With all the DNA testing for finding out how humans evolved,is it possible to 
use the same form of testing to find out geneology/heritage?  I don't mean 
parent testing, I mean being able to find out if generations back, there was 
say a native or greek (etc.)contributer. If so, how available would it be, 
could it test amount of nationality, and could it be used for legal status etc.
