    I thought it was an interesting test because my family lore included an American Indian Great Grandfather but that didn't show up in any of my close family's tests.
    Yeah--my family lore had the same one, I think. )I'm sure my sibling was greatly disappointed to find they weren't part of an oppressed minority. ) When I was doing genealogy, I was excited to come across a relative named Greybill (Wow--there's our Native American!) until I found the surname was a variation of Krebiehl, an old German name that has about a million variants. I have approximately the same ethnic mix as our Dear Leader, but I have ancestors in common with the Bush family.

    As it happens, we found out that one of my wife's ancestors was U.S. Grant. It's a rather convoluted trail but still.

    It's fun to discover famous--or infamous--ancestors in the family. Luther Burbank was a cousin, many times removed, which almost made up for our Indian--free pedigree in my sibling's eyes.
