Question I Was TOLD I Was Peruvian, But...

I recently uploaded my raw dna to ftdna and gedmatch and everywhere else I could find lol. I am adopted and only am in contact with my birth mother, the European side of my dna. My birth father AND his entire side of his family want nothing to do with me. So I'll never fully know that side other than what I was told once by him via a short phone call. He said the whole family is Peruvian.

Here on ftdna it says my South American percentage is 3. My North and Central American is 43. I know you may get less than you really are, but that would still mean I'm still more something else other than Peruvian, right?

Gedmatch is so confusing I can't make sense of it.
If anyone would be willing to help me with that I'd gladly show you results from any calculator or just give you my number for anyone interested in helping there.

I mean, does this mean I'm not that Peruvian after all?

Amerindian DNA is not as accurately divisible as it may seem and not as genetically diverse as other racial groups so it might not be anything to worry about that so much of your Amerindian got clustered north of South America in the MyOrigins screen. I would concentrate on what kinds of matches you're finding in Family Finder and GEDmatch - names or locations that may be Peru-specific, in particular.

I know an adoptee who is half Peruvian and half Ashkenazic Jewish and she was able to figure that out just by contacting her matches and some of us responded and helped her with her explorations. She got lucky that some close matches showed up. She had no idea what her ancestry was before she tested.

Amerindian is definitely just a general result...
For Gedmatch, definitely by far the most interesting informatino is on this blog:

Ok thank you both. A lot of my DNA matches are European. Not too many are from my birth father's side.

Amerindian

the Indian ancestry results are not very accurate...my Wife was born in Chile and the FTDNA report states she has 22% New World origins , 3% from South-America and 19% from North and Central America. All her grandparents were born in Chile...She can trace her maternal ancestry back to 1800 in Chile...while her paternal side came from Spain and Italy around 1900.

clearly they are unable to differentiate South American Indians from North American Indians.

They only have very select few of people in there database for native americans most tribes in America won't test because there wrongfully connecting them to Asia and not many test in south America because they don't know about it or can't afford it but on top of that they pick and choice people based on skin color to choice if they think there full blooded then put them in the data base by that and not by there DNA which screws the whole system skin color means nothing and will very between different tribes and location some are born light and dark from same mother and father and are full blooded this is the same problem they had with the census takers for registering native american blood

See my posts (#2, 3, and 5) in this thread, "Native American Tribes," from May of this year.

The "myOrigins 2.0 Methodology white paper", written by Razib Khan and Rui H, Family Tree DNA, Updated September 13, 2017, shows in section 4 ("Reference Populations") that these references were used:
  • GeneByGene DNA customer database
  • Human Genome Diversity Project
  • International HapMap Project
  • Estonian Biocentre
  • 1000 Genome
Both the Human Genome Diversity Project (used by 23andMe, FTDNA, and Ancestry.com), and the 1000 Genomes project (used by 23andMe and FTDNA) include reference populations from the Colombian, Karitiana, Maya, Pima, and Surui peoples.

My post #2 in the above-mentioned thread shows descriptions of those populations, provided by 23andMe. None of the five are described as being from Peru, but are from various regions of Mexico, Central America, Columbia and Brazil. Kariatana and Surui are physically closest to Peru, but still a distance from it.

The FTDNA "myOrigins 1.0 Methodology white paper" included a table showing 23 representatives for Karitiana, and 21 for Surui, which is almost exactly the same as what was shown in the 23andMe descriptions, and probably indicates the use of the common HGDP and 1000 GDP populations for both companies.

Would your wife's father be open to taking a Family Finder test? Actually, his Y and mtDNA results would be interesting, too, showing the Native American haplogroups.
