How do you know your son's Scandinavian blood does not come via his Father? My sister had a test done so I think that would be the same as mine. In which case I have 3% Scandinavia in me.

I don't know that much about DNA testing, but I do know that the results are separated into the maternal haplogroup (X chromosome) and paternal haplogroup (Y chromosome). His (and my) maternal haplogroup is I-4, which is Scandinavian.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Oh, my sister's was not so detailed just said 100% European, 63% West Europe, 22% Ireland, 11% Great Britain, 3% Scandinavia and less than 1% Italy/Greece. She knew I thought it a waste of her money so we have never discussed it, although I have kept the result she emailed :-)

This year, I found out via my son's DNA test that I have Scandinavian blood, so I'm making an Icelandic recipe, Red Cabbage and Blueberries:

After making the red cabbage and blueberries, my chopping board looks a lot like some of our colorful sunrises lately!!

So brian, the reason I got my son to take the test was that he has an X chromosome and a Y chromosome, whereas I just have two XXs, so we were able to get more data that way. Most people's chromosomes are structured that way, but not all. There are various companies that do the testing and they provide different results. I just had basic testing done and I'm waiting to learn more about it before I buy more detailed tests. People have all different reasons for having these tests. In my case, I was interested in confirming my ancestry and learning more about my most ancient ancestors. Many people aren't interested in that, and some people think it's dangerous, because it means that outside companies have a lot of information about you. Some people have privacy concerns and others fear that they'll find out something they'd rather not know.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Actually, I've made this dish several times before for the holidays, even though I didn't know I was a Viking!

I've never heard of this one before!
