One of my father's parents was born in Cappelle sul Tavo in Abruzzo, the other in Termini Imerese, Sicily. His results are:

64% Southern Europe
33% Asia Minor
3% North Africa

They are saying that the time period for MyOrigins is 1000 to 10,000years ago. That makes for a lot of population movements, but, as I said in another thread, it's absolutely useless for genealogists.

I agree.

I'm Italian, and up to 300 years ago my ancestors were:

- 50% from Tuscany
- 25% from North Italy
- 25% from South Italy

I got Asia Minor too in myOrigins:

- 79% Southern Europe
- 16% Asia Minor
- 5% Ashkenazi Diaspora

I'm more surprised by the Ashkenazi part.

To many people do not know the time frame ftDNA uses for their admix.

And if you test with other companies you will see them all report different amounts.

I would not put to much into the % you got.

23andme does a better job with Italians and Spaniards.

My Abruzzese father had 43% Asia Minor here. Note that the Asia Minor reference population for MO is Armenian, not Turkish.

Italian 30 Spanish 124
Japanese 147 Surui 21
Karitiana 23 Swedish 33
Korean 15 Ukrainian 10
Kuwaiti 14 Yoruba 136

Asia minor seems to be entirely represented by an Armenian reference population. It is likely the most ill defined category.

Stumbled on this thread that I had meant to post to previously. I'm also half Italian (family lines go back to central/southern Italy - close to original poster) and British (Scottish/English/Irish). I get a similar, ridiculous 23% lump of "Asia Minor" on myorigins. Rest is Western Central/Southern/Eastern Europe in that order.

My mother gets 87% Italian on 23andme, 7% Southern European, bits of other stuff.
