Some 20 years ago, a study was made with placentas from about 150 women of varied ancestries. The results gave very definite results as to the variety of ancestries discovered, going all the way back to Africa. Why does Ancestry have to give such fuzzy summations of their results? Why not just say that "this is how our results stack up against the research done 20 years ago"?ReplyDelete
Ancestry only does autosomal testing; the combination of your parents' DNA. From them you receive half from your father and half from your mother. So, you have one fourth of your grandparents' DNA, one eighth of great grandparents and son one until the amount is so too small to be of any use. Autosomal can only trace 5-6 generations with any accuracy.Delete
Mitochondrial DNA comes only from the mother; Y-DNA only from the father. They are stable enough to test back to Africa. Those tests are expensive and only available through one testing company; Family Tree DNA.
Our family has had the ancestry autosomal and the FTDNA Y-DNA testing done.
I ordered two more - one for my Dad to help identify and confirm his so-called Cherokee and Osage ancestry and one for my Grandmother who may help since her DNA can go back further than anyone in our family at this time. And, we will get both her mother's ancestry and her father's, which we are unable to do since all of her brothers are all passed on (to get a direct line test on the male line). I am excited what the results will bring. Next sale, I am going to purchase one for my boyfriend and my mother. Our family is going to be well linked on Ancestry.com :)ReplyDelete
