    So nice to see you post again. When I opened the thread I said OMG. So happy.

    You even got a bit of Ireland.

    I've done the Living DNA test and Ireland was 47% and my next highest result was Northwest Scotland. My daughter only got 11% Ireland in this test because of the lack of Irish samples. They are getting a lot of Irish, German and Swedish samples and plan on getting a lot more worldwide but will concentrate on Europe first.

    The Morrigan (also Mórrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses Ériu, Banba and Fódla.

    You self-describe as Cajun French but have no ancestry showing in France at all. Do you find that accurate?

    And are you aware of any southern Italian or Greek ancestry?

    My great- grandmother, Marie Elodie Pecot, was the Cajun. From what I've studied, bits and pieces of DNA drop off ( although I would think that 1/8 is a pretty big chunk to fall) from generation to generation. If there is any kind of ethnic Greek or Hellenic Italian blood in me, it hasn't been preserved culturally.

    Ive been thinking of doing Living DNA and this was cool that I could browse your results and see how it displays them when you get it. Thanks!

    I do have a bit of Ireland, indeed! I found that somewhat ironic, as I also was a bit puzzled by the lack of French readings ( other users on FB have shared their results and France figured quite prominently in some) and that my Southeast England was 35.7%, to drop drastically to my 8.6% Ireland ( were my French and even smaller German percentages absorbed by SE England?). I'm glad that they are getting more samples from continental Europe and I will be interested in seeing how my Ireland regions would get subdivided. Having ancestors from Appalachia, I always included Scots- Irish in my self- identification and yet I have no Southern Scotland/ Northern Ireland in my reading. I do have that huge chunk of Ireland and 2.4% Northwestern Scotland, 2% Orkney ( islands off Scotland's Northern Coast) and 1.6% Aberdeenshire. I pay more attention to the Standard because that includes the admittedly unknown percentage ( around 11% in my case). It seems that my Scots- Irish might be simply a mingling of Gaelic Irish with Highland Scots ( which itself might be considered extraordinary) rather than Scottish Lowlanders migrating to Ulster. How that can be with my thoroughly Protestant Appalachian family, I don't know. I'm sure there are several explanations that could offer themselves.

    I've thought about using LivingDNA. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey, Dick. Yeah, I still don't understand why they'd do that.

    Maybe the DNA from my great- grandmother dropped off, or maybe there's something else I don't know anything about. If I did have Southern Italian or Greek ancestry, it might be on my father's side, where there are a lot of unanswered questions and dead ends, or if my great- grandmother wasn't French Cajun but ethnically Greek or Southern Italian, which could be a possibility ( if one of her grandparents had a dalliance with a Greek or Southern Italian- of which there were communities in Southern Louisiana- my estimate even in the Cautious mode is 4.7%, which isn't really that much, I guess I could have inherited some of that), but I simply don't know.
