ETHNICITY  TEST
 

Our ancestors left clues in our DNA that can help us determine their ancestral origins as well as help us find those long lost relatives. 

 

 
In 2006, I (Curtis Loftin) took my first DNA Test with Family Tree DNA (FTDNA). That test was a Y-Chromosome-Test that shows the male DNA of my Loftin family which passes down from father to son to grandson and so on, virtually unchanged, from generation to generation. That test determined my Haplogroup (E1b1b or E-M78) and gave me information about matches from all over the world - some of which I corresponded with. The most significant ones were the Loftins that I connected to in other parts of the US - which also showed that our Loftin male DNA has not changed over the years. That was good to know because it showed that we were indeed "Loftins" and not some illegitimate lineage.
 
 
 

   

 

In January 2016 I decided to do the DNA test with Ancestry.com.  The test which usually costs $100 was on sale for only $80 so I thought it was the perfect time to see what new information I could find. With that DNA test from Ancestry.com, you also get "limited" access the Ancestry.com - an annual membership which costs me $189 for my "US Discovery Membership".

 
Unlike the various Family Tree DNA tests, the Ancestry.com DNA test only shows Ethnicity Estimates. This is an Autosomal-DNA-Test that tests the other 100 DNA markers that do not determine sex. Half of these 100 DNA markers come from your father and half from your mother. Since your parents each have 100 DNA markers, you only get a "random" half of your father's markers and a "random" half of your mother's markers. A sibling will have slightly different Autosomal-DNA markers. Ancestry.com has tested individuals in other parts of the world that they use to compare our autosomal markers with.
 
The results of my DNA Ethnicity Estimate showed that I was 98% European. The following pie-chart, breaks that percentage down into the largest ethnic groups.
 
 
 
Curtis Loftin's DNA Ethnicity Estimate


 
 
 
Looking at the previous pie-chart, you can see that my DNA test also revealed an Ethnicity Estimate of 79% Western Europe and 10% Iberian Peninsula. The other 11% of my data shows up in the section listed as "6 More Regions". Looking closely at the data from that last section, I learned that my ethnicity also 4% Ireland, 2% Scandinavia, 2% Caucasus, 1% Italy/Greece, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia and < 1% Great Britain.
 
 
When you look at the following map of Europe, you can get a good idea of the area where the majority of my DNA suggests that my ancestors came from - Western Europe and the Iberian Peninsula - as well as the countries that make up that ethnic region.
 

 
 
Europe West 79%
      Western European DNA is primarily located in Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland,
      Luxembourg and Liechtenstein but can also be found in lesser amounts in England, Denmark, Italy,
      Slovenia, Austria and the Chech Republic.
Iberian Peninsula 10%
      This part of my DNA is primarily located in Spain and Portugal but can also be found in France, Morocco,
       Algeria and Italy.
 
 
 
With German names in my ancestry lineage like Setzer, Aderholdt, Barringer and Dea/Diehl on my father's side of the family, and Goble, Fink, Kaiser, Meinhert, Miller and Motz on my mother's side of the family, I wasn't surprised to find out from the Ancestry.com Test that 79% of my DNA was Western Europe ethnicity - with the most recent ancestors coming primarily from Germany.
 
 
 
This Autosomal DNA Test at Ancestry.com helped me better understand my Y-Chromosome Male DNA Test at FTDNA. At Family Tree DNA, I have a number of male 27-marker matches with sir names like Kronen (Netherlands), Guglielmo and Crespi (Italian and Italian Jewish) and Litvinov (which is a Lithuanian name). These countries also lie within that Western Europe area.
 
Also at Family Tree DNA, several of my Y-Chromosome Male DNA matches are Hispanic males - who currently either live in Spain or trace their ancestry back to Spain. Matches on that 27-Marker-Test included males with sir names like Garza, Pozos, Rendon and De la Cruz. With that in mind, it was easy for me to see the Iberian Peninsula (particularly Spain) part of my DNA Ethnicity.
 
 
 
This second map shows my Western European and Iberian Peninsula ethnicity, but also shows that I have West Asia (Caucasus) ethnicity 2%. The Trace Regions of my ethnicity are Ireland 4%, Scandinavia 2%, Italy/Greece 1% and Great Britain < 1%. Circles on the map are color coded to match the color beside each country. You can see that when you total my West European ethnicity and the Trace Regions ethnicity (that come from other parts of Europe), that total was 98% - my total "European" ethnicity.
 

