Hello! Introduction from jp26

Hello!! I am an eclectic witch. I just recently found out from 23andme I am descended from a celtic tribe and Norse vikings. I’m so excited to know that, so I am trying to incorporate some of those elements now. I’m glad I found Spells8, I feel like I’m home!

Welcome, @jp26 :heart:

I’m Bry, one of the moderators here in the forum and a fellow Eclectic Witch. It’s a pleasure to meet you!

I hope you don’t mind that I rehomed your lovely introduction into a post of its own- things can get rather buried in the comments of other posts, so this way the Coven will know to come give you a warm welcome :blush:

Awwww I’m so happy to hear that- we’re blessed to have you here! Make yourself right at home :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Much love and many blessings!

Welcome to the forum @jp26 :wave:

My name is Megan and I’m one of the moderators here at Spells8 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: It’s nice to meet you!

I’ve done my 23andMe DNA and my mom has our family tree information back several centuries. I’m about 98% European and 2%…something else? :joy: I’ll have to go look in a second because I don’t remember. I do know that my ancestors came to the United States from Ireland in the 1700s, but many of them came to the United States from other places in Europe before that. I have ancestors on both sides of the Salem Witch Trials, which is interesting!

Okay, I lied… I’m 99.9% European :joy: but honestly, I already knew this. Anyway, I’m blabbering on. It’s wonderful to meet you! Please feel free to make yourself at home! :revolving_hearts:
