    Then I would say your ancestry is from the British Isles and Germany. DNATribes either has their algorithim skewed, or their Berbers are actually of German descent . North Africa was occupied by Europeans. To this day I haven't seen someone with German ancestry get a top 20 German match, but they get Berber.

    • DNA TRIBES responce

      Dear Ms. Bodet, Thank you for contacting us regarding your testing. The autosomal DNA tested for your DNA Tribes analysis is passed down 50% from each parent at each generation, so results reflect genetic material inherited from all four grandparents (not limited to a single male or female line). Best regards,Lucas @ DNAtribes.com

      This may explain the different input.Perhaps Im really mixed!

      • Thank you for posting DNATribes new populations.
        I see there are more South American categories but no new USA American Indian categories.
        The Druze and Bedouin sound interesting. I remember a documentary on tv (PBS?) about a Druze woman who was threatened by her community and forced to withdraw from the beauty pageant (Miss Israel pageant?). It was such a powerful and sad, tragic story. I wonder how she is now. Makes me remember and value my freedom.

        • A Sindhi category. I remember another documentary (probably on PBS) about a woman who wrote a book titled Gypsy. She is considered a gypsy but is actually a Sinti, which some consider to be a sub-group of gypsy (if I followed it correctly). Sintis, or Sindhis, have lived in Germany for a long time and where originally from where Pakistan is now. It was interesting. But the Druze story made me cry.

                    • My DNATribes is still an odd and far-flung assortment. My actual ancestry is, to simplify, 3/4 British Isles and 1/4 Czech.
                      The 3/4 isn't a solid 3/4, but is mostly British Isles with a teensy amount of Dutch + French + Belgian + Swiss + German. My Czech side is the side I know the least about. I was able to trace my "Czech" great-grandmother to Slovakia, and I have a copy of her birth certificate. She was born in a small town near todays border of Slovakia + Austria. I haven't been able to get a birth record of my "Czech" great-grandfather who was supposedly born in a small town/village in the West Tatras in Slovakia, near the Polish border.

                      • If my paternal grandmother was adopted, then I am only half British Isles and not part Dutch + Belgian etc.

                        My Croatia match makes me wonder....that is on the Adriatic. It would be possible to have all those other odd matches if my Czech ancestors were of Croatian deep ancestry and had mixed for centuries with Sicily, Syria, Tunisia, and Morocco etc. But I feel I have some Phoenician deep ancestry, and maybe somehow all four grandparents had that? Maybe people of Phoenician ancestry settled in the British Isles? Or maybe I am descended from Spanish sailors that raided the coastal towns? I had heard on tv (Rick Steves travel show) that the Spanish burnt down a town in Cornwall (1500s or 1600s). Phoenicians did settle in Spain (Cadiz).

                        • My Native American Panel has no matches. The top one is "Athabaskan (Alaska) (0.01) 0.02". All else is "(0) 0.00".

                          Part D World Region Horn of Africa includes Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, and possibly the legendary Land of Punt (a place the ancient Egyptians went on expeditions to). The ancient Greeks, Arabs, Romans, maybe India, and ancient Israelites traded with and were in contact with people from the area of the Horn of Africa. The most famous connection was between Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, which is present-day Ethiopia, and Ethiopia claims to have the Ark of the Covenant. I have said before that I thought that the low amount of African in some Jewish people is probably from Ethiopia. Probably the same for some Italians and Arabs and Greeks, etc.

                          • Guess what. China and India were also trading with the Horn of Africa in ancient times. It's on the web.

                                Thank you for the link. I tried the link but couldn't navigate. I will try it the next time I am on a regular computer. Years ago I wrote to the respective districts. My greatgrandmothers birth record (and baptism) was found by 3 people (different departments?), but there was no record of my greatgrandfathers birth, or even existence. A man on ysearch with the same surname told me that maybe my greatgrandfather was born in another town but grew up in the one he listed as his birthplace. The paternal line of the man on ysearch was from a town near the town where my greatgrandfather claimed to be born. And he said the surname and family was originally from Croatia, but they went back and forth a lot and lived in both areas. With Croatia being on the Adriatic, it is possible that my line had mariners.
