As most of my subscribers know, I also author the www.dna-explained.com blog. Recently, the ability for currently living people who have taken an autosomal DNA test from either Family Tree DNA (who I recommend), 23andMe or Ancestry can download their results file and compare it to the file of a Native American male who lived in present day Montana about 12,500 years ago and is associated with the Clovis culture.
We call this ancient Native child Anzick.
It was exciting when Anzick’s file was uploaded to the free (contribution) comparison site, GedMatch, because it allows anyone to compare their autosomal DNA to his. The results of doing this have produced some real surprises, and I’ve written several articles about utilizing that DNA matching ability, the resulting discoveries and what it all means.
Here’s a list of the articles. Enjoy!
