  1. So why do mine come back as 80% central Lichtenstein? (Not much of an exaggeration). Interesting.

    1. Does Topsy have a lot of German ancestry? If she is, and that is combined with the minor amount of German/Swiss from Annie Webb Slater's ancestry, it might have tilted the scale in that direction. I'd be interested in what your sibling's DNA results would be :-)
