I had my DNA done. Boringly western european. Over 85% English. Now getting over not being the least bit Spanish. Found two second cousins I didn't know.

Been tracing my family tree too. Goes way back. When most Americans were farmers most of my relatives were too. Seems some were Puritans and I think some were Quakers too. None were superstars at anything good or bad.

As a group, they tended to live a long time. But the farther back you go, it seems, the longer they lived, so I guess I will stick to my current retirement plan which has me checking out at 95.
