So only if you have tested with FamilyFInder first do you get the actual MyOrigins test?
I tested with FTDNA Family Finder in 2014 and with Geno 2.0 Next Generation in 2016. The percentages about Southern Europe are almost the same, but the percentages concerning other regions are quite different. The results from Geno 2.0 Next Generation seem more accurate since I have not any known British origin.

My results

100% European

41% British Isles
26% Scandinavia
25% Southern Europe
8% Eastern Europe

Now what? My dad said his dad said we had Native American in us. I wish I knew more but does not look like it in this dna result.

My ancient origins are
45% Hunter - Gatherer
45% Farmer
11% Metal Age Invader

That's interesting. Have you gone back and looked at the FF results again recently? Maybe those were old results, pre-MyOrigins?

The Roman Empire had an extended stay in England, sending soldiers from all over the Empire to man the forts. Sometimes the soldiers married local girls. Take a look to see if there was a Roman fort near where your English ancestors lived.

Do you think that could account for such a high percentage though? All the ME, Jewish and African added up is over 50%, which seems pretty high for such a distant connection. I don't really know how everything works however, I could be way off base.

The way I understand it, the Family Finder results are (1) an estimate and (2) compile the results from both of your parents. But you're right, that does seem like an awfully high percentage for a Roman-times connection. Color me "stumped."

Hello, Marcela

Which country are you come from?

Perhaps MO makes some confusion between Native American and Sami people. Also it is a little strange the result of Central Asia (Afghanistan), although 'My Ancestral History' explains that the Central Asian cluster has appeared in the Pacific and the New World.

Certanlly, north african contribuition come from your french side. I mean, considering your results and you mentioned about your ancestries, your french ancestry should come from southern france.

I'm American (family here since 1800's at least) and according to family, we were mainly English, Irish, with possibly some French. I'm not sure where the ME, Jewish, or African is coming from

My results are:

61% Western and Central Europe
36% Scandinavia
2% East Central African
1% West Africa

Most of the Scandinavian results are probably the result of viking migration a thousand years ago, but I do have a few dozen speculative matches with Scandinavian people.
