We have done some DNA testing and the results are below

    72% Western European - Juers (German) and Nilsson (French emigrates to Sweden 

            in roughly 1810)

    23% Swedish (Nilsson)

     3% Russian (?)

     1% English (?)

William “Chip” Eckles

My Dad was half German, a quarter English and a quarter Scotts-Irish, so compared to my Mom, I am more English and less Swedish as you would expect.  The Norwegian is a surprise.

Mary Kate Eckles

Colleen is 3/4 English and 1/4 Irish, so compared to me, Mary Kate is much more Irish/Scottish/English and less Swedish as you would expect.
