    CETIC!!!!!!!

    I Am Mostly Celtic

    I was always unsure about my Celtic heritage although I knew I had Irish, Scottish and English heritage.  I had my DNA done through Familytree dna.com and found I was 92% Orcadian (the Orkney Islands were used as a test group, I guess).  The other 8% is Middle eastern which I...

    Indeed I Am.

    I am Celt from Brittany, born in Canada. However, I only wish to return to the old country and go back as often as I can. I bought a 23,000 sq meter forest near Bubry, Morbihan and I can't wait to retire in a few more years. My family is from the area, all within a 15km radius...

    I Consider Myself To Be A Celtic Beauty

    My heritage is French, Irish, English, and Scottish so you can trace my roots all the way to the Celtic Isle. With that said I have no clue what it truly means to be someone of Celtic heritage when Christianity came along they pretty much obliterated the Celtic culture so I have...

    Proud of It

    A lot of people don't know that Celtic is an ethnicity that comprises a lot of heritages and cultures and languages, not one particular one. Celtic comprises Brittany, Irish, Scottish, Cornwall, Mann, and Welsch, the lands surrounding the Irish sea. They were at one time tribal...

    "Who so ever asks me of my birth, I will tell them I am born of Irish Princes who ruled in Donegal a thousand years ago; that I am descended of the High Kings of Ireland, and my name is from the Clann O'Dochartaigh!" That's my family's motto. I'm descended directly from...

    Yet Another Branch On My Family Tree

    I totally embrace this heritage for its' fey qualities.  I love the Druidic heritage and the ancient vibes.  I feel connected in so many ways.  I feel a connection to the earth and all things mystical!  A heritage of being "one" with Creation nourishes my soul

    Who Drew Lines On A Map?
