My ancestry/heredity DNA charts from 23andme from when they took my DNA for PD marker testing. Its really interesting to see that they took my DNA in Sept 2014 and reported that I was 98.6% European/Italian. I thought I was 100% Italian. I was close.
I was just reading that as they collect more and more DNA they adjust the reports based upon matching family members. I am down to 92.8% now. And I see that I am matched with my cousin, Christine Vullo Reynolds. There is an anonymous second cousin with the same last name list for their extended relatives that I put a contact out for. They definitely belong to me. I need to get my mom and dad tested and added to the database this year.
I am more intrigued by all of the countries I am NOT, than I am. Its weird to see that you are definitely ZERO PERCENT this and that. As you can see, my ancestry were not big travelers!!!! I'm from a small circle in the world.
