I’ve adopted a reserved “wait and see” position with Ancestry relative to ethnicity.I put the word “known” in quotes here, because oral history does not constitute “known” and it’s certainly not proof.His European family history does not reflect Native heritage and in fact, precludes it.So, the end result is that you receive very interesting information about your genetic history that often does not correlate with what you expected – and you are left scratching your head.For the most part, documented genealogy does constitute “known” but you can never “know” about an undocumented adoption, also referred to as a “nonparental event” or NPE.One thing is for sure, if you don’t test, you will never know.
