Re: Native American map & marker

I checked with the investigators who said we do not do percentages as it is not very scientific as no population is pure because of admixture. They will be happy to go over your report if you calls them M-F 10-6 MT at 888-806-2588.

Hope this helps,

Re: Confused and disappointed!

The investigators would like you to call them at 888-806-2588 M- F 10-6 MT as they would need to look at your individual report and go over it. They pointed out that oral history can sometimes be wrong because it is quite possible to have someone in your ancestry from another tribe be adopted by ano...

Re: Melungeon test

The investigator said we added the Melungeon data back in 2011, so there is no need for an update unless you are looking for Melungeon beyond your top 50 matches. ( We search in 450 populations with the update so, you can find out where it is and how strong your match is by ordering the Melungeon up...

Re: Do I have Cherokee Ancestry?

Hello, Yes, this is possible especially if it is a small tribe or a tribe like Blackfoot that has no published data on it. We have all data that is published in academic and forensic science. It is also possible if you are related to a tribe that was wiped out as you are matching living populations....

Re: I found Chamorro in my DNA test. What does this mean if I'm unaware of it in my family?

Gerald, I checked with DNA Consultants investigators, and they gave the following answer: Austronesian populations are generally considered deep ancestry ( meaning it is thousands of years old and beyond our ability to determine how old this link is and should be ignored). The only exception would b...

Re: Jewish markers with Iberian background

That seems likely using an educated guess only as these are areas where Sephardic Jews live/d; however, this is not a direct Sephardic Jewish match to a specific population in our database. Spanish- Majorcan Jews is a possible direct match to a specific Sephardic Jewish population as is the green di...
