Cherokee, Natufian and American Indian
Posted: Thu Dec 19, 2019 1:59 pm
My recent Cherokee test resulted in a highly likely for Cherokee ancestry. While I realize that DNA Consultants can not comment on other companies or other raw data utilities. I have a question regarding Natufian percentages on Gedmatch. Also on my Melungeon report concerning my alleles I have 3 Jewish markers, 1 NA II marker and 1 Asian marker. On Gedmatch I show 38% Natufian. Could this be ancient dna? Could it be related to my Cherokee test results? My Melungeon #1 match? A lot of my ancestry dates back to Colonial America, and this being the case I am theorizing that my Jewish, NA and Asian could possibly all be related to Eastern Seaboard Colonial America as there is a lack of reference populations for Northern Native Americans on the Eastern seaboard. I also show similarities with Minnesota, Michigan, Florida Native American as well as Canadian Aboriginals and Amazonian, Orinoquian, Andean, Paraguayan, Mestizo on my DNA consultants results. Could it be that there is much more Native American ancestry within my genetic makeup? Are the markers indicative of a possible ancient Phoenician signature and admixture relating to Amerindians of the Americas?
