10 Rare Gene Alleles

Postby deborahmcdonald » Tue Jan 12, 2021 12:36 am

Wow 10 Rare Gene Alleles! I am truly surprised.
Scythian
Akhenaten
King Tut
2 - Khoisan
Europa
Yellow Emperor
The Ancient One
Crazy Horse - which was totally surprising!
And
People of the Steppes

I had Cherokee at #45 and Native American at #18
Could Native American at #18 be Lakota?

Good afternoon, Deborah,

You didn't say which Native American population you saw at #18. Could you check again and let me know?

Hi, my certificate just says Native American #18. I do have Cherokee though at #45. I also have 2 Alleles for Native American II.

Thanks, Deborah,

The #18 on your certificate refers to the whole group of populations that fall under Native American megapopulations. Just as we have several Jewish populations that fall under the umbrella of the Jewish megapopulations or the Central European label.

Your #18 means your Native connections are 18th in number of matches in all of your megapopulations.

Hope this helps.

So are there Cherokees that have the Rare Gene for Crazy Horse?

Deborah,

It appears some do, but we haven't studied the occurences.
