    You did not find a relevant allele value in every possibility FTDNA tests for on

    PLUS every additional possibility that 23andMe tests for?
    There has to be a red hair allele in your DNA somewhere.

    I assure you I have red hair, auburn to be exact. I came out the womb with orange hair.
    Yes, my hair was also orange as a preschooler, which looked rather blond in sunlight, and turned auburn then chestnut later in childhood (lots of brown influence). I'm not really freckled. My beard also has red in it but head hair and beard hair aren't always controlled by the same genes.

      I checked the 6 refSNPs on the top of that page and got none of the alleles that go with the SNP. But, what does T (G>T) in the allele column, for example? For the last SNP, I have GG. I didn't do the bottom ones as my raw data is just fTDNA.

        My Scandinavian went from 37% to 6%. British isles went from 61 to 74%(+13), West and central Europe 0 to 14%(+14). That accounts for 27/31 of it.

        However I struggle to see that the other 4% is accounted for by my trace populations .I would certainly rule out North Africa and West Middle East.

        Trace Results
        Finland < 2%
        North Africa < 2%
        North and Central America < 2%
        West Middle East < 2%

          My results are the reverse of yours: My Origins 1.0 listed app. 20% British Isles, app. 30% West & Central Europe, and 17% Scandinavian, 4% Finnish, with no trace origins that I recall. Now they're shown as 0% British Isles, 62% West & Central Europe, 36% Scandinavian, with <2% W. Middle East & <2% Central/Southern Africa. I'm fine with the W/Central Europe, I am heavily French and German ancestry, but also heavily English and am bemused at the disappearance with My Origins 2.0. Also puzzled at the 36% Scandinavian, although having a Danish ggrandmother, which would provide 12.5% at most. All I can figure is the boost in Scandinavian and disappearance of British Isles is due to Scandinavian settlement in Britain at some historical point. Also, nearly 25% of my Big Y matches are Swedish/Norwegian/Finnish, supporting the boost in Scandinavian numbers.
