What does that mean?
She's probably not 100% sure about her lineage because it really means nothing in this country. My ethnicity really has little impact on any aspect of my life and I'm not even sure where where at least 50% of my ancestry is from.

I know for a fact that I'm 1/4 Irish and 1/16 Scottish, but when I say that I'm an extra 1/16 british, i mean that I'm not sure...could be welsh, could be english. I don't know the heritage of that last relative for sure...just that he was british...

Nobody can trace their ancestry back 3000 years! I'm assuming he meant 300 which in itself is quite a remarkable piece of geneology.

I'm pretty sure they can't. Proper written records don't go back that far...

Quite. I mean, that would mean going back a good half-millennium before the Celts first came to Britain! In other words, a culture with absolutely no reading or writing...

I've just tried to find out the "record" for geneological research in terms of timeline. Couldn't find anything but I very much doubt that anyone can go back to 1000 years BC.

Yes, but what if their early family somehow kept records? highly unlikely, but still entirely possible...

Howie, the Mormans are famous for their geneological record keeping. A former co-worker of mine (a morman) told me that many people have traced themselves back to the time of Christ, after that (he claims) they use biblical records to trace you back to Adam and Eve. At that time, he was in the process of tracing his geneological records....never found out if he got back to A&E.

The word 'reliability' springs to mind. How on earth can the Mormons be so sure, so far back?
