Nebula Genomics

Has anyone here had their DNA analyzed by Nebula Genomics..?

I'm curious about their ethnicity reports based on your whole genome as opposed to a tiny sliver...

Note the first entry on the page -- it is a Catherina Boland. Her father is Michael Healy.

I was joking about the mainland.
I was too (sort of), especially since I may have (hopefully) very distant ancestry there... :wink:

Re: "Hidden" Italian ancestry..?

Would you count 200 years back from today or from your birth year? Either way, it's still within my paper trail for my paternal side and almost all of my maternal side, so I wouldn't expect (m)any surprises. How much would a map like that cost for me, never having had any DNA testing? 200 years -- ...

Re: "Hidden" Italian ancestry..?

I suppose another explanation is that it's recent but too diluted to detect, but your example of 55% to 60% Italian contradicts that - suggesting it's picking up 5% to 10% Italian on your paternal side. The theory that your paper trail isn't all blood relatives seems worth exploring. Are you able t...

Re: "Hidden" Italian ancestry..?

Do you have geographical locations associated with your own paternal DNA - not from DNA matches - that differ from your own maternal DNA locations? And, I forget, do you have siblings? I'm confused about your first question. My paternal DNA originations (pre-USA) are primarily the UK, NW Europe and...

Re: "Hidden" Italian ancestry..?

I wouldn't put much weight on the olive skin tone as so many ethnicities can have such skin color. If you ignore skin color does the other evidence point in the same direction? Yes. Especially the preponderance of trace Italian in so many DNA matches to my paternal side yet without evidence in thos...

Re: "Hidden" Italian ancestry..?

I know you're asking to compare notes with others who have had DNA testing, but I thought I's weign in anyway. As far as the Swedish goes, it reminded me of Gustav Thoeni, the Italian Olympic skier. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustav_Th%C3%B6ni I think you can find Scandinavian influence, especia...

"Hidden" Italian ancestry..?

Wondering if anyone here who is half-Italian on either their maternal or paternal sides that appear to have minute amounts of Italian from the other parent that are untraceable..? My Italian genetics are on my maternal side (including a small percentage of Greek). Ancestry attributes all of this (ex...

Re: Antenati records disappeared..?

I'm glad I was able to extract what information I did while they were posted, at least. But if it's 100 years, why do they stop at 1920 and not 1922 or 1923..? Those records were there...

Antenati records disappeared..?

I recently looked on Antenati for birth records for the commune of Valmontone -- it seems the only the birth records from 1921-1946 which were previously there have disappeared. Death and marriage records are still present through 1946. Can anyone explain the sudden disappearance of these nascite re...
