Has anyone identified the locations of the small number of the European descendants of Xenia recently tested? If so what are those locations, & how did you do it? Thank You, Don Milligan

Crystal, When I tested for Native American DNA it was through my mother's,
mother's, mother's etc... line. It is my understanding that this is the only
method to test at this point since it is passed only through the maternal
line. The lab tested me for these Haplogroups A, B, C, D which are the most
common in Native Americans. I was also tested for X which is a fairly newly
discovered Haplogroup and can be either Native American or from a small
percentage of European descent. Since I tested positive for X only, I now
know that one of my grandmothers on my mother's side was either Native
American or from this small European population. I believe it to be Native
American because my mother's line are very early Virginia, North Carolina and
Maryland settlers. I also have this olive skin and turn very brown in the
summer. All of my lines appear to be from England, Ireland, Wales and
Scotland (fair skin). I now need to retest the X to determine which one,
Native American or European for of course more money. There appears to be no
deals out there so forget that. I hope this answers your question. Thanks,
