I'm no expert, but it seems that companies have some difficulty with differentiating Iberians from North Italians. I have mostly North Italian ancestry with some Portuguese, but FTDNA says I'm 56%...

Try contacting them. I also bought my kit from MyHeritage and I would need to buy a new one from FTDNA to get my haplogroup. So I e-mailed gene by gene and they fixed it.

I used to have some Asia Minor in My Origins 1. With the update it vanished.
Now I got my parents tested, and they both have some of it (8% and 5%).

Y-12 Question

Is it worth taking a Y-12 test? I'm not interested in matches, I just wanna know my haplogroup.
The problem is I was given to know it can be inconclusive.

Thanks.

I don't have an explanation, but the same happens to me. I'm 11/16 Italian and 5/16 Portuguese, but FTDNA gives me 56% Iberia, 37% Southeast Europe (Italy/Greece) and 5% West and Central Europe.

Hi,
I received an answer from them a week ago, but it only says "in the future".
Which is weird because I did transfer another kit back in March.

But being a minority doesn't mean being irrelevant. A lot of people don't know much about their background and/or will accept anything a fancy graph says.

At MyHeritage I score roughly 25% Iberian, which is close to what I know through genealogy. They have their issues too, but at least this part is more coherent to me.

You're right, all of my Italian ancestors were peasants. If they had some Balkan admixture it was probably very ancient.
