    61% Irish in the DNA test Reese Witherspoon took is consistent with the Welsh and Scottish her parents told her about. You can't interpret these tests literally (although that is a very popular thing to do, its an epidemic). It doesn't necessarily mean 61% of her ancestors are specifically from Ireland. The test can easily interpret Scottish and Welsh as Irish because these are very similar ancestry. The guy on the Ancestry.DNA commercial who replaced his lederhosone and got a kilt is German IMHO and not Scottish he just interpreted the test too literally. Scotland and Germany are both in Europe. My grandfather is 1/2 German 1/2 French and I'm not at all surprised that his result showed mostly Great Britain and East European. Germany is in Europe and so is Europe East so it is all European DNA. I'm not going to waste my time pondering where his Great Britain came from. It can come from Germany and/or France because these countries are in Europe so its no surprise it is similar to Great Britain DNA.

    Whoopi Goldberg:

    First in our celebrity list is the Caryn Elaine Johnson, known professionally as Whoopi Goldberg who took Ancestry DNA test to find the region of their ancestor’s origin. Whoopi Goldberg is a well known American small screen actress, comedian, author, and television host. For her work in Television, she was nominated for 13 to Prestigious Emmy Award and awarded with Oscar Award, Grammy Award, and Tony Award. She is the only second black women African to win the Oscar award.

    Through a simple ancestry DNA test using saliva sample, she was able to trace her roots back to two tribes in the tiny African state of Guinea-Bissau.

    Britain’s Prince Williams Indian connection:

    Britain’s has ruled most of the countries in the world and India is one among them which was under British control for over 200 years before getting independence in 1947. During their rule, most of the valuable and prestigious things have been taken from India to Britain. But a DNA experiment has revealed that they have also carried Indian genetic material from India to Britain’s Royal Palace.

    An Ancestry DNA test of Prince William from Britain’s royal family has revealed that he is the direct descendant of an Indian woman. A Britain-based DNA Test Company has carried out tests on the DNA of Princess Diana’s two matrilineal cousins and compared them to a global database of samples to find out their ancestry DNA. Those tests reveal that the prince’s fourth great-grandmother was the daughter of Eliza Kewark and Theodore Forbes (1788-1820), a Scottish merchant who worked in Surat, north of what is now Mumbai.

    Greg Rutherford:

    Ancestry DNA tests not only helps to find your missing ancestor’s story but it also helped peoples to develop your career. As per Olympic and world long-jump champion Greg Rutherford, DNA analysis helped him to make better decisions about his training program. The DNA analysis presents users with a detailed report based on their body’s response to particular types of training and nutrition. A study by the University of Central Lancashire found that using DNA-matched training could enhance athletes’ performance.

    The results of the test are used to show the user whether he would respond better to high or low-intensity resistance training and how sensitive he is to carbohydrates, alcohol, salt and saturated fats.

    Demi Lovato

    Devonne Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She has always been one of those pop stars who is not afraid to share her most personal details with her fans through social media. She was in the news when she shared her Ancestry DNA test result in Social media.

    Razib Khan weighed in:

    http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gn.../#.WkeoDd-nHb0
    The British media is blowing up today about Prince William’s Indian ancestry. Here’s a representative headline: Hunt is on in Gujarat for a distant cousin who shares Prince William’s Indian blood. The science here is straightforward. Apparently some British researchers found third cousins of Lady Diana Spencer. These individuals, like Diana, are descended from a woman named Eliza Kewark. This woman, William’s great, great, great, great, great grandmother was an ethnic Armenian who was resident in India. She was also the housekeeper of William’s ancestor Theodore Forbes, a Scottish merchant. At some point he sent his children by this woman to be educated in England, and there William’s ancestress married into native British lineages. Since Diana’s cousins share the same unbroken matriline as she does they by definition share an mtDNA lineage. As it happens these individuals carry haplgroup R30b, a very rare lineage found only in South Asia. But that’s not all. Diana’s cousins also are 0.3% and 0.8% South Asian on their autosomal genome. The intersection of these two facts does convince me that William’s genealogical ancestress, Eliza Kewark, did have South Asian ancestry (not totally surprising even in notionally ethnically distinct groups like Armenians or Parsis who have been long resident in India). But please note that I said genealogical ancestress.

    Observe the large variance in ancestry of Diana’s two third cousins presumably derived from Eliza Kewark (though there is always the chance that these segments come from different South Asian ancestors, the typically South Asian mtDNA match across the two reduces the probability of that being the answer in this case). Beyond eight generations the chance of a genetic segment being passed from an ancestor down to a descendant is small. Diana’s cousins are seven generations down from Eliza Kewark, so it isn’t totally implausible that a segment should get passed down. But William at eight is at the boundary, and he may carry no segments (in fact, Diana may have carried no segments). Of course I did note that their mtDNA is likely to be passed down, because there is no element of chance in that. You have your mother’s mtDNA. But one can debate whether mtDNA, which is not present in the nucleus, really counts as ancestry. I believe that heritable genetic material is heritable genetic material. Assuming the lines of descent are as they are recorded I accept that we know for a fact that William likely has South Asian mtDNA. But we most certainly do not know if he has any South Asian autosomal DNA.

