Ian Smiles

Hello Having recently had my DNA tested, results showed that 8% traced back to Ireland and Scotland. My mother was a Miss Green and I feel I have her lineage back to the 1600s in Bedfordshire, England. However, I am intrigued as to whether or not my 8% could be down from the Green line. Are you able to say how I could further prove that the 8% is in fact through my Green family lineage? Thank you.
