Finally, I Received Mama’s DNA Today
January 23, 2017
Now to Compare…
While mama has more European West DNA – 51% to my 48%, my Irish roots are higher than hers at 35% to her 25 %. The one region she has that I don’t… is European Jewish, now where did that come from – or should I say who did that come from?
There are Three Types of DNA Testing
Y-DNA: it tests the male-gender linked Y-Chromosome for information that’s passed in a direct line from father to son to son.
Autosomal DNA: it tests DNA from all the chromosomes except the gender-linked X & Y chromosomes; this test helps to link cousins across the gender lines.
Mitochondrial DNA: it tests for information passed in the direct female line… from mother to her children, but it can only be passed on by a daughter.
14 – DNA CIRCLES FOR MAMA
34 DNA CIRCLES FOR ME
Mama started with no DNA circles, but on Jan. 29, 2017…. 14 show in comparison to mine. I now have 34 – previously 30. Are my new ones because of mama’s DNA tested? Three new ones for me are the result of her DNA testing, hoping to take her maternal line back further and bring in more circles. Hoping to add Askew and Hillsman lines, but I need more cousins tested… if only I had siblings!
BIRTH CIR. – 1763 • LOUDOUN CO., VA.
DEATH 4 NOV 1820 • GA.
Francis Beaty is new to me – probably because of Mama’s DNA. Beaty connects through my maternal line on mama’s father’s McKinley side.
BIRTH 1711 • North Carolina, USA (Posb. Down, Ireland)
DEATH 29 JUN 1773 • Mecklenburg, North Carolina
BIRTH 1737 • NORTHAMPTON CO, VA.

BIRTH 1711 • Donegal, Lancaster, Pennsylvania
DEATH 29 JUN 1773 • Augusta, Virginia
In conclusion, 3 circles may have shown because of mama’s DNA testing!