    But in the end how much does this matter? People will make of it what they will. And yet there is an important aspect to note: this seems like another instance of the firm BritainsDNA hyping genetic findings to increase their profile. You see that the screenshot of their website shows that they’re promoting the story about William’s ancestry, and, they’re also claiming that they are offering the world’s most advanced genetic ancestry test. First, I have to observe that their price points are very high, and second, if they are going to claim the most advanced test in the world they should actually do a point-by-point comparison with other services, which they don’t seem to do.

    Perhaps more importantly this outfit now has a history of getting caught up in, and frankly stoking, hype. I don’t begrudge anyone their livelihood, or financial success, but scientists do have an implicit and explicit honor code. Jim Wilson has been involved in some interesting work, which is what I knew him from. But a third time will be a trend, and Wilson shouldn’t be surprised if rather soon he becomes thought of as a ‘tabloid geneticist,’ rather than a scholar who popularizes serious science to the broader public.

    Addendum: For American readers I should make it clear that it isn’t totally surprising that the British upper classes and gentry have some Indian ancestry, because so many of them have had ancestors associated with the British Raj. The book White Mughals explores this period and people in extensive detail. For some specifics, recall that Robert Jenkins, later Lord Liverpool, and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for 10 years, 1817-1827, was 1/8th Indian by ancestry. The British actress Nicollette Sheridan is also 1/8th Indian. And finally, my friend Dan MacArthur clearly has South Asian ancestry, due to the same historical circumstances as the individuals above. This is perhaps the British equivalent of “Native American ancestry.”

    The amount of ancestry is inconsequential. I don't understand the fuss.

    As for the paternity of William, at least, he is the living image of his Windsor relatives, especially his uncles Andrew and Edward. No matter how many beautiful people they marry, the ugly defeats it.

    The only good looking member of that family within living memory was Princess Margaret when she was young.

    It's most likely for political pandering, especially since the UK and India have a very dicey past. Plus, as Razib Khan suggests, it may be the company also trying to promote their service with such a high profile client. On top of that, journalists love to blow stories way out of proportion. As we've seen them do with other DNA and evolution-based stories.

    I hadn't looked at pictures of Harry vs Charles and the man Diana had an affair with later, but now that I have I don't think there's any doubt that Harry is legitimate.



    The only thing Harry has in common with the other man is red hair, and even that is a different shade. Plus, the Spencers often have red hair, including Diane's brother, Earl Spencer.

    Stay calm. Stay calm. Let's be gentleman. Tell us anything Salento has said or posted that you found threatening. You may have accidentally posted that here when you meant to post it in another thread, which I find to be more likely because I doubt Salento holds any kind of grudge against other ethnic groups whatsoever.

    I agree, the two of you have nothing to do with each other. I think he meant to post that in another thread.

    And what's a feather salad? Doesn't sound appetizing. I would hate to shove feathers down my throat, I would gag horribly

    Hey, don't knock it. Even if it's only 1%, it's enough that she wasn't technically lying when she used Native Ancestry to get preferential entry into a good university.

    She can say, "Hey, I'm absolutely for affirmative action. I used it myself!" :)

    Such is the America we're living in. Someone who is an exemplar of white privilege can game the system and claim two "victim" identities: not only female, but NATIVE AMERICAN female.

    Oh, she's definitely running.

    Wrong Math: Elizabeth Warren is only .097 (less than 1/2 %) Pocahontas

    Correction: ....Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 10th generation relative. It should be 1/1,024,” the Globe said in its correction. That would put the percentage at .097.

    The Boston Globe issued a correction to its big scoop about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s possible Native American ancestry, showing that their math was off. ...

    Like I said, it's called gaming the system. If I were an actual, on the rolls Amerindian, I'd be furious. She's a child of white privilege, to use her own terminology. Period.

    Elizabeth, just release the section of the report which tells you the percentage, and it had better be a test from a decent company.

    Btw, every genetic test I've ever taken shows .2% East Asian/Amerindian. Should I have gotten free college tuition or preferential admissions to Yale????

    I did it the honest and hard way, Elizabeth, with College Board and classroom scores. Shame.

    Also shame on Hillary Clinton. Looking at the "Me Too" movement and what you did to Kavanaugh, you feel no shame saying Bill's peccadillos were OK because they were adults? Monica Lewinsky was his intern; he stood in loco parentis, and he was 27 years older. That's not to mention all the charges about pulling down his pants, and sexual assaults, all done not when he was a teenager,but as a middle aged man. GROSS! You really think it's a good idea that he go out and campaign right now?????

    Oh, that's right, you didn't believe THOSE women. Women aren't to be believed when they accuse a Democrat, only when they accuse a Republican. NICE.

    Pocahontas? She's 100 percent John Smith. I can take a random test and probably score .001 Native American.
