    Default DNA Reveals a Surprise in Mario Lopez’s Past

    DNA Reveals a Surprise in Mario Lopez’s Past

    ANCESTRY.COM | 07/10/2013


    That was family historian Michelle Ercanbrack’s challenge to Mario himself when she appeared on Extra! to announce the results of Mario’s AncestryDNA test. Two cultures in Lopez’s past were no surprise. His test results came back with high percentages of Native American and Spanish markers.



    But Mario had a third prominent ethnicity in his past.
    Ercanbrack brought along samples of three ethnic cuisinesHave you made your guess?



    as clues: a French baguette, some Turkish hummus, and a very British plate of fish and chips.

    Have you made your guess?


    Mario went with Turkish.

    His genes say otherwise.

    Mario’s British ancestry was discovered by an ethnicity analysis that compared his DNA to various ethnic “reference panels.” These reference panels are samples of genetic data taken from families with a long history in an area—generations in England, for example. By comparing your DNA to these reference panels, tests like AncestryDNA make estimates about your ethic makeup.

    Its probably minuet. I found out I have Northern European in very low levels around 3-5% because I happen to have a great great grandfather who appears to have some Northern Euro. His is probably low as well.
