No, I'm not saying that. But a few of the same DNA haplogroups found in Asia are also found in Native Americans.

Yes, that is probably the case with your results. But if a person has a significant East Asian result, I'd look to see if there were some Chinese railroad workers in the neighborhood in the late 1800s.
