Interesting. According to this, I'm more English than the average English person! And my most recent English ancestor left in 1820 :)

AncestryDNA puts my ethnic origin at:
Great Britain - 57%
Europe West - 19%
Ireland - 18%
Scandinavia - 5%
Europe East - 1%

FTDNA has me at 68% British Isles, 27% Scandinavia, 5% Eastern Europe.
