New My Origins Results

The updated My Origins results look a bit more plausible than the previous version (even if my Scandinavian percentage actually went up).

My new results:

51% Scandinavia
43% West and Central Europe
3% East Europe

Trace Regions
<2% East Central Africa
<2% North Africa
<2% West Africa

Aargh. I'm getting blank boxes and a blank map, after clicking through the new myOrigins intro. Does anyone else have this? Will it sort itself out by the end of the day or something? Or do I need to write support?

Thumbs down Nice job

I went from almost 30% Scandinavian to just 7%, and from 16% Jewish to just 11%, the rest got clumped into Central and West Europe.
Yeah, great new algorithm. It can really tease out those populations apart...

I appreciate that FTDNA diverted between Sephardic and Ashkenazi.

Even though they gave my fully European uncle less Sephardic then he should have. Instead he got some native south American and some traces of Oceanic.

I guess these traits had to be added to the Sephardic in his case, as we have no ancestors in South America, but matches with Sephardic there...

My old vs new origins -

I was predicted:

91% European/9% Middle Eastern

55% British Isles
34% Scandinavia
2% Southern Europe

9% Middle Eastern


Now, I am predicted:

100% European

82% British Isles
14% Southeast Europe
4% Scandinavia

I'm guessing most of my previously designated Scandinavia went to British Isles, and the previously designated Middle East went to Southeast Europe.

It seems more generic to me.

Before & after. British Isles is more appropriate. My brother got only Scandinavian whereas before I had that entirely. And my brother went from 7% to 9% European/Scandinavian.

Question My Origins new update

Which one is right than? Let me get this straight, on my old origins I had:
90% European
70% Southern European
20% Scandinavian
10% North African

Update:
92% European
70% Iberian
15% Southeast Europe
7% Scandinavian
8% North African

How can there be such a huge mistake between Scandinavian and southeast European?
My father on his original results had 26% Scandinavian and now he's got none?
My mother on her original results had 18% Scandinavian and now she's got 8%?
There's a huge discrepancy here, something is wrong, or someone was deceiving the public originally.
This is a great way to deter people away from these tests, wait until I post these huge changes on my page and people will become even more skeptical about DNA testing.
Great way to advertise.

I should list my previous results:

61% western and central Europe
36% Scandinavia
2% East Central Africa
1% west Africa

Quite a difference...
