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

Hi Tonya,

Iam from Louisiana and Louisiana is known for its creole, french,native american,european ancestry. Inever realized untill imoved away from Louisiana that alot of blacks in other parts of the US are not use to seeing Light skinned black peopleLolololololo. Many ofthem immediately assume that u are not Black or that u may be BI racial-a product of 1 white parent and 1 black parent. Even now Iam in Mississippi, and ihave had at least on three separate occasions some one ask me what iam and i say Black.

Now in regards to your question about African American Ancestry inmy opinon a person will get more for their money. I saw the tv special with Henry Louis Gates and he went to Ancestry by DNA and African Ancestry too for his research.

Please correct me if iam wrong but this is what i saw.

In my opinion and from what i saw on the Gates special,by testing with African Ancestry a person will still get specific results even if the person doesn't have any African Ancestry in them, but he/she tested for African Ancestry. African Ancestry will give you the results of what they find even though it may be from Europe. If I am wrong about this, will some one please correct me.
