Please feel free to establish a link to this page from your personal DNATribes(t/m) test results page.

What is the DNATribes(t/m) aka Personal Genetic Analysis test? See the DNATribes.com website for details.

This Autosomal DNA (atDNA STR) chromosome test/analysis expresses the estimate of a population group affiliation or geographic location of origin affiliation as a Match Likelihood Index (MLI). According to DNATribes, the Match Likelihood Index (MLI) score represents the odds of belonging to that population relative to your odds of belonging to a generic human population. This ratio is a measure of the relative match strength. The relative match strengths are expressed with terms ranging from Strongest to Lowest. The top several strongest relative matches are plotted on a map of the world using symbols and colors. Via the keys, legends, and maps for each category and group relative match, the receiver of the report is given the relative strength of their matches with the assigned terms as: Strongest, Strong, Average, Low, and Lowest.

Editors note: If your genealogy is predominantly European you may wish to run your atDNA STR CODIS alleles through the European STR-Base.org database and see what matches you get there, as an additional, second analysis and use of your new atDNA STR CODIS data. Another website some may wish to explore processing their CODIS markers through is the CODIS database maintained by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Centre of Forensic Sciences Population Studies Data Centre.

Comments: I had them run the results again since I am not Asian and the results came back the same. I also had them do a SNP analysis using my 23andMe SNP results (v3 chip) and the results were more in line with European results. When they reviewed my 23andMe SNP analysis, and here is a copy/paste of their explanation: Dear Paul, We have analyzed your 23andme SNP data. The following findings stood out to us as potentially the reason why the STR test picked up Asian genetic signatures. 1. While your population matches and mixture are predominately Northwest European, your 44 regional cluster mixture (p. 4) includes Finnish (11.2%), Mari-Chuvash (4.2%), Tatar-Chuvash (0.8%) and Kannadi-Kurumba South India (0.7%) components. These components in aggregate explain ~17% of your ancestral contributions and are directly or indirectly (in Finnish cluster's case) to Asian genetic signatures. The STR test may have picked up unique Asian marker values that have been passed down across many generations and would correspond to these Asian genetic signatures that do come up in your 44 regional cluster mixture. 2. Your population mixture further confirms the 44 regional cluster mixture results (20% Finland and 4% Mari components). Let us know if you have any questions. Sincerely, DNA Tribes I have both PDFs saved to my computer if you would like a copy. Regional Cluster Percentage NW Europe 30.9% Spanish-Portuguese 15.1% Balto-Slavic 12.6% Finnish 11.2% Central European 10.5% Basque 6.6% Aegean-Balkan-Italian 4.8% Mari-Chuvash 4.2% Azeri-Kurdish-Persian-Turkey 2.5% Tatar-Chuvash 0.8% Kannadi-Kurumba South India 0.7% Aka-Mbuti-Hadza 0.1% Mesoamerican 0.0%

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am adopted, so when I began this search I knew nothing. When I found my biological mother, I was told I was French and Native American on her side and Irish and Scandinavian on my father's side. I have olive skin tone with dark brown eyes and hair. I have been asked if I was Native American, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Italian. From what my mother told me, I assumed I was mostly Native American.

Comments: Biggest surprise was the Jewish. I'm surprised my mother never mentioned that to me unless she was unaware. It turns out the only Native American results for me are Greenland Eskimo. Any other Native American results are mixed race Metis-Mestizo mostly located in Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico & Costa Rica. I suspect this is from my Spanish & Portuguese ancestors relocating to Central & South America. (Results from Native American and Extended Panels). I am very pleasantly surprised that I am Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Greek, finding out the same year I have dedicated myself to learning to speak Spanish. It makes it extremely special to me. I am also surprised there is a good deal of Middle Eastern and India. Roma Gypsy shows up several times in my extended panel, so that makes sense for India. China even shows up, so over all, this is the best test I have taken. It makes complete sense when I look in the mirror. SNP tests have me mostly Northern European with very limited Spanish & Italian which just didn't feel right to me. If you really want a test that digs deep and feels the most accurate, DNA Tribes is it!

Comments: WOW! What a difference seven years makes. (See the test results I originally got, which I posted here on this forum on June 17, 2008.) When I first had the test done, I have to admit I was a little disappointed that the matches I did have weren't that strong: the highest MLI score was only 13.32, for Finland. But now that the population data have been so greatly expanded, I'm just amazed how strong India is in my genetic make-up. I shared the report with my supervisor and she said I was "straight up Indian"... rather funny for someone with blond hair and blue eyes! Nevertheless, I have to say I'm delighted with the results -- it also explains my affinity for Indian food! -- and look forward to taking a trip to India within the next few years to learn more about the land of my ancestors. As I mentioned in my original post, I'm adopted, and had no knowledge of my biological parents until about 2007. Now, I've met two sisters of my biological mother (who passed away in 1996) and various cousins. They report the family as being from Western Europe: the British Isles and Germany. However, none of that turns up in my results from DNA Tribes. Unfortunately, I know nothing about my biological father. Was he from India?? If not, he certainly had many ancestors who were. I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who might be able to better clarify these results for me, or who may have a similar experience. In any case, I feel more complete in a way, now that I have a better understanding of my genetic ancestry. I'm still learning more and more, but at this point I have to say I'm very proud that my roots are in such an ancient and venerable culture.

Comments: Well i have to admit I was and still shocked at these results!I don't understand why Spain and Portugal are so dominant and I had no idea that I had so much Slavic DNA in my blood also!I was a little upset that Ireland or Scotland did not show op on the list.My fathers mother is the only person in our family that could pass for a Spaniard or Italian because she had very pitch black hair and black eyes ...I once asked her if we have some Italian or Native America ancestry somewhere in our family but she always acted as if the question was crazy. but now i know it is probably more of the Spanish and Portuguese that i see in her...I look more Irish or German with blondish red hair and green eyes!!If I have such strong Iberian origins,then why so much talk about Irish and Scottish ancestry...i am confused!If anyone has some insight of ideas on why I am Spanish but do not feel Spanish feel free to write me to my email adress.Thank you !

Comments: The results confirmed that I have Native American (Timucuan/Arawak/Carib), Spanish (Roma/Calo Gypsy), Moroccan Berber, Egyptian, and East Indian ancestry (based on extended matches and family research). Being that I am from SC dating back to atleast 1790 and am a part of the 2nd largest family there, I can't wait to see other Sout Carolinians' results.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I'm Nicaraguan-born American, as are my parents. I suspected my ancestry would be Spanish and some kind of Indigenous Central American or something like that. It was always said to me that my grandparents were Spaniards and my dad's dad was Spanish with Middle Eastern descent. That's all I know. So basically, I was expecting just mestizo (mixed European with indigenous). Boy was I wrong.

Comments: Basically I have learned that my stock is almost entirely "European and Near Eastern Regions" or Caucasoid. By U.S. standards I am not a white person, and neither do I consider myself one... but my ancestry is what would classify me Caucasian. I'm very ambiguous in appearance. I've been confused for Portuguese, Italian, Egyptian, Lebanese, Pakistani before, so I'm very Mediterranean in appearance. Still, my results are very shocking to me.

Comments: I was not surprised about the heavy Eastern European content in my results. My mother's family seems to have been Ukrainian like they claimed, as I am mostly Ukrainian. I never knew I had some Spanish, Basque, Portuguese Italian or Balkan roots. There was no Estonian or Latvian. However, my grandparents always told me that they had some Southern European ancestry. I thought they made that up, but the test confirms they did not. I was not surprised to find Russian, Greek, Polish, or Mongol as I know Ukraine has been invaded by Russia, Greece, Poland and Mongolia in the past. The test picked off Bavaria, Germany, which was really impressive. I found the results extremely exicitng.

Comments: As rumor confirms, it looks as though I do have lots of Tatar and Roma ancestry. I am surprised about Mordva which I guess are a group of people in Russia closely related to the Finns and Chuvash, which are a people closely related to the Karaits, Tatars and Khazars. I wish I knew which side of the family these results are coming from.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My father's side is Polish-Jewish my mother's side is ethnic Polish. There was always rumor on my mom's side of the family that we had Mongolian ancestry since my grandfather's side of the family looked very Eurasian. This is based on the fact that the Mongols invaded Poland in Medieval times and it is said many women were impregnated as a result. I later found that any Mongolian or Tatar ancestry would be most likely from Tatar settlers who immigrated to Poland in the 15th-century. My mother's side also claims Jewish ancestry (with no evidence, just rumor), Swedish, German, Dutch or any ethnic group which invaded or came through Poland over the centuries. My own research has indicated some distant Lithuanian/Ukrainian and Jews who converted to Catholicism to marry into the family, but no Swedes or Germans as far as I can see. I know nothing of my father's side other than that they were Jews from Poland. My grandfather was born in what is now Belorus but his parents were born in Bialystok in the 1850s and our surname can be traced to as early as the 18th-century in Bialystok Poland. All sides of my father's family were from what used to be known as Galicia and became Russia after the Polish partitions and now is Belorus or the Ukraine.

Comments: Hmm. I am very confused. Yes, there were actual repeats throughout the results. Yes, Belorussian really is repeated several times, which is what I don't get. I find it very interesting that the only part of my family which hailed from Belorus and Russia was the Jewish side of my family and I was lead to believe that that part of the family was pure Jewish. Of course, there are no records, but if history serves us right then I thought it was quite unusual for Jews to be mixing with the native host population, but perhaps this shows otherwise? My mother's side of the family was from mostly Central and South Poland, perhaps they also have a huge Russian and Belorussian admixture? I think it is rather ironic since both sides of my family had an aversion to Russians, LOL. I was very excited to see Estonian. I have been a big fan of Estonian culture, but I never considered that I could possibly have actual Estonian roots. I was very surprised to see Spanish and Basque! History claims that Bona Sforza brought Spanish engineers and architects to Poland in the 17th-century or so, so perhaps I am related to one of these migrant workers? As for the Australian aboriginal, I am somewhat confused. My family immigrated directly from Eastern Europe the last 3 generations. None of us have any connection to Australia whatsoever, much less the indigenous population. South east Asian was also surprising but I guess that could be the Indo-European connection? And I have a very low amount of Mestizo? As I have said before, my family has not been in the United States very long and I know for a certainty that we do not have any Hispanic or Native American origins.

Comments: I was very surprised to find a lot of Slavic ancestry in the results. I think I get my North Indian ancestry via Romani Gypsies because my paternal grandmother once said we had Gypsy ancestry. People often ask me if I am Southern European, Latino, or Middle Eastern. After taking this test I can answer "yes" (genetically) to all three questions.

Comments: after much research I found my autosomal dna show I have muhc Belgic-Celtic ancestry.This matches with my family history as my family is from the Southern USA-the southeast and most early English settlers to this region came from Southern England and the south/west of England where Wessex used to be and also was heavily settled by Belgic tribes in early times.I have only high matches for Belgium population and not for the Netherlands of Holland or Germany or Scandinavia nor for Central European matches either none for South German or Austria and little for france.I also found many German tribes settled in northern portugal and finland also.But again after much research and going over the results more thoroughly it seems logical it shows Belgic-Celtic autosomal dna from those belgic tribes who heavily settled the southern part of England where muhc of my family surnames and history have come from,plus most of global population matches are for other British colonial diaspora groups like Europeans in Australia,New Zealand, and South Africa than for USA even though I am from the USA.It shows my British colonial USA origins.

My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Guest: Susan Allen Date-Time: Wednesday, November 03, 2010 at 15:32:11 (CDT) My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am Native American. Grandmother called herself Black Irish meaning Native American I think. I am also German, Irish, English, and Scottish. I may have other ancestral lines that I don't know of. I took the test to see if I was Indian as I have some of the facial features, so does my mother; high cheekbones, dak hair, epicanthal eyefolds, ect... DNA tribes results said that I was 12% Apache but could be up to a quarter. I just dont know why these other countries showed up on my results like Brazil, Israel, Csango Romania as I have on known ancestors from there. Perhaps they are my deep ancestral roots. Spain and Portugal were on my top 20. Those countries are representive of deep Irish/English ancestral roots. If anyone knows how to interpet my test please email me. Thanks.

I took the test to see if I was Indian as I have some of the facial features, so does my mother; high cheekbones, dak hair, epicanthal eyefolds, ect... DNA tribes results said that I was 12% Apache but could be up to a quarter. I just dont know why these other countries showed up on my results like Brazil, Israel, Csango Romania as I have on known ancestors from there. Perhaps they are my deep ancestral roots.

Comments: I expected mostly Northern European with some Southern European and a small amount of Native American. My test results have come out mostly Southern European. I tested with another company previously and got the same type of results. My ancestry is Pennsylvania/Maryland German and French, Virginia/North Carolina English and Scottish all in the 1600s and 1700s. My French ancestry is Languedoc, and I have one Northern Italian surname in my family that I can't trace. I do have some brick walls in my genealogy research. The results are interesting. I'm just not sure how it happened.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I have done extensive research on my family history - on my father's side I am almost entirely English and German (with various lines from the Black Forest region, Bavaria, and Switzerland), with a single Irish ancestor and a single French Huguenot ancestor. My mother is equal parts English and Ukrainian.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Uzbek (Xinjiang, Chinese Turkestan) 0.87, Gadaba Tribal (Orissa, India) (0.9), Qatar (0.56), El-Minia Egypt (0.5), Southern Thailand ((0.7)

Comments: I am a pale white girl with naturally blonde hair and light green eyes. I have done extensive research on my family history and my ancestry is almost entirely English, German, and Ukrainian. So, to have my results come back as Uzbek (Chinese Turk) was initially a complete shock and I was sure a mistake was made somehow. I imagine the results must come from my Ukrainian ancestry, but I have no idea why Asian is so prominent. I took another DNA test with a different company and my results were Chinese. I have no known Asian ancestry, all of my ancestors were from Europe and with the exception of my Ukrainian grandmother, have been in the U.S. for many many generations. I thought it was possible that I would have some African or Native American heritage, but both tests show there is no chance I have either in my background.

Comments: My Native American Panel shows the following: Quechua (Ecuador) (0) 0.03 Aymara and Mestizo (La Paz, Bolivia) (0) 0.01 Otomi (Ixmiquilpan Valley, Mexico) (0) 0.01 Purepecha (Tarascan) (Zipiajo, Mexico) (Mountain area) (0) 0.01 Hna Hnu (Otomi) (Hidalgo, Mexico) (0) 0.01 Chol Maya (Northeast Chiapas, Mexico) (0) 0.01 I believe this is accurate for me. I think I'm roughly 1/16th southeastern U.S. Native American. DNA Tribes is becoming more and more accurate as they add more STR markers to their tests. 23 and me didn't show any Native American for me but I honestly think that is incorrect. This test did very well for me.

Comments: I am Native American. Grandmother called herself Black Irish meaning Native American I think. I am also German, Irish, English, and Scottish. I may have other ancestral lines that I don't know of. I took the test to see if I was Indian as I have some of the facial features, so does my mother; high cheekbones, dak hair, epicanthal eyefolds, ect... DNA tribes results said that I was 12% Apache but could be up to a quarter. I just dont know why these other countries showed up on my results like Brazil, Israel, Csango Romania as I have on known ancestors from there. Perhaps they are my deep ancestral roots. Spain and Portugal were on my top 20. Those countries are representive of deep Irish/English ancestral roots. If anyone knows how to interpet my test please email me. Thanks.

