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...]

VIDEO: Jewish DNA – The Kohanim Gene and the Lost Tribes of Israel

Video excerpt from a lecture by Jon Entine (author of Abraham's Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People) discussing the Kohanim (Cohanim) Gene, also known as the Y chromosomal Aaron hypothesis and how it can help us establish the truth or fiction behind the ten lost tribes of Israel, discussing such groups as Ethiopian Jews and the Lemba tribe of southern Africa. In 2007, Entine published Abraham's Children, which examined the shared ancestry of Jews, Christians and Muslims, and addressed the question "Who is a Jew?" as seen through the prism of DNA. In the lecture, he also [more...]

Since many Puerto Ricans do not know that they may have Jewish lineage, she opened the project to include anyone who knows or suspects they have Mallorcan ancestry. "I can use the non-Puerto Rican DNA results as a sort of comparison. Maybe…," she adds. Seham hopes to turn this research into a Master’s thesis, but the topic is raising much skepticism among Jews and Puerto Ricans. Therefore, she has to prove that Mallorcan Jews existed in Puerto Rico, and then find their descendants. Initially, she wanted to trace the early Jewish presence in Puerto Rico, but quickly realized the enormity [more...]

Womanist Musings: Lost Ancestry: I am a descendant of slaves

Ancestry.ca was built to trace White families I will admit that because my family is Caribbean of descent, our records would certainly be harder to trace, but even if we had been in Canada for generations, tracing them would still be difficult.  This site was built to trace White ancestry confirming once again that white bodies matter.  I cannot even recall seeing a single person of colour in any of the advertisement for this business.  I think I am especially irked every time they point out that  someone found a military relative.  It smacks of suggesting that people of colour have [more...]

Cherokee Nation challenges newly minted tribes Lawsuit claims Tennessee’s recognition of six groups was illegal NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A representative of the Oklahoma-based Cherokee Nation has filed a lawsuit in Tennessee charging the state’s Commission of Indian Affairs violated open-meeting “sunshine” laws when it unexpectedly gave state recognition to six local groups. The commission appears to have altered its rules in order to do so.

Australian Aborigines Were Once Indians - Study

Dr Raghavendra Rao worked with a team of researchers from the Anthropological Survey of India to sequence 966 complete mitochondrial DNA genomes from Indian 'relic populations'. He said, "Mitochondrial DNA is inherited only from the mother and so allows us to accurately trace ancestry. We found certain mutations in the DNA sequences of the Indian tribes we sampled that are specific to Australian Aborigines. This shared ancestry suggests that the Aborigine population migrated to Australia via the so-called 'Southern Route'." The 'Southern Route' dispersal of modern humans suggests movement of [more...]

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...]

Why You Should Have A DNA Ethnicity Test

Another important reason to have a DNA ethnicity test is to ascertain your legal rights. As in the case of many Native Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds, establishing the fact that they really are a member of the tribe might entitle them to some hefty monetary benefits along with additional legal rights that are afforded to Native American tribes because they act as their own government. But many individuals have a DNA ethnicity test merely because they wish to learn more regarding their ancestry. In this day and age having a mixed heritage is something to be proud of instead of [more...]

The short version of who’s an “actual Indian” is “anyone whom Indians accept as an Indian.” More precisely, when Indians talk about who’s an Indian, here’s what I think they’re talking about—and therefore what I’m talking about. I’d say anyone who meets one or more of these criteria qualifies as an Indian. 1) [more...]

Can DNA Testing Tell Us Anything About Native American Identity?

These type of testing has caused misinterpretation among public. When someone had his DNA tested and found that his DNA contained common inborn American genetic markers, it is not necessary means that he is a native of a tribe. Based on the test results, a person is recognized as a native of a tribe in U.S. when he has high frequencies of genetic markers which is common in this particular populations. Developing genetic markers are needed in order to prevent “false positives” results as common genetic markers can be found in non-inborn American populations.
