As the only actual Brit in our family, Scott is the least genetically British of the lot at 39%.  Meemaw tops out at 80% genetically British with a smattering of German and Scandi as well.  Mom and I both have Native American bits, and I am the only one with random Iberian (who knew?).  Getting tested has been a really fun experience, particularly then uploading the data to Promethease (I carry the blue eye and light hair gene, but have neither) & DNA.land (waaaaay off base, btw).

Thanks Delta Sky Club!
