i have been curious to see what your thoughts are on whether we can use results of DNA tests to link us to a certain ethnic group and establish a cultural identity. for example, in my case i have done a bit of research on my surname and decided to test with DNA tribes as they have a massive (and probably the best) south american database. my south american results came back and i had very good matches with colombia and argentina. from my personal point of view, if somebody was to approach me tomorrow and ask me where i am from, i would say i am persian, but if i was asked whether i am fully persian, i would not hesitate to claim my south american ancestry. i know some people would disagree with me on this, but its my own personal opinion and i would like to hear other peoples opinions on this subject.
