    Btw- I told my mom about this and she said that she isn't shocked I matched with Honduras as her grandparents were Mestizo from there. I didn't know that!! So it hit right on the target there.. The rest is interesting.. How could i possibly match so high with Chinese and Arab and not even a hint of Spanish!

      When you cut and paste, it doesn't pick up the score, just the number in parentheses.

        I wasn't sure how to do it, since it was PDF. how should I show the rest?

          You could make the PDF document an attachment. Use the paperclip icon for that.

              Your Spanish ancestors in Central America were Moors that assimilated/converted?

              I tried to open the pdfs, but my phones browser doesn't let me read pdfs. Even with the new features, I still only see "unsupported content type". I can read the TribeScores () in your original post and it looks like your Guatamalan-Honduran Spanish ancestors passed on Arabian and Levantine (Moorish?) genes to you. I found it interesting. The Korean and Chinese and Japanese is baffling. I think the theory that Asians crossed the Pacific to Central America for trade and/or settlement has more teeth. People in the Pacific islands (Polynesia etc) also have a blend of Native American and Asian autosomal genes.
              Thanks for sharing your results. I hope to get a look at your pdfs on a regular computer next week and say some more.

                I found the Asian bits baffling too..until I went to Wikipedia! I hadn't realized that Chinese immigrants came into Honduras and Guatemala! There's a good population in both places! The interesting part to me was that I got Mestizo Honduras but not Mestizo a top 20. ALso, I read on wiki that there's a huge population of Palestinians in Honduras that came in early 19th and 20 century. What you said makes alot of sense..Spanish ancestors must have passed on all the Arab genes. It's just not what i expected to see so real interesting. It makes me more curious about what my mtDNA haplogroup will come out to be.

                  Your scores are very low/weak. Looks like after Mestizo (Honduras) and Colombia, and that Mexican Maya, the DNATribes algorithm is struggling. Uzbeks are Central Asian people, not especially connected with Native Americans, so I wouldn't read anything into that "match." And on Part D, the Mestizo score is almost twice as high as the next one, Arabian, and it's a poor fit (0.19), so I think you can ignore Arabian too.

                  Did you know your surname is from Zaragoza in Spain?

                    Ahhh...I wonder why I got nothing from Guatemala? I'm thinking of doing 23andme...I wonder what would be found there.

                    Oh, that's my married name! Solis is me!

                      I also thought DNATribes would have given you a much higher Mayan TribeScore.
                      I don't know why I thought there was a Japanese match.

                        Me too,'s what I expected to see. Interestingly enough there was nothing about Guatemala. I decided to add the Central Asian panel just to see what that shows. I can't rule out the Palestinian or Turk entirely out since Honduras has, other than the US and Canada, the largest Palestinian and Arab population....thank you wikipedia lol. I'll let you know what my mtDNA haplogroup is when that comes in. A group of us are going to do 23andme..let's see what shows.
