Do I have British Isles ancestry?

I’m Puerto Rican (American) and most of my ancestry comes from Europe with the most being Spain & Italy but then I have 10 percent Great Britain/Ireland! Can you give me a theory or explanation on where that came from and does that mean I have Anglo o

Answers:

Puerto Rico is a racially and ethnically diverse Island. I cannot explain where you Great Britain/Ireland ancestry came from, most likely sailors, but 10% really isn't very much.

Aren't the Basques more related to Celts than other groups in Spain? (there's a group in Sardinia they're more closely related too as well). That would cover Spain, Italy, and Ireland. What was exact the haplotype? Find it and Google that.

> Can you give me a theory or explanation on where that came from

Sure. 200 years ago your 3rd great grandmother was dancing in a cantina on the beach. In walked the handsomest man she had ever seen, Lieutenant Nigel Peregrine of the Royal Navy. His ship, the HMS Periwinkle, was in port to rest and refit before heading back out to hunt for pirates. Tall, blonde, blue eyes, great uniform. She was enchanted. He thought her flashing brown eyes, olive skin and raven-back hair were exotic. He was enchanted too. They walked along the beach in the warm tropical night. Walking isn't all they did, because nine months later she gave birth to a half-English baby. Did he come back for her? Only research will tell.

PS - I took the Saki short story "The Open Door" as a lesson in life, not a mere amusement.

if you KNOW that you have this 10 %, follow up with the SOURCE that told you that you are 10 % involved.

Only way you will ever know is to research and prove from real records....... DNA tests are sold to entertain you...get it done again and you will get different 'results'.......... you also need to learn some geography, the British Isles is the two islands of Britain and Ireland ( plus over six thousand smaller isles) consisting of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish people...... so not just English and Anglo is a prefix indicating a relation to the Angles, England, the English people, or more commonly a shortened 'Anglophone', the English language which is spoken in 50% of countries worldwide as a countries first language... not a word used now or for centuries in the British Isle for ancient tribes of people originally from German tribes alive 1500 yrs ago...

It means that 10% of your DNA is shared with people in Great Britain. They may have ancestors who immigrated from Spain or to Puerto Rico or you may have common ancestors with them who migrated from elsewhere in Europe (from Germany, perhaps, or the Roman Empire). People aren't static; they moved around a lot in response to wars, poverty or opportunity.
