  • DNA and Picataway Convoy Indian Tribe

    Are there any Picataway Indians out there who are looking for a match either with living relatives or their ancestry?

    What has been you finding with DNA test results?

    Seems like you could contact the tribe(s?) themselves and see if they are willing to go through DNA testing to see if the Amount of Amro-Indian blood is detectable, or that they share the same markers as other algonquian tribes.

    They may be especialy positive to this in light of the above article.

    Rival Piscataway communities could also be a source of DNA:

      Hello IZZY,

      Thanks for your reply. I am not sure you are a rival or friendly. Thanks for the links to the Indian News and the separate article.

      I do plan to send a sample for DNA testing. As I conduct more research I would like to e-mail you with my findings that you may shed more light on.

      Again thanks.

        Harold,

        Rival I am not.

        It would be intresting to the rest of the world to solve such questions. More importantly, you have a claim to an ancestry. It could be to your benifit to intreast a real researcher in your home state who would give impartial results on the matter (so it will stand up to peer review).

        Maybe a "tribe" project could be orginized with Family tree dna instead of a "Family" project. Since your Y dna would not change much in 200 years, you could rpove common linniage, then compare existing samlpes to other groups of Amro-Indians.

        Anyhow it would be best if you could intrest Family tree Dna that htis would be a decent moneymaker for them, and see how it goes.

          Zizzy,

          Your suggestion is well received. I plan to do as you suggested; get with other members of the tribe to work with Family Tree DNA. Hopefully get to the bottom line.

          The second link you provided regarding a "rival tribe" was a rebuttle to another document referred to as "Brown's Testimony."

          By chance do you have a link to Brown's testimony?

          Again, thanks.

            Harold,

            The best I could find on the net was this site. if you e-mail them they may have the full and complete text of Browns testimony.

              Has the Indian Nation in general given thought to the future when more and more people are proving high percentages of Indian DNA and what that will mean to the term being 'Native American'.

                Your so right! I'm Taino. from Boriken(Puerto Rico) In the island a professor did a MTDNA test to volunteers. His test has proven that the Taino people who first greeted Columbus was never really extinct. The DNA found in Puerto rico is higher then anyone thought to be. Yes. Indian people are beginning to find out more about the DNA . Most of all the latin population. That is because North America/South America were all connected. The spaniard conquered many latin region that were once populated with native's but in a way there are tribes out there still living from the earth and customes but then there are many that are mixed blood like myself. The answer to your question..Is yes. Indian people are aware!

                  Marysol:

                  Are you a member of a any surname project group? If not, I would like to invite you to join our own Puerto Rican Project. It is a geographic study within the surname groups. If you look under P on the FTDNA surname groups, you will find the information re the project, there.

                  Regards,
                  Ana
