Are you sure of the 23AndMe results themselves?

Also, let's say the results are accurate, is it possible some of them might have been mothers who were widowed who remarried and had more kids? (That said, though, the truth is out of wedlock children and promiscuity are not something invented in recent times. So, I'm not totally surprised.)
