  • What is the Margin of Error in My Origins??

    So why did this happen?

    So compared to my parents, my "my origins" results are

    Me
    ----European 94%
    Western and Central Europe 62%
    Scandinavia 13%
    Eastern Europe 12%
    Finland and Northern Siberia 7%
    ----New World 5%
    Native American 5%
    ----Central/South Asian 2%
    Central Asia 2%

    My Father
    ----European 97%
    British Isles 38%
    Scandinavia 33%
    Southern Europe 14%
    Western and Central Europe 11%
    Finland and Northern Siberia 1%
    ----Central/South Asian 2%
    Central Asia 2%

    My Mom
    ----European 81%
    Eastern Europe 41%
    Scandinavia 31%
    Western and Central Europe 7%
    Southern Europe 2%
    ----New World
    Native American 11%
    ----East Asian
    Northeast Asia 6%
    ----Central/South Asian 2%
    Central Asia 2%

    How do I have more Finland and Northern Siberia than BOTH of them combined?

    What is the Margin of Error for these as I thought we were to ignore 1% and below results however, this would make it seem even 5-6% results may not be correct??

    Not sure of the margin of error

    but

    Europe is a melting pot of many different human migrations. Each areas deep ancestry is a certain percentage of each of these groups.

    I would say it is due to your mothers Eastern European and your fathers Scandinavian.

    the combination of these ancient migrations show her as Eastern Europe, the part you inherited from her Eastern European genetics probably leans more to one of these sub populations with a more North Eastern European genetics.

    the same applies to your fathers Scandinavian, Scandinavian probably comprises of a small sub population with genetics similar to Finland and Siberia.

    If you happened to inherit these sections of your parents DNA, this percentage combine would look like you have more Finland/Siberia and to a lesser extent of Eastern Europe and Scandinavia

    hope that make a little sense

      It does. It just makes it harder if I hadn't had my parents tested because it seems like it moves me into a less accurate category than from what I am seeing as the split up of the two from my parents. What makes it even more confusing is that my mom should be closer to 50% Native American as her Father was full blooded Mohawk from what we have of his parents, and his parents parents. I am guessing these northern groups would account for that as well closer to Siberia. I think I will have to brush up more on the history of Mohawks during the time of populations this gauges. I am still not a fan of how it isn't as accurate of a grouping structure for an individual to test.

        Your grandfather could have been regarded to be a full blooded Mohawk, but one of his ancestors could have had a wife that was not Amerindian.