Comments: I was shocked at how low my Northwest European MLI has proved to be, verified through DNA testing. This low Northwest European percentage, shown in the World Region Match, refutes any prior assumptions of a my having a primarily Western European genetic composition, despite my having a Native American mtDNA result. Response from DNAT when I inquired about percentage of Native American ancestry shown in my test: "Results for your DNA profile are most consistent with approximately 1/2 Native American ancestry..." As I have already researched my mother's Amerindian lines,and since receiving these results, I have now re-visited my father's last recorded genealogy and have derived that the last locale of my father's earliest paternal ancestor was an 1800s Seneca Indian Reservation in New York, where I find his surname, and given name listed among others. Based on these significant DNA results, I can only assess that my father, like my mother, had hidden Native American ancestry. DNAT adds: "...Results indicate that the Native American regions where your own DNA profile is most frequent are the Central American, Mexican, and Mayan regions. These regions are associated with the early development of maize (corn) growing civilizations, which spread from Mesoamerica to more distant parts of North and South America (including traditional Six Nations lands of the eastern US and Canada)." Also from DNAT: "Modern Turkic speaking populations of the Altaian region share genetic characteristics with East Asian, European, and to a degree Native American populations. These links most likely reflect ancient contacts across the Bering Strait and links with the ancestors of Native American populations." In addition to consulting the references, I plan to visit the site of the 1800s Seneca Indian Reservation and hopefully discover more about my father's family as I have learned about my mother's. I had never expected to find that I had such a clear pattern of Native American ancestry demonstrated on both my father's and my mother's sides -- let alone a tribal affiliation in the United States.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My family history indicated German, English, Scotch, Irish, and Welsh ancestry. Had my Y-DNA tested by familytreedna, and it was E1b1b1a2, subclade V13. My strongest match frequency was in Bulgaria 3.9%, followed by Greece 3.1%, and Slovenia 2.6% There was some speculation of Jewish heritage on my dad's side.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Bulgarians (Bulgaria)(.93) 630, Marmara, Turkey (.94) 389, Morocco (.86) 381, Podlasie, Northeast Poland (.7) 362, Croatia (.78) 298, Iceland (.69) 291, Istanbul, Turkey (.9) 276, Bedouin, Negev, Israel (.91) 258, Belarus (.63) 214. Note: all the rest under 200 and MLI fractions rounded.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Same as "Native", except Roma (Baranya, Hungary) comes after Podlasie, Poland, and has the values (.58) 321.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - World Region Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: North African (.74) 95, Mediterranean (.62) 64, Eastern European (.57) 57, Agean (.65) 51, Finnic (.53) 46, Levantine (.67) 39, Arabian (.67) 38, Mesopotamian (.63) 24, Northwest European (.37) 20, Horn of Africa (.62) 17, Mestizo (.28) 7, North India (.31) 5.

Comments: I was impressed that the DNAtribes test picked up on the strong Bulgarian results from my Y-DNA test, even though these were autosomal chromosones. I also had the Middle Eastern Panel done, which picked up a number of Jewish MLI scores, which were just below the threshold of the other tests. The largest of these Jewish scores was Non-Hasidic Jewish (New York City) (.84) 164. Since the Marmara, Turkey at the top of this panel had the same score as Native and Global, it scaled the same, so this Jewish score worked out to be 26% of the largest score, which was Bulgarian. This was tiny, but comparing the largest Jewish scores vs largest score of 78 European derived people on this list, I noted my percentage was three times the average. So this may explain the family rumors, and occasionally being mistaken for being Jewish, including by an individual who was Jewish himself!

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Expected Scots/Irish, Welsh, English, German, and Swiss with family origins in early Colonial Mass, Conn, New York, Penn and later Kentucky/Indiana on maternal side. Paternal origins in early Colonial Virginia and the Carolinas mostly from Scots/Irish, Welsh, English, and French. All of this from professional and family genealogists. Can trace descent from 1683 marriage of John Bass of Jamestown and Elizabeth of the Nansemond tribe. Took test to verify Native American ancestry from this marriage as well as to other Southeast coastal and inland Algonquian, Siouan, and/or Iroquoian tribes. From extensive study of descendants of Southern "tri-racial isolate" groups and Southeastern Indian tribes, found that some of these groups claimed ancestry from Turks, Portuguese, Gypsies, or Phonicians.

Comments: The biggest suprise was the Old Believers (ethnic Russian) ancestors who we believed were German. Native American was confirmed by high (for a NW European anglo)Mestizo scores along with Mixed Native American Minn scores,etc. Was not suprised to see Spanish, Moor, Jewish, Turk scores since many Southerners in "tri-racial isolate" groups have claimed ancestry from such groups. It appears that in the 1500's Spanish explorers (some of whom were Spanish Conversos, former Jews and Moors) sexually exploited a large number Native American women. The children who resulted may have better survived the waves of European diseases that left fatality rates of 50-90% among Native Americans. The other exotic additions such as the Gypsies may have been former indentured servants or slaves, ship wrecked sailors, or pirates (who were sheltered by the colony of South Carolina). OK, what do y'all think about that!

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My prior results from the 21 marker test were somewhat bizarre. The put my world region at Arabian which does not match any of the family history. My Y is I2a. Paper trail puts us in Europe. Father is mostly northwestern and eastern european, mother's paper trail is England and Denmark.

Comments: The 27 marker made all the difference in the world. My 21 marker results are below and quite bizarre. The 27 marker follow our paper trail on my father's side. I was somewhat surprised though by all the Eastern European results and some of the Roma (gypsy) that also came up. There were no matches to Denmark which is odd because my mother supposedly has a strong Danish heritage.

Comments: I was shocked at the results and my first reaction was that my test results must have been mixed with someone else's. But after doing some research of the Berber people in Morocco I realized the men there do look a lot like me. Very interesting results, I'm glad I took the test, and now plan on finding out what haplogroups I belong to.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Based on previous knowledge and traditional genealogical research, my ancestry traces back mostly to Scotland, England, France, Italy, Ireland, and Wales. Ancestry also includes some Native Americans of the Potomac and Potawomeck tribes although those tribes are not in the DNA Tribes database.

DNATribes Version Number: 21 marker Genetic Ancestry Analysis
Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: March 2010
Comments: Stunned at the large number of Eastern European top matches. 16 out of 20 of my top matches were Eastern European. This was a surprise as the only ancestors I have traced to Eastern Europe are two Russians who ended up in Orkney, Scotland. However, there are numerous genealogical “black holes” in my mother’s family tree (and a few in my father’s tree) where I have been unable to locate records. The matches in France and Italy were entirely expected and correspond to what I know from past genealogical research. I was initially surprised that no locations in the British Isles registered in my top 20, though, as my father’s family goes back hundreds of years in England and Scotland. (London, England was my #32 match, and Wales and Ireland were just below that.) Catalonia, Spain wasn’t much of a surprise, as the Welsh and other Celts inhabited the Iberian Peninsula, particularly the area along Northern Spain. Still surprised by the placement of Romania at the top although Romanians and Italians share some similar origins in the Roman Empire. (Rome conquered Dacia, which is present day Romania.) Regarding the Eastern European matches, Italy does indeed border Eastern Europe and, after doing some research I discovered that there were Slavic tribes that settled in Northern Italy around the 6th century A.D. Most of my Italian ancestors were, in fact, from Northern Italy, so it is quite possible that they also had some Eastern European and Germanic ancestry as Germanic tribes also invaded Northern Italy in 6th century. There seems to be a contradiction between DNA Tribes Analysis Parts B & C (the Native & Global Top Match Results) and Part D (World Region Match Results) as Part D has my Eastern European and Northwest European matches with nearly equal values even though there are no NW European matches in my Top 20 of Parts B & C. Incidentally, I also ran my STR CODIS Alleles through the European STR Database, and my highest matches were England/Wales, Ireland, Finland, Italy, N. Ireland (these first five matches were at nearly equal values), then Scotland, and Lille, France – this pretty much matches the paper trail. There seemed to be very little commonality between my DNA Tribes top matches and my ENFSI top matches. The only commonly between the two was Italy (and Finland which was in third place on my “World Region” match results as “Finnic”). It should be noted, however, that the DNA Tribes database contains far more population samples (and they use a few more DNA markers) than the European STR database, and the European database contains very few Eastern European populations. IF this DNA analysis is relaible, it seems to be more helpful in tracking the migration patterns of one’s ancestors than anything. Although initially surprising, considering boundary shifts, intermixing, invasions, and human migration, I can see how these results could be plausible, although I remain somewhat skeptical. Perhaps DNAT doesn’t yet use enough markers, or their algorithm is off. I plan to have the new 27-marker analysis done and am curious to see to what extent the 27-marker either confirms or refutes the 21-marker analysis. Any comments, ideas, or theories are welcome.

Comments: This is an update from December 12, 2009. I've since gotten my results back from 23andme, and my mtdna haplogroup is consistent with the autosomal results from DNAT. My highest population match is from Basque according to DNAT, and my mtdna haplogroup as determined by 23andme is V. This is not a very common haplogroup, and is highest among "fringe" populations in Europe, like Basques and the Saami people of Scandinavia. After trying both of these tests, I think they complement each other, but DNAT gives more detailed ancestry match information and is less expensive. If you're from a Western European or well-studied background (like Basque), you'll do well with DNAT, but if you're not, you might want to wait for their databases to become more comprehensive.

Comments: Confused now but studying more. There is no Cherokee or Melungeon population in the DNATribes database and I suspect I'd match up high on either or both. This result is clearly indicative of African-American though and I've never been ascribed to that ethnicity. Could really use a "professional" interpreter of these results.

Comments: I was not too suprised with the results both my parents have recent german ancestry which borders eastern Europe and I had been a slavophile since I was a child so I half expected the results.I was suprised to have no asian or african results, but I knew the test was only looking at a very tiny handful of markers and could not be said to be representive of a person's whole ancestry.I assume the few STRS they picked up just happened to be the european ones. STRs are also taken from non coding dna regions. I've since had 1/2 a million markers analysed by both 23andme and decodeme my results there did pick up my asian and african ancestry along with northern european, my top result on decodeme was Russia and the Uygurs on 23andme East Asia and Northern Europe.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): The main reason for this test was to prove or disprove Native American and to see if we came from England. My uncle took this test because his father may have had 1/8 Native American from his mother. My uncle's Mother's side has been traced back to Poland/Austria and on my Uncle's Father's side the rumor is we came from England (I have traced back to late 1700's in New England,USA).

Comments: I wasn't surprised to hear no Native American (although it can't be ruled out if less than 1/4), but the results I received were nothing of what I expected. I certainly expected European and Poland/Austria. Maybe, I do not understand the results at all, but when I look at them I see African American quite high. Is this correct? Everyone in the family on both sides are Caucasian can these results even be possible? I feel like I am reading someone else's results. Does anyone see anything that relates to what I have traced back? How about Native American? Arctic or Mestizo? What do I do from here? All of my Scores are quite low. What does this mean?

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I knew my background was Irish, Welsh, English, German, and possibly Native American (Potawatomi) and Jewish. I also learned recently that I have a fair amount of French Canadian and French ancestry from doing family tree research. I was expecting primarily Irish, Welsh, and English results. I ordered the extended results because I have such a mixed background and some "unknown" factors on my dad's side of the family.

Comments: After my initial surprise about Basque in particular, I decided that the results made great historical sense. I did some research into the early migratory flow across the Mediterranean and up to Southern France and the U.K., and my results actually seem pretty accurate given my more recent (dark) Irish and French Canadian ancestors. The results also validated the variety of other European backgrounds my other recent ancestors had, and confirmed my suspicions about my gmother's German and Jewish background. I was a little sad about not being at all Native American, but maybe Potawatomi's are not yet represented in the database. I'll certainly have a reanalysis done in the future - it was a lot of fun, and very educational.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): With an Irish name I thought sure I'd get an Irish or at least Scots return. I was completely surprised at the results although there were rumors in my mother's family of Portugese ancestry. I never would have imagined my strongest hit would be Sardinian. I looked around the web for pictures of people in Sardinia and have to admit I do look something like them. I have no idea about the Pakistan part, I assume this must be some kind of Indo-European connection.

Comments: I suppose that I expected to find some connection to a German heritage, or even a Roma Gypsy match, and was pretty shocked to find Upper (Southern) Egypt as a very strong match, with Oman (honestly did not know anything about this country) as a 2nd strong match, and Afghanistan as a 3rd. Nothing in my "top 10" matches even suggest anything about European ancestry and leads me to believe that I am of Arabic descent. I compared my sample to many other samples on the TRIBE site and other DNA sites and could not find similarities to one particular ethnic group, however; I would like to compare with a middle eastern or arabic person's DNA, or any other ethnic group (Oman) that I might even closely resemble (none were posted). I have very dark brown eyes and dark hair with light olive skin. My daughter was born with dark brown eyes and olive skin. I read somewhere that Caucasian infants were born with blue/grey eyes and I had always wondered if there was any truth to that, as my son was born with blue/grey eyes and has ash blonde hair. I try not to get hung up on the stereo types, but I have always felt that I would discover some type of unusual history. So many people tell me I look either Italian, Hispanic, Gypsy, Native American, Lebanese, Greek, or Jewish. I would love to hear from anyone who may have comparable information that would help me get a better understanding of my DNA results. My husband suggested that the lab mixed up the test results, but I bet they are accurate.

Comments: The high scores for Turkish and other Med. areas help explain my Polish father's olive complexion. I was surprized that there wasn't more in the North European areas, since my documented genealogy goes back to England in 1600's and Ireland in 1800's. I have one ancestor born in Spain ca 1790, but the measure for Basque seems way higher than that can explain. Maybe I have it on both sides? It's strange there is zero American Indian when I know her name and my grandma even had Indian shaped teeth. I don't understand how I can have a hit on a Mestizo population but no hit on any N. American Indians.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): This is an upgrade to the original 15-marker test. My results from that test are listed several entries below. After getting those results, I had my mom and my brother tested. My mother's results mirrored mine almost identically with us both having the strongest results come from Afghanistan and Turkey. My brother's results were a little different with his taking after our dad's side of the family. However, his highest result also came from Western/Central Asia. I had this 21-marker test performed to hopefully gain some more understanding and clarity after having the three of us tested.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Strongest: Afghanistan 18,028.90. Middle: Transylvania 13,075.39; Estonia 12,885.61; Portugal 12,447.22; Austria 12,380.14; Sweden 11,471.09; Central Portugal 11,466.71 Bucharest Romania 10,190.24; Toscana, Italy 9,079.16
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Strongest: Afghanistan 18,028.90; European-Aboriginal (mixed) SE Australia 15,339.93 Middle: European-Aboriginal mixed, Riverine Region, Australia 13,766.31; European-Aboriginal mixed, New South Wales, Australia 13,398.21; Transylvania, Romania 13,075.39; Estonia 12,885.61; Portugal 12,447.22

Comments: This quote from the DNA Tribes website has helped me a lot: "Genealogy cannot identify the specific genetic connections passed down by these ancestors. This is because genealogy deals with only the means of DNA transmission and not with the substance itself. The autosomal genetic analysis offered by DNA Tribes can complement genealogical research by identifying your genetic connections to living populations passed down by your historical ancestors." Yes, my ancestors were from France but their DNA was from elsewhere, specifically the Middle Eastern region. I can see how some people might be skeptical at first when their results don't reflect their genealogical paper trail. This happened with me but since I never quite looked like what my paper trail was telling me, I had no problem believing my DNA results. If you were to drop my mom, my brother, and I off in the middle of Afghanistan, you would have no clue that we didn't belong there, especially my mom since she has darker skin than my brother and I. Even though I believed these original results, I still wanted more clarity. After having all 3 of us tested and seeing the similarities in our results and now after seeing my 21-marker upgrade results, there is no doubt in my mind as to the accuracy of this test. If anyone wishes to discuss anything regarding this test, please feel free to contact me.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am a female, 29 yrs old. I was born and raised most my life in Iran/Tehran. I know that my mom's family had some Russians in them, had migrated to Iran from the caucuses and potentially further north. They ALL look Russian/Slavic. My maternal side mostly has Blue/Gray eyes and they actually have NO facial resemblance to Persians. The village they settled in( in northwest Iran) has a Finish/Polish name and that was always a surprise to my Mother's family. My father side comes originally from Eastern Iran. They resemble typical Persian/Mediterranean people. Anyways, I was expecting lots of Persian, Mediterranean, Greek, Arabian, and even Asian ( mongols) in me.

