This is kind of funny, some people are getting mad at their DNA results, when they discover they are not 100% Europeans:

We have one story like that in my family. My ggggg grandfather fathered a child with a slave. He freed the child/ young man around 1814. The son wasn't allowed to marry a white woman so he cohabitated with her and produced children. The generations after that often 'passed' as white. Some family members married back into the family. Same folks are finding 1-2% African Ancestry. I've been told that may just be noise.

I saw another story on Megyn Kelly the other day where a lady learned that her mother had passed as white. I'm not a fan of MK's show, but paused to watch because of the subject. https://www.today.com/parents/meet-w...-white-t122371

In regards to their 1-2% percent African, could be North African, which is Caucasian.
If that 1-2% is Sub-Saharan, then they are Blacks.
Most people with Mediterranean ancestry, such as Spaniards, Italians, Greek, Turks, etc, have some North African DNA, which is not black, just people from northern Africa, which are Middle Eastern (caucasian)
In my particular case, I have around 9% sub-saharan, and is from one of my great grandmother, she is mixed.
Here is my Eurogenes K-13 results:
Population
North_Atlantic 19.97
Baltic 7.56
West_Med 17.63
West_Asian 2.81
East_Med 9.84
Red_Sea 3.16
South_Asian -
East_Asian -
Siberian 1.84
Amerindian 26.94
Oceanian -
Northeast_African 1.18
Sub-Saharan 9.08

Wow; your results are interesting to me because you are so high in Amerindian; without so much of a blip in south/East Asian or oceanic.

Yeah. Years and years ago (like almost 20 years ago) when they first started coming out with home DNA tests for "ethicity" (which are not, btw, all that accurate), someone posted her results on a largely Mormon genealogical forum, stating that her test showed something like 26% African ancestry.

She actually asked how that could possibly have happened. Seriously.

According to my DNA results, I'm 100% European. Not that it matters.


I've seen more people get upset that they don't have native American.

I have seen that too.
A friend of mine used to say, he has Cherokee. Well, his DNA results didn't show a 1% on Native American.

I showed some native American on a different DNA test. Interestingly enough. But not the second one I took.
