  • American Indian Admixture in White America

    Iam requesting this category again.Now I have 22 matches Mitochondria J1c5
    No male to test.Only 1 person
    Identify themselves out of thousands.Most people don't seem to know how to use DNA testing results,Having not much instruction/permission.I have genealogy to 1500s.When will
    the Autosomal tests separate the
    Y FROM MITDNA?

    If you are looking for paternal matches, they should show up as a tab in the Family Finder section. Also, if you have a match to someone definitely identified as maternal, you could do a "not in common with" search of your other matches.

      Autosomal DNA tests don't test Y-DNA or mtDNA. You have to do a separate test for each type.

      What do you mean?

        Are you perhaps asking about phasing? You will need atDNA from at least one parent to hope to separate shares from each parent.That is how I interpret your question.

        mtDNA can suggest American Indian connections (but do not prove), while only two Y haplos are suspected to be from groups of men that settled where people were later known as American Indian.

        All claims to provide this AI identification with DNA are sheer bunk, these are cultural definitions, not genetic. I am responding to this very old thread by reflex.

          In the autosomal test section, you can sometimes determine if the DNA pertains to the maternal or paternal side...

            That's true. Only the Y DNA test and the mtDNA test (should do full FMS) give the haplogroups.

            Autosomal testing with work can separate the maternal matches from the paternal matches but autosomal testing doe not give the haplogroups which many times will suggest NA ethnicity.

                A lot of scots in the American colonies intermarried with Cherokees.

                  Barbara, how far away is your closest library? Many libraries provide free internet access.

                    An mtdna match's brother's Y-DNA probably won't have anything to do with your genealogy unless you are just trying to help them out with their family tree. Her brother gets his Y-DNA from his father while you say you are DNA matching her through mtDNA so you are matching through her mother's side so totally separate sides of her family. What is your mtDNA haplogroup?

                      Yes to library,only allowed an hour. Re: brothers ydna,I've been doing my tree research by computer & other volunteers, 20 yes.I have Scottish in my tree, his sister confirmed Scots dna, and not many men w/ his ydna tested. Not done yet,still working on identification of the children listed on Dawes roll.I'm just saying many ways to skin the Genealogy tree. Don't give up.
