DNA Fingerprint AND AncestrybyDNA 2.5 (Whole DNA test) Can't Post

Siyo Nigada,

I just got my results from the Whole DNA test, and I've done the DNA Fingerprint, etc. so I was wondering if anyone else has done both and how do the results line up? I know one's more on ethnicities without percentages, but I'm curious about what folks experience has been? Mine was exceptionally accurate, I felt. The percentage breakdown came out with 92% Indo-European, 4% Native American and 4% Subsaharan African. The test I did doesn't separate out between Middle Eastern ancestry and Euro-American, but I understand there's another version that does. I found both tests to be really helpful, as I'd been searching down a particular line related to our story of Cherokee heritage and was at the point where I'd narrowed it down to one ancestor, who'd been reported as born in Ireland on all census records. The genealogist I'd been working with believed he'd located her brother, but I felt he was likely a cousin and not a brother based upon some things not adding up. When the Whole DNA test results were emailed to me, it speculated that a great great grandparent had one NA parent, which would fit my hypothesis that these two people were cousins, not siblings. Very interesting...

Wishing you all the best in 2009!

Interesting Marge, and good question
I have had both tests done, and found the DNA Fingerprint more enlightning. Most of my Whole DNA showed European. I have a lot of English/Welch, Irish, Scots, French
that I know of. I have been told I have Native American on both sides in at least 4 generations. but that must be in my other in the Whole. Native American was not specified. The DNA Fingerprint does show Michigan Native American which is Probably Cherokee matching, with my Fathers proported Grandfather which his Y is J2 , Middle East MATching and showing in Some Cherokee as well.
You can get more interesting info by exploring known surname DNA projects to see where they are from.
and your MTDNA (mothers matralineal tree) or your Fathers Mtdna. My fathers was K (matches the Ice Man)
Catch you later

DJ, Marge,

I know the Michigan N/A on my Fingerprint is Cherokee from paper trail research. Since it goes back six generations, I was a bit surprised that it even showed up. But this makes me even more of a fan of DNA Fingerprint. My sixth gr-grandmother Betsy Walker was full-blooded Cherokee according to research. Her daughter Elizabeth m. Edward (Ned) Leatherwood, and their daughter Elizabeth or Rebecca Leatherwood married into my Hyde line. Many of the Leatherwoods (Walker descendants and others) still live in Swain Co., Va, though we do not personally know them. Many of their stories confirm Cherokee ancestry and/or show N/A in their photos.

Is this too much off topic? I'm pretty new at this.

I also a a Michigan NA match, I was unaware of any Native blood in my family till a few years ago, I did a whole DNA test around that time, which showed 89% European and 11% Native American. I believe I have Cherokee on my mothers side, Sioux on my fathers side, and a possibility of Iroquois.

Anne ,
Glad you are here, it is ok to jump in anywhere you want to post, This format lends itself to just making your thoughts and questions flow. In my case one thought leads to another with I am posting.
Also you can upload pictures, charts etc into a post or copy and paste.
Your story is an interesting one.
I looked back at my DNA Fingerprint and Realized that Michigan Native American is #2 on my top 20, with Portugal being my #1.
My Ancestry DNA 2.5 though showed me with less than possible 5 percent NA and mostly North European. Could have something to do with how they come to their conclusions . In Fact the way it stated was that there wasn't any but the unknown 5 Percent is something right?
Could be this occurred since my Fathers line is said to be Cherokee (and probably that tribe since the lineage Ican get to SC abt Rev War or 1790.
This line also has a 4g Grandmother with Green. In some comments I have seen on DNA 2.5 there could be as much as a 20 percent margin of error that is high in their conclusions. needs more refining in the tests as I understand it. but interesting to get all the same. My mothers mothers said to have some NA cherokee and Choctaw, prob.
the tribes as they were in Alabama a few generations. My Mtdna has come back on the complete tests as H, it has shown in some Cherokee. (My Grandmothers families (maternal) has a number of families that came from Early Land grants in the Chowan Precinct of NC the Roanoke River Lost Colony maybe?? Bonner was one of the surnames there. and Carney with Choctaw, My Scot Irish folks are from Border, NC/Sc Cape Fear Scots. The Adams are from Camden SC area of Juan Pardo Expeditions

as well as J2 like in my Fathers Y. My particular mutations though in my Mtdna still indicate the Canary Islands. The deeper aspect of it. H has a lot of variables I have noticed
in folks. my H only has 2 exact matches in mitosearch (a database of mtdna) www.mitosearch.org.See also a post I made on H I am going to add some links of Interest.

There is one also being kept by Charles Kerchner http://www.worldfamilies.net/...dex.php?topic=2851.0---------------------------------------------------------------

A lot of interesting into to look at.

Here is a glossary of DNA terms from his pages http://www.clanlindsay.com/...tic_dna_glossary.htm
My Papertrail has me with a lot of Scot, Irish, English, and a few lines of French Hugenot.
The Scot Irish didn't mind intermarrying with the Indians as much as the English. nor did the French. The Scots were heavily involved in trade with the Indians in the South East.

Here is an interesting link for The Genetic Genealogist http://www.thegeneticgenealogist.com/
