Re: Welcome to Primeval DNA Forum

Thank you for the reply Eran. I recognized your name from having done a few transfers to HomeDNA. That test picked up some of the trace results for me on Native. Then for my middle son yours the only one so far to show his Scandinavian, known Norwegian on his dad's side. The blue GPS right on Norway...

Professional genealogy help?

Has anyone used a professional to help try to figure out your genealogy instead of going it on your own on ancestry.com etc.? I feel like most is probably right but there are some rabbit holes and dead ends that I would like to break through. Someone who would perhaps know the right sources to go to...

Re: Wayne Co KY Cherokees

I don't know where mine originated, and I somehow have the US Cherokee Enrolled at #1 on my top 50. I have a lot of family members showing as born in Kentucky but not Wayne but rather Barren, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Green and Montgomery Counties, some no listing exactly where. I have a dead end her ...

Re: Melungeon Allele

Nice to see you JanRavenspirit. :) ... I have a great aunt who when she was young looked quite a lot like the Armenian woman 3rd photo. Armenian was 3rd on my megapopulations.

Thanks! Yep....I'm still trying to figure that one out, unless the Armenian is in fact- Cherokee!

Re: Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America: A Genealogical History

Hi Lindsey. It is interesting. A direct relative is named among possible Maryland crypto Jews or Muslims. Elias Amos Veatch is my 4th Great Grandfather. The name is different and is variant of French for cow Vache, which the Spanish Vaca/Baca is said to be crypto Jewish. Still I think more likely hi...

Re: Possible False Hispanic match if you have NA ancestry

Hello Teresa. I suspect mine are false due to this- I have two Native (Cherokee and Native FL population) in top 5 then I did have Portuguese at #8 and 9, Iberian Andalusian at #2, then Brazilian pops in there at #6 and several of those and other Hispanic scattered. Green dots on map over much of Ce...

Re: Jews and Muslims in British Colonial America: A Genealogical History

I am reading the book, still looking around and trying to complete my genealogy. I had one Jewish III and two Jewish IV markers so I think those tend more to Turkish or middle eastern? My sister not done this test but she has shown Ashkenazi Jewish on some tests.

Re: Welcome to Primeval DNA Forum

I uploaded my raw 23andme from their version 4, are you able to do version 5 their newest as well since I have other family in that version? Also, given 23andme and Ancestry etc. use the SNP instead of STR data then are both in the raw data then? Just a matter of how you extract it (I expect so sinc...

I had Cherokee Enrolled (n=33) at #1, Native American-Florida (n=105) at #5, Native American - Lumbee (n=106) at #42 - quite a lot of Brazil matches lik...
