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...

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 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
