Good day everyone,

I wanted to give Praise to the good Lord, and to the team at DNA Consulting. I got my results back this week with a prayer answered.

As can be seen, U.S Cherokee Admixed (n=62) appears as match #11. U.S. Admixed Cherokee (n=92) appears as match #137, and U.S. Cherokee (n=33) appears as N.L. No other Native American appears in your top matches.

Bases on your results, it is thus HIGHLY LIKELY you have significant amounts of Cherokee Ancestry.

I am blessed. And, looking forward to continuing my research. I've been researching for two years off and on.

One note of caution, if you are relying on Ancestry.com testing, its not all together factual. I base this statement on facts wherein i compared their test results with the results of DNA consultants. DNA Consultants is more accurate. Just sharing my experience.

Happy for you.

I completely agree with your assessment of DNA Consultants as compared to other “mainstream” dna testing companies.

In my Melungeon report I have:

Melungeon (n=40) at number 1

Native American - Lumbee (n=106) at number 3

US Cherokee admixed (n=62) at number 9

Blessings to you in your journey on finding your people.

It has been a long and hard road for me. From stories handed down by certain family members to broken and lost trees. To wondering why I just don't look like the rest of my family.

The trail DNA consultants has provided me is a welcomed one. And I am thankful to the Creator for Dr Donald Yates and his wife for giving everyone in the world a chance at finding their “true” heritage.

On a side note. My ancestry.com and my daughters previously stated ancestry from East Coast, Tennessee and Early Midwest. All tied into our paper trail. But recently they took that away. Based on a new genome “chip”. They now say I am 100% Irish! Well. I do have Irish in me. But not 100%. To paraphrase Dr Yates. We do not use percentages as they are not accurate. To quote myself. Haplogroup origins described by genetic scientists are not accurate either. From my experience and research into my familial lines You can surely trust DNA Consultants review and analyses of your genome
