Re: DNA Diagram
In Response To: Re: DNA Diagram ()

Hello Mel,

I like your expalnation as to how you arrived at your POSSIBILITIES.

And especially you stating this is your theory and here is the likelihood for its probability. It appears a key factor in "how many genrations" is the number of markers tested in the DNA sample. I'm sure Dr. Kittles tested the maximum of markers in his sample as testing permitted.

The chart at the URL below may be of some help in determining the MRCA - Most Recent Common Ancestor.

For what it is worth.....IMHO...I think your genealogical timelines, with your test results and the history of Angola and the U.S. slave trade give you a pretty sound basis for your conclusions.........IMHO :)
