- Apr 14, 2014Joy, my wife had the Ancestry.com DNA test done.It came back with a regional breakdown, i.e. 98% Europe, and also gives a list ofpotential relatives up to 4th to 6th cousin trees.Overall it does not seem to be extremely specific could help with general backgroundethnicity.One particular point of interest was that she had thought there was Native Americanonly 2-3 generations or so back. According to the test, there is not Native Americanin her background.Lenard BriggsIn a message dated 4/14/2014 4:29:13 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, joyweave@... writes:

Can you tell me exactly what that means? I have done the MtDNA and
Family Finder at FamilyTree DNA and there's nothing in the results that
I would call a "complete bloodline." For me that implies linking me
back to my grandparents and onward as if it could tell me their names.
Do you mean the test that says what % Native American, Asian, etc.? If
so, that's helpful for an adoptee or just to satisfy curiosity, but it
won't really help you figure out who you relate to specifically.
