    My testing was through Ancestry. First results were a mixed bag with a surprising 14.9% of Iberian peninsula. Which through my extensive genealogy search was Not present. I thought, mmm ok grandma what have you done. But after they re-evaluated all values only six months later…. the Iberian peninsula had vanished as did my one percentages of Scandinavia, European jew, Greek and Italian. My African connection even changed countries. I have come to mistrust my government and now believe this whole craze is for identifying us. For what I do not know. For instance; I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2005 and foolishly let them toxify me with dose dense chemo, 39 radiation treatments and 12 accompanying surgeries. My thyroid was Killed in the process as well. But my point is while I was tested for all known mutations, I’m brac2 positive. Three months later I get a letter in the mail from the state of Oregon asking if they can keep my dna on file. I replied with a large black sharpie marker “If you do I’ll sue the pants off of “you”. Of course neither my geneticist, the hospital or the ONLY LAB in the world who had the technology did not know how the government in Oregon knew of my testing.

    Hahaha! Enjoyed the article! As it happens, I also am the recipient of Neanderthal genes, 2.8% and an astonishing percentage of Denisovan genes: 4.7%! – Are we related? 😉 . Quite a few years ago, I had my mtDNA profile analyzed which showed a mutation; 278, which connected me with some North American tribes who settled around the Hudson’s Bay area in the distant past. – As my ‘roots’ on both sides of the family for generations are strictly from the northwest area of England, it boggles the mind as to the intricacies of human migration! – The more I discover, the less I know!
