Thank you Melvin!!!
My DNA results, the Admixture Test, with it's percentages (%) only helps to confirm relationships that have been researched and documented.
Some documrntation of my suspected Native American ancestry is to be found at the URL below.
Click on the letters L, M & R. Under "L" you will see the LaForce's, Candis, Hannah & Betty, these are my 5th, 6th & 7th great-grandmothers. Under the letter "M" you will see Rachel McKee, my 4th great-grandmother and under the letter "R" is Susannah Melinda Reed, my 3rd great-grandmother. This is just one piece in the documentation which supports my research and possible NA ancestry on/in just this one family line. I don't know, but there may be other lines with NA ancestry. Anyway, my NA percentage is just 3% according to AncestryByDNA and their admixture test.
Susannah Reed marries Lewis Adams in Urbana, Ohio on 1 Jan 1816 and that starts my documented AA Adams lineage for my mother's lines.
So, like you, I claim ALL parts of my documented ancestral lines, regardless of DNA percentages.
