DNA Tests

Over the past several years, I've been taking DNA tests from different companies.  I don't know if I've posted about it before, but I'm fascinated with my genealogy.  Not only do I find out who I'm related to and descended from, but it brings history alive for me and makes it so much more interesting and relevant.

Since my birthfather, Richard, has passed, and none of my male relatives on that side have taken the Y-DNA test, I've only been able to test my mtDNA, although most of these tests are autosomal and have given me information from both my maternal and paternal sides.

This is what I know from my genealogy:

Lani's side (mother):

Her father, Luis: Filipino/Spanish
Her mother, Nancy: Hawaiian/Chinese

1/4, 25% Filipino
3/16, 18,75 Hawaiian
1/16, 6.25% Chinese

Richard's side (father):

His father, Pedro: Basque, Spanish, Cuban, Norwegian
His mother, Layita: Puerto Rican (Spanish/Taino/African), Portuguese

These are the results I've gotten from each DNA test:

The difference in percentages between the various tests is a result of the different population groups that each test has in their database, but most of them are very similar with no real surprises.

Other notes are that the African blood is probably Yoruban, and the Native American/Mesoamerican blood is Taino Indian.  Dr. McDonald did warn me that the Geno 2.0 test didn't give results for his purposes as well as the 23andMe test, which explains the differences in those percentages.

One wonderful bonus throughout this process is that I've found, or been found by, cousins from both my maternal and paternal families.

Fun fact: Each of my grandparents came from a different tropical island:  

Richard's father: Cuba
Richard's mother: Puerto Rico
Lani's father: The Philippines
Lani's mother: Hawai'i
