England

My Ancestry.com DNA results indicate that my main genetic community is in Southern England. This is not surprising as my family tree shows many connections from Southern England, as seen in the table below.

My English ancestors had arrived in Australia between 1788 and about 1860, though most were here by 1841, other than Robinson-Stern and Midson-Mears families. DNA Ethnicity 2019.02.08
