My family are a bunch of mutts.

We have a some Irish in us, a little French, some German from the early 1800s, and a LOT of Cherokee.

The new DNA trace is very interesting. Just knowing where your family departed from does not always tell the story. I plan on doing the DNA trace it is getting more affordable. A friend of mine who has a very German name had the DNA trace done. Turns out the ancestors came from an Island off the coast of Scotland.
