Everyone is North African apparently. Morocco was the place to be I guess.
Don't buy into that one yet, it has problems.

Yeah, I can pretty well guess mine.  My Dad is standard English stock with a tough of German (Pennsylvannia Deutch) thrown in.  Mom is Canadian French but with firm ancestory to North and Mid France.  But I wonder if the Canadian side doesn't have some Native DNA in there...

Actually, I'm looking for a little Neanderthal gene.

He's dead, mate. No more "Young Frankenstein".

Actually, most Europeans have 2-3% Neanderthal DNA.  Well, that's where the Neanderthals were and a recent study suggests that Modern Humans were there briefly 200K years ago as well.  In Central Asia, there is about the same Denisovan DNA.

I am about 4% Neanderthal.  That is my good side ;-)

One of these days I'm going to have a 23andMe done.  I know the bulk of my heritage is eastern European and southwestern England, but it'll be interesting to see what else they come up with.

Your avatar shows you are clearly Silesian (that is where the village of Frankenstein was in fact).  Saw it on a pre-WW II map of Germany.

Just spent the afternoon spitting. Some of it went into the vial.

If you usually use a spittoon then the test will show that you are descended from tobacco plants ;-)

Granny (in the ginger bread house with the murderous Hansel and Grettle) died for your sins.  Sorry, most caves in the US are national monuments.  Only park rangers can go there ;-)

Actually, most of the hundreds of caves around this part of North Alabama are on private land. Cathedral Caverns is a spectacular cave. These days it's a state park, but not very many years ago it was privately owned too. Russell Cave (which isn't much of a cave) is a significant archaeological site for this part of the world.

I don't want to know how cave-like your privates are ;-)

Modern humans actually trace back to the Cradle of Humankind, paleoanthropological site about 50 kilometres northwest of Johannesburg, South Africa.  All of us.  (I don't know about Neanderthals and Denisovans yet - but they may have roots back there too.)

White and Asian racists, who don't like Africans, will claim that Neanderthals and Denisovans don't go back to Africa.  Actually, most of the Black folk of Africa, are the only pure humans there are.  The rest of us are hybridized with ugly violent cave men.
