I was born in the Nelson Hospital that was, in Wimbledon Chase ☺
Haahahah I remember when the nudist beach first opened there a couple of lads where I worked went, expecting to goggle at nude nubile beauties. They were most disappointed to find it was only a tiny few out of shape aged wrinklies there. I doubt you are old enough to remember that. It was a chuckle
Geographically, we are in Europe. Before it was flooded, Doggerland would have connected us to Germany, but I expect you know that already ☺
Lol, and they are lumped with us, whether they like it or not hahah
I agree we are indeed European - and none of us know what we will be in any future lives so no point being 'ist' about who and what others are, is there? Lol.
I hope we leave the political EU superstate, though ☺
Geographically, we are in N Europe and are therefore European.
There is nowhere to tick France, Germany, Italy, Poland or anywhere else but none of them complaining. It is merely a geographic fun survey, not a politcal bashing party enjoy it for what it is
Hello, I am from Malang, East Java, Indonesia (Former Dutch-Indie).
DNA tests give us a few shocks. I have 2% Middle Eastern and am also related to Oetzi the Iceman. My ancient heritage is mostly Viking. It goes to show that we can't say much about our 'enemies'.
Yep, because even if we know who we were before we don't know who we will be if we have to return here again. Lol.
Hoping we have some kind of choice in location, If so US, or Canada or maybe UK again
I've been in England in all but one of my handful of remembered pl's. The one where I wasn't was in a quite primitive tribe of golden skinned people who had almost died out. There was only maybe two or three dozen of us left, and I can't remember any children or whole families left. Maybe they had all gone elsewhere to try and find a way to sustain themselves.
I think you are south east england as well yeah?
Yes. Lovely part of the country even though much of this area isn't rich, and we are a bit hard up now.
Not far to sea and to countryside and well away from outer SW London where we used to live and where I was raised. It had been pleasant there but changed for the worse.
The msm make fun of what was suburbia but the relatively quiet and trouble free suburbs, with its sense of community, was a great place to grow up in the 60's/70's.
Also did a test some years ago. I am in the high 80's Scandinavian, 10% finnish and slightly below 2% baltic. Which is pretty much standard results for anyone from Northeastern Sweden, judging by several other results from people I know. Don't trust 23andme, though. They tamper with results (of white people only) for the sake of political activism, and have admitted as much. I took mine at myheritage and I know people who have gotten pretty different results when they checked some other site.
As a reply to the thread in general, I come from rural northern Sweden, near the arctic circle.
I currently live in the Midlands (UK) but have lived previously for some years in Spain nr Madrid and Tomelloso which is a small town in Castilla La Mancha (Don Quijote land).
I have read quite a few poor comments on 23&me. I have never done a dna test as it could be misused for surveillance of demographics and my children share part of my dna. Also, all my family and my husbands have known their heritage anyway. In the end, we go back to Sumaria, the cradle of civilisation, imo.
I was born in London of Italian parents in a Geogian/Victorian life, and was golden skinned in an almost died out simple tribe in an earlier life. The few other pl's I have remembered seem to have been in Derbyshire, London and somewhere else in England.
This life I was born just on the edge of Surrey prior to it being swallowed by The Blob (as per the vintage film), by which I mean London. Seems I love my deep ancestral homeland to keep returning here, but it is so changed even in my current life that I don't want to return here, or anywhere, again. The more media the more we realise what this world is. There seems to be nowhere for common people to have a pleasant enough, reasonably crime, war and poverty free place to go to anymore. At one time, people could 'flee to the hills' and with a bit of hunting, growing and gathering food etc still be left to live out their lives in relative peace.
Town or rural? Parts of the Midlands are very beautiful indeed. The countryside of S Derbyshire took my breath away when we went there a few times.
Unfortunately I’m near the urban centre for work and family. Yes it is a land of contrasts. Rural Shropshire is very beautiful and not too far but unfortunately too expensive to live and commute for us currently. Would like to move somewhere more rural in the future, not sure where — maybe we will move back to Spain (northern Spain is very beautiful).
I live in the south of france
Ooh I would love to have lived there ☺
