    I’m sorry but that’s not enough information. Is there any French in her Flemish or German or Danish or English or Norwegian ... Until you start taking a detailed look at the ancestry of her Grandparents, Great Grandparents & Great Great Grandparents, etc, you’re not going to really know.
    Known Paper Trail: 45.3% English, 29.7% Scottish, 12.5% Irish, 6.25% German & 6.25% Italian. Or: 87.5% British Isles, 6.25% German & 6.25% Italian.
    LivingDNA: 88.1% British Isles (59.7% English, 27% Scottish & 1.3% Irish), 5.9% Europe South (Aegian 3.4%, Tuscany 1.3%, Sardinia 1.1%), 4.4% Europe NW (Scandinavia) & 1.6% Europe East, (Mordovia).

    the ethnicity companies based in and targeted for the U.S.A. seem to have a heavy bias for and generally over estimate North and Northwest European ancestry.