Comments: To be honest, if I I had not studied Genetics myself, I would have doubted accuracy of these results or our entire understating of what it means to be EUROPEAN VS. MIDDLE EASTERN. But science stands above all truth for me & I am very familiar with human migration and interbreeding between different populations that definitely can be traced through our genes. I think my results are such a mix due to my Mom's unique non-Persian ancestry and perhaps most other Persians do not share my results. But again. I hope more people from my area of the world participate so we could get a more clear picture. I am still thinking about having my Mom tested and also, I may try some other testing services in the future.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I had previously completed the 15 marker test. My results are posted previously in this log. I am updating the results for my 21 marker. I was unsure originally about my global matches showing Brazil almost across the board but did not previously reflect Spain/Portugal specifically...which seemed to me the logical origins for any diaspora in Brazil. So...that is what I really wanted to see.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: None of my matches are indicated as strong. my dots are blue and pink (low and lowest) And yet the score values are much higher than my original 15 marker test 1. Lille France, 240.93 2. Portugal 177.45 3. Xuetes Majorca Spain 173.38 4, Basque Spain 173.14 5. Kuwait 162.14 6, Upper Southern Egypt 160.91 7. Turkey 158.94 8. Catalonia Spain 150.33 9. Murcia Spain 144.58 10 Western Poland 136.79
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Only #1 is strongest the rest are middle to low 1. Rio de Janeiro Brazil 685.63 2.

Comments: The 21 marker test did show the Portuguese and Spanish matches I had expected that did not show in the 15 marker. These results make alot more sense historically now. Now...the difficulty is figuring out if my ancestors in my paper genealogy trail which points to almost all Northern Europeans in colonial America....if they were actually not so Northern European or...if these genetics are being carried over from much earlier (ottoman empire, spice trade, even the neolithic period). Almost all my ancestors were in the US by 1720. Any feedback or thoughts are welcome.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am female, generally describe myself as a caucasian North American. Family tree contains 6000 ancestors going back to 1500s. Primary paternal ancestry is Welsh/French and German/Czech all back to 1600s. Primary maternal ancestry is English to 1600s/Prussian to 1600s/Austrian to 1600s/Swiss to 1800s. Two reported Native American ancestors. Fathers family had said they were "Black Irish" before research. At the time I first heard this I did not know what it meant. Individuals on this line of the family have a tendancy to be ruddy to olive complected, dark hair and an intense capacity to tan. My grandmother stated that my grandfather who was out in the sun all day for his work was so dark in the 1940s that they were refused service at restaurants. This trait has passed to many of the grandchildren. I am not sure how they came to believe they were Irish because paper trail and YDNA and mTDNA seem to confirm Welsh.

Comments: First I should say that I have been very pleased with the service, they were prompt and responsive to questions...much more than other companies. Still they could all make alot more money if they provided more indepth explanations to help with interpretation. As to my results I was somewhat surprised. I knew from my brother's YDNA testing (he is R1B1b2) and my MtDNA testing (I'm H) to expect to see the Iberian influence, but I totally did not expect that Arabic would lead and that there was so much African. My Northwest European score is so low that I guess I have trouble calling myself "caucasian" as it says on their site that less than 5% of "caucasian North Americans" score below 1.9 and mine is 2.4. That is something very new to consider and would astound most folks if you looked at me/my family. I'm light ruddy to olive complected, green eyes and auburn hair. I would be interested in corresponding with anyone with similar results.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am a female, XX. My father's parents were from Poland, and all thought my father, born in America, was 100% Polish. My mother was thought to be Scottish, German, PADutch (Switzerland-maybe). She called herself a Heinz57 variety. I have also done my father's last brother's (my uncles's) DNA, same 21 marker test, to see the Allele-2 as the Y entry. Since I am female I get my father's X from his mother, and my mother's X alleles, only, on my 21 markers test, no Y: see AMEL under locus of STR profile, the X is for the female genetics. When a female does this STR you only get the two X's. I wanted to see what my father's Y might reveal so, thus, I used my uncle's DNA, since my father has died. This should come close to revealing a good genetic history. I am separately, via another company, waiting on my specific mtDNA. Father rumors: a Mongolian pass, a Hun. Mother rumors: related to the Viscount of Dundee, Scotland.

Comments: I was amazed to find out that my father's people were only culturally Polish and not genetically so. But I am very pleased to see this truth. They always said they were from small villages with no records or destroyed in wars. If I didn't see the Scotland tucked in the results of the test for my mother, I would have thought the test was wrong, but it's not. My uncle's test shown on his Y-alleles, which I haven't recorded here, that my father's father was genetically Italian and his ancestors were likely to be found in Brazil today. Yes, that's right. Brazil has the largest population of Italians after Italy. That Italian was a surprise. The challenge is to actually formulate where my mother's alleles stand out on the readings/test. The X's seems to be strongly representitive in my tests of my father's mother's who looked like a Turk/Greek/Arab/Jordanian/Israeli-Jewish all rolled into one beautiful package. This was a thrilling adventure and I liked what I found out via dnatribes.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My mother was born in Sicily, my father's father was born in southern Italy ( Abruzzo ) and my father's mother was born in northern Italy ( Belluna ). My cousin went to see cousins in Sicily in 1990 and was told Sicilians have more Greek and Arab blood in them, and are not as Italian as the mainland Italians. My mother also said her great-grandfather came from France and said many Italians have Jewish blood because of the Romans. My father said he was pretty sure he had some Austrian blood in him. When a friend of mine visited Italy, the tour guide told him most people south of Rome have some Africa blood.

Comments: I was very happy with the results and not surprised at all. After my cousin told me that our cousins in Sicily said we were more Greek and Arab, and the tour guide telling my friend most people south of Rome have African blood in them, it makes a lot of sense. My mother also said that during Roman times, the Jewish people and Roman people may have intermarried at some point. Although I am very light skinned, with green eyes and brown wavy hair, I have meet many Greeks who are very light and have meet many Arabs who have light eyes. I am very proud of who I am. Because my last name is so Native American sounding ( my husband is full blood Lakota) I was wondering if DNA Tribes would gather I was American Indian was well and "make up" something, but they were right on the money I think. My first test, the 15 markers showed my highest score was in Karamojo,Uganda but that did not show up this time. I did a little research on the Karamojong people, and think I would have fit right in as the other ethnic groups in Uganda say the Karamojong are "troublemakers". I feel kind of crestfallen that Karamojo is not listed in my profile with the 21 marker kit.*chuckles* All in all, I am very pleased and would like to order one of the add on testing kits, but not sure which one it should be. Should I do Europa or Africa? I do not believe there is one out for the Middle East.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Father born in Italy (southerly Italy -- Molise region); Mother born in America, along with her parents, AND her parents' parents. Prior to that, all we knew was their people had been mixed between a couple of eastern European populations (but we did not ever know exactly where). My Y DNA haplogroup is T; mt is K.

Comments: Altogether I'm not terribly surprised. Very interesting test! In my opinion, I feel my primary best World Region Match result as "Mestizo" with the emphasis in Latin America actually makes sense because the people there are mostly highly "mixed" (as the term implies) between Latin European (Spain, Port., Italy, etc), and Native American (which has a Eurasian or Asiatic influence from their distant past). So, I personally feel the result makes sense due to my paternal origins in a part of Latin Europe (Italy), my paternal DNA could probably just as easily be a Spaniard or Portuguese. While on my maternal side, they are apparently picking up a distant ancestral connection with far northeastern (and/or far southeastern) Europe/Eurasia , which may well give it a kind of distantly "Asiatic" tint.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My mother is mostly French Canadian with a little Miqmak Native American. My dad has mostly British Isles ancestry with a little French and German as far as I know. My mom is the darkest of her family and I look very similar to her. I've had people say I look Hispanic or even Asian so I wanted to do this test to confirm my ancestry.

Comments: These results had me speechless. I'm very surprised there were no French or French Canadian results. Given the way my mom and I look though, these results make perfect sense. I don't know if my French ancestors had a strong Middle Eastern background or if I have Middle Eastern ancestors that I'm not aware of. I'm very glad I did this test. Even though I don't know exactly how I ended up with these genes, at least I know where they originated.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am of Southern Chinese ancestry (1/2 Taishanese, 1/4 Shanghainese and 1/4 Macau Chinese) but my siblings and I have often been mistaken as Eurasians. There is a very real possibility of admixture on my father's side as my great-grandfather had some distinctly European facial features (e.g. deep-set eyes, an aquiline nose and a full mustache). Unfortunately the paper trail stops there as I know next to nothing about his parents. A few months ago, I took a DNA test with another company which revealed a surprising similarity with native Iberian populations (Basques and Majorcan Spanish), so I decided to try DNA tribes to see if the same results would come up.

Comments: The results came as a big shock as I have no recorded family ties to the Malay region. I was especially surprised at the strong genetic similarity to the peoples of East Timor and the various indigenous tribes of Northern Borneo (Sarawak). My actual background of Chinese (Hong Kong) only came up at #8 on the native match and #13 on the global match. Unlike the previous DNA test I took, there were no European or Indian matches within the top 20. However "European-Aboriginal (mixed)" repeatedly came up in my extended results. The strong matches to East Timor also raised an interesting question: given that the Portuguese had a presence on the island for over 400 years, was the native gene pool influenced by European settlement and colonisation?

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Very solid traditional genealogy has almost all of mother's side traced to British Isles (there is one Swiss line way back and a few others not proven British Isles but surnames are such). Mother about 1/2 Cornish -- this traced very solidly, some lines to 1600 and 1500's, all to 1700 and 1800's. Some Norman surnames as well. Besides Cornwall her ancestors from Devon, London, and Nottinghamshire -- all based on solid genealogy records. Another line possibly from East Riding Yorkshire but not proven. Father known German and Irish ancestry by traditional genealogy; possibility of some Scots-Irish by oral tradition as well as a question of Ashkenazi Jew (one line from Germany tracing back to 1600's all Jewish surnames). Was expecting British Isles in results and Celtic with the known Cornish on mother's side and known Irish and possible Scots-Irish on Father's. Also German and possibly Ashkenazi.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Podlasie, Northeast Poland 306.93, Szekler (Romania)170.44, Belarus 131.42, Ivanovu, Belarus 128.77, Presov, Eastern Slovakia 117.43, Czech Republic 111.82, Belarus 104.05, Slovenia 95.82, Norway 86.96, Belgium 79.99, Denmark 79.77, Norway 75.87, Norway 75.05, Sweden 71.57, Germany 67.82, Germany 67.82, Belarus 64.42, Southeast Poland 64.10, Flemish 63.20, Austria 63.09.

Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: March 2009
Comments: At first was highly surprised and actually disappointed. Flys in the face of most of my expectations. Especially upset to see nothing from the British Isles or Ireland show up, as exstensive evidence based genealogy has about half my ancestors to there. My matrilineal line to west Cornwall 1700's, and my mtDNA is K2b which has been called "Celtic". Almost all of my mtDNA high resolution matches are in Ireland or the UK. Perhaps the Norway, Belgium, Denmark can be considered here as English? Though expected to see some Celtic not just Anglo DNA, and these (Norway, Belgium, Denmark) weren't that high on the list anyway. Could it be that not enough DNA from UK/ Ireland in database or that Cornwall not at all represented? Or that I'm just an odd mixture? Don't really understand this DNA Tribes test and need to speak to them about my results. Almost everything on my native poulation was eastern European and I have no such known (with the exception of the line with Jewish surnames, one in this line way back to Czech). But perhaps my Dad's German lines originated in Eastern Europe? But how can that be everything for me? Not much from my mom shows up, or my Dad's Irish/ Scots-Irish?? Doesn't make sense. My Dad has the one line with all the Jewish surnames, and his patrilineal line which is another line is possibly Ashkenazi -- his Y-DNA is E1b1b1 and so far his closest matches are eastern European Jews (FTDNA is running one more test to confirm it but so far looks Ashkenazi according to them). So here is an eastern European connection for sure but my Ashkenazi score was very low. Could my eastern European score really be due to Ashkenazi without scoring high on Ashkenazi? One more thing -- I entered my alleles into the European Network of Forensic Science (ENFSI DNA WG - STR Population Database) calculation form and my results correlated very well with my original expectations. My highest matches were(in order of highest actual matching probability): England/ Wales, Ireland, Germany, France/ Toulouse, Finland, Scotland/ Glasgow, North Ireland, Czech Republic, Estonia, Austria. I think there must be something to glean from the DNA Tribes results but not quite sure about it and think something might be off. I have the mtDNA, Y-DNA, solid genealogy and now this European Forensic database info that seem to say differently. For now I'm taking the Tribe results with a grain of salt. Maybe it's not perfected enough yet?

Comments: Dna Tribes is a test that causes controversy. With the examination of 21 markers some results are feasible. Other strangers. Especially those that concern the Middle East, North Africa and northern Europe (for barbarian people as english, Flemish and Scottish). The markers like sao paulo (city), also does not help much (my grandmother is from there, daughter of Spanish (Barcelona) mother (1897-1990) and Argentine (Santa Fé) father(1892-1966)(son of italians)). The city from Sao Paulo, Brazil, has a populatin about: 19,223,897. Is a large number of people who came from around the world.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): 3rd Generation Italian American. My father was 50% Northern Italian and 50% Castilian Spanish, my mother was 100% Southern Italian (Calabrese). Our family tree on my mother's side goes back to the late 1600s, all of our ancestors on her side having lived in Catanzaro, Calabria. No family tree for my father's side, just a bunch of tight-lipped relatives that do their best to tell us next to nothing. I was expecting to see some strong hits for Southern Italy and possibly some from Spain. I also had been mistaken for being Jewish (by Jewish people!) a few times, but had no ancestry that I knew of. Parents both deceased so that added more mystery.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: No Strongest or Strong results, the following are all Middle: Toscana Italy (0.67)784, Emilia-Romagna Italy (0.65)742 , Macedonian (0.75)741, Marche Italy (0.65)626, Albanian (Kosovo, Albania) (0.68)576, Veneto Italy (0.61)560, Istanbul Turkey (0.67)505

Comments: Test results were very interesting. My Italian ancestry was proven without a doubt, but the Spanish part did not show up at all. There were also many other Middle range hits for Israel and Turkey that I didn't list above, as well as the strongest Levantine hit that made my siblings and I do some more family research. Sure enough, we found a family tree from my father's side that had a few Hebrew names, shedding a little light on this mystery. As well, we also found some pictures of our "Spanish" ancestors that looked very Arabic/Middle Eastern, so to the best of knowledge we figure they were Sephardic Jews. This would explain random Jewish people coming up and giving me hugs (mainly when I had a long, dark and fuzzy beard that they said "proved I was a Jew!"). Unfortunately most of our surviving relatives still won't confirm this, but we've learned quite a bit from their silence. I'm still surprised that I didn't have any hits for Catanzaro as that DNA is in the database, but my Europa test corroborated the results of this test very well. I'm still a bit confused that one of my few "Strongest" hits connected with Puerto Ricans from Massachusetts, perhaps it simply demonstrates a similar mixed ancestry? Then again I used to be an avid Salsa dancer so who really knows! All in all, well worth the money! =)

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My mother is half scotish and half sloveian. Her Scotish ancestry has been traced to the 1400's her father moved here in 1910. Her mother was 1st generation american from Solvenia. My dad's side was a bit of a mystery, knowing only that his grandmother (maternal) was french canadian and married someone thought to be American Indian. 100% unknown for his father's (my grandfather's) side of the family.

Comments: I am very suprized by the results. My mother did say she wasn't sure how long her family had lived in Slovenia before coming to the USA in 1902. It looks like they probably were more Romanian and Italian though then she thought. Her Scotish side doesnt show up at all. I guess my dad's oral history about his grandmother being French Canadian was true :) He thinks maybe now, when they said Indian...that it was not Native American, but from India. Which with these results makes more sense. I did do the additional Native American tests and turned up 0.00 across the board. All I can say is WOW.

Comments: My fair skinned blue eyed self and family were a bit 'surprised' at the results. Have traced most of our ancestors back to Britain(1300's--through 2 Grandmothers) and The Netherlands(through Maternal Grandfather). Admittedly have only traced my Paternal Grandfather's ancestors back to 1700's Appalachia, but even IF his ancestors were "AEGEAN" does that discount all of the rest of my extreme British roots? What's surprising is that no Northwestern European Nation came up AT ALL even in the low native population results. This makes me look completely Aegean/Mediterranean. Very VERY confused and highly doubtful now of validity. I don't have a website but would very much appreciate input or advice. How can I get responses without providing an email?

