I think that DNA tests can identify African and what they call Native American markers. The Native American can be anything from Canada to South America. I think it depends how far back these ancestors lived and what percentage of their DNA you inherited.

One thing that DNA cannot do is identify specific tribes.

If you decide to do DNA testing, I would recommend a Family Finder test and a Full Sequence mtDNA test.

I did both of them last year and it gave me a good breakdown.

Since the Singleton looks to be in your mother's line the mtDNA which everyone inherits from their mother has potential.

I had taken the Y-DNA test some years back with some good results.
