  • Vepsa population?

    Hi all,

    A short question: what VEPSA stands for in the population oracle test at Gedmatch?

    Thank you!

    Vepsä people are a Finnic people living in northwestern Russia. Their language is called Veps or Vepsian.

    You saw Vepsa in MDLP K13 Ultimate's Mixed Mode Population Sharing, right?

    That calculator attempted to find the Northeastern European affinity of a minority of my father's DNA and look what came up in some of the estimates:

    9 94.3% Ashkenazy + 5.7% Vepsa @ 1.86
    10 94.9% Ashkenazy + 5.1% Komi @ 1.88
    11 95.4% Ashkenazy + 4.6% Finland_North @ 1.89
    13 95.4% Ashkenazy + 4.6% Karelian @ 1.9

    More accurate based on his matches are his estimates listing a Slavic group instead:

    12 95% Ashkenazy + 5% North-Russian @ 1.89
    17 94.8% Ashkenazy + 5.2% Russian_Kostroma @ 1.91
    19 94.8% Ashkenazy + 5.2% Russian_Archangelsk @ 1.92

      Hi Khazaria, thank you for your answer! For some reason I couldn’t find this Vepsa population in google, probably because of the spelling. Thanks!

      Yes, I saw Vepsa in MDLP K13 Ultimate and there in ORACLE-4 my father (Polish/Austrian) comes up as:

      50% France +50% Vepsa in 2 populations approximation

      And then in the MDLP K13 ORACLE things look kind of like this:

      87.3% English_Cornwall_GBR + 12.7% Kurd
      87.4% English_Cornwall_GBR + 12.6% Uzbekistani_Jew


      At least your father’s results come much closer to reality What a strange test it is, at least for me!
