    Hi my Irish friends and family.....

    do you get EWTN in Ireland? Just wondering....by the way....I had my DNA sample done and found I am 99.1 percent Northern European and 96% Celtic....so you really are my family :)

    Dia dhuit, fellow celt. we do get it here, its on one of the cable channels the only good cable channel at that, last time I checked anyway, which was over a year ago. I was at a lecture last year on some Celtic tribes, some of them came into Ireland over 25oo years ago, some amazing history. They used chariots to travel and some had very royal linage particularly those of the red branch nights and Kings of Ulster. Anyway, its nice to hear you are happy about your results.

    My brother just got his done......I am sure mine would be very similar......no Celtic here, but it did say 18% British/Irish. Surprisingly, it said a small amount of Jewish ancestry.......and also that I am distantly related to St. Luke.

    I remember reading somewhere that Celtic DNA marking in the blood are the strongest of all, even stronger than say, Jewish or Negro.

    I remember being in Chicago one time and being touched and surprised by how many African Americans told me they were Irish.:)

    I used the 23 and me DNA sampling here in the US to test for a vit b deficiency. It is cheaper at 99.00 to get health info then it is to pay for a 500.00 test out of pocket. As a result I got all my DNA answers. Breast cancer gene, Alzheimer's gene and some metabolic and gluten genes....that's why I did it but I did get some ancestry info that was wonderful! It ties you to 3rd and 4th cousins if you want to contact them to figure your family tree. I have NOT....but it's interesting that most of them go back to Ireland in 2 generations

    One more thing....can anyone recommend a good Irish genealogy search engine? My grandmother's grandparents came over on the St Mark in the mid 1800's and I can't trace them in Ireland....I only have the census info of them in the NYC Irish tenements. I can't figure where they came from in Ireland and of course they have the most common of names....Anne Garvey and Patrick Mitchell....when I look up records there are about at least 5 or 6 of them in Ireland married that year before they left for NYC.....I would love to know where they came from. My grandmom said Mayo but that could have been her dad Robert Logan....
