now i am curious as to what tribes, and any genetic testing me or my brother would need to do<br />also which of emma shores slupes relatives were native americans
Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 5 years ago.

Hi,

 

I doubt you need to do any testing. I didn't find any of Emma's relatives that were Native American. Emma's mother's line (XXXXXXX XXXX) goes back to England and Germany. The Shores line goes back to New York in 1755 where I lost his particular line. However, there were Shores in Ireland and England who came to this country in the 1600s, and Schorrs in Germany and the Netherlands who emigrated in the late 1600s early 1700s. The Horton line goes back to Leicestershire, England. Unless there were illegitimate births that no one is listing, there is no part of your line that is Native American. You would be surprised at how many people have the family story of American Indian ancestry, and they are very disappointed to find out that it really is just a romantic story. I'm sorry I couldn't find the first Indian for you, but it just isn't there.

 

Straight black hair and copper skin aren't exclusive to Native Americans. Black hair in particular is also found in many English, Welsh, and Irish ancestors, and some of them can be dark-skinned as well.
