  • Do these Eurogenes Admixture Proportions prove or disprove family oral history?

    I am trying to prove or disprove family oral history of Native American ancestry. I found these Eurogenes Admixture utilities at GEDmatch.com that seem to show my DNA may have Native American DNA, but I would like to ask those who have more expertise if they would look at these attachments and tell me if they prove or disprove my families oral history of Native American ancestry? Thanks for any help.

    I'm no expert, but I can give you a bit of comparison. I read somewhere that not finding any chromosome with a value over 4 in a particular genetic group (e.g., Amerindian) makes it more likely to be noise. I was inclined to believe it was noise in yours, but you do have a bit of a spike near the end on the last chromosomes. I guess it could go either way. How far back is this alleged Native American ancestor?

    My g-grandmother was part--not full, like I was told--Cherokee in the NC mountains. Ancestry DNA places my NA ethnicity at 1%, and my Amerindian values on K13 are:

    -, 1.6, 0.7, 3.4, 5.9, -, 1.5, 4.8, 4.4, -, -, -, -, 3.5, 4.7, 0.4, -, -, 3.5, -, 2.7, 5.7

      Can you say something about what your oral history says?

      Thanks,

        migoblu - On your Mother's matrilineal side, mother-to- mother-to-mother back in time, it is easy to determine Native American ancestry because they have their specific Haplogroups: A,B,C,D and X and some sub-groups.

        YOU can have the mtDNA test at FTDNA to prove/disprove NA ancestry on your mother's side because you carry your mother's mtDNA.

        If your Father can test, he carries HIS mother's mtDNA.

        Males receive mtDNA from their mothers, but they cannot pass it down. It can only be passed down through the female line.

        If you and your father test for mtDNA that would solve the question of two of the four lines in question.