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Ashkenazi Jewish (Orthodox) on both father’s and mother’s side, originally from the region of Eastern Europe that is today Poland and the Ukraine. Family tree dates back to around the late 1700's at least. Believed to have some Sephardic ancestors and expected some Sephardic autosomal results. Part of the family also has the tradition of being from the Tribe of Levi/Levite. YDNA haplogroups in the family include: R1b, E1b1b1, R1a1, G.

DNATribes Version Number: DNA Tribes 21 STR Premium Analysis
Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: 14 April 2008 result
Comments: Ashkenazi Jewish was expected, but Ashkenazi (Budapest, Hungary), the highest Ashkenazi result, ranked only at #14 from all tribal populations. This percentile rank of (0.22) suggests a below normative score for this sample population (normative: 0.25 to 0.75 percentile rank). But some Sephardic results were expected, and along with the Ashkenazi and Levite branches of the family, genetic artifacts that could otherwise be linked to the ancient Israelites. DNA Tribes commented that, “Because reference samples for Mizrahi and Sephardi Jewish populations presently available in our database are small, Mizrahi or Sephardi Jewish ancestry is most robustly expressed in match scores for the Levantine genetic region. This Levantine region, which includes the Land of Israel, characterizes all available Jewish populations for which data are available. Ashkenazi populations retain a primary link to this Levantine region, but also include private genetic characteristics specific to Jewish communities historically living in Central and Eastern Europe” (DNA Tribes, Lucas Martin: email 30 Oct 2008). The Levantine world region is the strongest region for these results among the available World Regions at DNA Tribes. DNA Tribe analysis for only Jewish and Middle Eastern populations showed the following Top 10 population matches ranked in order: 1. Arab (Israel); 2. Jewish (Israel); 3. Israel; 4. Syria; 5. Egypt; 6. Jewish (Israel); 7. Ashkenazi (Budapest, Hungary); 8. Oman; 9. Northern Arab; 10. Jordan. All these populations are in the Top 20 results. Arab (Israel) is the strongest Levantine DNA tribe among these results, ranked #2 from all global populations, with the majority of the top 20 matches located in the Levant or the Eastern Mediterranean Region. The genetic similarity to the Levantine region supports the expected Sephardic heritage, and also a reasonable link to genetic artifacts of the ancient Israelites, as remarkable as that seems.

Comments: Ashkenazi Jewish was expected and Ashkenazi Jewish was the result. DNA Tribes states that normal scores for a person within a population will be within 0.25 to 0.75 percentile rank. The percentile rank received here for Ashkenazi Budapest was (0.83) suggests a strong link to the Ashkenazi community, but a score that is higher than the expected for members of the Ashkenazi Budapest community. Again, as expected for Ashkenazi Lithuania. Extended match analysis for only Jewish and Middle Eastern populations showed the following Top 10 population matches ranked in order: 1. Ashkenazi Budapest; 2. Jewish (Israel); 3. Jewish (Israel); 4. Non-Hasidic Jewish (New York City); 5. Israel; 6. Arab Israel; 7. Egypt; 8. Kurdish (Iraq); 9. Kurdish (Northern Iraq); 10. Ashkenazi (Israel). This test was done before the DNA Tribes database was restructured to include the Levantine region (Israel, Palestinian Territories, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon) as a World Region match possibility. Perhaps, this result will be updated in the near future to compare data against the Levantine world region.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I previously ordered DNA Tribes Personal Genetic Analysis. So, this latest order is just an update. I've requested updates on several occassions since they add more population samples. I wanted to see if my results would change as a result. I am Taiwanese-American (Chinese ancestry from Southern Fujian province of China with likely admixture with Austronesian western plains aborigines of Taiwan). In the past, my results matched me with the Vietnamese, Yi (Southern China), Bangladeshi. While regionally, I've had matches in Asia (no surprise: Japan, North China, Southeast Asia, Southern China; up also substantial matches with India-(Eastern, Northern and Southern), North Africa. I've also taken DNA Print test which resulted in 85% East Asian, 3% Native American (which I believe is part of the 5% margin of error and should be considered East Asian) and 12% Indo European. I am more concerned about the World Region Match which gives a bigger overall picture.

Comments: The Native and Global matches are no surprises- these are my genetic ancestors or genetic cousins (people I may have shared ancestry with). I've also seen my Extended Matches which is beyond the top 20 matches. The World Region match is quite interesting. The Asia region matches are no surprise. I am just curious about the North African, Mesopotamian (I am wondering if that has anything to do with possible Arab/Persian ancestry). There were said to be sizable amounts of Arabs and Persian traders to live along the port cities of Southeast China including in Fujian province of China where my Chinese ancestry is from. Many of them intermarried with local Chinese women. Later on, many of their descendants gave up Islam and adopted Chinese names and customs. I know it is not surprisely that East Asians may have matches with India (since I believe the ancestors of East Asian migrated from East Africa to the Middle East through India into Southeast Asia then into China). Anybody with any insights?

Comments: I am stunned by these results mainly due to the apparent popularity of my particular alleles among all of the places where Caucasians have spread in this world. My extended results keep on going with some notable ones being East Indian (Canada) 245 (71) as my185 place extended result, Indian (Singapore) 239 (76) as my 189 place-these are probably a result of the Aryan conquest of NW India circa 1500 bc. I am currently doing my ydna test. The extended results cover 99% of euro or euro- mixed populations of the modern world with over 300 mli scores of over 30, yet there are no significant similarities with African tribes at all or Asian ones, yet high similarities to the euro-abo-mixed Australians. I must be of a really old haplogroup that was among the first to repopulate europe after the last ice age. This makes perfect sense due to the fact that Banat-Transylvania region was probably the most important ice age refuge in europe that represents the most northern extent of mediterranean-influenced weather. Also The carpathian mountains blocked the glaciers from advancing further south. It is notable that I share more similarities with 60 modern population groups than I do with the current mix of people from where I was born (Bucharest) Includinc people from every continent in my top 20.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): This is an upddated and corrected report received in July. I had already posted an earlier report here. My ancestry comes mainly from two sources: Spanish from the Canary Islands and French from southern France. I was born in Cuba and so were all of my grandparents. My great-grandparents came from the Canary Islands and the southern region of France.

Comments: I am satisfied with my results. I have no known Arabic or Mesopotamian or Turkish ancestries, but I am sure that is coming from Andalucia and Portugal and the people who settled in the Canaries, plus the natives who lived there and/or from ancient migrations into Europe. Sometimes we think we know a lot about ourselves, when we really still have a lot to learn/discover. I have neither the money nor the time for deep genealogical reasearch or family trees, so I decided to give DNA Tribes a chance. I know the identity of all of my great-great grandparents, but I have not gone further than that. They originated in La Palma, La Gomera and Tenerife, in the Canary Islands and others in southern France, not too far from the Spanish border.

Comments: See results posted previously. These results fit long term family genealogical and oral history. Family is from northwest foothills and mountains of South Carolina. History records a connection between Madagascar's rice and slave trade and the early coastal colonial plantation society. The Cherokee sometimes adopted slaves into their villages along with Europeans and other Indians. Also from an Extended Match Report ordered at the same time, there is entry #31 "African-American (South Carolina, U.S.A.) (0.32) 427.59". The lack of Cherokee DNA profiles probably accounts for the European-Indian-African mixed matches from Brazil.

I have cousins who have a dark complexion so i was surious about an Native American influence. my brother had traced our ancestry back about five generations and forward from England but there was a gray area of 1 or 2 generations that could not be proven or connected.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My family tree has an all European past; "100% Polish" father. And via my Alexander mother: Mainly Scots-Irish & German and lesser English & Belgian.

Comments: I was pleasantly surprised how my late Polish father dominated my scores. And Brazil was a complete surprise, probably from my adopted Grandma! (My uncle is undergoing an M-tDNA test now.) I am puzzled by the high Norway & Iceland hits. I have only one Norwegian (Lein) on my tree, way back in 1600. And my maternal uncle just tested NW Ireland R1b1b2e M222 (Niall Modal). Yet, Norway & Iceland are high up my tree. And Ireland doesn't appear until #33. So, all seems normal, other than the strong unknown Viking versus known Irish.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Results expected were Hungarian-Jewish with some Sephardic Jewish and possibly Mizrachi Jewish and ethnic Hungarian. Our family is recently (last 200 years) 100% from Hungary. Genealogical research indicates that of the approximate 41 end-branches of our family tree almost all appear with no religion indicated...some continue as such for many generations, many appear with no place of birth, etc. Family traditions include Izraelite (non-religious Jewish), Nobility (2 paternal grandfather lineages), "not Hungarian", and immigrants from Transylvania. YDNA = E1b1b1a; no matches at 0,1,2,3, etc. mtDNA = H5a; no matches until distance of 2 mutations. Other haplogroups among grandparent/great-grandparent lineages. YDNA: R1a1 (Levi-Sephardic), G2 (Izraelite). mtDNA: K2a (Ashkenazi-Sephardic), T* (Jewish, Celtic, and French Canadian matches).

Comments: We did expect to see the Sephardic and Mizrahci tribes appear in our Top results as we believe several of our lineages are from Spain and there is a tradition of Mizrachi Jews settling in the home town of my paternal family. I'm guessing post-Inquisition migration to Northern Italy and Istanbul/Turkey are going to be the Sephardic mutations that match us in the DNA Tribes results. A group of researchers believe that Israeli Arabs are the closest genetically to the indigenous population of ancient Israel. Family tree research did indicate that our family immigrated to Hungary during the later 1700s and 1800s from Moravia and other places unspecified. Based on surnames and traditions with these autosomal results (and the 15 STR test results) we believe it suggests migration from Spain, Poland, and Transylvania. Skin and blood cells were used to get these results. This was the second time I tested and provided a new DNA sample. Both results show identical STRs at 15 loci and identical strongest match for Native and Global population match (Veneto, Italy), second test was 21 STR upgrade and included 6 additional STR loci.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): On my father's side surname is German; genealogy records also show England, Scotland, Switzerland,France, Ireland etc. Through his side the records (if accurate of course) show that we have some lines that tie in with English royalty into France. Also a line that goes through William the Conqueror. Also have some Jewish surnames in German line and he ties in with the Mayflower group through his mother. My mother's genealogy records are mostly Danish (her mother was born in Denmark) with some from England. Both parents have had DNA Tribes testing. Father is Northwestern European on world region followed by Arabian, North India, Mediteranean. My mother's analysis is not one that is frequently seen, her world region scores were Eastern India, North Africa, Levantine,etc., hardly any European matches at all. I did not know what to expect for my matches other than I expected some strong European matches given family history records and that I have red hair.

Comments: I am somewhat blown away that I seem to have very little DNA common to European populations. Apparently, I inherited some of my mother's DNA that is not all that common in European populations; my DNA is less common in Europe but more common in the Near East and India. It was explained to me by Lucas at DNA Tribes that my MLI scores reflect maternal genetic material present at low frequencies in Europe and more common to populations in the Near East and India.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): As an adoptee, I really had no idea what to expect. I'm 42 years old, and only learned a bit about my biological family a couple years ago (although I've always known I was adopted). I even met a cousin, who looks very much like me, and my sister, who was also adopted. Our mother had four kids; the eldest two grew up with her, while we were placed for adoption, I assume due to her financial situation, plus the fact that we were born out of wedlock (she was separated from her husband). I had thought that probably there was a considerable amount of northwestern European in me, as well as perhaps a few surprises. In any case, I had no preconceived ideas of what to expect, and went into this with a completely open mind.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: I had no "strong" or "strongest" matches. Everything was in the "low" to "lowest" category, which I assume implies that I have "well-mixed" genes. Here are my top 20 results: Finland 13.32, Serbia and Montenegro 11.97, Pakistan 10.37, Finland 8.78, Serbia 7.17, Podlasie, Northeast Poland 7.15, Budapest, Hungary 6.98, Pomerania-Kujawy, Northern Poland 6.64, Finland 6.23, Poland 5.54, Slovenia 5.53, Turkey 5.52, Slovenia 5.42, Norway 5.39, Italy 5.31, United Arab Emirates 5.25, Lodz, Poland 5.15, Netherlands 5.08, Szekler (Romania) 5.05, Lodz, Poland 4.93.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: I had one "strongest" in this category; everything else was "middle" or lower. The results: European-Aboriginal (mixed) (Western Australia) 27.31, Pakistani (United Arab Emirates) 15.82, Finland 13.32, Serbia and Montenegro 11.97, European-Aboriginal (mixed) (Western Australia) 11.06, Pakistan 10.37, Indian (Malaysia) 9.60, Finland 8.78, Caucasian 8.73, European-Aboriginal (mixed) (Northern Territory, Australia) 7.39, Serbia 7.17, European-Aboriginal (mixed) (New South Wales, Australia) 7.17, Podlasie, Northeast Poland 7.15, Budapest, Hungary 6.98, Pomerania-Kujawy, Northern Poland 6.64, South Asian (United Kingdom) 6.60, Caucasian (New South Wales, Australia) 6.25, Finland 6.23, European-Aboriginal (mixed) (Riverine Region, Australia) 6.09, Caucasian (Northern Territory, Australia) 5.91.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - World Region Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Finno-Ugrian 11.03, North India 6.66, Arabian 4.05, Eastern European 3.99, Northwest European 3.93, Mediterranean 2.85, Eastern India 2.77, Aegean 2.28, Levantine 2.06, South India 1.85, Mesopotamian 1.54, Australia 0.97, North African 0.46, Mestizo 0.28, Malay Archipelago 0.08, Altaian 0.01, East African 0.01, Southeast Asian 0.01. All the following are also listed on the report with an MLI value of 0.00: Tibetan, South Chinese, Japanese, West African, North Chinese, Andean, Arctic, Mexican, Southern African, Mayan, Salishan, Central American, Polynesian, North Amerindian, Patagonian, Athabaskan, Ojibwa, Amazonian.

Comments: To be honest, I'm not really surprised about anything on the report, although I had assumed that there would be more German, English, Irish, and French (and apparently there's just about everything else but!). But it seems like the predominant influences are Finnish, Pakistani, and various flavors of Slavic (Serbia, Poland). The "Budapest, Hungary" is not surprising either, as these fit with the strongly Finno-Ugric profile that this report draws. I realize that physical characteristics are fairly meaningless, but for the record, I have blond hair and blue eyes, and would certainly not look out of place in Finland. My skin is basically fair, although I tan fairly well, and my eyes, while large and round, turn slightly downwards on the sides. My sister seems to have more Slavic characteristics than I, especially with her dark hair. Also, I'm guessing that the Pakistani-North Indian-Arab influences mentioned on the report are probably representative of Roma peoples ("gypsy") in my ancestry. On the whole, I am very pleased with my report, and am excited to finally learn the origins of my DNA. I've also ordered DNA Tribes' Europa test, to see if it can give me a clearer breakdown of my European origins.

Comments: After studying samples on their site, it seems that my low numbers are because of mixed European, Cherokee, and African ancestry. I was a little surprised at African ancestry, but it fits the history of the southeast where my family lived, that is colonial contact with the Lower Cherokee, including adoption of slaves and free people of African ancestry. Also the lack of Cherokee or even Iroquoian populations could account for the lower numbers as well. And after reading much here and elsewhere on the net, it seems that mixed-bloods like myself tend to get these kind of results. The closest "mixed" population my profile can match is in Brazil. But it does confirm my genealogical and family info to some degree and raise more questions!

