Thought So

My father was a big student of genealogy, and I know my ancestry back 14 generations. Most of it traces back to Scotland, but there is always a mix. Now we have some science that confirms what I always thought:

But geneticists who have tested DNA throughout the British Isles are edging
toward a different conclusion. Many are struck by the overall genetic
similarities, leading some to claim that both Britain and Ireland have been
inhabited for thousands of years by a single people that have remained in the
majority, with only minor additions from later invaders like Celts, Romans,
Angles , Saxons, Vikings and Normans.
