In Response To: Re: Question about DNA Admixture Tests ()
Maybe and idon't know but just maybe since your sister will be getting her dna which is XX.One of the X'swill come from your mothers's mother's maternal line and she will get the other X from your father's mother's,mother's side.
On the contrary,you as a male will get an XY chromosome.
The X will come from your mother's mother's maternal line and you will get the Y chromosome strictly from your father's father's father's so forth.So in my opinion that is the difference in ancestry percentages. Your sister is not receiving anything from the father's Ychromosome but you are yet you are not recieving the X chromosomefrom father's mom,mom,momand etc....
Please correct me if iam wrong:)
Now if you have another brother and both of u share the exact same parents then iwould like to know if the percentages resullts would read the same or differently since you and your brother would carry both XY from the same mother and father.
PS please correct me if necessary:)
