    The Surname Riggs

    Okay, my grandfather was adopted, so I have the adopted last name, that one is scottish. Anyhow, I know what my biological-surname is, but I don't know the origin. I've heard English and Danish...
    So, where does Riggs come from?
    mtDNA - H_7_a (ftDNA) H_7_a_1 (23andme)
    AbDNA - 100% Eur. 23andme: 99.99% Eur., .01% Af.
    23andme: 99.73% European, .27% African
    23andme V3 update awaiting use, got a kit for mom too.
