|Family Tree DNA Tidwell surname project|
Most of the Tidwell men who tested, tested to haplogroup I* which means my great great grandfather Andrew J Tidwell was probably not a direct descendant of a Tidwell male. This doesn't mean however that we are not autosomally related to the Tidwell's who are haplogroup I*.
So far Uncle Oliver has the most Sub-Saharan African matches on Countries of Ancestry on 23 and me having all four grandparents from the Continent. This includes two matches with all four grandparents from Edo Nigeria, four grandparents from Mauritius, four grandparents South Africa, four grandparents Kenya, four grandparents Uganda, and four grandparents Niger. Also, our cousin from Ecuador triangulates with my grand Uncle Oliver.
