Please post your ftdna "My Origins" results for comparison:

Hi there,

I'm looking to find out what “family-tree-dna My Origins” ethnic percentages in total constitute peoples of ANY ancestry for comparison. (Although Greeks, Turks, Cypriots, Italians, Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis, Palestinians would be preferred in this case).

FTdna uses far more snp markers within autosomal dna (whole genome sequencing) than any other company to date (more than 23andme), so all results should be very accurate (much more accurate than 23andme). Family tree dna uses 708,092 snp's in total, while 23andme uses 577,382 snp's in total.

Please state:
1) What proportions make you up in entirety from a FAMILIAL perspective,
2) All the genetic proportions that you get with FTdna “my origins” to tell of your ACTUAL ancestry:

Best wishes, Chris

I'll start the thread off:

I’ll start the thread off,

1) I’m 1/8th Greek from Greece (islands of Lesvos and Limnos) and 7/8ths Greek Cypriot from Cyprus in entirety from a FAMILIAL perspective.

2) My FTdna “my origins” ACTUAL ancestry results are:
68% Middle Eastern: (65% Anatolian and 3% North African)
24% European: (24% Southern European)
8% Jewish Diaspora: (8% Ashkenazi Jewish)

Best wishes, Chris

Here's my family group, most look ok but our child's results looks a bit strange given both parents results:

100% Kashubian Polish - husband's mom:
80% Eastern Europe
9% Finland and N Siberia
8% Southern Europe
2% Scandinavia

Her son/my husband- 50% above/25% German from Goldlauter/25% Irish from Limerick:
46% Eastern Europe
15% British Isles
12% Scandinavia
11% Southern Europe
9% Finland and N Siberia
7% Western and Central Europe

Our child: me plus husband- No Eastern Europe?:
49% British Isles
30% Western and Central Europe
17% Finland and N Siberia ---??? Why so high?
2% Southern Europe
3% Asia Minor -----???Where did this come from?

Me/mom - 87.5% UK and Ireland/12.5% PA Dutch (Swiss/German Mennonites)
63% British Isles
37% Western and Central Europe

My mom - 75% UK and Ireland/25% PA Dutch (above)
54% Western and Central Europe
46% British Isles

I flatly disagree with my FTDNA My Origins results. So I don't give their percentages. I prefer my Ancestry.com results.

Funny results, but very valuable! Thank you for posting them!

W.

P.S.
In my project, I just have 100% European with no subdivisions.

In your case, which ones are wrong in FTDNA? Percentages or Populations?

I'm not in your preferred origin groups, but I'll reply anyway.

Mine: Familial - 55% English, 35% Irish, 6.25% Scottish, circa 3.75% brick wall but probably English or Irish

Some of my Irish ancestors probably arrived in Ireland with Cromwell so actually English. Rumoured single Australian aboriginal ancestor no proof located.

My 'MyOrigins':

European 98% - 98% British Isles
Central/South Asia 2% - 2% Central Asia


My son: Familial - 55% English, 27% Irish, 6% Scottish, remaining 12% roughly equal proportions of Italian, Manx and Welsh

Son's 'My Origins':

European 95% - 73% British Isles, 12% Western and Central Europe, 10% Scandinavia
Middle Eastern 5% - 5% Asia Minor

It all looks reasonable to me. My own South Asian potentially came through my Scottish ancestor judging by the shared origins of my matches. My son's Asia Minor is a mystery at present, but the Scandinavian and Western/Central European make sense.

Never could figure out percentages for which of my ancestors came from where. I'm too complex a mix. I have people from Ireland who came from Scotland, England, and Ireland. Norwegians, Swedes, and Finns who were early settlers in New Amsterdam, and New Sweden. They married people who were from England and settled in Mass. Bay Colony. I've a Great grandmother with the last name of Duncan who was born in Texas in 1856 and that's all I know of her. Settlers from the Netherlands, Switzerland, Palatine, Flanders, France. Percents I don't know how to figure out because I don't know at which level of grandparent to start counting. LOL

MyOrigins percentages are easy. 100% European

I'm 100% European broken down into Western/Central Europe 57% Scandinavia 43%

My brother's 100% European 76% Western/Central Europe and Scandinavia 24%

Familial ->
13 gg-grandparents: Veneto;
2 gg-grandparents: East Lombardy (near Veneto);
1 gg-grandmother: West Friuli-Venezia Giulia (near Veneto).

MyOrigins ->
67% South Europe
18% British Isles
9% Asia Minor
6% East Europe

------------------

0% from the cluster that cover Veneto and an exagerated 18% from British Isles? I talked to another venet, and the results were similar. MyOrigins doesn't seem to work so well for Veneto and maybe for others intersection cluster zones.
