DNA Results for Three Siblings

All I can say is that I wish I knew what our parents results would be!

Here is a post by The Legal Genealogist describing the results for four of her grandparents twelve children who were full blood siblings. Her first chart shows the amount of DNA each sibling has in common with the other and then later in the article she talks about how many DNA matches each sibling had with possible cousins and how many they had in common. With a total of 1,681 matches for all four by the end of February, there were only 159 that all four had in common.

Here is a great example from the Ancestry Blog on DNA inheritance that uses children's letter blocks.
When you see the results below REMEMBER my previous post that the most redheads are found in Scotland! (Well, 13% for Scotland with 10% in Ireland.)

What is it with the switched Europe West and Great Britain for Terry and then Lisa and me?
