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...

Re: Melungeon test

I don't want to mislead you, the Melungeon version of the DNA Fingerprint Test, based on the atDNA 7.0 database, gives all the information of the DNA Fingerprint Plus test with a Melungeon Match analysis and special Melungeon certificate. You may prefer this one as it has the specific population you...

Re: Native American map & marker

I was in touch with Sue who said you should email her your questions to suel@dnaconsultants.com . And I wondered if you'd changed your email on your information on this forum?

Re: Melungeon test

I checked, and Melungeon is one of the 450 specific populations you can potentially match dependent on the strength of your DNA to that population. Jakay

Re: Jewish markers with Iberian background

Good afternoon, Tina, I understand being new to the forum. So am I, and at this point, I don't analyze reports. You can call DNA Consultants at 888-806-2588 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mountain Time on Monday through Friday and speak with Teresa Panther-Yates or Dr. Donald Yates to help you interpret you...

Re: I'm trying to gain a better understanding

Good day, Finding out which ancestor has Native roots is through genealogy not DNA. However that is not always possible because it could be deep ancestry or an American Indian tribe that was wiped out or not enough information can be found concerning your ancestral lines for one reason or another.

Re: Jewish markers with Iberian background

Good day,

All reports have a key to the markers for additional information, and that's all I have. Jewish I is considered too admixed to determine. Jewish II is most closely linked with Ashkenazi and is relatively rare. Jewish III is most closely linked with Sephardic Jewish.

Hope this helps,

Re: Cherokee's in Mexico

I'm one of the many who did not know this. We learned about the Trail of Tears in elementary school, but not all its ramifications. We learned many settled in Oklahoma and some stayed behind if they could, but not where else their descendants went.
