Re: CHAVIS, John
In Response To: Re: CHAVIS, John ()

I just did an Ancestry by DNA and am waiting on the results anxiously. As a fellow Chavis descendant, I am curious to know what your results were. Some historical accounts say that the Chavises were Black and White, no know native ancestry.
==============================================================

Hello,

Be careful in the interpetation of your admixture results as they relate to you.
Attaching a particular ancestry to a Surname from Y or mtDNA ancestry to the admixture test may be hazardous :)

Many of my maternal Adams relatives swear we have a "strong" Native American history. I've traced my DIRECT Adams lines back to 1768 and can't find a concrete NA connection. I have found POSSIBLE NA connections in some of my other ancestral lines, but nothing in my Y or mtDNA or Thomas surnamed relations.

My Y and mtDNA results lead to Euro haplogroups (I1a-Norse & H3), my Admixture says 49% Euro, 48% SS African & 3% NA.
