Re: Haplogroup L3
In Response To: Re: Haplogroup L3 ()

If you are referring to the USA Today article that quote was a misquote. I tested an African American line---my maternal line.

The reporter did ask about other aspects of my research, and I referred to my Native ancestry that I have extensive documentation on pertaining to my dad's side. The reporter got somewhat fascinated by my ancestors from the Dawes records and other Indian Territory records, and he reported that I used the DNA to prove native ancestry. This was incorrect information.

With National Genographic project, I took the matrilineal test and am awaiting results from African Ancestry's test as well. This was also a testing that I did on the maternal line.

There are some tests that are out there to reflect Native ancestry, but my testing was for my African lineage.
