Re: Primeval DNA Test website launched

For those who did some of the prior tests, is there an ability to do just add on singles? If not now in the future? And it appears some were dropped from the 10 here, or were some renamed?

Thank you.

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: How to add on to prior Primeval DNA test

I can see there is work being done on the Primeval DNA area, is there an ETA on when all will be finished? I plan to come back for add ons and at that point might run some other family members.

Thank you.

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: Primeval results

Eran, thank you. I suppose also most of the results are fairly close in the high 4s to low 5s on the ones where I would expect higher results. Then the Jewish lower not unexpected and the Chumash a bit of an outlier. I thought I read they were carbon dated to 1500's, is there possibly some European ...
