A Genetic Portrait of America by Bryan Sykes
Sykes’s Striking Conclusions include:
- Among white Americans today, evidence of African DNA is most common in the South.
- Of Americans who came as slaves, a large percentage possess some European DNA.
- There is evidence of Jewish genes among descendants of Southwest Spanish Catholics.
- European genes became present among Native Americans as early as 10,000 years ago.
For anyone fascinated with ancestry, with their family’s genetic background, and with the ethnic composition of the United States, DNA USA is an essential book.
