  1. DNA Testing and Genetic Ancestry

    For those in the South East Region ITV Meridian are showing a feature on ancestral DNA testing. The second part of this special will be broadcast tonight, in which Fred Dinenage and Sangeeta Bhabra will have their DNA tested to reveal their genetic roots. Last night the reporter Derek Johnson discussed how many in Kent had Scandinavian roots. His own DNA revealed 10% unknown, 38% Great British, 33% West European [Anglo Saxon], 6% Irish [Celtic] 2% non European [Caucasus] and 11% Scandinavian. Whilst DNA testing is no substitute for family history research it gives a different insight into a persons roots.
