Mona et all;

Are you saying that if we get a MtDNA reading which states that we come
from a "European" Haplogroup that I cannot take this as 'proof' of my
heritage?

I am more interested in our Acadian roots, where there is one person
from whom we descend who may/may not be Native American. My uncle would
have to be the one to have the test done as my MtDNA, and my brother's,
would take me back to England, then who knows where in Europe then back
to Africa - where everyone began.

If it's so iffy, how are convicted criminals being exonerated because of
DNA testing?

Curious,

Fran
