It's been a year since I took the test. I finally got in a DNA circle. Our common ancestors are Andrew / Andre WHITE and Julia FINNEY. So, far only 3 of us are in this circle.
I started out with about 63 possible matches. I'm up to 109 as of October24, 2015. In the beginning, there were a few I saw right off the bat. There were some common ancestors on our family tree. However none of these DNA matches are in my circle.
It's sad to see that most of the people who took the DNA test don't have family tree charts. And there are many searchers who have their family tree private. How can people make family connections when things are hidden?
I don't know why people who search for family history, but don't what to share what they know. What's the point? I guess we all have our reason.
My reason is to find more about my ancestors. And to share what I have and what I have discovered along the way. I don't get it when people hide with they know. It couldn't be that bad.
The living people on family trees are hidden. Only those who have passed on are available to see. That would make sense.
Here are my results: DNA Results took 23 days. I don't know how things work. I was a bit surprise on the America section.
73 % African
01% Africa Southeastern Bantu
0% Native American
12% Great Britain
07% Europe West
03% Europe East
01% Italy / Greece
Pacific Islander (Less than)
West Asia (Less than)
I was surprised that there was no Native American in my family linage. That was want was passed down through the generations. It's makes me wonder.
Thanks for reading.
