MDLP K16 Modern Admixture Proportions

MDLP K16 Modern Admixture Proportions


The K16 model of Admixture K16 focuses primarily on 16 worldwide basic, distich components of modern human ancestry, which have been discovered and detailed in Haak et al. (2014), Lazaridis et al. (2016). These components were empirically 'learned' in ADMIXTURE software from allele frequencies of learning merged dataset (116463 SNPs) of human populations, which, in their turn, had been converted into 'synthetic groups of individuals', with each of them representing one (of 16) ancestral populations. Then, the rest of dataset ('reference') was projected unto those ancestral populations with SNPWEIGHTS software: the results of component projection were averaged per each modern group of human population, and taken as 'population reference values' of component membership in 2xOracle and OracleX4.

These 16 component are briefly described below as follows:
Amerindian - a component, which is modal (i.e has a peak) in various native American groups of North and South America, as well as in ancient DNA of Native Americans (Clovis, Kennewick man, etc).
Ancestor - an archaic component, detected in modern African Pygmy populations (such as Mbuties and Biaka) and Khoisan hunter-gatherers.
Steppe - a component which was sourced from ancient genome of European Bronze Age pastoralists: it roughly approximates levels of ancient North Eurasian hunter-gatherers' heritage, which was subsequently shown to have an influence in later eastern hunter-gatherers and to have spread into Europe via an incursion of Steppe herders beginning ∼4,500 years ago.
Indian - a component of ancestry harboured by populations of Indian subcontinent
Arctic - a component displayed in genomes of Eskimo Inuits from Greenland and shared with Siberian Chukchis/Koryaks.
Australian - a component of aboriginal ancestry assigned to Australian aborigens.
Caucasian - a major component of ancestry of modern inhabitants of Caucasus, Iran and northern Indian : it was derived from genomes of mesolithic Caucasian Hunter-gatherers: a major ancestral component linked to CHG was carried west and east by migrating herders from the Eurasian Steppe.
EastAfrican - a very dilluted component being inherited specififically from ancient inhabitants of Ethiopia and African Horn
NorthEastEuropean - a fancy moniker for a dominant type of ancestry in North-Eastern Europe based on older type of ancestry (WHG, west European Hunter-Gatherer), today this type of ancestry peaks in the Baltic region and Scandinavia
NearEast - a component harboured and later carried by ancient populations of Near East, in our time it reaches the maximum among Bedoins and Saudi Arabians; the component seems to carry an excess of Eurasian Basal component relative to Neolithic component.
Neolithic - a component, modeled on genomes of first neolithic farmers of Anatolia (West Asia), these farmers from West Asia migrated to Europe during the Neolithic and carried this component with them.
NorthAfrican - a local component of ancestry found in North Africans: this local North African genetic component is very different from the one found in the populations in the south of the Sahara (Subsaharian component, see below).
Oceanic - a component of aboriginal ancestry assigned to aborigens of Melanesia and Papua-New-Guinea.
Siberian - a component, which is rougly ascribed to Central Siberian (found at highest frequency in Nganasan)
SouthEastAsian - a dominant component of South East Asians: being highest among the Dai, Cambodians, Lahu and Malay, this is the most common East Asian component among South Asians.
Subsaharian - a main component of ancestry seen in Yoruba, Mandenka and Luhya populations.

Settlers of the Virginia Blue Ridge Highlands

My first genetic community and only one at the moment... 
Ancestry has grouped the people of the Blue Ridge Highlands into a community. And they tell you which of your ancestors lived there...

To be more specific they said...  

"Complex religious and economic crises in the eighteenth century often forced poor laborers across Great Britain and Germany to choose between oppression or emigration. Many of them moved into untamed land in the Pennsylvanian, Virginian, and Carolinian back country. As they continued west, these farmers settled Central Appalachia where the steep, timbered mountains provided a unique challenge to survival. The discovery of coal transformed the region into a network of mining towns whose success often fluctuated between boom and bust."   

This should be handy for research purposes... some how... to be continued...

GENETIC COMMUNITIES ON ANCESTRY #FAMilyHISToryFRIDAY

ANCESTRY has started something new... GENETIC COMMUNITIES...
WHAT IS A GENETIC COMMUNITY? BASICALLY ANCESTRY describes it as

"Genetic Communities™ are groups of AncestryDNA members who are connected through DNA most likely because they descend from a population of common ancestors, even if they no longer live in the area where those ancestors once lived." 

in other words a genetic community is a group of members with common ancestors in a common area who have DNA in common. get it? 

me neither... going to go look into this further... see ya....

