well there is something similar
if you do the fanchart view - there is an option for color coding on country of birth
as an example:
(and on that page make sure "birth country" is selected
Thank you, that was very helpful on my father's side. I know that on my mothers side through DNA that there is Irish also, but I guess 7 generations back is not far enough. Thank you for your help. 😀
most ethnic DNA analysis would really only show like up to 5 or 6 generations. at 7 generations its on average less than 1% of your DNA from such an ancestor. and thus on many Ethnic tests - there is a fair chance that the DNA test wouldnt evene detect such small amounts.
but yeh - I think I seee what you mean
the Irish Immirgants could have been farther back than 7 generations.
Yes that is true - and thus would not show on the fanchart.
but you could pick a few other more distant ancestors and do the fanchart for them and see what you find.
My DNA shows 4% Ireland and my mother's 5%. My father has passed away so I don't have his DNA. I did try on my Mother's side going to her mother, which we were always told she had Irish Ancestry but nothing comes up. Her father was Cajun French and Spanish. I will just have to keep looking...
Thanks so much for your input. I really appreciate it.
That should say my Mother's Father was Cajun French with some relatives from Mexico and Spain.
Click on Family Tree - Find and then fill in the fields. Do you know his name? About when he was born? Marriage? Death? Spouse? Father? Mother? All this information helps narrow down the results.
The Esposito name was given to almost all foundlings in the Naples area for about 100 years. I see the same names over and over and sometimes they have parents with the same names or wives with the same names and they are born in the same town around the same time. But I've never seen two individuals in the same town born around the same time whose mothers and wives have the same name, so I add them to my search and find the person I'm looking for.
