01/17/2003    DNA TESTING -- PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE

Re:        Mitochondrial DNA Testing
From:    RomeoJA@AOL.com (romeoja <RomeoJA@AOL.com>)
Date:     1/17/2003

Back in September, I sent a message about mitochondrial DNA testing as a way to determine Native American ancestry along an individual's strictly maternal line (mother's mother's mother's etc. mother ), and
a number of you have expressed interest in participating in this testing.   Ray and Betty have been kind enough to track the initial message along with your responses on their web site; you may refer to
www.mitsawokett.com/DNA Testing.htm for the complete history.

Enough of you (more than 10) have volunteered so that we qualify for a group rate of $175 per test using Oxford Ancestors (www.oxfordancestors.com).  This is down from an individual test price of $220, but not quite as good as the $160 rate we could get if we had more than 20 volunteers.  Several of us have discussed off-line whether or not to wait for more volunteers, and decided that we should go ahead and send the application for the tests with the volunteers that we currently have.

What I need you to do, if you are interested in having the test done, is to send me (off-line if you prefer) the following information, which is needed to order the tests:

1.  Name of person to be tested
2.  Full mailing address
3.  E-mail address
4.  Telephone

I will assemble the responses into one application, so that we qualify for the group rate quoted above, and send it to Oxford Ancestors.  Once Oxford Ancestors receives the application, they will send out the DNA sampling kits with full instructions to each volunteer.  You will return the test sample to Oxford Ancestors along with the required payment.  They hold the check until the test results have been mailed out to you, which is approx. 6 weeks after they receive your sample.  The results are confidential, so it will be your choice whether or not to share the findings with the group (although we hope that you do).

If you are interested in sharing the results, would you please let me know whether or not your maternal line can be traced to one of the Mitsawokett families, and if so, please specify the line, starting with yourself, then your mother, her mother, her mother, etc.  If any of you  shows up as belonging to a DNA group of Native American origin, it means that every woman along your  maternal line likewise belongs to the same group, which anyone else who can claim descent from one of these women might be interested to know.

The DNA test that Oxford Ancestors performs matches a segment of your DNA against a scientifically-recognised reference set, and it is the differences between your DNA segment and the reference set that
determines your DNA type.  Each DNA type is associated with one of 36 prehistoric "clan" mothers.  Four of these "clan" mothers are identified with Native Americans, and a fifth, more rarely encountered, one is seen in small percentage of Native Americans and Europeans.  Oxford Ancestors sends you: a readout of the relevant part of your own DNA sequence; a full explanation of the scientific procedures that they use; an authorised certificate identifying your "clan" mother; a chart showing how your DNA type fits into the
overall evolutionary framework; and information about the life and times of your maternal "clan" mother.  Refer to www.oxfordancestors.com/matriline.htm for further information or to see a sample of the certificate that they send.

Some of you asked about Y-chromosome DNA testing to determine Native American ancestry along the paternal line.  Unfortunately, Oxford Ancestors' Y-chromosome test does not look at the specific site that
can indicate Native American paternity.  Therefore, if you were interested in this test for this specific reason, you do not want the Y-chromosome test from Oxford Ancestors.  However, if you are interested in pursuing this type of test, there are other organisations whose Y-chromosome DNA test does look at the specific site for Native American paternity.  The Y-chromosome test that Oxford Ancestors currently performs can be used instead to help clarify relationships between people who are thought to descend from a common paternal ancestor.  For case examples, refer to www.oxfordancestors.com/stories.htm.

I am excited that so many of you volunteered for the mitochondrial DNA testing, am looking forward to receiving the information needed to order the tests, and am especially looking forward to whatever
results we may learn from the tests.

Best regards,

Joseph A Romeo
