In Response To: Re: DNA Tribes Explanation ()
Oh.....but you know, if your DNA Tribes scores were around 1 for Euro, Afr., and I think NA was it? Then you are probably like Skip (Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.) on the African American Lives DVD. I'm thinking you will probably qualify for the Euro refinement test. I didn't know that someone can't be more than 45% African though. Did you have Native American too on your test or no? Also, if your numbers were roughly equaly for the Euro and Afr. Then the NA will tip the scale so that you should be able to take it. I think that would really help. Of course the French play a heavy role in the DNA of AFrican Americans/Creoles on Louisiana, but we often forget the role of the Spanish too! And.....since you're able to document your Spaniard Ancestor, you may find even more Spanish than French, though the French culture is more prominent in your family. You never know! All this stuff is so exciting!