UPDATE FOR ALL MY BOURNE COUSINS

Looks like we have a shared LEGACY.... 


So if you click on the BOURNE tag in the post you get all the Bourne posts in the blog. But you knew that. So you probably know that I finally broke through that wall and found James Emmett Bournes parents parents... 

JAMES senior was born about 1800 and is called the late bloomer as he was about 77 when he married a much younger Matilda Stephenson and started a family. James was the son of Stephen Bourne and Rosamond Mallory and Stephen Jr was the son of Stephen Bourne and Hannah. Think she was a MINITREE but not sure. 

Stephen jr was a Sgt in the Revolution, promoted by General Washington... 

Stephen Sr was the son of William and his second wife, do not know her name... but Williams first wife was NANCY VAUGHAN.... who was not the mother of STEPHEN SR.... some confusion in the research on that... 

WILLIAM JR. was the son of WILLIAM SR. and his first wife... name unknown... but was raised by William and his second wife MARY POLLY VAUGHAN who was not Juniors mother... They married in 1711 long after William and his brother Stephen's births... 

Stay tuned...

WHY BETSY ALTIZER IS probably NOT THE MOTHER OF SARAH REED AKERS

When I first started the family tree I discovered numerous sources claiming that Sarah Reeds mother was Elizabeth Altizer, but recently found out that that must be wrong. The marriage of Betsy Altizer and George Reed Sr, was in 1829, however, Sarah Reed was born in 1817 and George was married to Sarah Graham at the time. In other words Sarah Reed Akers mother is actually Sarah Graham. Guess thats where the name came from... The point being, sometimes the trees and rumors are not true... George had his children before the death of his wife Sarah and his marriage to his last wife Betsy... He may have married others as well... it is a common name, but Betsy was definitely not the mother of Sarah Reed.... who by the way is my 4th great grandmother.

THREE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY

IT WAS JUST THREE SHORT YEARS AGO, WHEN I STARTED THIS BLOG TO WRITE ABOUT MY ANCESTORS AND ACCEPT THE 52 ANCESTORS CHALLENGE. MY HOW TIME FLIES...

ONCE YOU FOCUS ON A GOAL, IT IS A LOT EASIER TO WRITE ABOUT IT.

AND I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH SINCE THEN....

GOALS ARE GOOD TO HAVE....

JOHN married Flayl's daughter MARTHA J PAYNE and had a few kids. Among them, ARCHIBALD G NICHOLS who married JUDITH HATCHER and had my ancestor, JOHN M NICHOLS around 1814. John married MARTHA ANN JONES in Franklin Co. in 1846.
John and Martha Jones had at least five kids, IRA, GEORGE, EZEKIEL, OCTAVIA JANE, and JAMES NICHOLS. GEORGE NICHOLS married MELINDA J YOUNG and ZEKE married HARRIET ISABELLE WILLIAMS.
ARCHIBALD NICHOLS and JUDITH HATCHER were also the parents of SALLIE S KASEY who married GEORGE S. KASEY, DANIEL W. NICHOLS who married POLLY BLACK, KETURAH NICHOLS who married PRESLEY BINER, BYER NICHOLS, JUDITH NICHOLS, LUCINDA HATCHER NICHOLS who married MORGAN MORRIS, BARTLETT NICHOLS who married MARY POLLY RICHARDSON, and MARTHA J NICHOLS who married STEPHEN MORRIS,

MARTHA PAYNE NICHOLS had eight children....

ELISHA, FLAYL, JOHN P NICHOLS, JANE NICHOLS HANCOCK, MOLLY NICHOLS CUNDIFF, ARCH, JESSE, and CATHERINE NICHOLS POLLARD.  

CATHERINE married JOHN POLLARD, FLAYL married NANCY ANN HATCHER, JOHN married SARAH PAYNE, JANE married EDWARD HANCOCK, MOLLY married BENJAMIN CUNDIFF, ARCH married MARY POLLY UPDIKE in 1819 after the death of JUDITH, JESSE married SARAH FIELDS, and ELISHA married NANCY PAYNE.
