    Well, my paternal line is G2a and they were good farmers, coming from Yorkshire c1686, and moving through west Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and on into Iowa. My father was the last farm boy....

    This, I suppose, is my problem making sense of autosomal DNA results. Pieces of my family have been in America since the 17th century, and since then they've been mixing with other immigrants from...

    If who or what is causing you stress is at work (bosses, inane co-workers), then that answer is problematic. I always planned my day around a noon work-out. That split up my day, but more importantly...

    Under G2a-Z726 I'm predicted to be Z36217, an as-of-yet unconfirmed sister clade of 4803 and 16775.

    I'm fairly lucky because a number of the members of my family in the US and a long-lost cousin...

    My paternal line is G2a-Z726, but my male ancestors are, almost certainly, mainly of other Y-DNA types. In fact, when I look at MyTrueAncestry for the Y-DNA distribution of all male samples that...

    Well, my maternal line is K1a4a1h and I have a good paper trail to Holstein, in northern Germany circa 1650 and there is good historical evidence they were in northern Germany in the 14th century....

    You're a bit like my wife then. She wants "the book," to have the feel of it in her hands as she leaves (leafs?) through the pages. I'm cool with either.

    I suppose I like that both Jane Austen and...

    I should have mentioned Dick Francis. I've never found a book of his that failed to please (and there's so many to pick from!).

    I could never get into poetry, but looking at my Kindle I can see that I frequently reread Pride & Prejudice, Wouk's Winds of War (I guess an American fits as a European author), Lord of the Rings...

    People not training/restraining their dogs. Maybe it's a friendly dog (but only to you?), but that doesn't mean I want it jumping on me. Don't people train their dogs to heel, sit, lay-down anymore?

    Vogelwaarde Hulst, Zeeland, Nederland.

    This makes sense. My ancestry is north/west German, English and Dutch.

    Spent a few days in San Antonio, near Austin. Loved the river walk, but like Angela says, the summer is a killer and I lived most of my youth in Phoenix so I know heat (or course I wouldn't go back...

    I live in San Diego, California, which is pretty fine, so you'd need an atom bomb to pry me out of here. If, however, I had to pick a spot outside the U.S., it would be Switzerland. A beautiful...

    For difference, here are my results (British Isles and Western Germany) and my wife's (Ireland and England). I've colored them for ease of viewing.

    The problem with guilt is that it is imposed so unevenly. The Germans should feel guilty about Nazism, but the Chinese get a pass for Maoism? The English should feel guilty about the slave trade, but...

    This is not historical research or analysis. It's more like a 12-year old's time travel imagining . . . if you could go back in time, what would you change? Crush a butterfly and the Nazis win the...

    But, do you like having grey hair? I don't think I was terribly early transitiioning into grey maturity, I was middle-thirties, but I never regretted it. I like the look and, while I'm no Sean...

    1991 was the beginning of a boom in the American economy and 2010, almost a decade ago, was the beginning of a slow recovery from one of the worst recessions the country had ever had. What would you...

    Hayley,
    I too am an American of mixed ancestry, but that's par for the course in this country. Some of the family came over as early as the 1600s, others in the middle 19th century. What I can prove...

    As most people will do, I thought I had an above average intelligence. Then I got assigned to the Pentagon and was chagrined to see how truly smart people can be. The elite intellects did rise to the...

    Agree with the danger. It’s hard to work together when we’re ‘told’ other groups are so different that we don’t share the same “truth.”
