Its been said before,but since when has that stopped me?

There is no such thing as country specific DNA testing. If someone has charged you cash and told you the results are you are Polish or have Polish DNA then that person is whats known as a crook,a conman,a hukster ,basicaly,a liar.

The tests never say that someone belongs to any specific race. The results explain that your genetic profile either matches or closely matches a certain group of people who live in certain parts of the world and who share similar markers. In some cases your genetic matches are your cousins. In other cases they are related from much farther back.

Exactly Shewolf,they give a clue,ie middle east with northern european,or central asian ,never, Polish,or Greek or whatever...

There are some tests that actually do say Polish and Greek, etc. They use different DNA markers for that test but they always give a disclaimer, never a promise. But the weird thing is that there are a lot of people who get matched to specific countries and that's exactly where their ancestors came from according to records.

Isthatyu2 is right; there are no specific markers for "Polish DNA", but the different markers can be broken down to certain regions (and you have to remember, the borders in Europe have changed so many times)

Did you know that many of the DNA samples that customers are compared to belong to people in the prison system? It's the test that matches people with specific countries. (I forgot the name of the company)

My grandfather's parents were both from Poland.My grandfather was short, and very dark complected.I have no idea how to trace my Polish ancestry.Will someone please tell me?Everything I learned about them were through relatives.For instance,Myatska was his grandmother's maiden last name,and his last name was Brzoska.He changed it to Braska when he was in the Navy.It was Brzoska before he changed it.His mother was Jewish before she married his father John Francis Brzoska.Her last name was Eisner.What is the average heighth of people in Poland?He was maybe 5'5.

I am proud to be Irish,Polish,Jewish,and Muskogee Creek Native American Indian.
Could someone tell me how to trace my Polish ancestry?Did they even have records in Poland back then,in the early 1900's?Are some Slavic people dark complected?Anyway,you all take care.Thank you very much.

Sincerely,Myatska

His mother was Jewish before she married his father John Francis Brzoska

Were they married in Poland?

If she was Jewish before she's married she is Jewish after as well :)

The poles belong to the Haplogroup R1A. The poles and most other eastern Europeans share a significant amount of their DNA with Turks, kazakhs, afghans and indians, whom all belong to the R1A Haplogroup.

Western/northern europeans like myself belong to the R1B Haplotype, which is exclusive to this part of europe.

haplo

This shows that not only is there a historical, linguistic, cultural and political division between eastern and western europe. But there is a significant Genetic differance between western and eastern europeans

You forgot to mention Ashkenazi (European) Jews. Don't they belong too?

I have done a DNA test and found out that I have a lot of Polish DNA.

Put it in a frame and hang it on your wall.

If R1A is Polish DNA - I don't have such ...

Anny way I would wait for more people being sample.

Just spot on sample Size :

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y-DNA_haplogroups_by_ethnic_groups

The small letter [n] in 3rd column shows us how many people from every country was taken to be representative for every nation...

The numbers are quite small (50 - 100 people) So in one experiment Hungarians are one of the most Eastern European nation on the world in other they are more ... lest say Turk than one would think ... so we should just wait for more profesional and consolidated expertises.

You are Wrong.

Haplogroup R1A IS widely recognized through scientific groups as the genetic code that encompasses eastern ethnic groups - "A subclade of Haplogroup R1, R1a is a major West Eurasian Y-chromosome haplogroup currently found at highest frequencies in Eastern and Central, and parts of southern Central Asia or South Asia or Eastern Europe."

highest frequencies - North Indians 48%-72%, Ishkashimi 68%, Tajik/Khojant 64%, Sorbs 63%, Kyrgyz 63%, Poles 56%, Ukrainians 41.5%-54%, Altayans 38%-53%, Pashtuns 40%-45%, Russians 47%, Belorussians 39%-46%, Slovakia 40%, Baltic States 35%, Hungarians 32%, Czech Republic 34%, Croatia

Genetically poles are closer related to indians, mongols and afghans than they are to western europeans like the british.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R1a_(Y-DNA)

If you are polish your genetic code is predominantly composed of type R1A, whether you say so or not.

You

If that is correct and valid data its put a new light on the issue!
That comes as a shock that Hungarian who in years 500 or so come to Europe as nomads from the steppes (some say they are part of Huns) have a less R1A than Poles!

That means that Sarmatians question of origin is not so fantastic anymore - and it make a Crow wise person - almost :)

Genetically poles are closer related to indians, mongols and afghans than they are to western europeans like the british.

For a simple reason Nomi its A genetic map of the expansion - if data you have presented is solid!
Sarmatians have been important part of Roman cavalry contingent:)

Its means that our Ancestors or some of them kicked asses of the all tribes in Europe:)
No wonder they seem to have some problem with us :)
Right Nomi?
How is your ass?
