Where do I have my roots?
I have two dogs that was ordered by me to be ashamed about how they behaved earlier today. Orvar and Nova had a big fight in the kitchen over a small piece of liver I accidentally dropped on the floor and they both wanted. It didn’t last long because when I yell I can be heard through closed doors and windows in my neighbors cottage🙂🙂🙂 After a bit of yelling from me they now both are up sleeping in my bed next to each other🙂🙂 Orvar is sort of curled around her as if he is protecting her🙂
I don’t know if You remember but we have a story in the family that my Mormors mormor (that means grandmothers grandmother on my mother’s side, if it was on my father’s side it would be farmor) Most probably wasn’t swedish, in fact my mormor said she was a gypsy, something most people in the family keeps quiet about. Well not me and my brother🙂🙂🙂 I have checked back as far as I could but some priests handwriting is so bad its hard to understand what they actually has written🙂🙂
So before I try again I’ve ordered a DNA test that will show from where my ancestors really originate. The thing is that they can see that in the DNA. They can follow the woman line via the mitochondrial DNA. That sort of stick with the women from the beginning of time and it varies from region to region. They can also trace from where the men has come from via the Y chromosome and since my father’s origin is rather clouded I thought that would be interesting as well.
My father’s father is unknown to all of us, my farmor refused to tell us who he was. Back in 1936 it was a huge scandal to become pregnant if unmarried. She had worked as a maid on a big farm and came home with my father. The thing is that she had another son again just a year after that, still unmarried but he stayed with his father not far from where I live. We all just hope that my farmor was (for the morals of that time) a promiscuous slut that liked a bit of fun in the hay, the alternative is that she was raped and that would be terrible.
So now I’m waiting for a test tube to arrive via the mail so I can spit in it and send it back. After that I’ll have to wait for up to eight weeks before I get an answer. Since some of my relatives unfortunately are rather much on the racists side I truly and honestly hope we derives from something they just can’t take🙂🙂🙂 The worst would be if we only have swedish or Scandinavian ancestors🙂 I’ll tell You from where my roots come as soon as I get an answer but it will take some time.