DNATribes Version Number: PGA Plus 21 marker Update
Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: 17 March 2008
Comments: I had hoped the 21 marker upgrade would finally produce a Top 20 Jewish match to affirm my majority ancestry (R1b1c, M269+, ht35 equivalent) but these matches seem broadly correct, especially my World Region compared to that of the Ashkenazi sample.pdf. I had also hoped for further definition of maternal ancestry (C1c on FGS and 31% NA on AbDNA2.5) but seem to find that only in my Extended Report and Native American Panel where low scoring top matches to MN Native Americans return full-circle to results on my first Tribes analysis of March 2006 when, based on 9 markers, my top matches were to MN Native Americans. I do not feel I have wasted my time or money. I have learned something by working with my markers on CFS, ENFSI and Omnipop and Tribes upgrades/updates have come in regular and affordable stages. For these resaons, I prefer Tribes to the 'black box' output of AbDNA.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Most of my ancestors came from Spain's Canary Islands and southern France, not far from the Spanish border, near Toulouse. My paternal haplogroup is R1B1C and my maternal haplogroup is H, according to FTDNA tests. Some of the results were expected or suspected. Northern Portugal, Andalucía and the Basque Country make sense. All of these people probably settled in the Canaries after the Spanish conquest of the islands. The French area is also close to the Basque Region. I was intrigued by the Northern India/Pakistan and Arabian results, but also the many Romanian matches, Greece and Asia Minor. I was born in Cuba and so were my parents and granparents. Great granparents etc. the Canary Islands and France. The results I received seem reasonable, even though I do not understand them yet.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Northern Portugal (0.74)32.02; Pakistan (0.76)27.71; Northern Greece (0.64)23.74; Andalucía,Spain (0.53)22.01; Szekler,Romania (0.66)20.62; Slovenia (0.55)20.53; Basque (0.82)19.75; Csango, Romania (0.42)19.49; Spain (0.5)14.42; Bangladesh (0.59)16.61; UK (0.51)14.42. At the end of the list: Germany (0.43)11.46 and Vienna, Austria (0.44)10.91.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: These are basically the same locations as above, except that, after Portugal, which is still top on the list, there is a UK South Asian population (0.77)30.62. In addition, there is Caucasian Fla. USA (0.57)15.99, and a Indian (Singapore) pop. (0.44)13.26
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - World Region Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: The top ten on this list were: Northern India (0.91)93.89; India (0.75)44.40; India Tribal(0.65)19.33; Arabian(0.68)19.33; Asia Minor (0.73)12.76; Mediterranean (0.42)8.04; N.West European(0.41)6.98; North African(0.35)5.39 and Finno-Ugrian (0.3)4.01

Comments: I took the test without expecting specific results. I kept my expectations low. I did suspect I would get Portuguese/Spanish and other European matches based on what I know about my ancestors. However, I did not expect to get any matches in Eastern Europe or Northern India. But I think they make sense in a way, considering all the ancient migrations. I think I am happier with my results than many other people, according to the comments I have read. If I were to judge based on phenotypes, then I would say most are represented in my familiy, including the N.Indian and Arabian ones, but also the blond, blue-eyed ones. I had no Native American matches, nor did I expect any.

Comments: As you can see above most matches are African, or African -American. Yet I, and my family going back 4 generations before me, as well as my 3 children and 4 grandchildren are all fair skinned to very light skinned, and most of us have blonde hair and blue eyes, narrow noses, and other characteristics that do not look African at all. And all my genealogical information goes back to Europe. Is it logical that I have ALMOST NO DNA similarity with Europeans? When I questioned DNATribes on how this was possible this was the answer: "Results indicate that you have inherited DNA that is most common in some parts of Africa. However TribeScores indicate that your match scores in West and Southern Africa are outside the ordinary range of (0.25) and above. This indicates that while there is genetic material shared with African populations, your DNA profile would not be ordinary or typical for an African person. Overall, TribeScores are highest in the North African genetic region, which is part of the Caucasian (European and Near Eastern) family of regions. As new data become available, it might become possible to clarify these results in the future. " My two highest TribeScores in the Native Population Match were Oman (0.44) but with MLI only 6.96; Egyptian Berber (0.4) with MLI only 8.39; but my second highest TribeScore overall was in the Global Population Match. It was African-American with TribeScore (0.43) and MLI 50.28. I then pointed out to DNATRibes that if less than (0.25) TribeScore is outside the ordinary or typical range for an African person, as they stated, wouldn't that mean my family was an anomaly for European-looking people since the only European indicators were my Mediterranean TribeScore of (0.1) with MLI of 1.20 and Northwest European score of (0.05) with MLI of 0.67. The response: "Results indicate your DNA profile obtains a TribeScore of (0.05) for the Northwest European genetic region. This is at the threshold between the expected range (0.05 and above), and what is unusual for individuals from this part of the world (below 0.05) in our present database. However, it might become possible to clarify these results as new data become available in the future." This sounds about as logical as saying: "Even though it is midnight, there is enough light present at various places to be beyond the threshold of what is called daytime." Or "Even though the clock says it is noon right now, and it appears to be noon, there is enough darkness present in the shadows and at various places to qualify it to be called night." Either my data or their test was compromised, or they have far too small a database, and/or accurate processes to call this science in any sense.

Comments: This update contains 2 new markers (Penta D and E). The results were disappointing as usual even with the addition of two new markers. Any one looking at these results would think that I'm Asian. The only Asian physical characteristic I have is epicanthal eyefolds but my eyes are large. It is found in both sides of my family. My maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother both had eyes like this. I had my mtDNA analyzed and it was U5 with mutations 224C and 270T. Presumably, these mutations are North African and associated with the Guanches(the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands). The Guanches were supposedly of Berber origin. My maternal grandfather also had Berber y-DNA (Eb2). My father's mtDNA was the biggest surprise since it was L1b(sub-Saharan Africa)and at least confirmed DNAPrint 2.5 sub-Saharan African at 12% which I thought was a little high. Paper research and oral history back to around 1750 reveals no African ancestor so it must be further back than this. I can't really recommend DNATribes until my top matches are not Asian. Perhaps they just don't use enough markers to get accurate results.

Comments: Results bear no resemblance to reality. Possible reason might be that there has been an unusual mix of ancestry, as the World Region MLI values are very low and little better than random. Most English ancestors had been established in London as merchants for centuries, and this is an unusual source of immigrants to Australia and New Zealand - most early immigrants from the UK came from rural areas as rural workers were required in both colonies. It's intriguing that our known haplotypes (R1b1c* and T1) are common in the UK despite the DNA Tribes results not finding matches from there. The direct maternal line comes from Devon, and the only known mtDNA hig-res match also comes from Devon, supporting evidence for at least one line of UK ancestry.

Comments: I updated earlier results because there are now some UK samples, and two new markers had been include (Penta D and Penta E). Surprised to find strong matches to Spanish and Portugese populations, as I have no known ancestors from there. UK does now figure in my matches but previous Scottish matches have dropped out. Also, I no longer match Australian Caucasian populations as I did before. My World Region matches are sensible (except for North Africa), but the MLI figures are comparatively low, which is to be expected from my mixed ancestry. I wonder if my Spanish/North African influence comes from a single doubtful ancestor 5 generations back, or if it's simply interwoven with much European ancestry generally.

Comments: (Note: This is an update to my earlier test (4/07) in which it indicated my strongest match was Switzerland and my middle was Northeast Spain. Actual results versus expected results where a bit of surprise since I have researched all family lines back to at least the early 1800's. My genealogical research indicated a British Isles ancestry at about 75% with some German (10%), French Mediterranean (10%) and Native American (Iroquois) (5%). On the other hand, I do more closely resemble the people of the Iberian Penninsula (physically speaking) than I do the British Isles ie: brown curly hair and brown eyes and olive skin. I'm thinking my true "deep" ancestry is probably Portuguese from both a) Celtiberians that moved north to the British Isles after the Romans conquered Iberia about 100 B.C. b) Some descent from Roman soldiers stationed in the British Isles who were from Hispania c) Posible descent from the "aulde alliance" between England and Portugal dating back to the 1300's (both trade and military) d) some descent from Portuguese soldiers in the Spanish Army during the occupation of the Netherlands and the Spanish Armada.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My father's family were almost all Basque with before the 20th century Castilian and Jewish admixture in the 1500's, On paternal GGmother was French from Bearn; the other Paternal GGmother was from Cadiz was very dark. My mother's family is French Huguenot, English and Irish from the American South and have been in the USA since the 1600's and on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since the early 1700's. I would expect to see strong Northwest European, Mediterranean, Spanish, and Basque components and possibly North African and or Arab from the days of the Moor's in Spain. American Indian and Sub-Saharan African are also possible. My Y Haplogroup is G2 with characteristics similar to those of G2s in Eastern Anatolia.

DNATribes Version Number: Update
Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: 10 Oct 2007
Comments: This is an update to see if things changed with the addition of more groups of people to DNA Tribes database. I think the results are more accurate. Since I received the first DNA Tribes results I have found Jewish ancestry from the Ha-Levi/Santamaria family in my father's family and found a strong indication of American Indian ancestry in my mother's family. I suspect that the African connection is from the GGmother from Cadiz but that family and the family of the French GGmother are still a cipher and I know next to nothing about them. The husband of the GGmother from Cadiz was a Gallego from La COruna in NW Spain and though his name was Prieto he was very fair.

Comments: I was very surprised that Sicilia did not appear at all and that Sweden was the strongest. I expected some Northern European since part of my family is fair, and Sicly was ruled by the Normans for a long period, but I didn't expect it to be so dominant or that countries such as Ireland and Denmark would have higher ratings than Southern Italy. I'm not at all surprised to see North African or Arabian, since there were such influences in Sicily. I don't understand why Toscana and other places appear twice, so I would appreciate an explanation, if anyone knows. I also don't understand how they arrived at Caucasian (in the Global( and Italy without a region in the Native. My mother was also tested and I will post her results, but they raise more questions.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Was surmissing from test areas that Yemen would be the "Arab" part and Portuguese as the European because of the slave trade.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: The composite actually boiled down to this and I check with their geneticist and he thought I was on the mark: 1. Hugely: South African of the Tsongan tribe (direct descendants of Shaku Zulu) and the Tswana of Botswana but many others including Xhosa, Zulu and Hutu; followed by much lesser amounts of W. African and E. African. 2. Next Middle Eastern/Arab ( Arab of all sorts high amounts from Oman, a lot of Egyptian and some Jordanian and United Arab Emirate). 3. Then lots of North African--especially Morocco, Tunisia and a bit of Berber. 4. This is almost tied with the North African--Mediterranean/Europe primarily southern Italy but a lot of Spanish of many different types and quite a bit of Portuguese from all over. 5. This is followed by a dab of South American/Mestizo (lots of Afro-Brazilian, Costa Rican, some Cape Verde, generic of Hispanic & others). 6. Asian: North India, also Chinese Turkestan and Turkish 7. Then a smidgen of Aboriginal Australian and Polynesian in even tinier amounts. 8. And last but not least, seemingly a combo that constitutes Roma (Gypsies). 9. The tinniest bits of NW European (Irish/Scottish/Wales) and surprisingly slightly more Eastern European (Macedonia, Estonia, Poland)

Comments: I was pretty floored. I assumed for many years the West African and I just generally thought I knew who I was by paper trail and knowing what I know about history. The Yemeni is from the Ghaza Empire occupying the Tsonga people of South Africa. I'm assuming the Mediterranean is Portuguese. The funny thing is everything kind of checks out historically apart from the Polynesian and they were able to go to many of the seaside places my people hail from. The Portuguese, Turkish, Northwest & Eastern European combined with the Indian seems to point to some Romani in the family. The North African and Yemeni are a total surprise. When thrown into my geographic history suggests Melungeon. I wasn't surprised by but had no solid evidence before about the Mestizo, Brazilian or Trinidadian which popped up. I was and am amazed by this report. Kind of knocked all the air out of me. When you think you know who you are and find out differently, well...it's going to take some time to integrate this information into my mind.

Comments: The relatively high concentration of North African, East Indian, and Middle Eastern results were interesting and surprising, given that my research has not uncovered any family origins in these regions. I will be interested to see as I research our ancestry further, whether it is possible to establish a paper trail to identify specific ancestry in these regions. I'm still waiting on other test results (FTDNA Mega and ABDNA EuroDNA 2.0) that might provide additional information to help complement these results and provide clues for further research.

Comments: I thought I might share this to maybe open someone's else's eye's to the possible reason for unexpected results, as you might be suprised at what history your grandparents may be hiding from the family.... . When I got the results I was kinda thrown off initially by even having a little Native American, with Canadian & Central American Indian, Plus a pretty high Mestizo score overall for my results.. I know many question their results, as I had, since my grandmother strongly denied any type of "indian blood" on my mom's side the day I told her my results. This afternoon I decided to ask if she knew where her mother and father were from to try and go off that. She replied without hesitation that her family had no "indian" because her father was "Black dutch" and her mother was French. I asked what the black dutch looked like and she said that part of the family had black hair and black eyes(!!!) We as a family have no super strong physical resemblance to what many might consider "Indian features" and I really questioned the initial results, but she had never had a reason to bring up the black dutch background till I had specifically asked and still denies the "indian" hit is from her family, though I now question that after researching "black Dutch" in the South.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Family members had traced my mom's-father's line and my Dad's-father's line back to Virginia/Kentucky area to around the mid 1600's, with the typical English/Irish rumored history. No real knowledge beyond that and no real knowledge of the wives of these men, therefore I kept an open mind about what the result might show. I am Caucasian and always knew/assumed there was the obvious European connection but pretty much assumed I was a "mutt", and was curious to see what this test would show. Out of Curiosity I added the Native American Panel, though I didn't expect much, I was suprised at even the little smidge I did get. Being from the South I wish the Southern Native Americans were included since there is a lot of history in that area with Cherokee, though I have not heard of anything recent in my family.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: No super strong/high hit but did verify the section of the world you might expect for my background considering world empires and human movement..

Comments: I kept an open mind and when you really think about human movement and World Empires,etc, the results were not a huge suprise. There was the expected family results for Caucasian-Virgina, but there were some interesting finds ( who knows where they are from or how old they are). The most unexpected was the native American Panel, which showed a very,very miniscule, but solid hit for Dogrib/Canada(.84) and, Athbaskan(.60) to include the smidge of arctic. This was most interesting because my mother and I have slightly squinted eyes and many times in my life people have asked if we had an Asian or Eskimo background. Granted this test result could be from the Neolithic human migration DNA since we know of no such family connection, but we found it interesting. Additionally, on the Caucasian Comparison results I found am not as "pure",you might say, as other sampled Caucasians. My Caucasian comparison results indicated I have "very,very high" results for Arctic, North Amerindian, ,Central Amerindian & Amazonian??...Only about 2% of other sampled Caucasians have my amounts, so I really am a "mutt".

DNATribes Version Number: DNA Tribes 15 Allele Test (Update)
Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: 03 August 2007
Comments: I ordered an update on my first test results dating from May 2007 since DNA Tribes had added 2 additional markers and I see a HUGE difference - Mongolia is no longer #1 in my list of matches and these new results closely match what my paper research says about my origins. I am completely satisfied with the DNA Tribes test now and no longer think that some huge mistake was made in the lab :D. The Uzbek match is still a little puzzling, but maybe there was a Turk or Ottoman somewhere in the Hungarian branch of my family tree?

Comments: Different from results of first test done five months earlier mainly due to addition of two new markers -Penta D and Penta E. - I believe much closer to Jewish Middle Eastern origins . Earlier test showed North African followed by Mediterranean as being main Wold Regions. Matches to Basques and Berbers as well as Mahgreb were much reduced in this newer version Still expected matches to other Jewish population sample ( sefardic and Middle Eastern)

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): All my prior personal family knowledge and 30 years of genealogy research indicates I am mostly of Northern Irish and English origin with some German and French and a little Native American (Iroquois).
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: (Strongest) = Switzerland 97.5, (Middle) = Northeast Spain 69.3, (Low) = Szekler (Romania) 43.9, Kurdish (Northern Iraq) 41.7, Pakistan 40.7, Northern Portugal 40.1, Portugal 35.9, Lombardia (Italy) 32.1

Comments: Actual results compared to expected results: I was very surprised I did not have high matches in the British Isles (especially Northern Ireland). I also expected some middle matches in Germany and France. I have been doing genealogy for 30 years now and have documentation of my British Isles ancestry and have been there and seen the homes, churches, records of my ancestors. My great grandfather Irwin is from Co Tryone, Northern Ireland and my great grandmother Valentine is from Lancashire, England. Surprises: Switzerland being so high (I believe this could be the Continental Celts who were driven out of the Alps by Caesar and the Romans and fled with the Gauls first to Belgica and then England around 50 BC). Northeast Spain made sense since I have French Mediterranean ancestry which is close by. The Romanian, Kurdish and Pakistani matches lead me to think there is Old English "Romany" (Gypsy) ancestry in the family as part of my family is from SE England (Kent) which to this day has a sizable number of Roma.

