Do you think this man looks like a mulatto?
I had a DNA through 23andme.com, and it revealed me as 99.81% European and 0.19% African. That's the first I ever heard about any African admixture in my heritage. A few days ago I made a connection on Ancestry.com with a distant cousin who had a photo of my great-great-grandfather. To me, he looks a bit like a mulatto. What do you think?
@Sunday: He was born in 1861 in Nicholas County, Virginia (now West Virginia).

The term use to be used on the Census to defined a person who had one white and one black parent. It hasn't been used in many years. Not he doesn't look mixed, but that doesn't mean he wasn't. Do you have any information on him, like birth date and place?Source(s): Genealogical researcher 40+ years

I don't think so. Did your 23 andme.com tell you how far back the DNA test went? Probably thousands, not 150?

Not especially. I think on 23andme anything 1% or lower might just be statistical noise.
