    Great Smile!

    Sonia,

    Thanks for posting this, it is a pleasure to view her smiling face.

    The spontaneous reaction from Maureen as she entered the office: "Now there's a Native American face!"

    She looks 60's-70's.

    Sonia.

    I can't beleive your grandmother was 101 years old. My daughter guessed maybe late 60's! I said middle 70's. Wow! Nature was kind to her. I read your private message and thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.

    Trying a smaller image

    Perhaps the other image was too large. I attempted a smaller one, but I think the dial up connection is too slow for the alloted 30 seconds, so you can see Gram at http://members.aol.com/scabbegen/Gram.jpg

    Thanks,
    Sonia

    Didn't Work

    Okay, all advice welcomed. I think my little old machine couldn't handle being asked to upload something. When I try again, should the attachment be seen in the post preview?

    TIA,

    Attempting Gram's Photo Attachment

    Hi Folks,

    My lesson plans are written for the next 2 weeks, so I thought I'd give a try at attaching Gram's photo. This was a photo of her for her 101st birthday, celebrated on January 21, 2006. I'm not sure if this is going to work, so I may be asking for advice on how to upload a picture soon.

    As a background reminder, her ABDNA 2.5 was 82% SSA and 18% IE, but she responded, "I don't care what any test says, I do have Indian in me." Somewhere in the archives are her unusual DNA Tribes results that were more Asian and East Indian than African. I'll try and get permission from my nephew to post a pic of his son & Gram (the 5 generation spread). His son is 1/8 Chinese and that didn't show up in his results either.

    The old phenotype thread. Here is a pic of my paternal grandmother. I don't know how to make it larger. If my 17% Native American is correct, then she must be about 68%, more or less. That's because my mom has zero, and my father's father was Czech.

    Hi Burto,
    Could be anything then. That name is popular. It's a Greek name, but is found in many European ethnic groups.
    There are 3 Alex's (Alexander) in my family tree.
    Sorry.

    Hi,
    Here is a bigger picture of Mum...all comments welcome please about possible backgrounds of her US father.
    AbDNA score 89% European 11% East Asian (Native American 10% two times less likely)
    Euro score 65% Northern European (which includes Spain to DNAP), 12% Med and 22% South Asian.
    DNAT top match Buenos Aires, world match highest, Medittereanean,
    She has very high India and Indian tribal matches.
    Highest "Native American" match to Lumbee with 4.02 then Mexican (Chihuahua) 3.98 on extended report plus numerous Hispanic matches ranging from 15.67 to about 4.00.
    A few high India matches too.
    I've not done any tests yet. Mum yet to do Euro 2.0...does anyone think it's worth it?
    Thanks.

    Have you tested?

    Burto.

    Have you tested yourself and I have mised it? If you did what were your results? Too many threads to go through. Could you repost them.

    Burto's mom

    If you at least know her fathers first name, that could be a big clue as to what her American fathers ancestry was. Was his name Tony? Most likely Italian (Anthony), maybe even Spanish (Antonio). Was his name Aaron or Ari? Most likely Jewish. If Patrick, then most likely Irish. If it was Lou, it could be anything, from Luis (Spanish) to Luigi (Italian) or Louis (French or generic American), even a short form of Llewellyn, which is Welsh. Even the generic 'Bob' could actually have been Roberto (spelled that way in both Spanish & Italian).

    My guess is her father was an Italian-American.

    And your sig says her top match is Buenos Aires, and that city is largely populated by people of Italian & Spanish descent (and some from from many other places).
    People from Buenos Aires speak Spanish, but with an Italian accent.

    The picture is small and dim. Could you post it as a good sized .jpeg attachment?

    Hi,
    Just curious to know if anyone thinks there is anything in Mum's Asian results based on her picture?
    Does anyone think she looks of NA heritage (through her 11% EA score) or of Roma/India descent (through 20% of her make up being South Asian)?
    She is 50% English so I know she doesn't look 100% but she's not 100% English rose either.Is the picture clear enough?
    Thanks.
