    I'm Brazilian and it's quite normal for us, south americans, to get north amerindian instead, I got 12% and only 2% south america.

    There's nothing wrong there, after all native american migrated south from siberia/alaska.

    Thank you very much for that. I recently found a close cousin who is Mexican. Most of my cousin matches that are Peruvian are all distant. So it was very confusing when Maya kept coming up. I don't know about the y-dna except that I ran my dna through Morley and it said the y-dna was A1b1b (if that rings a bell). My birth mother's side has Choctaw and Powhatan blood that I found through the family tree research.
    I wish I could research my birth father's tree, but that'll never happen.
    Thank you though.

    I answered your query in your equivalent thread in the "myOrigins Basics" section.

    started a topic I Was TOLD I Was Peruvian, But...

    I Was TOLD I Was Peruvian, But...

    I recently uploaded my raw dna to ftdna and gedmatch and everywhere else I could find lol. I am adopted and only am in contact with my birth mother, the European side of my dna. My birth father AND his entire side of his family want nothing to do with me. So I'll never fully know that side other than what I was told once by him via a short phone call. He said the whole family is Peruvian.

    Here on ftdna it says my South American percentage is 3. My North and Central American is 43. I know you may get less than you really are, but that would still mean I'm still more something else other than Peruvian, right?

    Gedmatch is so confusing I can't make sense of it.
    If anyone would be willing to help me with that I'd gladly show you results from any calculator or just give you my number for anyone interested in helping there.

    I mean, does this mean I'm not that Peruvian after all?
