    I notice that people of European descendant tend to be quite unsure where their ancestry originated because Europe historically were quite fragmented into many smaller states and kingdom as compared to the East such as China, India and Japan. It can also be due to other factors such as geographical isolation that can help to limit martial aggression from other places for example, China was isolated by the Gobi Desert, India by the Himalaya and Japan by being an Island nation.

    Europeans even before setting out to colonize other part of the world befor 1600s, they already do have communication and contact with other cultures through trade, diplomacy or military. This can range from when Rome was a superpower in the West, during Alexander conquest in Persia and the Indus Kush, Spaniard contact with Moors and Mongol’s military campaign in Eastern Europe and Turkey.

      You are correct with your observations. I have provided useful guides for anyone with European heritage. These can be found within the Family History Books and Download section of the site. In future I will be also adding tools for anyone with Asian descent who is tracing their family history.

      Thank you for dropping by and leaving a thoughtful and interesting comment.
