Re: Don’t know how to read my test results...Help pls!

Ariana, unfortunately we are not able to give you any more definitive information than what you have. Your Native American matches were all in South America and you should be able to look them up on the internet.

Re: Cherokee DNA Match Help

Thanks for your comment. Everyone who tests has the same n=62. The n refers to the sample each person is compared against and is the same for everyone.

Re: Mega Population Score and Ethnic Panel

In general, the Megapopulations ranking is more significant than the marker panel. Some markers are passed down and others are not, just as everyone in your family might have brown eyes but yours are blue. Your blue eyes came from someone in your ancestry. A sibling might have different markers but ...
