Ancestry has done another update, so you might want to check your profile.

They are hedging their bets with the ethnicity - for instance they say my Scottish ancestry is 43%. When you click on it however, it says it may actually range from 18 -43%.

Hessian remains unearthed at Revolutionary War battle site:

Quote
The remains have been turned over to forensic anthropologists at the New Jersey State Police forensic unit to extract DNA from the bones and teeth to identify their origin. Additional studies are being conducted to examine life history, health and disease.

The scientists hope they can identify the remains and find their descendants.

“We’re hoping that eventually, perhaps, we can find some of these individuals,” Rowan University public historian Jennifer Janofsky said in a statement. “If we can extract their stories, and if we can tell their stories, it lets us put a name to a face. And that, to me, is a very powerful moment in public history.”

What fun for family members who have done the DNA analysis, to be able to link up to one of these soldiers.

Another of those Hessian soldiers deserted, married a German girl in Pennsylvania, and became my 5th great grandfather.
