another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.

our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting

more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
