          • Just guessing too...

            Rainbow,
            As far as the pronouncing of our tribal name.. I just pronounce it like the Potomac river. Since I am not in Virginia I really can't tell how someone from Virgirnia says it.. Even they spell it just a touch different from me....The e is silent...So I suppose it really could be dropped. I went back in to colonial English records and it is spelled so many different ways...Potomack, Patawomeck, Potowomek, Patawomecke, ect...
            By the way how are you related to the Potowomeck? Thats cool! I have lost touch with a lot of people who are ancestors of Wahangonoche...

              Hi Maria I posted about it during a discussion with forum member purple flowers in another thread last year. She, you, and I are all distant cousins. She descends from a brother of your ancestor. And my mom found out from distant cousins that we descend from Pocahontas thru our Branch & Trent, etc.

              • Hey cousin...

                Oh my goodness, that is so cool... I will have to go back and look that thread up.. Don't know how I missed it! I meant to say decendents of Wahangonoche!

                  The Asian results are very complicated... I will ask them how they figured the percentage. I think the 6% and 9% are very simplified and just crude measurements. Then you go to the raw data in the genome browser and it has a ancestry line for each chromosome where you run across the whole chromosome and it showes you the lowest and progresses to the highest percentage of each ethnic group. My higest Asian percentage was on chromosome 14,on that section my score was 58.7% Asian between postion 45,747,245 and position 45,747,250. I don't quite understand it all my self.. This could be ancient readings..Going to write them and ask.

                  Hi Maria,
                  Mum's Asian results are similar to yours she got 6% on autosomal and 6% on X. On the genome browser, on chromosome 3 she gets 51% East Asian and chromosome 5 she gets 65%!! Chromosome 9 she has 50%. I don't know if this means anything or not? They are all on the same half of the chromosomes-does this mean they are from the same parent? Or is it not displayed as one half from the mother and one from the father?
                  Does anyone think those scores are high?

                  Comment


                  • Hi Burto. I think the scores are astronomical! I never would have expected an English lady to have some of her chromosones be over 50 percent. Even one percent would be surprising to me. I was reading your new thread about your Mums decodeme results that she took for autosomal clues about her American father but now her mtdna is the mystery. Decodeme says she an R*, but years ago Oxford Ancestors had said she is an H .

                    • Rainbow and Burto,

                      Burto's mother:
                      East Asian 11%
                      Autosomal 6%
                      X 6%
                      Highest Asian raw data Chromosome 5: 65%

                      Mine:
                      Native American 10%
                      Autosomal 6%
                      X 9%
                      Highest Asian raw data chromosome 14: 58.7%

                      DeCodeMe...and 23andme are so cool...Thank you so much!!
                      Both of them have something to offer..

                        Displaying all Asian markers on one side of the chromosome certainly IMPLIES they all came from one parent but you could ask DeCode whether that is a fact or not.

                        • I went to my DeCodeMe info and looked at my chromosomes and all of my ancestry painting European, Asian and African is on the right side of my chromosomes...So is everyones painting on the right side of their chromosomes? If so, than I don't think that it can be used as a indicator of which parent its from...I scanned my chromosomes at 410% and oh my goodness the ancestry just jumpes right out at you.. It is so cool..
                          Ch 1. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 3. has Asian on the bottom arm. Has 1 tiny red dot.
                          Ch 4. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 5. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 6. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 7. has Asian on the top arm. Has 1 tiny red dot.
                          Ch 8. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 9. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 10. has Asian on both arms.
                          Ch 11. has Asian on both arms.

                          • Breakdown of Asian on chromosomes...

                            Continued...
                            Ch. 12 has Asian on both arms.
                            Ch. 13 has Asian on bottom arm.
                            Ch. 14 has Asian on bottom arm.
                            Ch. 17 has Asian on both arms.
                            Ch. 20 has Asian on both arms.
                            Ch. X has Asian on both arms.
                            The other 6 chromosomes didn't have enough Asian on them to show up red but did give minor readings.
                            This is so amazing..

                            • Hi,
                              Interesting to hear your views on Mum's results. I have to say, when I was looking at the chromosomes it was on the full genome scan, not the autosomal pie chart page. I was honing in on each one individually, and it is there that I got a segment of 1 arm of Chr 5 (or peak if you look at the lines underneath) that said 65% if I hadn't seen such a big peak then it would have gone unnoticed! Same with the others.
                              All the Chrs on the autosomal page have colouring on the right side, I meant on the raw data. The EA only appears on the bottom half for me.
                              Will ask them about it when I've sorted out the mtdna lol.
