new every morning...

Lamentations 3:22 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Notified to look at new DNA findings. Rounding off, I am half Scandanavian and half Irish (more defined and to the original source than half German, half British). They seem to be getting more on target-new research. This goes back before absolute nations I think. Everything is so mixed because of ancient travel and wars and settling. So I guess we are all God's children. You know the Scandinavians conquered and settled in Ireland, England, France, Germany, Russia and many other places, etc. The Scandinavians discovered America 500 years before Columbus. The company (Ancestry DNA) listed my daughter as daughter or mother-right. But they listed my 2nd cousin (or suspected half sister) as my possible 5th-6th cousin. I should call her. Those women from Applachia had so many secrets that I do not know and wonder. A girl was on there as a 2nd-3rd cousin and I think I spent the day with her at age 13, so much fun. She knows her history and I heard some of her family names. I should write her. I know mostly nothing. I think I was switched and taken away at birth. I am a know nothing.

Yes, I agree with that John. Looking at my closer DNA relatives listed, I know there is relation because they list names of people and small location area where some of if not all of my people came from. But I have not contacted them because I do not know my true biological names. Then they had relatives born in Sweeden, Denmark, and Norway, also the British Isles. As far as I know or thought my 5-great grandfather, Richard Warren, came over on the Mayflower and was from S. England (forgot town). I think I gave up a long time ago. I was also contacted by Irish people about relations but I never answered because I do not know names (all my so called relatives died before they gave me any specifics-secrets). I know the medical info is very accurate for me because I am older and know this - even the Neanderthal part. Like that article said, going way, way, way, way, way back would be a guess about any specific relations if not impossible and we all inherit different DNA. I have less than half inheritance of Neanderthal traits. One is I am an average 1 inch shorter than average (which equals average anyway). The other is inheriting the good quality of blood clotting back then which could be bad today (stroke, etc.). But the good thing is I inherited less and I am a little slow to clot. (I think that an older lady was given money in Dexter City, Ohio, by my legal mother not to tell me anything but they all know. Learned this from a trip back there a few years ago).

Get this. Sonya was supposed to be my 2nd cousin but DNA said 4th-5th cousin. Marilynn, Sonya's generation older sister who would be my 2nd cousin also, was listed as my 3rd-4th cousin. DNA got it right about a mother-daughter relation with my daughter. Her father is from Wisconsin where Paul Ryan comes from, Janesville. The Russian people several years ago who worked and helped the Applachian Hillbillies in West Virginia and Kentucky hated them according to people in
Alaska who told me. The Russians said the people were very backwards, ignorant, uneducatedd, did not believe in medicine and inbred and lived in poverty and did not work. The U.S. Government has been trying to move those people out of there up to the big cities for a few generations. The Kennedys were shocked when they went there. And be careful about driving on their property or you could get shot. They do not like outsiders meddling. Texas people are up in my area getting oil out of the ground for the next 40 years and the place is getting wrecked and factories are planned and buildings are falling down. DuPont poisoned the Ohio River with C-8. Coal mining is resuming in W. Va. Kentucky built super unused Highways. (The people just walk up out of the hills and hollers and line up and look at the Danial Boone highway for something to do in the evening). Still, the people will not leave unless they go up to the cities, rob, and go home. (My blood that the doctors commented on is bright red which is different from darker red, rust from inbreeding). I was born in the big city. I shore ain't a-fixin to have no fits with them folks in the hollars. A true song from my ancestors area on utube is-Banks of the Ohio River.
