    I can vouch for tomcat's statement.

    I have 500+ years as a Finn. I have a very high Mestizo score, I think it is even my highest.

      That's why, even if I had the money, I'd be afraid to have a Tribes test done. I'd probably find out that Attila the Hun was my uncle, or etc.

        But, if one was of wholly European extraction and got a high "Mestizo" score from Tribes, that "Mestizo" score might indicate specific European ancestries such as European ancestries with high "Mestizo" components.

        On the other hand, if such a conclusion is wholly out-of-line with other DNA results and known genealogy, a high "Mestizo" score could be a fluke. Because Tribes' analysis is based on an entire marker profiler a random assortment of not-necessarily-Mestizo markers might produce a pattern characteristic of "Mestizo."

        And bear in mind, that individual markers and even specific marker pairs can have near identical incidence in two or more diverse populations. In example, my family profile (collated from all 7 siblings) has several specific marker pairs that are equally prevalent among Jews and Native Americans in Omnipop's 9-marker database!

          Here are my complete results. Through research I know I have two grandfathers with about 1/4th Cherokee, these are 5X Great GFs. I also have a "Melungeon" family from North Carolina (Hertford Co.) who are members of the Meherrin tribe today.

          HOWEVER, I also have a family line from Louisiana and my Great GM and her sister, look very Asian and/or mixed Native American with Jet Black Hair and very Asian eyes. They look very "non white" if you know what I mean.
