Re: Crypto Jews

Christopher, I agree we may not have heard/learned about everything in school.

The best we can hope for is that schooling gives us a thirst for knowledge a...

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...

Good question. I asked Dr. Yates and he replied:

This is the aggregate population of new tribal populations described here: https://dnaconsultants.com/news/tribal- ... ose-added/ . It's found on our website.

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. Fascinating branch of heritage. If anyone wants to learn more about connections to ancient populations, sample the company's l...

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

Shari,
