Ancestry – Native American Genealogy & DNA Testing - Indian Blankets
For those who feel they have Native American heritage, or come from a long line of tribal families, DNA testing can help to determine their genetic background in relation to the Native American genes. Although this testing can help people learn more about their lineage, the modern tribes of today usually require that people have at least one grandparent or great-grandparent who was Native American. If people cannot prove this, regardless of DNA testing, many tribes will reject them nonetheless. Many people are just truly interested in their family’s heritage and background, and may also [more...]

My Father is a Native American, yet I have blond hair and blue ...
Should I get some kind of dna test or do you think Native American people would want to get to know me without one? I don’t ever want to be seen as fake, but it is true that Native American culture played a big part in my youth, even if it was just some hoax played on me. Am I “mixed European/Indian?” Does being a descendant of a Cherokee make me an Indian period? Am I just a confused honkey? [more...]

Colorado: Hispano DNA study results released
Tracing the Tribe is a blog about Jewish genealogy - All the developments, tools and resources you'll need to peer more closely into your family tree. Created in 2006 at JTA's request, it is now independent. Tracing the Tribe readers may remember several posts concerning a cluster of "Ashkenazi" breast cancer among Hispanic women in Colorado's San Luis Valley a few years ago. Later genealogical research showed the women were descendants of conversos (Jews forced to convert to Christianity during the Inquisition) who had settled in the area centuries ago. A paper in the San Luis area just [more...]

Why Do Liberals Hate Columbus Day? | Death and Taxes
There is a degree of truth to this assertion since Columbus did bring hundreds of Taino’s back to Seville in 1495, and African slaves were soon brought to Columbus’ colony to work the gold mines. But, the truth is that Columbus no more introduced slavery to the Atlantic nations than Wall Street pioneered the concept of croney capitalism (speaking of which, yes, some banks are open on columbus day). Lagos, Portugal was the location of the first African slave market, opening its doors for business in 1444 when Christopher was a lad of six years old. It should also be noted that [more...]

According to a press release on their website (“Local Cherokee Prove Jew Connection”), group members recently discovered through DNA testing that “Cherokee DNA is totally different from the Asian Native American tribes … Cherokees test European.” They are Ashkenazi Jews, a claim supported by a document from 3,700 B.C. that they keep in a vault in Lawrence County. They feel that to be without tribal recognition is anti-Semitic, “torture, worse than death,” and part of the “Great American Holocaust.” (They lament: “Leave it up to America to outdo Hitler in getting rid of [more...]

Diversity In Education | Article Drop
While most people in education circles concur that NCLB ushered in a new era of accountability for schools, critics of the law have argued that it relies far too heavily on standardized testing, often referred to as “teaching to the test.” During his election campaign, President Barack Obama supported NCLB’s broad goals of closing the achievement gap and holding schools accountable, but he criticized the amounts and types of testing the law required. Currently, Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan are working to overhaul the No Child Left Behind law. To that end, the [more...]

Can an Indian DNA Test Find or Prove Native American Ancestry?
Their admixture report attempts to separate Asian ancestry into Indigenous American and East Asian components. This could be more useful for an Indian DNA test. But the population data is from relatively small samples. So the accuracy can be severely limited by statistical noise.NOTE: Those who have been around DNA testing for awhile will recognize this as the old DNA Print test licensed to a different company. DNA TribesAnother possibility for an Indian DNA test is DNA Tribes. They use a set of 21 autosomal markers, including the CODIS markers used by police in forensic investigations. [more...]

Meet Your Winemaker: Lynmar's Bibiana González Rave on Gut ...
They say it is very rare your DNA comes from one single specific region, because we are all from many places. Being Columbian, I have always thought I was American Indian blended with Spanish. But that test said I was 100% from France... an area outside Paris. My family never knew we had French roots. SI: That's pretty amazing. You literally had winemaking in your genes. At the risk of being too general, what's your winemaking philosophy? BGR: So, yes. For example something that is very important for me, and is very much my French training, is being at the vineyard and really knowing what [more...]
