The Fallacy of DNA Samples

Before sending a sample to a DNA expert, one must first learn where that company took samples.  One cannot expect to discover Irish bearings if, say, samples were not taken from the whole of the British Isles. The same applies to Cherokee Indians.  I have heard a number of people swear that they are of Cherokee descent, yet the results come back with little or no evidence.  Over the years, as war occurred between the tribes, they were either obliterated or became part of another other tribe.  For this reason, samples should be taken from all of the existing US tribes!  The results should indeed be interesting!

It is best to know exactly where the samples were taken,  otherwise not bother with it.
