Re: DNA Tribes
In Response To: Re: DNA Tribes ()

Maybe DNA Tribes only looks at one specific lineage, through your mtDNA, and that line happens to descend from someone who is not African???>>>

I should not respond late at night to postings, because I was thinking that Tonya's test was about only ONE line, such as mtDNA. That is why I responded to her that it was not the totality of who she is, oppps that test is supposed to be about all of you. Today I went to look at the samples of the results at DNA Tribes and they all seem to be that way, such as on the Native match a rather compact group of countries. What happens when one has say African and European ancestry. If there was a sample at the site like that, I did not see it?

I certainly do not know much about autosomal testing, but would be concerned if my autosomal results confined me to one region only. I would probably have genes from vastly different regions of the world. I saw one African-American example that showed a person in the USA that matched African and African-American only. This is puzzling to me too.
