  • Newb question re: myOrigins

    I took the FamilyFinder test. I just received my results (screenshots below). It shows that I'm 83% Southeast Asian, but there is an orange blob over Madagascar? Is this a "typo"? Thanks in advance for the help.

        You can switch between "expand all" and "collapse all".
        After clicking on "expand all" it should show "collapse all".
        I see in your screenshot "expand all" instead of "collapse all".

            Madagascar does apparently have a south Asian admixture.
            following study states part of madagascars admixture is similar to the populations of Java-Kalimantan-Sulawesi areas

                It's just showing where Southeast Asia covers and the same for Northeast Asian. It does not mean that your ancestors came from each and everyone one of those places, but rather that the people in those areas are considered to be of Southeast Asian origin, or that the samples came from people from those areas.
