Great new thing on ancestry DNA. They have now split your DNA showing which belongs to Parent 1 & 2.
Doesn't tell you which is which but I can work mine out. Should make things easier - But where did Mum get all that Swedish/Danish DNA from?

Could be :-D

Even more confused now as 6 months ago Ancestry only had me at 3% Swedish/Danish.

Paren 1 and parent 2 will be different for all of us - its up to each one of us to work out who that might be x

Of course.

With myself and the OH the father seems to be Parent 1.
