African American DNA Research Forum
I have a couple general question perhaps you can help me with.
I have tested with a company, both Y-DNA (I haplogroup) & mtDNA (H haplogroup). My resultant Haplogroups and matches do not show a connection to the Motherland (Africa).
Question...What's up? Is this because of a "limited database" with few AA's participating and the countries (matches) associated with these groups just happen to be predominately non-African? The Y-DNA results came back yesterday for the 25 Marker test and the matches fell into line with the 12 Marker results.
Question....Is this situation "normal" for folks who have almost always been identified as Black/Negro/Colored, with the occasional Mulatto/white designations on Census records?
I know/understand that these tests are for only one direct ancestoral line. So as I look at myself, what are these results telling me?
