Hey that's right! You guys are cousins!! You know, I'm going to write Lucas at DNA Tribes right now because a friend (acquaintance) told me you can calculate it out. I'm not the math wizard, but when I gave my numbers he said it's roughly those numbers that I posted. I'll post it here when I get a response back from Lucas. Also, one thing I'm not sure about, on all my scores my highest was like 56 and the other "strong" ones were in the 30's and 40's, yet when I look at some of the samples they're like really high scores. Is this due to too much admixture? I'm going to double check with LUcas, but I'm pretty certain that applying the right mathematical formula can yield us the same, if not more accurate info than Ancestry by DNA. Both tests are autosomal SNP tests. So, it follows that we should be able to calculate our "percentages" as well, except that instead of 4 categories there are 12. Chris, you're a math wizard. Do you know how my friend could have calculated it??? Have you tried to calculate your scores?? Tonya?? Oh and yes Debra, you're right! You found Chris!! You guys are cousins!! :-) smile!
