Malcolm:

Your citation of the FAQ section from DNAPrint's marketing material in
no way constitutes "evidence" that their EA results actually mean "NA."
You quoted only the first paragraph of their answer. In the next two,
they speculate that this is due to admixture with Aleuts or Chinese
sailors! Of course your EA reading may really be NA, but only if
DNAPrint's test results are phony (or your an Aleut descendant)--which
they adamantly insist they are not.

By the way: Is there any claim, by DNAPrint, that they have actually
tested Aleuts and found them to test out as East Asians? Anybody? We
know that Shawnee and Mohawk descendants test as EA, but DNAPrint
doesn't say anything about this!
