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

Hey Sherry!

Thanks for sharing this! It was helful to see this information.

This regards to this statement:

"At one extreme of scores, some sample profiles can obtain very high scores when they are very typical of one region/group and not others. At the other extreme, a person whose ancestry was evenly distributed amongst all major regions would obtain a score of "1" for all regions. However, most individuals have substantial genetic connections to particular region or regions of regions of varying strengths."

I'm at the other extreme - my results: Sub-saharan african.1.6, Asia Minor 1, European 1, East Asian 1, Arab/North african 0.6. Everything else, very low or zero.

My husband and I are always joking about whether or not there are extraterrestials out there. I keep saying it's possible, he says, no way no how. I read him this last statement "However, most individuals have substantial genetic connections to particular region or regions of regions of varying strengths." and said, "you see, I'm that extraterrestial you keep denying exists!" hahaha...
