Ancestry.com Gave Me Gazelle’s Portuguese
As it turns out, I'm actually more Portuguese than Gazelle.
Thanks to an update to Ancestry.com, Gazelle found out the hard way that he's not as Portuguese as he thought.
Well, similarly, I received an email informing me that Ancestry.com had updated their results. Unlike Gazelle, until I got my original DNA results from Ancestry earlier this year, I didn't know what nationality I was. I was adopted, so it was a bit of a mystery to most of us. We had some guesses here and there, but nothing nailed down.
When I got my original results, they just told me I was 21 percent from the Iberian Peninsula. Well, the new update refined that, and as it turns out, I'm 15 percent Portuguese.
Unlike Gazelle, I have not lived a very Portuguese life. I grew up with an Irish mom and a Jamaican dad.
I guess I should have Gazelle start training me to be a true Portuguese man, but I don't know, since he's hardly one now.
