I submitted a DNA mouth swab to DNA Reference Laboratory in San Antonio, Tx. for a genealogy ancestry advanced ethnic distribution test.

I was totally shocked when I received the certificate. It stated that I was 71+% Hispanic, 15+% European, and 7+% Native American. That is totally ridiculous.

I am white from strong Scottish and Irish backgrounds. It’s not just stories that were passed down by family members. I have documented evidence that this is a fact.

The report has me as being more Hispanic and Mexican Indian than European. My maiden name is Forrester and my mother’s is Pinkerton.

It’s unlikely but possible that I would have a small percentage of Hispanic and Indian But 71% Hispanic, 7% Mexican Indian, and only 15% European?

When I brought this to the attention of Ms. Martinez and she to the Dr. he instructed her to remove the Hispanic off the equation which increased European to 53+%, and the Mexican Indian to 27.83%. This is still not acceptable.

When I spoke with the Dr. on the phone about the problem in question, he (Dr.) had a nonchalant you get what we give you attitude.

I, on the other hand, want what I paid for.

DNA is supposed to be 99+% accurate. The Hispanic and Mexican Indian either belongs there or it doesn’t. It becomes guess work when the test is manipulated and nothing more than a novelty.

I didn’t pay over $400 for a manipulated test.

My husband is Hispanic and judging from his test, I’m more Hispanic than he and his parents are from Mexico.

This test result is so ridiculous that I can only conclude that it was either taken solely on my married Hispanic last name, grossly contaminated, was negligently mistaken for another, or a combination of the three.

It wouldn’t have affected my DNA to 71% even if one of my ancestors would have strayed.

I have traced (documented) the Forresters and Pinkertons originating in Europe and traveling through Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and it wasn't until the late 1700 and early 1800’s that they settled in Illinois and Missouri and the biggest percentage of them are still there.

My lineage of Forresters and Pinkertons have strong roots in Illinois and my brother and I are the only ones who ventured past St. Louis, Missouri.



This is the only AABB Accredited lab in San Antonio and South Texas. The result is accepted by the department of Homeland Security, Court, Social Security office, Internal Revenue Service and for all legal purposes.
