Collaboration of the Realms

I spit into a test tube then sent it through the mail to a laboratory somewhere. When returned, the analysis would supposedly tell me about my ancestry. I don’t profess to know a lot about science nor do I wish to. I’m a words person. I find more fun in bewilderment about how the physical world works.
But I’d been having hunches that my family’s recollections of our history had gone awry. I was told English and German were the dominant influences.
