Re: Question about DNA Admixture Tests

Hi, Mel, I've just gotten in on this conversation but I can see your query has received some excellent responses. Just let them percolate for awhile.

1. The admixture test uses autosomal dna. This is the dna that makes you Melvin and not your brother.

2. Every conception is a new crapshoot for what dna the child inherits. The only exception for this is in identical twins, etc., which, after all, are the result of ONE conception.

3. I think the posting about the twins in Britain is a perfect example. This happens all the time and this one was exceptional ONLY because they were twins. But, fraternal twins are no more alike than any other two siblings. I knew a "European" family with some Portuguese ancestry where one or two were blond with blue eyes, one was redheaded and one was often mistaken as Hawaiian. All whole siblings.

4. My sister and I have some resemblances, but we can tell you which of us got Daddy's nose and who got Mother's and the same shuffling is true of the dna that is not visible on the surface.
