Testing Paternal Aunt's DNA
Hi List and Toot,
I have read most of the past postings and am still fuzzy about it all and have a couple of questions.
I intend to have my DNA tested and would like to have a list of those companies that provide the most in-depth analysis...number of markers, etc.. as well as ethnic profile AA, NA, A, EU.
I assume that I will only receive the maternal ancestors, mother's mother's, mother's ancestry.
I want to know about my father's ethnic ancestry, but not having a brother or uncle from that side, I wonder if my 90 year old aunt's (my father's sister)DNA would reveal some information? My father and aunt's maternal grandmother was reputed Chinese or half Chinese. Would this ethnicity show up?
My father and aunt's father was English,Black and Indian. Will any of his DNA show up in her DNA sample? Maybe the multi-ethnic test?
I am anxious to get started immediately, given my aunt's age. Which companies do you suggest as best for the information I'm seeking?
