Re: The Danger In Taking A DNA Test

I took a DNA test a few months ago and am still awaiting my results. I was always told I was African, European and Native American. My reason for taking the test is out of pure curiosity regarding my percentage of each and particularly my Native American part because of membership possibilities as a descendant of a Seminole Freedmen. I initially had my test done by Ancestry DNA 2.0. A month or so later thay wrote me and wanted to retest me on their 3.0 test performed by DNA Print Genomics in Sarasota Florida. According to the Ancestry DNA 2.0 company, my DNA was highly heterogygous therefore this was the reason why they sent it to Florida. According to them my DNA is very challenging because I share common genetic information with multiple populations ie; African, Native American, European and Asian. I find it most interesting because race has nothing to do with who we are. We are who we are because of our ancestors no matter what race they were. Debra
