Looks like North African such as Egyptian or Tunisian, Denise . . . ? You get 1/2 of the markers from your father and 1/2 from your mother which is only 1/4 from each grandparents. I like to look at each allele since it is Mendelian. Some people do not like it, but I think everybody does it.

(are you thinking of getting your full mtDNA done too)

The Phoenicians invented the alphabet, and taught several cultures their advanced system of writing. The Phoenicians extended their influence across North Africa and settled Carthage in the modern nation of Tunisia, as a trading post. The word Carthage means "new city". The Phoenicians chose Carthage because of its location in the center of North Africa, a short distance away from Sicily and the Italian Peninsula. (http://www.mrdowling.com/609-testr.htm)
First writings in the cities of Uruk and Susa (cuneiform writings). Hieroglyphs in Egypt.
Naqada culture on the Nile, 4000?3000 BC. First hieroglyphs appear thus far around 3500 BC as found on labels in a ruler's tomb at Abydos

Autosomal Results

Thank-you Greg for your help. I do plan to get my full sequence. I'll let you know when I order it.

You are welcome. Denise.
My top Omnipop watch was the same as yours (small database)
Tunisian (59)
Portuguese (6)

Notice how the African American markers change when you take away or add certain results. I took one test which took away all of my Afro-American markers. Maybe, this is common with admixtures. I wonder if Ana get Tunisian as the top marker too. This might mean something.

DNAtribe will take your markers and match them against their database. I tried it, and the results were a little different but inline with ABDNA. Maybe, their biggest error is database that is too small.

My DNATribe results were the following:
High Resolution Native Population Match
El-Minia, Egypt 753.1 21.6408046
Tunisian 287.6 8.264367816

Hi, Guys:

I am still waiting on my MEGA results so I have not ordered my CODIS markers, yet.

Tunisia, huh?

I am as admixed as they come. Will hopefully order them after the BIG one finally gets here. It is one month late already.

From my muscle type, I suspected that my people were long distance walking people. There are also biochemical reasons for this. I find it difficult to run a mile, but walking 25 miles did not seem as difficult. I usually feel better after a walk too. We still like to travel. I think there is a lot of information in autosomes. We just do not know about them yet.

I agree with you Greg. I'm not a long distance runner. However, I enjoy my 2-3 mile walks. I use to run short distance quite fast. Never enjoyed long distance. Horticulture runs in my vains also. We bought a small acreage 10 years ago and I never knew how much I enjoyed farming and watching little seedlings grow. Its in my blood. I'm really liking the Tunisia connection. I have another picture to share with the group. Its of my g-grandfather whom I had never seen before. My auntie ask me to have it restored and its simply beautiful. I can't wait to share it with you Greg and Ana. Have a wonderful weekend.

I think I also have tame character. I have a tendency to move away wild or mean behavior. I thought out this when I saw a television program on the genetic origins of dogs. I think character has something to do with genetics. Still, some people disagree.

I look forward to seeing the photograph.

Funny, I ran track in high school, too. 100 yd dash was my thing. Also like horticulture and art. Would love to see your great grandfather's picture.

autosomal markers

I laughed when I read your messages. I always felt that my ancestresses must have spent long stretches without much food. I inherited the most efficient metabolism which turns every morsel into fat for use at more lean times. I am from January first to December 30th on a diet good for a rabbit.

I was taught at University that the family in which a child is born is paramount in the formation of his personality. However, when I started teaching, and with the passing of the years, I realized that family, society are important however children are born with inherited traits.

Sorry about my poor English. Catherine

I guess no hypothesis is perfect . . .

This hypothesis is supported by the fact that missense mutations in mtDNA protein genes show regional specificity. Missense mutations are prevalent in the ATP6 gene in the arctic, in the cytb gene in Europe, and in the COI gene in Africa. Mutations in different ND genes also show regional correlation (Mishmar et al., 2003). . . .
