I am American and most of my family I cant trace back out of America. I also come from ancestors who were adopted and have many lost and unknown ancestors. But from what I do know is I am German, Scottish, British, and Scandinavian.

100% European
Western and Central Europe - 55%
Eastern Europe - 15%
British Isles - 13%
Scandinavia - 8%
Southern Europe - 7%
Finland and Northern Siberia - 2%

my origin

I discovered notable differences between FTDNA and 23andme

FTDNA my origins

82% British Isles
12% Scandinavia
4% Eastern Europe
1% Finland & Siberia

while 23andme indicated 2% Southern Europe and Balkan and 0 Scandinavian, 8% Eastern Europe, 75% British , 4% French & German, 10% Broadly European.

from my known family history 23andme is more accurate, but I phased there with my mother which improved the results.

my results

100% European

84% Scandinavian
16% British Isles


This is a rather odd result, as genealogically, I'm more like 68% Scandinavian, 25% German, and maybe as much as 7% British Isles, but I guess that's pretty standard results for FTDNA when it comes to dealing with German ancestry.

The results aren't ever going to be exact and less so with groups that are in close proximity to each other compared to the rest of the world and mixing with each other multiple times over the past 10,000 years with the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, and Iron Age. It takes many thousands of years of isolation or extreme endogamy for enough drift to create a separate group of identifiable biogeographical SNPs pertaining to a specific region or ethnic group.

Even 23andme has trouble identifying the German DNA. Do a web search for Anthrogenica 23andme's "German Problem."