Comments: I was shocked at the high Mongolian and Central Asian scores, I think it could be due to the Hungarian influence in my genetics, my Native American ancestry, or a combination of both. The Hispanic reference is really confusing because none of my family has been traced to that ethnic group. I'm also surprised that I received no scores for England although a good deal of my ancestry originates there. I have no scores for Switzerland either but my scores from northern Italy and Austria could have originated from there since they are neighboring countries. If DNA Tribes ever includes scores from southeastern Native American tribes I'll update my results, because I think it could make a huge difference. I may try a DNAPrint test next, maybe it'll help to clarify what I've seen in my results.

Comments: I am totally confused. I got no yellow or orange dots on my native map and only 1 red for Tunisia. What could that mean? I had several blue scattered throughout Asia and the middle East. I don't understand my results at all. I certainly don't get all these Asian and Indian results. I am one fourth Cherokee and the rest European descent. I have researched my family history for 10 years and other than the Cherokee (which is prominent), everything I found came from the British Isles or Germany. I had an admixture test done a few months ago that said 77% European, 22% Native American, 1% African and 0% Asian. On my global map I had one yellow square in East Timor. On the world region map I have a few tiny circles in Europe but my large circles are in India, Japan and Turkey. I just don't get it. I need help!

Comments: There is a very strong family tradition of American Indian on my mother's side, and the Mestizo would seem to indicate that is possibly true. I did the Y-DNA and mtDNA testing with FTDNA and came out R1b1 and T1 respectively. I have had several distant cousins do FTDNA testing, so I became aware that although most Y-DNA tests have turned out to be R1b1, there was one J2 and one G2. So, knowing my background through both traditional and DNA methods, I actually was not surprised at all with the DNA Tribes results.

Comments: I expected the mediterranean links because of the Italian last name and as did I expect the melungeon/mediterranean link as well. My mom was told by her parents that they were Indian, One Great Grandmother was Full Blooded Cherokee and another Great Grandmother was supposed to be Apache. If this was true it would have definitively shown up on this report. This is a common story for Melungeons to tell, maybe even believing it because of racial tensions in that time frame. Please email me with any info that you either have or want that I might be able to help you with.

Comments: I was extremely shocked by my genetic profile. But after doing some research, I strongly believe DNAtribes' analysis is correct. The Spaniards and the Dutch occupied Taiwan in the 1600s (Lille was part of the Netherlands). The Ashkenazi ancestry was the most shocking. I told my dad I did a DNA test and asked him who my ancestors were, he said, "international". I asked him if he knew we were Jewish, he said, "yes". If you place your ancestors on a map, you might be able to see a migration pattern.

Comments: I kind of wondered if the World Region Match was influenced by information I provided when applying for the test kit. The European matches didn't surprise me too much, as I have Hungarian, Swedish, Scottish, German etc, etc. I was baffled by the Mediterranean match, as well as its high percentage. The North African match would be just about correct if it entered the family when it was suspected, but I still don't know what to make of it as a whole. I wish someone could show me how these final results came from the previous ones... Am I reading it incorrectly?

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I was born in a borough of NYC in the 1970s. My maternal grandmother is from Puerto Rico, possibly San Juan. My maternal grandfather might be from France but I don't know this for a fact and have no way of finding out. My paternal grandmother is from the Abruzzo region of Italy and my paternal grandfather is supposedly from Ireland but I always had suspicions of us actually being Scots-Irish instead, based on the spelling of my last name. I knew nothing beyond that but I did suspect Spanish/African/Native Taino tribe results due to the Puerto Rican heritage. I also know of a paternal great-great(great?)-grandfather who was either from Germany or possibly Austria. I have not done a lot of research on my family history compared to others here. I've only tracked the paternal grandfather's relatives back to the early 1800s and hit a roadblock.

Comments: First of all, my profile seems quite Mediterranean. Half of my "deep ancestry" roots are various populations from Turkey. My theory is that this is related to the Moors and the Spanish part of Puerto Rican ancestry. It's also possible my Italian relatives also may have mixed with the Turks though I honestly know nothing for certain. I expected African ancestry of some kind but I didn't know where they might be from. I imagine the various Latin American results may be related to the expected Taino ancestry. Indian and Polish ancestry was a complete surprise. I have no idea where Poland comes in but I have a good idea that I would need someone more knowledgeable to confirm as a strong possibility. One of my matches was Dundee, Scotland (which confirms my suspicions as detailed in the "expected" section) and Dundee is known for its marmalade and had a booming marmalade industry in the 18th century. The Indian match (Lotha, a fairly small tribe considering, apparently headhunters) lives in Wokha, which is famous for its pineapples and oranges. My suspicion is that a Scottish ancestor, anywhere from the 1500s to the 1700s and possibly 1800s, may have married/had children with a Lotha woman and that it may have had to do with marmalade because the region was famous for its oranges. Either that or my ancestor was in the jute industry -- all educated guesses based on the history of Dundee. It would also seem reasonable that we may not know the Lotha ancestor's real name as she likely took a "Christian" name and the husband's last name if they married. In the 80s, I had been told I had an American Indian great-great(-great?) grandmother but what if Indian really meant from India and someone got it wrong over the years? This test certainly brings up many questions in my mind and some of the possibilities actually make a lot of sense. I also expected Italian results but the two regions were a surprise to me. All in all, I am quite pleased with my results. They seem rather consistent with what I expected, actually managed to solve the Irish vs. Scottish mystery for me AND opened up new possibilities. There's lots of history to be uncovered here! If anyone has any sort of insight as far as the history of any of these peoples compared to my recent ancestry and expected results, or if you have knowledge of the history of Dundee, Scotland and possible migration to Ireland, please don't hesitate to email me.

Comments: I am somewhat surprised with the results. No match to African Americans in South Carolina is surprising and also the strong Finn-Ugrian score. I'm not exactly sure what to make of all of this yet. I'm awaiting percentage analysis from another test and I will certainly have this updated as they add more groups to their database as I'm sure it would change my scores. I also know from a previous test that my mtDNA haplogroup is L1. This is all very interesting to me.

Comments: My Y-DNA result was I1a* and my mtDNA result was T5. I also have X-STR results that are consistent with being of a germanic background. I have long been interested in conventional genealogy and have traced back most of my ancestors to at least 1650 CE. Virtually all of my ancestors were born in The Netherlands, a few came from the Dusseldorf area of Germany and one came from England in 1500 CE. When I received my autosomal results from FTDNA I thought that either my test results were incorrectly entered or that my sample was switched with someone born in Nepal. I have asked for a retest just in case. I was "happy" to see in this log book that other people of a clearly north-western european background were also showing unusually high asian results. This is the first DNA test I have taken that gave results that did not make sense given my known ancestry.

Comments: Not too many surprises; I thought we might have a touch of American Indian or Native American if you wish. My mother's family has been in the USA since the 1600's. Transported for being sheep thieves and Quakers. My father's family accents for the Mediterranean and Spanish matches. The affinity to Italy is somewhat of a surprise but the Gipuzkoan Basque and the Tuscan values are fairly close. I have many Paternal Grandmothers in the 19th century and earlier who still need some research. I noticed from the sample that most Caucasian American have a fair amount of affinity to the Arabian and Anatolian values. I have signed up for the Relative genetics test. I know the results are provided in a different format but it will still be an interesting comparison.

Comments: I was very surprised at the Mediterranean score. I really expected to see not much of anything but Northwest Europe on the report. I only know of relatives that immigrated from Germany, England and Ireland. I asked my mother about it and she says that all she knows of. She was surprised at the report also. She was also surprised that it didn't show any Native American because her grandmother always said we were Black Dutch. My Mtdna came back with a H1 haplogroup. No male family members to test the Ydna though. That's why I used the autosomal test.

Comments: This is really a mind blower. If these tests are worthwile, there was a sailor involved early on. But when you see the plot on the map in native population match it draws a line staight from India to Rome. I would surmise my English ancestors were residual Centurions from Hadrians legion. I question the accuracy of the algorithms, would like a retest.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): From mother's side, strong Mexican and Spanish matches, given languages spoken at home, family documents, and oral histories that claim family origin from Andalusia. From father's side, strong Celtic matches, given YDNA-tested R1b 25/25 matched to known Welsh-descent gentleman with almost idential surname, probably a cousin. Probable matches to Central European populations or diasporas, given mtDNA-tested H5a. Possible matches to other UK as well as German, Portuguese, Basque, and Semitic or Persian populations, given continuing research on paper trails.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Strong: Spain 12.4 Average: Greek Cypriot 11.8, Greece 11.7, Oman 11.7, Spain 11.6, Iran 11.4, Greece 10.0 Several low matches primarily in 3 world regions Interesting geographic outlier: (Low) Uzbek (Xinjiang, Chinese Turkestan) 5.5

Comments: Granted, my match numbers are nowhere near as definitive as those of the sample populations on the DNAT website, or others on this site. That doesn't seem strange in my case, though, because my parents are of such different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. And the data does corroborate some of my expectations. I anticipated strong Spanish matches and got one. I matched at an average level with several Hispanic diaspora populations. Given some of my phenotypic traits, I was not surprised to find regional affinities for Asia Minor and the Mediterranean. But the data also offers some provocative hints. For one, there is a strong suggestion that I am much more Spanish than Mestizo. Despite my highest world region match score being from the Mestizo "region," my analogous scores for all other Native American regions and Sub-Saharan Africa were all well under 0.5, and I did not match at all with any native or global populations from those regions. Rather, I matched strongly with Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Spain. Another interesting hint--my relatively high Mongolian affinity--has me wondering which of my parents I'm going to ask to test with DNAT. This question will await further elucidation. Readers: I would be glad to receive professional comments on this information, as well as conjectures from individuals with relevant training in history and anthropology--or if you simply have a similar set of test results! Thanks and best regards.

Comments: Given my known ancestry from England, Scotland and northern Germany (Mecklenburg-Strelitz and Silesia) my matches for World Region matches for Northwest Europe and Finno-Ugrian areas is just what I would have expected. I'm not surprised by the lack of Strong or Strongest matches in my ancestry, as my forebears came from widely scattered areas of the UK and Germany, and this mix is born out by my matching other European diaspora populations in Australia and the USA. What is entirely unexpected is my comparatively strong match with Moroccan Berbers and some Mediterranean countries in all three categories. I have no idea where that comes from.

Comments: Craig's results are essentially quite similar to my first several sets of results. Iranian is the big dog, with numerous matches in the Black Sea area and the Balkans. The major difference are his Italian and Spanish matches, which I don't have. My two most recent sets of results have included some of the new populations from the British Isles - particularly Northern Ireland, which scores high with me (go figure). I am assuming that my brother's Spanish matches, his Netherlands match and perhaps some of his Northern Italian matches are picking up the same sort of Celtic/Western European Paleolithic DNA that score matches in N. Ireland, Scotland, and Lille, France (i.e., Flanders) for me. There is nonetheless a consistent orientation towards Southwest Asia, Southeast Europe and Eastern Europe in general. Craig's Balkan and circum-Black Sea matches do tend to corroborate at least some genetic contribution from the Roman auxiliaries from those areas who served in large numbers in North Britain. As for our ENFSI results, both of us include North Ireland, Poland, Germany and Belgium in our top six results, which is in keeping with our known Scots-Irish, Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Flemish ancestry.

Comments: I am a satisfied customer of DNATribes, although they did not give me the results I would have expected. I have a surprising "Indian look" to my autosomal DNA. There is no paper genealogical reason for this; it either reflects ancestry that didn't get down on paper, or ancient influences. DNATribes shows, however, (if I remember correctly) that about 2.2% of Europeans have a profile like this. I suppose I'm in the 2.2%. There were no close matches for either the Global or Native population matches. I showed a closest match to an Italian population (not expected, but not surprising), a second closest match to Thailand (the Indian influence, I imagine), and various other scattered, weak matches. I'm still waiting for the discovery of the small population of "Indian looking" DNA somewhere in Europe "exactly like" mine that would help my paper genealogy, but I doubt if such a population exists. I'll update again with DNATribes if they get some more European populations. DNATribes customer service was excellent and their update service was lightening fast (less than an hour). Cheers, Steve

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Born Essex England,back to 1700 then disappear.Name could be Scot, but English could be anything. DNA tests show Celtic. looking mainly for origins/Scot etc. Suspected I may be descended from Roman Legionaire, IV Legion at Hadrians Wall. Sarmatioan Knights of Roman Officer Aturius.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: In all charts strongest= Bosnian 120.7 next strongest= Naples, Italy about three groupings for present DAY in Glasgow, Dundee and Strathclyde, Scotland. research on my part follows.... Bosnia is imediately across Adriatic Sea from Naples. Emporor Diocletian and other emporors came from Split in this area of " Bosnia". Naples was the main port for Rome. The IX Roman Legion was marched off to Glasgow, and disapeared about the year 80.Without a trace. Nothing. I am a Clarkson, and perhaps of the Clan Chattan, or whatever Clan that sees Clarkson as a Sept in this area. GREAT JOB !! PERHAPS I AM THE LAST lEGIONAIRE OF THE IX LEGION... EXCEPT FOR THOSE OTHER MATCHES IN SCOTLAND :-)

Comments: I had some doubts originally reading other commentary on this board, and voiced these doubts to DNA TRIBES. They said I could have my money back at this point, but I thought that many readers here wanted results relating to present family history. That relates to genealogy, not DNA. DNA relates to thousands of years, not decades. I now have no doubt that DNA TRIBES is a valid testing service. If I was a Scot and got results back saying Bosnia, I would think that someone had gone mad. But it works!

Comments: My mother is full-blooded Italian. All four of her grandparents were from just outrside of Naples in Italy. My father's mother is 100$ English-Scots. Her paternal grandfather's ancestry traces all the way back to WIlliam Brewster of the Mayflower, jer maternal to Yorkshire and Scotland. All four of father's paternal great-grandparents came from Warsaw in Poland. Given that familial ancestry, do the previous matches seem somewhat "off" (i.e. incorrect) to you?

Comments: Was totally blow away by the strong connection to Mestizo (Ecuado) and then confused by the result's of the World Region Match having Mestizo at 0.3 . Can anyone explain this to me and tell me what race I would most strongly be connected to? Thank you.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am 100% Puerto Rican. I expected to match with populations in Spain and South and Central Native Americans.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Podlasie(Northeast Poland) 27.1, Northern Ireland 26.8. These two were my Strongest matches. Average matches were Denmark at 19.2 and Strathclyde, Scotland at 16.1.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Strongest was once again Podlasie at 27.1 and Northern Ireland at 26.8. A Strong Match with Chinese(Malaysia) at 21.6. Average matches once again with Denmark at 19.2 and Strathclyde, Scotland at 16.1.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - World Region Match Strong/Strongest and Respective MLIs were: Northeast-Asian at 15.8 was the highest score, followed by Phillipine 9.1, Southeast Asian 7.9, Sino-Tibetan at 5.0 and Mestizo at 1.2. Scores below 1.0 are considered insignificant. My next was Northwest European at .5.

Comments: I really felt I wasted my money with DNA Tribes. The results made absolutely no sense. My Continent Match matched me with Asians. I have no Asians in my family history only Native-American (Taino) from Puerto Rico. Also strange is that the Continent Match does not match with the Native and Global Matches of Podlasie and Northern Ireland. I have no Polish or Irish in my family tree so why would I match with these populations? My DNA Print 2.5 revealed I was 80% European, 12% African and 8% Native-American. I did the DNA Tribes to find my African matches but the Continent Match for Africa was 0. The South and Northeast Amerindian was also 0. It appears that the Taino DNA more closely resembles that of Asian peoples. However, DNA Print 2.5 found no East Asian. Anyone who can shed light on these inconsistent results between DNA Print and DNA Tribes please e-mail me.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I am Taiwanese-American. 3 years ago I took a test by Ancestry by DNA and was intrigued by the results which came out as follows: 85% East Asian, 3% Native American, 12% IndoEuropean. I believe the 3% Native American was within the margine of error and probably was Northeastern Asian genes. I was curious about the "IndoEuropean" part because that covers a wide region from Europe to North Africa to the Middle East to South Asia. Could that have been from Dutch who colonized Taiwan in the 1600's or Persians/Arabs who lived in Quanzhou, Fujian, China? Or maybe some North American Caucasian missionary with some Native American blood who settled Taiwan or part of DNAs that remained when the ancestors of Caucasians and Mongoloids split off? Or was that some grave error by Ancestry By DNA. Thus, DNA Tribes to the rescue. But, being Taiwanese, I have largely Southern Chinese ancestry from Southern Fujian province in China. Thus, I expected to match high with "Han Min Nan" who predominate in Fujian, China.

