Re: Enrolled Cherokees

I am the opposite matching the Enrolled Cherokee as my #1 but not the others. Then my sister none of the Cherokee were top 50 and only Lumbee. I had Lumbee around my 42nd of top 50 World matches. I also had Florida Native high, like top 5. My sister showed a lot of African, Jamaica or African Americ...

Re: Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

Well now I looked at 23andme and they have done an update as of October. They don't give me but do my dad, sister and my son (from my side!) some trace Siberian and Broadly Chinese and SE Asian now. My version 4 not reading the same on their new chip I presume but my son prior had Native from his da...

Re: Guiana Amerindian Slaves in 1600’s Barbados

Hello Christopher. My 23andme is on version 4 and my dad, sister and one of my sons on version 5. Mine originally had a vague E Asian and/or Native American trace. Over updates they have erased that. My dad and all show some trace African that they are stepping out. Took it off the map into trace an...

Re: Native Americans in match list

Hi Jimbo. My # 5 on DNA Consultants was Florida Native and I have had another service saying I have Muskogean Creek Florida based... but my family was not so far south. So to me that makes either Lumbee or Cherokee more likely, but I believe that there was some mixing. No card here either, just a fa...

Re: Native Americans in match list

A pure guess if that #14 North American Native Americans was your only or highest Native match might be that the test can see the relationship but can't say which tribe you are related to? I tried to figure how they came to that sample size, not sure if it is a combination of several or its own group.

Re: Rhineland Palatine yDna

When I saw the R-M269 looked familiar went and looked at dad and my brother. They have their Y info from 23andme. Both show a different sub clade under R-M269 (they are father and son, I guess just my brother they gave a sub clade lower? Or changed their mind on that. Not the same surname as your fa...

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

Hello Christopher, Wow, small world, we are some sort of distant cousin then as to my knowledge all the Veatchs/Veitchs in the US are all descended from James "the Sheriff" Veitch who immigrated from Scotland to Maryland in like 1651. At some point part of the family kept the Veitch spelli...

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...
