  • Population Finder results

    Today my biological father received his population results... and they are really interesting, when compared to mine. While we match Y DNA to 111 Markers, and Family Finder records our relationship as parent/child... His Population finder results differ completely from mine.. His father was born in Iran, and my results show roughly 1/4 Iran. His results show 76% Adygei (with a 4% error rate, pretty small)

    Here is My Population finder:

    and here is his Population Finder:

    Any ideas?? Thank You

    You didn't say where his mother's from, but it sounds reasonable with what you've shared so far.

      his mother was half Italian (middle Italy north of Rome) and half Polish/French.

      The 76% Adygei gets me, could an Iranian man (my grandfather) have distant roots in Adygei?

        Just complete garbage. PF needs more populations otherwise the tool is picking the closest matches which for many people are VERY misleading.

          PF (96% Orcadian 4% South Asian) seems very similar to my Mum's Doug McDonald analysis (96% English 4% South Asian) so I'm taking those results to mean some kind of south eastern pull away from Britain rather than actually being 4% South Asian. I could be wrong of course!
          Perhaps your father's Adygei score is just saying he has a closer match to peoples who live in that direction?

            I agree with you on that one with possibly the exception of major populations
            i.e. European , Asian or similar. I certainly take no stock in 2.1% west norwegion ( or whatever )

              To be fair to PF, 23andme has my aunt in the Irish, English, and German boxes and my mother in French and German. My aunt's results fit better with the paper trail but there are several French ancestors -- all around 1700.

                He doesn't need to have actual roots there to match them genetically. The Adygei people are an ethnic group in the Caucasus, near northern Iran, and most people of European descent have a significant amount of "West Asian" or equivalent component in third party BGA analysis, which is centered on the Caucasus.
