    Just keep in mind that with this test you may not get matches or few matches. I have no Mexico matches. Most of my family is Colonial American and that's where all my matches are are family Finder.

    Family Tree DNA's main page has Family Finder/Population Finder.
    Population Finder has the percentages.

    I haven't done the PF test.

    My 17% (about 1/6) Native American comes from the AncestryByDNA test (originally by DNAPrint Genomics) that is now done by DNA Diagnostics Center.

    My 00.00% Asian was from 23andme. 23andme puts any and all Native American ancestry into the "Asia" category. They recently changed my 00.00 to 00.14, which is less than one percent.

    Population Finder is the % part of the Family Finder Test. Family Finder matches you up with cousins that share the same DNA as you have inherited from your ancestors. The PF part of the test is % although the test does not tell you which % goes to what ancestor. You need paper for that

    If you have Spanish names look to the Catholic Church for records

Then they would give you a middle and last name unless you had a Spaniard marry into the family to acquire a surname through marriage or birth of child. My family drops their first names after they are baptized and went by their middle names given. Its not easy to research when they drop names they were given at birth or by baptism.

Personally I am skeptical of any percent readings but others believe in then
    PF is now supposed to be the same as 23andMe. Most of the % I have seen from 23andMe results are pretty much the same as PF on % from those I know who have taken both tests.
