New 23andMe test results

I received results from 23andMe on one of my siblings. Needless to say the admixture results were very similar to mine. The difference is that their African and European is a little higher than mine, but the East Asian is lower than mine.The interesting fact is that the African population match is closer to the South African San and Khoe people where mine is Western African. According to Dr. McDoanld mine Western African is Mandenka.

The sibling's results were not a surprise because about 4 years ago a relative showed a Y DNA match with a "Coloured" from South Africa. The connection was thru a paternal great grandfather. I also have a female ancestor who belongs to the L1a,L01, L0a, MTDNA group which could have a connection to Mozambique. Interesting how new information can verify old information. It makes me wonder why some folks are still questioning the usefulness or validity of DNA testing.