Comments: I was not surprised with the matches, just surprised which ethnic groups I matched highest with (Vietnamese whom I know are related to Southern Chinese) (Yi are an ethnic minority in Southern China and many Southern Han Chinese match closely with the Southern ethnic minorities because they may actually be mixed with them). I was surprised that matched high with Korean. I though I would match, but not that high. Southern Chinese Han and Taiwanese are often grouped as Sino-Tibetan or group more closely with Southeast Asian. Koreans are Northeast Asian, but they may have Southeast Asians who mixed into Korea many years ago as with in Japan. I supposed my "IndoEuropean" results from Ancestry By DNA would come from the Bangladeshi whom are South Asian. Does make sense since I have World Region Match that includes North Indian at 5.4.

Comments: I was very pleased with the results. The stongest Native and Global population matches both were Portuguese with a strong Spanish influence. This agreed with my research that on my fathers side, my great grandmothers paternal line came from Portugal and Spain. The migration patterns to America on the Global Population Match chart confirmed my reasearch for both my paternal and maternal sides. In the World Region Match, though it had ambiguous scores, the regions still coinsided with the data on the Global and Tribal Matches. I took a DNA Print Test but did not find the information as helpful to me as this one. However, both the DNA Print and DNA Tribes test confirmed that I don't have any Native American Ancestry, like I thought prior to taking the tests.

This almost makes me question the validity of the tests. If anyone could help analyze this, that would be great. Why are some listed twice like Greek Cypriot? Thanks.

Comments: It ought to show typical British/Saxon/Danish/French origins for the UK but does not. From the slightly non-English appearance of some family members we were expecting maybe something like Jewish to show up. The mixed Euro/Aboriginal top score in Global Match is a puzzle as also the Aboriginal score of 17.5. Hardly any Australian Aboriginals ever came to England to the best of my knowledge.

Comments: When i took a DNA test from Family tree DNA, i was a little disappointed the test told what i mostly already know about my family history with a few surpises. Honestly, I hope for the truth for North Native American story to my family history about my maternal g-grand Father who is described as tall,very dark complexion,with somewhat Native American facial feature came from the Black Hills of South Dakota,My paternal grand mother who was short,very dark skin complexion,medium fine hair texture, with native American profile.With my other DNA profile from the family tree DNA, I matches Y-DNA & mtDNA With others african-american who admixture with native americans(Mexico,Cherokees,Puerto Rico &Trinidad).I wonder,if there`s something wrong about this test or any updates matches when their receives more samples? I`m open for any comments you may have,thank you.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My father's family, Ukrainian Jews, emigrated to Canada about 1911. My mother's family is a mystery as she was informally adopted as an infant. She believed her mother was French-Indian and her father from the British Isles but I have no documentation for these beliefs. My mother looked Native American and a French-Indian ancestry fits well with an Upper Midwest origin. My mtDNA haplogroup is C, a DNAP test returned 60%IE, 31%NA, and 9%SSAF, and my original DNAT test matched me to two Minnesota NA populations (see my entries on those logs).
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: With an MLI score range from 7.3 to 3.3 over twenty matches, I got no Native "dead ringers" and twenty matches more-or-less equal in value. All Native matches are Old World. My top five Native matches are Piemonte, Italy, Turkish, Liguria, Italy, and Northwest Italy (Piedmont).
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: With an MLI score range of 7.3 to 4.4 over twenty matches, I got no Global "dead ringers" and twenty matches more-or-less equal in value. Fourteen Global matches are Old World and six are New World ("Hispanic"). My top five Global matches are Piemonte, Italy, Paraguayan, Turkish, Liguria, Italy, Northwest Italy (Piedmont).
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Continent Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: My top five Continental matches are Asia Minor with an MLI at 10.2, Arabian at 5.3, European at 3.7, North African at 2.1, and Latin American at 2.0. Notably, given previous DNAT and DNAP results, my Sub-Saharan African Continental MLI is 0.1, and my Northern Native American comes in at 0.0.

Comments: My original DNAT results were confirming and comparatively easy to understand (see log entry below) - my Global results clustered around Native American with European admixture and my Native results around European with Asian admixture ... just what one would expect given my background. While the Upgraded results split-out in a similar overall fashion, there are now more clusters and more distinct clusters to consider. Most intriguing to me are Italian matches spanning four provinces linked by shared borders - from south-to-north and east-to-west - Marche, Emilia-Romagna, Ligura and Piedmont. This arc continues to the south with a match to a Campania sample, and might be seen to continue to the west with matches to a Northeast Spain and Northern Portugal sample. I don't know what to make of this geographic pattern and wonder if anyone has an idea of what it signifies. I also wonder if the Italian samples are stand-ins for French samples not presently included in DNAT's database? I also have an Asia Minor cluster with matches to Greek Cypriot, several Turkish, a Jordanian, Kurdish and Afghan samples. As with my original DNAT results I have several Global matches to Hispanic Diaspora populations with signifcant NA admixture, but whereas several of my orginal matches were North American, all my new matches are more southerly. Finally, I also have outlying matches in Native to Podlasie (Northeast Poland), Chinese, Szekler (Romania), Flemish, and Bangladeshi. Any comment on this post are appreciated. All email answered.

Comments: What a difference a couple of weeks and a few new populations make! With my first analysis, I was left with a bunch of Native Matches in South India that I could not easily explain. Now I have a bunch of hits in Italy and my Indian hits are reduced. I suspect they have changed their algorithm a bit as well as added populations. My Continental Matches now split up my "Indian" reading with the Asia Minor, a new category. I wonder if I haven't been paying too much attention to this mathematical analysis of the overall pattern formed by the CODIS markers. Autosomal DNA recombines and crosses over, so it may make more sense to look for the origin of individual markers rather than the overall pattern, unless you are adopted and trying to find out where you come from. As a case in point, when I analyzed the overall pattern of my markers with Omnipop, I got similar results to the dnatribes results, a bigger North African influence and similar Indian and European influences. Almost certainly this difference from dnatribes is because of the different sets of population data. When I looked at my CODIS markers one by one compared to the data in Omnipop, however, I found that 10 of my 26 markers were most common in Native American populations. This was completely covered up when I looked at the overall pattern. Since you inherit markers one by one, and may only have one or two markers from an ancestor a few generations back, you would expect someone like me, who probably has a few Native American ancestors back around 1750-1800, to find only a few markers that show this influence. I encourage anyone who got unexpected results from dnatribes to try looking at their markers one at a time with Omnipop to see if any interesting patterns emerge :) Perhaps some day dnatribes will offer a similar analysis. steve

Comments: (I wonder if the numerical values for the continent matches have been changed. My report said above 1 was "significant) These results are astounding. I know that it rarely happens, but I have to wonder if someone mixed up test tubes somewhere. If these results are true, I have a big new datapoint to explain somewhere in my background. I also ran my data with Omnipop and got similar results considering that there are different population samples involved. Southern Moraccan Berbers 1.72E+12 Oriya Brahmin (India 1.75E+12 Berbers (Morocco) 3.00E+12 Chinese 3.50E+12 and so on. The Berber/North Africa nature of the markers seemed to come out more with Omnipop. STRbase didn't show anything interesting, but of course those are only European samples. I'm going to check about the testtube mixup issue, and then have a bunch of fun trying to figure out how this Kentucky white guy wound up with Tamil and Berber DNA :) steve

Comments: I was VERY shocked by the results...I was fully expecting to find Western and Northern European results, which coincides with what I know about my family history. Of course, I don't have all my family lines traced beyond 500 years ago, but the results were very suprising - particularly with the very low MLI scores in all areas. I did find it interesting that almost all the low scores seemed to be in very close geographical regions. It has definately given me food for thought.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My previously known genealogy: a hundred percent Irish, and before that, a certain admixture of Norman, and Scottish, including Anglo-Danish Scottish. There were rumors of Native American ancestry. Given my dark eyes and hair in a predominantly Nordic looking family, I was curious about that.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Native Match: No "Excellent." Good: Berber(Morocco), 35. Fair, Northern Greek, 28. Fair: Yemeni, 20. Weak and Poor include Katkari Tribe, India, 16, Flemish, 16, Greek Cypriot, 14, Portuguese, 13, Hungarian, 9, Iranian, 7, Syrian, 6.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Global Match: Excellent, Paraguayan, 84. Good, Berber (Morocco); 35. The others are Weak and Poor.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Continent Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: All results are Ambigious. The highest mark, North Indian, is 28. European is 11. Latin American, 2. Sub Saharan African, 2. South Asian, 1.

Comments: I would appreciate comment from someone who understands this test better than I. Why are my scores so low? My Continent Match (highest score, North India, 28) seems negligible and"North India" makes no sense, except that all of Europe probably marched through northern India thirty thousand years ago. "North Africa" in terms of my Berber and Yemeni DNA would seem more accurate. Was that a mistake? My highest Native Match, Berber, was 35. Where are my Norman (Burke, Armstrong, Cashen, etc.) ancestors reflected in all this? Is DNA a selective process for given individuals? I did get one high score in Global Match (Paraguay, 84) According to Wikipedia, Paraguayans are predominantly metizo and I have no Native American or East Asian DNA, so what are we talking about? All I can figure is that my Berber and Yemeni ancestors might have been part of Moorish Spain and when they were ejected by Isabella La Catolica, immigrated to Paraguay, although most of that group seems to have resettled in North Africa. Sixteen of my sixteen great grandparents were born in Ireland, so I'm understandably confused by the Paraguayan reference. As I understand it, a population with a bloodline most like mine can be located in Paraguay. I'm not fighting science, just trying to make sense of it. I'm hoping someone might comment. thank you.

Comments: Autosomal DNA: 10 percent Native American and 90 percent Indo European. mtDNA:H1a A bit surprised and confused about the test results. The European is totally expected since I have ancestry from numerous countries. Germany, Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, ect. American Indian from south eastern U.S. Genealogy paperwork has my ancestors comming into the Colonial states in 1600 and 1700's where they intermarried with the First Nations people. I just found Spanish and Portugese ancestry right before this test was ordered, maybe that explains the Latin American. The South Asian, North Indian, East Asian are total surprises. I have no known ancestry from these areas but would love too Not sure what that means. Help!

DNATribes Version Number: DNA Tribes PGA Upgrade
Date DNATribes Test/Analysis was Ordered: 14 May 2006
Comments: This is my second posting. My first posting was based on the results for 9 CODIS pairs. I have since upgraded for 13 CODIS pairs, and for a global population expanded by 60 new samples. The refined results are, if anything, more accurate. My Scottish is now a "Good" one, ranking number three, the mix of match regions has shifted slightly to Southeastern Europe over Southwest Asia, and my European region match is now a healthy 82. I have also entered my CODIS pairs into the ENFSI STR database, and there is a good correspondence with the DNA Tribes results. At least 3 of my top 5 match hits in ENFSI have close equivalents in DNA Tribes. North Ireland maps to Scottish, Poland maps to Southeast and South Poland, and Croatia maps to Bosnia-Herzogovina. Germany, the top match in ENFSI, doesn't appear at all in the DNA Tribes results, but could map to the Weak match with Austria - as could the Czech Republic, which is also in my ENFSI top five. (The ENFSI results do confirm an ancestry that includes both Celtic and Germanic elements. Howver, the ENFSI database has only a few locales from Southeast Europe, and none from either Russia or Asia.) In spite of the foregoing, the Iranian match in DNA Tribes is even stronger than before, well above Excellent at 71. I don't interpret that to mean that I am genetically closer to modern day Iranians than to anyone else. That would be patently ridiculous to anyone who has seen my photograph (but not to those who would have seen either of my grandfathers, because both of them could easily have walked the streets of Tehran without attracting notice). However, I do entertain the hypothesis that I have a strong element of Indo-Iranian ancestry. It may be very old, simply the trace of the prehistoric kurgan dwellers who first brought the Indo-European languages into Europe. But this influence most likely was also reinforced by the Scythian and Sarmatian peoples, both of which spoke Iranian languages, and both of which settled in large numbers in the circum-Black Sea region and Southeastern Europe during classical times, over a period of nearly a thousand years. They settled in Thrace (Northern Greece), Anatolia (Turkey), South Russia and the Ukraine, Southern Poland, Croatia and Bosnia, Dacia (i.e., Romania and Slovakia), Hungary, and Northern Italy. Other Iranian nomads also invaded Northern India. This list includes ALL of the populations in my DNA Tribes results - except for Scottish, and we'll get to that presently. At least half of my ancestors lived within 20 or 30 miles of Hadrian's Wall for many centuries. The Romans stationed many thousands of troops in North Britain, at least half of whom were auxiliaries - including Dacians, Dalmatians (from modern day Croatia), Pannonians, Thracians and Hungarian Sarmatians. Most of these never returned home after their tour of duty, and settled in large numbers in North Britain. Considering the strength of the Iranian match, and the abundance of locales in my other DNA Tribes results which both saw Iranian settlement AND provided troops to the Roman forces in North Britain, it is entirely feasible that these guys were some of my ancestors. Moreover, Sarmatian Alans also settled in medieval France, becoming part of the Breton aristocracy, and on my Scottish side I am descended from them as well. Hence, I am satisfied with my DNA Tribes results and they make sense to me.

Comments: I am quite excited yet surprised. I expected Africa and India to be more prominent. Time for more tests such as AA and ancestrybyDNA. The Jewish seems to tie. The Albania area may be related to that but that my tie to earlier Scottish migration origin. Parts of Scotland has ties to Spain and the Mediterranean. This test definitely brings up more questions than answers. I believe DNA Tribe has weak tests in Africa but support mostly tribes in Europe...Am I wrong?

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Paternal line has been traced back to John Crompton born c1790 Pilkington, Manchester, Lancashire, England. Maternal line has been traced back to Mary Richards (nee?) born c1800, in Swingfield, Kent, England. There is a Cornish branch in my mothers family and an Irish Norman(FitzGerald) branch in my father's family but these are not the direct paternal or maternal lines and apart from these all the other branches appear to be English. For these reasons prior to testing I assumed my mother's element would be very strongly Anglo-Saxon/Jutish (because of Kent) or possibly Norman but wasn't so sure what my father's element would be because of Manchester's location in history as the cross-roads between Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. However being in the north west of England, I thought the greatest probability would be of Celtic / Angle / Norse origin (since this area was heavily settled by Norwegians in the period of the joint kingdom of Dublin and York).
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Excellent: Scottish 141, Syrian 72. Fair: Lower Middle Caste (Andhra Pradesh, India) 20.

Comments: Overall I think the results are probably valid. The top result by far is Scottish. This is the only British sample DNA Tribes test against. Every ancestor so far in my family tree are from the British Isles. I have ancestors from England, Ireland and so far one from Wales, but none so far discovered in Scotland. Since obtaining the results I have been spurred on to do further reseach on all family lines. The earliest ancestor so far discovered on each branch is given in brackets. Paternal Grandfather's line: Wholly from Bury, near Manchester NW England. (Crompton c1790) Paternal Grandmother's line: Wholly from Ireland (what is now southern Ireland) apart from one Welsh ancestor discovered so far. (Riley 1820) Maternal Grandfather's line: Wholly from SE Midlands/London (Mayo 1799) Maternal Grandmother's line: Two branches one from the far west of Cornwall, the other from the far South East of Kent. (Nettle 1673, Cornwall) & (Richards 1776, Kent) I feel the ambigous Continental Match results reflect this mixture of paternal side Irish Gaelic & Norse (plus a smattering of Welsh), Angle and Norse AND Maternal Side Cornish Brythonic, Anglo-Saxon/Danish + anything else via London!/Kent probably including the Normans since my Mayo family are supposed to be the branch of Norman origin rather than the one of Irish origin. I have no idea what the Syrian "Excellent" match means although could be tied up possibly with the Crusaders of Norman origin? Apparently the inhabitants of Andhra-Pradesh are a mixture of Dravidian and Aryan populations - could this also be indicative of possible ancestors similar to the Normans or just indicative of a more general Indo-Eruopean connection. The interesting thing is that my match here goes across three castes all in the same region and if you add those three results together you get Andhra Pradesh 46 making it fall within the "Excellent" bracket! Interesting as two of my four ancestral lines are meant to be descended from Norman lines - the Mayos and the FitzGeralds - the latter of which are said to descend from the Geraldinis of Italy - hence my weak tie to Italy?

