makes a good observation. Northern European or Russian takes up a huge amount of the planet. As does the term European. Could "East Asian" also be found in Native American's?
When I had my (88 year old) mother tested, I hoped there would be some percentage of Native American (based on family tradition), but instead had the result of 97% European to 3% East Asian (and Tony, please don't take my East Asian away from me... I could win wanna-be prizes :-)). I have not had the Ancestry by DNA test and there is no one else - no siblings and my mother has no siblings. I have had the Family Tree DNA mtDNA test:
HVR1 Haplogroup U5
Question for Tony: Would it help at all if I were tested? I was very interested in your comments about the sisters and how one could show a percentage of some ancestry while the other did not. Is there any possibility that a child would show more of a percentage than their parent?
