Re: Enrolled Cherokees

Raven, I checked on the Enrolled sampled population and was told they are from Georgia so they likely are part of the Eastern Band. As we know, the genetic alleles reveal connections our family histories often don't include. I had no idea I had any Native until I got my results. I have Cherokee Admi...

Re: Viking DNA?

Yes, it's all intriguing. In the DNA Consultants' new Primeval DNA testing's Vikings in Medieval Iceland, I had a high match of 10.62%, and an 11.40% to the individual Njal.

Re: Mexican/Central/So.American Great-grandparents

Shari,

I'm glad you've taken the time and put in the effort to fill in the missing parts of your family tree. These give us a sense of who we come from, who they were in their own time and how they fit into the fabric of human history.