 
 
Trace Regions 9%
     Ireland 4%
     Scandinavia
(Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland) 2%
     Italy/Greece 1%
     Great Britain
(England, Scotland, Wales) < 1%
West Asia or Caucasus 2%
     The final 2% of my DNA shows genetic markers that are common in Western Asia or Caucasus.  This
     area, shown with the orange circle, is primarily located in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran,
     Iraq, Syria and Turkey but it can also be found in Israel, Bulgaria, Jordan, Greece, Italy,
     Kuwait, Romania and Turkmenistan.
 
 
 
 
I compared this "Trace Regions" ethnicity information with my Y-Chromosome Male DNA Test matches at Family Tree DNA. I quickly noticed that I have several 27-marker male DNA matches at FTDNA who live in these Traces Regions as well as West Asia. I matched males with names like Repo and Haimakainen (Finland), Papadakis (Greece), as well as Hristov, Georgiev and Lyaya (Bulgaria).
 
 
My largest group of DNA matches at Family Tree DNA are in my list of 12-marker-male-matches. Most of these matches only took the 12-marker-test and we matched perfectly - 100%. They are indeed "cousins" but since their last name is different than mine, the connection is many generations back.

One of the largest ethnic groups in this list of 12-marker-matches are "cousins" either living in Spain or with Spanish ancestry. Those last names include: Sandora, da Silva, Cardosa, La Torre, Tomillo, Pozos, Bonilla and Ramos.
 
The second largest ethnic group of matches on this 12-marker-test are either living in Italy or with definite Italian ancestry. The last names of those "cousins" include: D'Amico, Laraia, Ciolino, Bonafede, Pizzuto and Crespi.
 
(1) Other 12-marker-matches live in France with last names like Prolux, Poulin, LeBeau and Seguin. 
(2) I have matches who are cousins and either living in Portugal or with Portugese ancestry with the names Silva, Da Costa and Pavani.
(3) There are "cousins" from Turkey with last names like Boxkurt, Dihanov and Cemal.
(4) I know I have lots of German ancestors, but I also have lots of DNA matches who live in Germany with the last names of Rehm, Koenig, Beitche, Meehl/Muhl, Thaler and Pfughoeft;
(5) I have at least one "cousin" from Romania with the last name Baltas.
(6) There is at least one "cousin" from Russia with the last name Efremov.
(7) There is a "cousin" from Austria with the last name Hickel.
(8) There is a couple of "cousins" from the Czech Republic with the last names Kovaleik and Korab.
(9) I have at least on Greek "cousin" with the last name of Galifianakis.
And there are many many more..
 
 
The thing I found most interesting about my results from Ancestry.com was the extremely low percentage (less than 1%) of DNA that I carry from Great Britain/England. Since historical records show that the first Lofting to come to the US (Leonard Loftin) sailed from Kent, England, it has long been believed that our branch of the Loftins came primarily from England, too.
 
 
 

When I took my first DNA test with Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), I had the opportunity to compare my Y-Chromosome male DNA with a LOFTING gentleman in England and discovered that our DNA was not a match. We weren't even distantly related. This suggests that our branch of LOFTINs may have come from an alternate location. But, you have to also remember that I only got 50% of Dad's autosomal DNA, so if Dad were living his autosomal DNA "could" show a larger percentage from England.

 
 
 
I was surprised about the West Asian part of my ethnicity estimate at Ancestry.com - simply because I have not come across ancestral names in my lineage that would cause me to think of those countries. But, I do know that I have matches at Family Tree DNA who live in those countries.
 
 
 
  Curtis' Ethnicity  
         

  Western Europe 79%

     
Belgium France Germany Netherlands Switzerland
         
     
Luxembourg Liechtenstein      
         

FACT: Western Europe includes the countries of Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein. Geographically, it is dominated by France in the west and Germany in the east. Due to its location and geography, Western Europe has seen many successive waves of immigrants throughout its history. Both peaceful intermingling and violent invasions of newcomers have resulted in a greater diversity in the genetics of the population, compared with neighboring regions.

         

  Iberian Peninsula 10%

     
Spain Portugal France Morocco Algeria
         
FACT: The Iberian Peninsula is a region in Europe that is inhabitated by the people of Spain, Portugal and France.
For the sake of this DNA Test, it could also include the countries of Morocco and Algeria.
         

  Ireland 4%

 

     
   
Ireland Scotland Wales    
         
FACT: For this particular DNA Ethnicity Test, Ireland also includes Scotland and Wales.
         

  Scandinavia 2%

     
 
Norway Sweden Denmark Finland  
         

FACT: Scandinavia is made of of the countries of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland.

         

  Caucasus 2%

     
Armenia Azerbaijan Georgia Iran Turkey
         

FACT: Caucasus is a region at the border of Europe and Asia, situated between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. It is home to the Caucasus Mountains, which contain Europe's highest mountain, Mount Elbrus. Politically, the Caucasus region is separated between northern and southern parts. The southern parts consist of independent sovereign states, and the northern parts are under the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation. It includes the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran and Turkey.

