  • Dna Tribes and Known ancestry

    I decided to do this topic because, I noticed alot of you
    have family trees that show Irish,Britsih, Spanish,Mexican etc
    background, that are not on your tribes results.
    How close are your results to your known ancestry?

    My moms father had an Irish surname
    and mother's dad's surname was British,.
    On my dad's, dad's, side we had a French surname that can be traced to the
    1800's.
    My dad's mom had a German surname . She was born in Curacao
    Netherlands Antilles.
    All other surnames on the family tree were traced back to Denmark.

    My tribes score,although I am happy with the results.
    Showed highest matches being Flemish,Polish,Russian,Portuguese,Mestizo.
    My Native Tribes test showed mainly Andean matches.
    Suprisingly no England,Irish or German scores.
    Maybe this is not on their database yet.
    ancestry by dna showed 12% Native American which I still cant trace.
    although we do have alot of the same exact names on the Final Dawes Roll
    in Oklahoma. This is where my mom's family is from.
    I am thinking of applying for a CDIB card if I can pinpoint a roll #

    I have tested 6 of 7 siblings in my family and none has gotten a 'Top 20' match to our 50% Jewish ancestry. On my Extended Report I found my first Jewish match at approximately 1/3 of the score of my top matches or too small to appear in a regular report. I am not sure if that could be made into a rule to guide interpretation.

    While it is amusing to be likened to the Roma of Eastern Hungary it isn't genealogically useful.
