DNA update!

In previous entries, I have written a bit on my DNA results which show that my genetic make-up is Mandinkan/Yoruba and Tuscan Italian. My mtDNA showed origins in West Africa/North Africa/Mediterranean areas but not much else. FamilytreeDNA.com continuously upgrades results as new advances come along in the technology and it’s always possible to log-in and find something completely different everyday.

Today, my mtDNA results seem to have been updated and I now have a ton of information on ancestral origins in Africa than show quite a few matches who are mostly Bantu (Fang, Ngomba, Galoa, Ndumu, and Punu)!!!!

I will update more info later on as I research more information on these particular tribes.

Author: The Creola Genealogist

My name is Anna Lima. I am the daughter of immigrants, born and raised in Massachusetts. I am the mother of two and a Speech Pathologist. My love of family history began as a child listening to my elders speak of “the old country”. Through their stories grew a love for the culture and traditions of my ancestors and I wanted to know more about who they were. My great-grandmother, our family Griot, was my greatest inspiration as she passed down stories and traditions that have helped me become the person I am today. I believe that remembering our ancestors strengthens who we are. I hope to continue my great-grandmother’s legacy, to continue to pass down the stories of not only my own family history but also the stories of the ancestors of anyone who wishes to remember. My blog is dedicated to the ancestors, those remembered and those yet to be found.

  1. Entering the world of DNA testing can be great information–but almost information overload! I just started getting results back on some of these tests on my own family members–a lot of study ahead to actually understand all of these findings!

    You seem to have a fascinating family history story. I just found your blog today, thanks to a mention at GeneaBloggers. Best wishes as you continue your research and testing, as well as your blog!

  2. Charming blog – two of my favorite places are Cape Verde (I’m a huge fan of Ceseria Evora) and Goa – both have deep Portuguese and Jewish roots. Keep up the good work!

  3. Outstanding! I have D.N.A tested too, haven’t yet determined my admixture or countries of origin. 23 and me says I have a lot of ancestry from the U.K.; Trinidad and Tobago; and the U.S. I am African too, European and Native American mostly South American. I’d like to know a more precise breakdown.
