DNA Test Results

Hi family and friends!

I’ve been wrapped up in family life so I haven’t posted as much as I wished I could. Lately I have been very wrapped up in doing genealogical research, specifically I have been doing research on Ancestry.com which has yielded some very interesting finds. The other thing that I have done is I sent away for a DNA test! This tells me my ethnic makeup, which is quite fascinating. It also connects me with any blood relatives who have also taken the test. It turned up a bunch of 4th cousins, so I sent them some messages and I am hopeful that someone will reply. This is a possible way of filling in gaps of information that are missing from the family tree. So, let me share the results of my genetic makeup with you.

What I find surprising is that I am 19% Italian/Greek and 12% Irish – because none of these ethnicities show up in my known family tree. I know I had to be partly Native American on my dad’s side, but I didn’t realize that I am almost 25% Native American. I think that means that at least one of my grandparents on my dad’s side was close to full blooded native. I really wish my sister Marcela were still around to share this with. She was always fascinated by this stuff and I think she would have found this very interesting indeed!

In other news, one of the girls’ parakeets (named Prince Charming) accidentally got out of his cage and flew away never to be seen again. The girls cried for an hour but by the next day they had already forgotten all about him. Apart from that trauma, they are all doing well. Little PJ is now 11 months old, and one of the cutest things that he does is to hum himself to sleep. You would never believe it unless you heard him, but he can also match pitch! When I sing him his bedtime lullabye he rests his head on my shoulder and hums along – on pitch! He can’t follow the full melody but he picks the dominant note and hums just that pitch. Sometimes he chooses another pitch within the chord. Now that truly amazes me.

That’s all for now, the weather here in Las Vegas is getting warm and really beautiful. Between the changes of the seasons we have very mild and lovely weather with a brilliant blue sky. I hope all of you are doing well, wherever you are!

Hola Familia y Amigos!

Estuve bien ocupada ultimamente con la familia asi que no he escrito tan seguido como quisiera. Ultimamente estuve muy interesada en hacer investigaciones de genealogia. Estuve buscando informacion en Ancestry.com, y ahi encontre unas cosas muy interesantes. La otra cosa que hice fue mandar a probar mi DNA! Esto me ayuda descubrir cual es mi ethnicidad, y es fascinante! Tambien me deja conectar con parientes que tambien tomaron la prueba de DNA. Esto ya me mostro un monton de primos en cuarto grado (asi se dice?) asi que les mande un mensaje con la esperanza de que alguno me responde. Esto puede ayudarme a descubrir informacion que todavia me falta en el arbol. Bueno, comparto la informacion a cerca de mis resultados y etnicidad.

Lo que me sorprende es que soy 19% Italiana/Griega and 12% Irlandeza – porque ningunas de esas ethnicidades estan en mi arbol, que yo sepa. Ya sabia que tenia que tener sangre indigena (Native American) por lado de mi papa, pero no me di cuenta que soy casi 25%indigena. Creo que eso quiere decir que por lo menos unos de mis abuelos por lado de mi papa era casi completamente indigeno. Realmente quiera poder haber compartido toda esta informacion con mi hermana Marcela, por que a ella siempre le fascinaba este tipo de cosa.

En otras noticias, uno de los periquitos de las chicas se salio de la jaula y se volo. Las chicas lloraron por una hora, pero ya para el proximo dia se habian olvidado por completo de el. Aparte de esta trauma, estan bien. El pequeno P.J. ( asi le decimos, por Phillip Junior – es decir, Felipe el Menor) ya tiene 11 meses y una de las cosas tan dulces que hace es que canta al dormirse.  No lo podes creer si no lo vez, pero tambien el puede cantar el tono correcto! Cuando le canto la cancion para dormirse pone la cabezita en mi hombro y canta conmigo – con el tono correcto! No puede cantar cada nota, pero selecciona la nota dominante y canta esa nota. O si no, escoge una nota dentro de esa cuerda (chord?). Ahora eso realmente me sorprenda.

Bueno, es todo por ahora. La temporada aqui en Las Vegas esta calentita y realmente hermosa.  Entre los cambios de las estaciones siempre tenemos tiempo muy lindo con un cielo azul brillante. Espero que esten todos bien, donde sea que esten!
