  • adopted..what test do I need

    I am an adopted female. I was told that my birth Mother was Irish and my birth Father was East Indian. What test should I order to find out if this is really my true ethnicity?

    ANY Idea where this happened you need a locational study for that area.
    and any idea who the parents actually were

      It is impossible for you to determine the ethnicity of your birth father through a Y-chromosome test, unless you know of a blood brother who can be tested.

      It is also very difficult to determine the specific ethnicity of a birth mother through an mtDNA test, especially if she was European (since the 7 mtDNA markers for Europeans are indistinguishable on the basis of ethnicity).

      There is a test (on another website) that purports to determine the percentage of ancestry (e.g. 50% European, 50% Asian), but the test is notoriously inaccurate and may not give you any certainty.
