First question. Was my dna compared to people indigenous to an area or compared to the overall current population of an area. Second question. My result showed 11 percent Europe west. However, just below it list trace and when I click on it it gives me three areas; Italy/Greece, Europe east and finish/ north western russia. These percentages add up to 11 percent also. Is the trace showing me how the europe west is broken down? If so why is it under western europe. They are not western european areas.

How do I get this help?

I just don’t understand.

There is a potential cousin who also has a tree on Ancestry, but that person took the 23andme DNA test. I would like to see if we are a match. If I take the Ancestry DNA test, is there any way that I can compare the Ancestry DNA with this potential cousin or would it be better to take the 23andme test. There is a possible adoption in my tree and I want to prove/disprove it.

I have zero percent British Isles and one of my matches was 100% British Isles.

I’m satisfied with my actual DNA Results, but the matches don’t seem to be very acurate.

You have them on my DNA map in Washington State. Is there any way that it can be changed? I would like to have them on the map correctly.

The results have been received. However, I would like to know what happens if I do a correction on my tree what will happen to the results. I believe that one of the ancestors that start a part of the tree may not be correct.

I do have some questions still.

First-the pins in my map show nearly 70 places (just in the United States alone) that are birthplaces of my matches. Most are birthplaces of several people in my tree. It is so difficult to try to plow through the map looking for matches. Is there a place that lists our matches so we can find them more easily?

Second, a family tree of a cousin of mine had two DIFFERENT people listed as parents of our mutual great grandfather. The DNA match for her showed HER choice as matches, plus several more generations back. My tree also showed matches of a completely different couple I thought were his parents, plus even more matches for their ancestors!

How is this possible? How can two completely different couples be matches for the same man? Very confused.

Also, please ask the web site designers to come up with a simpler method to look at the “cousin matches” It would be nice to have a notation that tells you if there is a common ancestor found, or if the tree is private or if that person doesn’t even have a tree. The current web site is awfully cumbersome to navigate.

But thanks for the presentation! Hope there will be others.
