Re: Haplogroup E3a (M2)
In Response To: Re: Haplogroup E3a (M2) ()
My dad recently sent his dna to the national geographic genealogy project and discovered that his Y chromosome is also in haplogroup E3a. He was adopted in California and does not know his biological father or mother. The really interesting complication is that he appears 100% ethnically European. There is the possibility that his male ancestors were North African, but there were very few people of those ethnic groups in California at the time. My speculation is that his father was probably 1/2 or 1/4 African-American. Are there any other plausible explanations? I would also like to know if there is a dna test that can accurately determine percentages of genetic contributions from different ethnic groups.
