My AncientOrgins: (German/Polish)
15% Metal Age Invader
40% Farmer
45% Hunter-Gatherer


My husband (German with some Norwegian and Italian roots)
11% Metal Age Invader
47% Farmer
42% Hunter-Gatherer


On the myOrigin board, I have 4% more Middle-Eastern roots than him, maybe that reflects in the percentage of "Metal age invader".

Ancient Origins

You can find the explication for Ancient Origins calculation at the Gedmatch Ancient calculator site: your DNA is compared to some ancient samples that are many thousand years old from Russia, Siberia, Sweden, Hungary, Poland, etc. There are also 2 samples form USA and Brazil. If there is some match, its fun, but I would not take these results serious. For it example, my DNA matches with ötzi. I do not think that he was one of my cousins....

Is there any evidence (by comparing FTDNA AncientOrigins results with GEDmatch results) or documentation from FTDNA to demonstrate that these two web sites are using the same matching algorithm for ancient DNA? I agree that they are probably using the same DNA data for the ancient specimens.

Ancient Origins

I do not know if they use the same algorithms, but ancient DNA is quite rare, so I think they all use the same. Gedmatch uses around 40-50, may be FTDNA all existing. I think that there are around 100 samples, covering some countries in the world.

My husband and my mother in law are both Vietnamese.

The Ancient Origin Shows 100% Non-European for my husband, but it shows 97% Non-European and 3% Metal Age Invader for my mother in law. As far as we know, there are no Europeans in her family history. Interesting.
