The science of it was explained very well by Olchemist! As somebody that does research on families it is one of those questions that comes up! From what I have read about it and to attempt to use as a substitute for plain ordinary paper research it is not the method I would choose! Set aside the science of it and the reluctance of native groups to provide DNA, the tribes that we have today are not the same groups we had 200 years ago! I was listening to a story told during a giveaway and they recited the family tree going back to a raid around the 1840's and captive was brought back to the tribe and eventually adopted in this person was made into a full member and never left the tribe again and married and had children! Of which the present family are counted as fullbloods today! Now if we were to do an DNA and had the ability to separate all the races out what would we see? Was that ancestor actually of one race or were they also intermarried?? How far do we go back? 100. 300. 500?? What about tribes that split off and formed smaller ones such as the Omaha, Otoe, Kaw Kansa? Or those that have been married together like the CNA or the Confederated tribes?? Ugh what a mess!!!
