Felicita took the 23andme DNA test and the results were surprising!
I’m so excited!!! I think I say those three words a total of four times throughout this video and for that, I’m not sorry. Because I’M SO EXCITED! I honestly didn’t think there would be any surprises because both sides of my family have all been really close with each of my parents throughout my childhood. So I thought we knew everything there was to know.
The surprising results were that Felicita came up French and German! Joe’s side is Italian and my side is a mix of Eastern European, Irish and mix. Mix denotes a nationality that is not 100%. You will notice that I didn’t mention French and German. So where does it come from? After a week long of research on ancestry.com, building my family tree, I figured out where it would have come from if it’s really true.
But first… I accidentally said, “father” when I meant to say “grandfather” in reference to my mother’s grandfather. Oops!🤣
So my maternal grandmother, Maie, never knew her mother, Catherine (names changed for privacy). We were always told that Catherine died when my grandmother was around four-years-old. They said she was sick but I don’t think anyone remembers what she was sick from. Then Maie and her sister were raised by their father and step-mother. Maie’s father is a large mix of nationalities so we know the unexpected 100% French & German DNA does not descend from his line.
As for Maie’s mother’s side, her father was 100% Scottish and her mother was 50% Scottish and 50% mix. Doesn’t sound very French and German does it? 😊 However, there was someone in their life around the time Maie was born who is exactly 50% French and 50% German. This woman’s mother was 100% French and her father was 100% German. I could be totally wrong but every family tree and every mathematical breakdown points to this woman. 😮😁
This woman supposedly never had children but does have nieces and nephews from her brothers that are still around. Someone recently asked me what I would do if I find out it’s true. I think that if they’re in the DNA database, I would like to try and contact them just to simply tell them that their great-aunt DID in fact have a child and how happy and grateful we are that she did. ❤️
