I had always thought we were a mix of British Isles and Germany, and the results pretty much mirror that.

99% European
of which
50% Western and Central Europe
43% British Isles
3% Eastern Europe
2% Scandinavia
1% Southern Europe

and oddly enough, 2% Middle Eastern/Asia Minor. Adds up to 101%.... shakes head.

We have a family rumor/myth that one of my great great great ancestresses was supposed to be a Cherokee woman, and I suppose that is still a possibility with this distribution.

My mother was Finnish (Canadian born), but I have no knowledge of my birth father (part of the reason I did the test).

100% European
53% Finland and Northern Siberia
26% British Isles
18% Scandinavia
3% Western and Central European

My Origins:
British Isles 67%
Scandinavia 25%
Finland and Northern Siberia 3%
Western and Central Europe 1%
Asia Minor 3%

In Comparison to Ancestry.com:

Great Britain 81%
Ireland 6%
Scandinavia 6%
Euroup West 4%
Europe East 3%

When I run the Admixtures at gedmatch.com I get even more varied results?

fairly accurate i think...

I am south east english on paper in all directions for at least 4-5 generations. My results show 100% european. British 24% and western/central european 76%. That's from familytree and i reckon its about right with all the cross channel travel. On gedcom its a different story. Still lots of european but the occaisional bit of siberian and pygmy too...

Among my about thousand known ancestors not even a single one is known to be from outside Finland's geographical area. However, FF and my haplogroups (I-L1302, H4a1a4b) tell that some of my DNA comes from Scandinavian ancestors. So, the following MyOrigins result is as good as it gets.

European 100%
- Finland and Northern Siberia 95%
- Scandinavian 5%

But when I put on the MyOrigins map the pins showing the places of origin of earliest known paternal and maternal of my FF matches, it really gets wonderful. Both my father's and mother's birthplaces are within 100 mile radius from the center of greatest concentration of the pins! (Yes, I know that I am extremely lucky in genetic genealogy due to my Western Finnish origins.)

Bohemian Czech/English

FTDNA MyOrigins:
Europe - 97%:

Scandinavia - 39%
British Isles - 31%
Southern Europe - 20%
Eastern Europe - 7%

Central/South Asian - 3%

Central Asia - 3%

Really figured i'd get a slightly higher percentage of Eastern Europe than that, especially as my maternal uncle got 39% Eastern Europe.