         

  Italy/Greece 1%

  Finland/Northwest Russia 1%

 
Italy Greece Finland Russia  
         

  Great Britain < 1%

     
 
Great Britain England Scotland Wales  
         

FACT: Great Britain is an island which is made up of three counties: England, Scotland and Wales. Great Britain is the political term describing the political union of the kingdoms of England, Wales and Scotland made on 1 May, 1707. Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain. The United Kingdom is in itself a country that is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It's official name is "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". It has one government based in London and has one currency: the pound stirling (). The UK is a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state. The capital city of the United Kingdom is London. Ireland is divided in two parts; Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom while the Republic of Ireland, in the south, is an independent country with its own laws, government and currency (€).

Additional Family Members

 
In addition to myself, I had my 90-year-old mother, Willie Goble Loftin, tested as well as my wife, Carolyn Weeks Loftin. Since I only got half of Mom's DNA autosomal markers, her DNA test gave me additional ethnicity about my Mom's side of the family.
 
 
 
Mom's/Willie's DNA Ethnicity Estimate was 94% European. The following pie-chart, breaks the percentages down to the largest ethnic groups.
 
 
 
Willie Goble Loftin's DNA Ethnicity Estimate


 
 

Willie Goble Loftin's ethnicity was 75% Western European, 6% Irish and 19% More Regions.

 
 
  
 
Comparing my/Curtis' DNA test with mom's, we can see that the percentage for my Western European ethnicity (79%) is slightly larger than that of mom's (75%). She shows a slightly larger percentage of Irish ethnicity (6%) than me/Curtis (4%). Where my/Curtis' ethnicity also included 10% Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal), Willie's showed only 4%. This let's me know that the other 6% of my/Curtis' Iberian Peninsula ethnicity came from my father's (Sam William Loftin) lineage.
 
 

 
 
The above map shows what countries are located in those areas of ethnicity.  Willie (and thus me/Curtis, too) has a large number of German names in her ancestry: Goble, Fink, Hefner, Herman, Kaiser, Meinhert, Miller and Rudisill.
 
Mom's 6% of Irish ethnicity could also have come from Scotland or Wales. Names like Douglas, Hamilton, Johnson, Leslie and Lewis in mom's ancestry shows our definite ethnic link to not only Ireland, but also Scotland.
 
 

 
Comparing the maps for the major part of Curtis and Willie's ethnicity, we can easily see that his shows the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) while her's shows Ireland (and Scotland).
 
In addition to Western Europe and Ireland, this last map also shows where the trace amounts of Willie's ethnicity comes from.
 

 
 
 
Europe West 75%
     Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein
Ireland 6%
     Ireland, Scotland and Wales
Trace Regions 13%
     Finland & Northwest Russia 6%
     Iberian Peninsula
(Spain & Portugal) 4%
     Great Britain
(England, Scotland, Wales) 2%
     Scandinavia
(Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland) < 1%
Asia < 1%
     South Asia: India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka
West Asia 5%
     Caucasus 3% (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Israel, Jordan)
     Middle East 2%
 
 
 

Comparing the smaller trace amounts of Ethnicity DNA for Curtis and Willie ...

 

 

 
There were several sections on this map for Willie's ethnicity that were interesting to me/Curtis. We can see that he has a trace amount of DNA from Italy/Greece that his mother does not have - indicating that he inherited that portion of his ethnicity from his father, Sam William Loftin.
 
Also, Willie shows a 2% Middle East ethnicity that Curtis did not inherit from her. This Middle East area, shown with the green circle, includes Israel, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, United Arab Emirated (UAE) and Lebanon.

 

The other section, shown with the pink circle, shows that Willie is < 1% South Asian. This is a small amount, but it is still there. This would include the countries of India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka. Curtis did not inherit that portion of his mother's ethnicity.

Cousins By the Dozens

 
In addition to the Ethnicity Estimate, the Ancestry.com DNA test also gave me/Curtis a list of relatives with whom I share DNA. These relatives could be parents, siblings, children, 1st Cousins, 2nd Cousins, 3rd Cousins, 4th Cousins and 5th - 8th Cousins.
 
As of 08 Apr 2016, I have 480 DNA matches at Ancestry.com who are 4th Cousins or closer. There were several 2nd and 3rd cousins listed in this group of DNA matches who I knew but didn't know they had taken the Ancestry DNA Test.
 
There are also lots of cousins that I did not know but who have last names matching many of my ancestral lines. I will continue to work with all this information in the months and years to come.
