My husband's AncestryDNA results finally finished. I had tried to guess beforehand what his predicted ethnicity estimate would be, and I was pleased to see it was very close. He is mostly German and Polish, and the results overwhelmingly reflected that. Throw in some small amounts of Great Britain, Ireland, Finland/Russia, and Scandinavia (which I expected some amount of each), and I was very pleased with my accuracy.
My husband's family has a story that one of his female ancestors was Cherokee. Well, he has some trace Native American, especially in his GEDmatch ethnicity runs, somewhere between what my dad and I have. So maybe it isn't just a family legend.
He also has some trace Nigeria. I didn't see that coming. Maybe he has a story like Johnny Depp's African ancestor. Looks like I have some research to do on his tree!
