Wow! There were a lot of surprises from my genealogical research over the past month. As mentioned in a previous post, my DNA results indicate more of a 'Continental Europe' influence than a 'British Isles' one. This was initially confusing since every surname I've ever been aware of was British in nature. The problem was that I hadn't yet gone back far enough in my research. I have now researched six generations and found the following surnames in my ancestry:
Krummholz (Anglicized to Crum)
Auxier (actually, Alsatian so could also be considered German)
Van Vliet (Van Fleet)
As you can see, most of this influence comes from my father's lineage rather than my mother's. This makes sense in a way because my largest concentration is 32% Europe West whereas, my mother's is 52% British. I wish I could get my father's results to confirm this but he has an aversion to such tests!
