Hey guys. It’s Shaun. Welcome back to my channel. Today, I’m going to be going over my ancestry DNA results. This is something I’ve been wanting to do since the second it came out and I’ve finally done it.

So basically what this test is, you go to ancestry.com, and you order a kit that’s about a hundred dollars (you don’t need to pay subscription or anything).

And they send a tube to your house. It’s about this big, and you need to spit inside of it. And you mail it to their company in Utah. And in about six to eight weeks, they’ll email you a 98% accurate breakdown of your ethnicity.

So before I give you my results, comment below what you think my ethnicity is: do you think I’m 100% European? Do you think there’s a little mix inside of me?

I don’t know. Let me know.

Anyway, I’m going to be completely honest: I was actually completely shocked with my results, so I’m going to read them to you.

Hold on a second.

So for Asia, I got one percent, less than 1% Asia South, primarily located in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

And I read this online, and lots of people that come from Czech Republic have Gypsy blood in them, and Gypsies originally come from India, and that region, so I’m guessing it’s probably some Gypsy blood in me.

And this was the biggest shocker.

I am 65% European, which is expected — I mean I’m kind of White, but my largest region in Europe was 25% Italy-Greece, and I had absolutely no idea that I had Italy or Greek inside of me.

But then I began to research things online, and I discovered that during the Byzantine Empire, millions of Greeks moved to the Armenian Highlands, so I’m guessing that lots of Armenians come from Greek descent and don’t actually know about it.

So I was really happy to get this result. I don’t think there’s any Italian in me, but Greek for sure makes sense. I did not know I was a quarter Greek — that was a complete shocker to me.

The next is 14% Europe East. Europe East is primarily located in Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Russia, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia.


And this one is a shocker: I got 9% Irish. I have never known that I had Irish blood inside of me. It is primarily located in Ireland, Wales and Scotland. So that’s nine percent.

And my next one is Europe West, 6%, primarily located in Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein. This is probably German: lots of White people have at least a little bit of German inside of them.

And then I am 5% Great Britain, which is kind of funny because I have a British last name. 3% European Jewish, that’s cool, primarily located in Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary and Israel.

And then I’m 3% Scandinavian, primarily located in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. And this would make sense because my dad’s side has really blonde hair and blue eyes.

And my last region is West Asia. I am 26% from the Caucasus. The Caucasus is primarily located in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey.

And I’m 8% Middle East, primarily located in Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and Israel.

And this makes sense because my grandfather’s family has lived in Syria for more than 500 years, so I’m sure they mixed a little bit with Syrians.

So yep, that is my genetic breakdown. My three largest ones are 26% Caucasus, my Armenia, 25% Italy Greece, and 14% Europe East, Czech.

So yeah, at the end of the day, I’m still me; I’m still Shaun, but it’s honestly so cool to know what my ethnicity breakdown is and I totally recommend that you guys do it. Thanks for watching. Bye.
