Re: Brazilian Amazon matches

It basically boils down to geography: which of two Brazilian states you're from. Belem Amazonians are from the northeast state of Para, that holds the mouth of the Amazon and has an Atlantic coast. Brazilian Amazons are from the northern, inland state of Amazona. According to a 2015 autosomal study ...

Re: Cohen Modal Haplotype

The Jewish DNA Fingerprint Plus test is an autosomal test, not sex-related, and won't give you information related to the Y-chromosome. You would need to take a Premium Male DNA Test based on Y-DNA. DNA Consultants website can explain the test, and if you want to order one, you can do it through the...

Re: Cohen Modal Haplotype

I contacted Dr. Yates, and he said the Cohen Modal Haplotype is defined by a set of 10-12 Y-STR values. If you have taken a Y chromosome test you will be told if you match them (J1 haplotype) and you will also match a bunch of men named Cohen/Cone etc.

Hope this helps,

Re: At a loss

Dr. Donald Yates, principal investigator, says that Givens was a colonial Virginia and early Tennessee surname I have referred to in several of my genealogy books. Some of them were known to have taken Cherokee brides in the Longhunter period (before 1790).

Hope this helps.

Re: Raw Data

Raven,

No. There is no way to do this as you are trying to compare our data with others. Our DNA testing is based on a different scientific analysis: different companies; different methods.

Re: Surname

I checked with Dr. Yates, and he sent this for you: Askew can be traced to a Norman William de Ascough, named after Aiscough, an Old Norse place-name. His family could have been Jewish or crypto-Jewish, particularly since he was “father of the English navy.” Other admirals and naval administrators w...

Re: Michigan Native American

I didn't know I had any. I also took the Rare Genes from History test and received a First Peoples marker, which is foun...