Comments: The Porruguese and Spanish expectations were cnfirmed. Although raised as a Catholic, I expected some Jewish ancestry, by deduction from the history of Spain and the forced Jewish migrations, some of which went to the Americas; but to find such powerful showing of Ashkenazis from Budapest has been a total shock. Since receiving the results I have located my paternal last name--in both Spanish and Hungarian spellings-- in many Hungarian Jewish records, a stunning discovery. I gathered from some sources that these families were originally from Galicia, in the border between Spain and Portugal. My maternal grandfather was Italian, and I expected some show of Italian ancestry, but none appear, leading me to believe that the Italian ancestry was in fact genetically Ashkenazi, Belgian and/or Bavarian, which is what shows. I still wonder why the profile does not show Sephardic ancesry. Perhaps many jews of Spain were Ashkenazi. I assume the absence of Native American or African American representation corresponds to the absence of sample populations in the database. I'll wait and request an upgrade. This has been a fascinating journey.

Comments: The results were helpful to the extent that they helped clarify, somewhat my European/South Asian heritage. Given the historical fact of enslavement, the Portuguese, Spanish and Italian connections make sense. I also have a genetic disorder of Mediterranian origin, which would also explain those findings. I have no idea where the Hungarian and Polish connections came about and given the poor and weak results, I don't know how trustworthy they are. I was very disappointed by DNA tribes apparent lack of an African database. It is very obvious that I am Black so there is no reason why my continential match was ambiguous. I was also disappointed to find that I have a cluster of matches in the middle of the Atlantic ocean and a continent match of 2 for Latin America but no specification as to what the data means or what the connection is if any. I guess my search will continue, but it would be nice if DNA tribes would test me again for FREE once it improves its African database.

Comments: I have no idea what this all means at this point. I was so surprised to see the results of the Native and Global match (ordered first) that I thought DNA Tribes must have mixed up my swabs with someone elses - I was very concerned. DNA Tribes and others suggested that the continent match might help to clarify things. Well, at least I see the genetic data matches my physical appearance, but I still don't understand how the Native and Global matches can be SO strong but the continental match SO weak. Also, I don't understand the repeats. For example, caucasian listed four times under the glbal match? And why is Portuguese lists 3 times unde Native match? I'm still so new to all this so it is extremely difficult for me to understand.

I now find myself wanting to order results from another lab just to confirm the bizarre findings. I compromised by ordering mtDNA and Y chromosome analysis today from another vendor (Family Tree). I figure if there is really that strong a Native American imprint it might show up in those two studies.

Comments: It is interesting that my results mainly represent a map of the Arian Christian conquests of the 4th and 5th centuries at a match level consistant of my last ancestors of those groups joining another untested group at around that time. Im not really surprised I didnt match hui because the group tested among them was not original hui but later mongolian hui. The representative hui from which I am descended date back to the life time of the prophet Muhammad pbuh, and would also match some groups in Tibet that also tend to be a bit more private. Im certain my arab relatives havent been tested publicly. But I have posted the genes on another site, because there is information in them for the benifit of some private test collections.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Since its discovery by Columbus in 1493 Puerto Rico has received a steady stream of colonizers and immigrants from Europe, mostly from Spain, but also from other European countries, with a large percentage being from Ireland and Scotland. Through conventional genealogical methods I traced my origins to persons living in Puerto Rico as far back as 1830. Both my paternal and maternal line consists of people born in, and living uninterruptedly in Puerto Rico until I myself was born in there. Because my father and his brothers still speak Spanish mixed with a large number of words of Taino origin, and because of the phenotype of many of my relatives, I also believe others in my paternal line have probably been there since time immemorial. For these reasons I expected my test results to show a mixture of European and Native American in whatever percentage chance had dealt me.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Thai (51), - Thai (28), - Vietnamese (Hanci, Vietnam) (27), - Malay (Singapore) (21), - Tibetan (Lhasa) (17), - Indonesian (Surabaya, East Java) (14), - Kachari (Northern India) (12), - Chinese (7), - Han (Yan Bian, Northeast China) (6)

Comments: I was surprised by these results as both my mother, and father are mtDNA haplogroup C. My Ancestry by DNA (BGA) test had also surprise me, but the DNA Tribe results blew me away. The Ancestry by DNA (BGA) results were European 74%, East Asian 24%, Sub-Saharan African 4%, and Native American 0%. The DNA Tribes Continent Match results give the highest score, 14 to East and South Asian, a very low score, 1 to European, with a 0 score for Native American and Sub-Saharan African. It is explained in the results for Continent Match that a score of 0-49 is “ambiguous”, and indicates “likely substantial admixture or origins from intercontinental regions (such as North Africa, Southwest Asia, and Siberia)”. I shared these test results with the head of the Puerto Rican genealogical project. She seemed to think the results made sense due to the fact that Native American origins are Asian, and that there are not enough Native American samples for groups like ours. She also had the actual data, my “Autosomal STR Profile” results, as provided by DNA Tribes though OmniPop with results that demonstrate that it's probably just a matter of having the necessary population data for the comparisons, since Native American matches are not absent in the results, Alaska Yupik, and British Columbian costal Salishan being only two amongst others that score high.

Comments: My various Iberian Native matches fit with my Iberian R1b and my French ancestors, most of whom were from the old Aquitaine region, which was anciently Basque. The Hui people of north central China are a Moslem group descended in part from the Mongols, whose ancient territory they occupy. Three times in the 13th century, the Mongols invaded southern Poland, where one of my grandfathers was born. I tested 9 percent East Asian with DNAPrint, and the DNA Tribes result backs that up. I also have gypsy ancestry on my mother's side, indicated by the Tanjore Kallar result. The Brazilian "diaspora" results indicate a broad mixture of European ancestry (Iberian, Polish and German, primarily) with minor non-European components.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): My paternal ancestors were Border Scots, and my maternal ancestors were (mostly) from England. My mtDNA haplogroup is T2, which is most common in the circum-Baltic region (Northern Germany & Poland, Russia, Scandinavia). My yDNA haplogroup is R1b, but with a DYS393 value of 12. My yDNA haplotype scores its highest match frequencies in the YHRD database in areas like the Ukraine, Romania, Macedonia, Greece, Syria and Anatolia. In the FTDNA Haplogroup database, my closest matches are in Siberia, Hungary, Iceland, Scotland and Northern Ireland. My Euro DNA 1.0 test assessed my somatic DNA as 62% Northern European, 22% Eastern Mediterranean and 16% Middle Eastern.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: "Excellent" matches were Iranian 50 and Turkish 41. "Good" matches were Northern Greek 31. "Fair" matches were Southeast Poland 25, Russian 23 and (yay!) Scottish 23. "Weak" matches were pretty much more of the same - Misrahi Jewish (Iran, Iraq) 18, Turkish 18 (a different sample presumably), South Poland 17 and Szekler (Romania) 16.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Virtually the same as the Native Match. "Excellent" matches were Iranian 50 and Turkish 41. "Good" matches were Northern Greek 31. "Fair" matches were Southeast Poland 25, Russian 23 and Scottish 23. "Weak" matches were Misrahi Jewish (Iran, Iraq) 18, Turkish 18, Caucasian (Florida, USA) 18 and South Poland 17.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Continent Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: I didn't order the "Continental Match" test.

Comments: I have serious doubts about the power of the Codis markers, which are taken at random from different portions of one's DNA, to identify lineages or ethnic ancestry. I'm as skeptical as the next guy when I see Anglo-Americans scoring high matches with Han Chinese. However, in my particular case, the DNA Tribes results are remarkably consistent with the geographical range of my DYS393=12 R1b Y-DNA haplotype - and certainly with the known range of R1b ht35 in general. They also accord well with my Euro DNA results, which are nearly 40% Middle Eastern or Eastern Mediterranean - more than twice the level of those admixtures in AncestryByDNA's Irish and Northern European control samples. The Russian and Polish matches are consistent with my T2 mtDNA as well. Even the inclusion of the Scottish "Fair" match had a normalizing effect on my results which made them seem all the more convincing. As one who has theorized, perhaps to the point of embarrassment, about the possible contribution of Roman auxiliaries of Sarmatian, Thracian, Dacian, Danubian, Mesopotamian and Syrian origin to the gene pool of the Border Scots, I am delighted with these results. They may not exactly vindicate my wild theories, but they are certainly not going to hurt them either.

This was confirmed by Ancestry By DNA indicating 91% European and 9% Native American ancestry; and ENFSI STR Database indicating northern European ancestry (8E-13 to 6E-12 top ten matches from Finland, Scotland, Sweden, Netherlands, England, Estonia, Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland, North Ireland. yDNA haplogroup J2b1, mtDNA haplogroup J* for myself and T2 for my paternal aunt.

Comments: Well, there may be some pattern here but I certainly don't see it!?! Help me out if you do. Even though European is only an "ambiguous" continental match at 9, it is a factor higher than Native American at 1. I have absolutely no idea where the "excellent" Turkish 69 and Iranian 40 native and global matches come from, unless this somehow suggests that my near ancestry immigrated more recently (ie 5-10 millenia) through the mideast (My yDNA is J2b1). I don't think I would recommend DNA Tribes to other amateur DNA genealogists until the interpretations rendered are worked out a bit more. For me, anyway, the results (while possibly containing some meaning) are, at this point more confusing than helpful.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): Well, I thought that two of my ancestors may have been asian, I'm not able to see from this test if they were, but what is found is consistant with "pure blooded" arab, if you know history. The test is still new, but the population centers represented are all places that had representatives present in north africa and arabia in the 6th century, though some gene groups may be present in other areas due to a later diaspora, and there also apears to be some credence to the Alexander the Great stories and the King Geezer stories.

Comments: At first I was surprised that no asian results were noted, however my mother's ancestory and on her mother's side was from a tribe that did not marry outside its own tribe as defined at the time a generation or two prior to the life of the prophet muhammad pubh. My father's mother was also from the same family. My father's father and mother's father were from chinese and japanese aristocracy and so it is unlikely that their genetic material would be present in any tested populations. The test only presents the top ten matches, it is possible I have futher fair matches that might indicate some truth to this but I dont know how to get those results at this time. I am still waiting for my DNA print results but it appears that the price of the Euro test has already been refunded to my account and I dont have any matches for african or native american populations.

Comments: The results do not match my actual ancestry at all. Since I am not of British background, statements to the effect of "Native American matches are because the Native Americans may be admixed with British colonists" do not apply, nor can they explain why Native American would be the highest matches in any case. Given all the data here so far I am personally a bit skpetical that these CODIS markers can reliably discriminate between ethnic groups and continental populations with high accuracy. If this belief is wrong, then it must be demonstrated by actual results.

Comments: Obviously the company has no Irish or Norse reference populations, so no findings on that side. The strong matches with South Asian tribals would seem to be a coincidence, but the company suggests this indicates common ancestry which is ancient, with the markers amplified by genetic drift in the isolated Indian tribal populations. This leaves the "Excellent" matches Tatar (Poland) 85, Lithuanian 47, and Belorussian 40, and the "Good" match of Italian 31. I have to say they are right on the mark. Belorussia is just right for deep Slavic ancestry. The Tatar (Poland) matches the surname, ties in with 15th-16th Century Tatars and eliminates the need to consider 13th Century Mongols. And the "Good" match with Italy was expected, as a Roman ancestor is the only good explanation for how my rare J-1 Y-DNA eventually reached southern Poland (i.e., via Germans from Bavaria or the Rhine). Very informative test, in my case.

My mt-DNA haplogroup is H*. My 3% Cherokee ancestry was called East Asia by the DNA Tribes analysis. (And not Native American.) And I had only weak matches with all of DNA Tribes' current native tribes. Like others, I'm hoping I match better and get some 40+ scores as more tribes (native groups) are added to DNA Tribes.

Comments: I don't understand my results at all. I am hoping my mDNA results will shed some light on this. My YDNA tests are m343. I am waiting for a deep clade test results on this too. I also recently ordered DNA Print AncestryByDNA 2.5. I will post those results when the come in. I have never even heard of the Chueta before this. I had to Google them to find out who they are. It would be pretty cool if it is somehow true. I just don't know what this means.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): I had no expected population group affiliations as I have not been able to trace my direct line to the Old World. Extended Y-DNA analysis and Y-SNP analysis suggests that my heritage is in Northwest Europe.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Italian 43, Catanzaro (Italy) 27, Saudi Arabian 17, Sicilian (Italy) 16.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: Italian 43, Catanzaro (Italy) 27, Saudi Arabian 17, Sicilian (Italy) 16. The top 8 match affiliations in both the Native and Global were identical. Only the 9th and 10th position match affiliations changed between the Native and Global.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Continent Match Good/Excellent and Respective MLIs were: No Excellent or Good Continent matches.

Comments: Since I had no expectations I did not receive confirming info or disputing info. Do the test results indicate my ancestors lived in Italy? I don't know the answer to that question but here are the possibilities as I understand them: (1) I do have Italian ancestors and/or (2) I have allele values that are common in Italy but rare elsewhere; and/or (3) I have an overall blend of genes that are most common in Italians. In any case, I found the test informative and worthwhile.

My Expected Results were (from prior knowledge): 30 years genealogical research. Mostly English, some other British including Shetland. Y-DNA Norfolk England; mtDNA Stirlingshire Scotland. Autosomal DNAPrint 97% European, 2% Native American, 1% East Asian. Have documented Native American ancestry.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective Numeric MLIs were: Yemeni (Saudi Penninsula) 40, Egyptian 32, Saudi Arabian 30
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Good/Excellent and Respective Numeric MLIs were: Yemeni 40, Egyptian 32, Saudi Arabian 30
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Continent Match Good/Excellent and Respective Numeric MLIs were: European (including Saudi etc. matches?) 314, East and South Asian 17, Native American 10, Sub-Saharan 0

Comments: The actual results are inconsistent with anything I know of my ancestry either via paper genealogy of extensive DNA testing with other measures. I guess I am an anomaly.

My Expected Analsyis Results were (from prior knowledge): My family history and 30 years of traditional genealogy research would lead me to expect a totally European analysis result from this new atDNA test as I did with the previous DNAPrint atDNA SNP BGA testing. However, I also somewhat expected that in addition to DNATribes "matches" of typical European profiles that there might possibly be some Asian matches since my prior DNAPrint test assayed my atDNA to be 93% European and 7% Asian. The Asian markers detected by the DNAPrint test are apparently from very old and ancient sources as there is no family oral history or any paper trail evidence of any kind of any Asian or Native American ancestry in my family tree from my 30 years of traditional genealogy research.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Native Match Good/Excellent and Respective Numeric MLIs were: None.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Global Match Good/Excellent and Respective Numeric MLIs were: None.
My Actual DNA Tribes Analysis Results - Continent Match Good/Excellent and Respective Numeric MLIs were: None.

Comments: Apparently my atDNA (autosomal DNA) STR (CODIS) marker allele pairs are rare compared to what is now available in the current DNATribes reference database. Possibly as more European native populations and country/global populations are added to the database some possibly meaningful Good or Excellent correlations will be found in the future with this newly introduced atDNA STR (CODIS) marker analysis/testing product. Editors note: If your genealogy is predominantly European you may wish to run your atSTR CODIS alleles through the European STR-Base.org database and see what matches you get there, as an additional, second analysis and use of your new atSTR CODIS data. Others may wish to explore processing their CODIS markers through the CODIS database maintained by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Centre of Forensic Sciences Population Studies Data Centre.
