36. oh, yeah
Edited on Thu Dec-11-08 07:08 AM by barbtries
this is 30 years ago now: my boyfriend and i had been together 3 months before he even told me he was jewish. i was so ignorant i went to the library and began reading. it's a rich history.

as an aside, i found this on the dnatribes FAQ page:
Q: Do my DNA Tribes results prove my membership in a certain ethnic group?

A: Your top matches are the places in our database where your DNA profile is most common. A match with a
particular ethnic or national population sample does not guarantee you or a recent ancestor (parent or grandparent,
for instance) are a member of that ethnic group. However, a match does indicate a population where your
combination of ancestry is common, which is most often due to shared ancestry with that population.

For instance, an African-American might match populations from Cape Verde (an island nation off the coast of West
Africa) or Belem, Brazil. Like African-Americans, each of these populations is descended from a recent blending of
Europeans and Africans. A Global Population match with either of these populations could be due a similar
blending of African and European ancestors. Likewise, a match with a population of Caucasians in Indiana, U.S.A.
does not necessarily indicate your ancestors came from Indiana, but instead indicates your blend of genetic
ancestry is present within that population.

Nevertheless, DNA Tribes matches reflect a rigorous comparison to living populations as they exist today. Although
results do not always relate directly to particular genealogical events, all match results reflect the genetic relations
of individuals to the complex texture of actual world populations. For instance, a small fraction of European
individuals inherit a DNA profile that is most frequent in India. Indian affiliation is most common in Roma (Gypsy)
populations, but can be also found in non-Roma populations throughout Europe, and especially the Mediterranean.
(More details available in our global survey of world populations). While this result does not necessarily indicate a
great-grandparent from India, it does reflect the small but significant overlap between some individuals in
European and Indian populations.

did they include a written analysis of your results/ i'm still searching the site to find out how much it costs and see if i really want to do this. i think i do.
