You are talking about a test where Greeks and Pakistani show high levels of Native American findings. Unfortunately there are anomalies (ask Charles who is 20+% East Asian and his brother 20+% Native American what it all means - he is trying to come to some sensible conclusion). There have been hundreds of postings on the DNAPrint test and I have been its defender and also its worst critic.
Asiatic findings in Europe have been for Y-DNA with haplogroups Q, K, C and some R1a. How much autosomal DNA remains to this day is debatable, but so far it has not show in autosomal testing using the most powerful technology - STR markers.
Thus you will have to come to your own conclusions - perhaps you would like to wade through perhaps 500 postings on the subject from the Archives - but to what end?
