Cousin Sam’s African Ancestry Test Results

By , April 23, 2005 6:41 pm

Dad’s nephew, Samuel Coleman, sent me his African Ancestry results:

– On father’s side matched 100% with the Bubi people of present-day Equatorial Guinea.

– On mother’s side (my father’s 1/2 sister, same father) matched 99.4% with the Tikar people of present-day Cameroon.

Cousin was so excited. He called to request that Dad take the test so that he could have info on his maternal GF’s line. Was so excited to find out that I was one step ahead of him. Neither of us knew that the other was embarking on the same quest. He is going to do the admixture test to compare to Dad’s.

Interestingly, since our GF was at least mulatto, maybe even quadroon or octoroon, the Patriclan test (through African Ancestry) may show no african ancestry. In that case, the company will test GF’s results against other Euro databases for free.

Trying to get enough folks interested to do a family DNA project and so we can try to get a group discount. So far have two full first cousins (on Dad’s side) on board.
