Re: Gedmatch matches....

We have no problem with your doing this; however, you cannot compare your results from our DNA Plus with Gedmatch as that is a genealogy program, so it it is like comparing apples and oranges. Also, you cannot compare your results with other DNA tests from other companies as we use both a different ...

Re: Missing alleles?

If only one allele is listed, that means both alleles are the same. For instance: "D3S1358 15 16" means one allele measured 15 and the other 16; "D3S1358 15 " means both alleles measured 15. The lab just doesn't repeat identical alleles. Many lab reports have one or two, sometime...

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.

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: Cherokee Autosomal Research Project

James and Raven,

Details of the two studies Cherokee DNA Studies Phase III and Autosomal Cherokee DNA Studies Phase II are on the website dnaconsultants.com .

I'm still organizing the files, but I'll try to get you answers not addressed there. You can email me at jakay@dnaconsultants.com .

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.
