    I have done my full y-dna and autosomal dna and partial MTdna.What is interesting to me is how my results all match with my family history.I am an American,more exactly from the southern United States.My Y-dna was L21 and when I did further tests it showed to be a Brythonic type that was only common in the western Lowlands of Scotland and not in England or Wales.It matches with the Scotch-Irish history of my family since many Ulster Scots came originally from the western Lowlands of Scotland and the Borders.My autosomal dna was more interesting, had it done with dna tribes and it showed strong matches for Belgium but not for Germany or the Netherlands.After looking into it further I found its because a large part of my family history and the English settlers who came to the southern United States in colonial times came mainly from southern England and the West Country and what was bascially the old kingdom of Wessex.This is also the main area where Belgic Celtic tribes lived.I even found sources where people today in places like Somersetshire,Gloucester,Wiltshire,Hampshire England today had the same Belgic matches I did.My MTdna is H and that is all I know about that for now.

    New DNATest Results

    I'm a new member of Eupedia with Y-DNA and MT-dna results that I just received

    Y - I-M253
    mtDna - T2B

    My male ancestors are from Denmark and my maternal ancestors are from England. I'd like to learn more about T2B.

    The test was done by Geno 2.

    I also have autosomal results from Ancestry.Com and Geno that I can mention later.

    Thanks, David

    My Y haplogroup is commonly referred to these days as R1b-U106*.
    At present,I don't fit in any of the subclades,the major one being L-48+.
    We have a new Walk The Y project at FTDNA,for searching for new Y SNP's in U106's that are negative for L-48.

    My mitochondrial haplogroup is H1*.
    H is the most common mito haplogroup amongst Europeans.

    I've had 67 Y markers tested by FTDNA,and partial SNP testing.Already had tested + for S21 at EthnoAncestry,and that was confirmed by FTDNA.
    Also had HVR1 and HVR2 done by FTDNA.
    And also CCR5,where I discovered I do have a 32 base-pair deletion,and also 1 normal copy.
    The most recent thing I did was 23andMe.

    What about you?
    Where can I take a dna test telling me my subclad of R1a? I took a dna test with ancestry.com and it only told me I am R1a. I also took their autosomal dna test and it told me I was 29% Scandinavian, 63% Eastern Eruopean, and 8% uncertain. Three of my grandparents are from Slovakia and the fourth is an American European mix of Western Europe excluding Italy, Spain and the Scandanavian countries. How accurate do you think ancestry.com's dna test is? and Also why I show up as havig such high Scandinavian when I have no known ancestors from there.

    Very Interesting. Its great to see other Americans who want to and do learn about their heritage. So many people in the u.s say im Irish or English or whatever, but know absolutely nothing about it in reality and don't care to learn about or visit the places where their ancestors came from.

    Here is in the fact that you can expect contradictory when you undertake tests.

    Still none of the tests, but I hope that I will get some money these days, so I can do y dna test on 12 markers finally, altough my final goal is to do a test on 37 markers. I will do FTDNA test because they have test on 12 markers, they are the cheapest and I can add money later to upgrade the test to 37 markers

    I've done a single test with LivingDNA and the results were:

    Y-DNA: L151+ (U106-, P312-, & S1200-)

    mtDNA: V15a

    My autosomal results were:

    Europe 100%
    Great Britain and Ireland 90.6%
    East Anglia 26.8%




    Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland 12.4%




    Southeast England 8.8%




    Northwest England 8.1%




    Devon 5.8%




    South Central England 5.5%




    Ireland 5%




    North Yorkshire 4.5%




    Cornwall 4.4%




    Central England 2.1%




    South England 2.1%




    Northumbria 2.1%




    Northwest Scotland 1.7%




    Orkney 1.3%






    Europe (unassigned) 9.4%



    The autosomal results are a pretty accurate reflection my family tree over the last few hundred years and the only surprises were the figures for the Northwest, Northwest Scotland, North Yorkshire, Northumberland and the Orkneys, given that I have no known relatives from these areas (although I understand that there maybe some overlap with neighbouring areas and this may help to account for the Northwest results).

    The 9.4% Europe (unassigned) result was also interesting and unexpected. I'm hopeful that this figure will be broken down further once the Complex and Cautious results are made available. :)

    Hi!

    I hope this is the right thread to post this. I want to take a test but I am not sure about which one to take. I am doubting between 23andme, Geno 2.0 (National Geographic) and FamilyTreeDNA. Is there any post with pros and cons about them? Any suggestion?

    My idea is to know the family group I come from and know more about the history of my family (I can only reach up to the 4th generation), the percentage of Neanderthal DNA I might have (if any) and see if there is some cousin around.

    Thanks in advance for your time and help!

    I put my 23andme sample in the mail yesterday; should arrive at their lab on Monday. What are some of the other more prominent tests I can transfer my results to?

    I've previously done the National Geographic Genographic 2.0 Helix Test. As well as the Insitome Neanderthal traits test. Insitome is going to have their own ancestry test later this fall, which I plan on doing.

    Hey. I did a mitochondrial DNA analysis, and when I was looking for which test to do better, I came across an interesting article on DNA repair https://www.biospace.com/article/rel...om antibiotics — and I had questions. What do you think, when humanity can update DNA?
