    Our family did the National Geographic DNA tests and all the ancestray maps originate in Africa. Somewhere during long migrations into northern Europe we turned into blonde, freckled, blue eyed people.

    •  I'd like to do the DNA ancestray test (5+ / 0-)

      think it would be interesting... my mother is from Germany of
      Spanish and Portuguese descent and my grandfather (dads side) is from the
      Lake Como part of Northern Italy, and my grandmother (dad) is Irish and Native American... wonder what would show up :) I would love to know which tribe
      my grandmother was from, they didn't talk about it much
      it was a shameful thing back then.... a whole piece of my
      heritage gone whoosh because of bigotry...

      Go back far enough, we're all Sub-Saharan African.

      Recessive genes that downregulated melanin production became progressively more adaptive the farther north populations migrated.  Thanks to the Gulf Stream/N. Atlantic Drift, Europe is both very warm for its high latitude and very wet because it lies on the west coast of Eurasia - and unlike the northwest coast of North America, it's flat and good for farming - so it became a major population center despite its northerliness.  Therefore you get a very large population possessing these recessive traits.
