Me neither, I just report what has been said. "Imminent" at FTDNA must not be translated to "now"

The reality is that they can't be more precise than regional.

Heck, what does Irish mean? Different regions of Ireland have somewhat different admixture. The same is true of Scotland, England and most other places.

Being unhappy about reality isn't very productive. I'll be happy if they break things down reasonably on a regional basis.

I can see my new MyOrigins results now, and I am not an admin, so I guess everyone is seeing theirs now. My new results are a lot more realistic. No more strange 12% ME- most of that was the Trans-Ural Peneplain, which makes much more sense when compared to my traditional genealogy research. Supposedly, my mother's family has Native American heritage , but I did not expect to see much of it in my DNA. I suspect that my mother inherited some of the NA DNA in bits and pieces from both sides of her family, but my Dad's family was most certainly 100% European, and it was not likely that we had any true Middle Eastern heritage on either side. I am pleased with the new version of PF!

My results are in too.I am 98% ECI and 2% North Circumpolar.I opted in.The pins are great for locating matches.

Before + After

Before & After images attached.

Question! Are the heat maps per cluster the same size/shape for everyone or are they tailored to our individual results? My Northeast Asia chunk is massive, as you can see, and I'm wondering if the darkest area is individualized at all.

Is there a list of populations for MyOrigins?

Where may we see a list of the reference populations and the number of reference persons in each of those populations?

Does anyone show a heat map over Spain or Portugal? If so, would you please share it?

I have many people in my project with African ancestry but none show any shading over Guinea-Bissau or Gambia. I'm interested in knowing if any ethnic groups from those areas are included in the reference populations.

Thank you and sincerely, Peter

MyOrigins Results

95% ECI
3% ME(Anatolia and Caucus
1% CSA (Eurasian Heartland)


Guess my 12% on paper German/French is buried in there somewhere. My fathers family is very dark haired, hairy,brown eyed and olive skinned . He was 75% Irish and 25% German/French on paper. But his fathers nickname was "Turk" because of his looks.

In the webinar yesterday, they said the reference populations would be listed in the FAQ for myOrigins but I don't when that will be posted.
