Was VERY surprised in not having any Hampshire or Dorset in the results. Don’t really know why, something to look into.

Not discovered any ancestors from Cumbria, Wales & Scotland so far.

Central England, South Central England & South East England is a mix from both my parents

Guessing Cornwall is one of my paternal 3rd Great Grandmother’s (Charlotte Moyes/Moise) line

Guessing  Tuscany is my paternal Grandmother’s  father’s (Joseph Peter Tognoli) line

That’s all I have for now, so till next time, stay tuned for some more Ancestry Adventures!
