DNA Tests

We have done several DNA tests. The results are below. Each test is a little different, although basically the same.  National Geographic is a little more ancient and does not break their results down by nation. Your results will be somewhat similar.

The Haplogroups below are for Clifford Hullinger.  All children of Pearl Harlan share the maternal haplogroup.  And all of the female ancestors and descendants on the maternal line from Pearl share this same Haplogroup.  

All males descended from John Hullinger and all of their paternal ancestors share the paternal halplogroup. The paternal haplogroup is also referred to as j2a4h2 and we have more info about it at http://j2a4h2.blogspot.com/

Our genealogy is shown on the charts below.


We took another DNA test - from ancestry.com.  Will keep doing it till we get it right.  No great surprises here - shows Great Britain and Scandinavia. It was nice to see the Irish, Scottish, and Welsh. We always wanted to have a little Scottish and Irish ancestry and apparently we do.

The Iberian was a surprise. Who knew about Spanish and/or Portuguese?  And this test does not show the small amount of Native American and Northern Africa that are shown by 23 and me test. So we take all this with a slight grain of salt.

If you are interested in such things send me an en email and I will share it with you. It also shows our genealogy so that is interesting.  More info at hullingerdna.blogspot.com  and harlandna.blogspot.com
