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
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
