    One salient question is: do you have Irish matches, and if so are they all or mainly from the same region or sharing a certain surname?

    Population Finder can be a decent general overview, but it's no substitute for analyzing complexes of matches by location and surname.

    Irish will typically fall into Orcadian since it's the closest population.

    PF results

    My husband and children's results just came in and my husband PF is French, Orcadian 79% and Palestinian, Jewish Bedoin 20%. We know he has some French and Swiss (GF spoke German) and his mom was Bavarian German. He also has a bit of Italian and Polish. His Relatives list is almost all Jewish surnames. A bit surprised as he has no knowledge that anyone was Jewish and from hearing from others on these boards if you have a lot of Jewish names you probably have Jewish ancestors. My kids share the relatives also but their PF is a little different with one having more ME of 30% specifically Aygei only and the son having 100% European with Russian, Finnish, Sardinian Spanish, Tuscan, French and Orcadian. I don't know wether I should question FTDNA on these results or not.

    I emailed Dr. McDonald, and this is what he came up with. I'm still confused though. I don't understand what all of this means.


    autosomal-o-results.csv
    Most likely fit is 24.5% (+- 4.8%) Europe (various subcontinents)
    and 23.1% (+- 0.6%) America (various subcontinents)
    and 52.5% (+- 5.3%) Mideast (all Jewish)

    The following are possible population sets and their fractions,
    most likely at the top
    Irish= 0.234 Maya= 0.233 Jewish= 0.533 or
    English= 0.263 Maya= 0.236 Jewish= 0.501 or
    French= 0.322 Maya= 0.239 Jewish= 0.440 or
    Finland= 0.179 Maya= 0.226 Jewish= 0.595 or
    Irish= 0.239 Columbia= 0.227 Jewish= 0.534 or
    Hungary= 0.289 Maya= 0.233 Jewish= 0.478 or
    Finland= 0.188 Columbia= 0.220 Jewish= 0.593

    or
    Spain 0.5264 Jewish 0.2258 Maya 0.2206 Na-Dene 0.0271

    Note the big difference in Jewish percent depending on whether there is
    British/French versus Spanish. I canlt be sure which is correct.

Basically its a lot of red with large blocks of Green(AI) Pink (ME) Blue (African) and some dark gray (South Asian) Other utilities like Gedmatch Oracle put me as Romanian and Mayan.

    We aren't North American tribes so it doesn't really count for us. We are Mayan/Columbian Caribbean and FTDNA read it just fine. Costa Rican and the Caribbean Columbian Coast is our mixture of AmerIndian
    I dont know how many samples FTDNA has for France and could be why they placed you elsewhere if you have confirmed French ancestry.

A lot of us in agreement it could be AI they cant read because they don't have enough samples. Not everyone is going to match the few AI samples they do have. On our AI my family members are given different tribes. My uncle has different tribes than I do and our ancestors are of none of the tribes they claim we match.

    He got
    48% Spanish/French, Orcadian/Finnish
    35% Mayan and Columbian Caribb
    17% Middle Eastern (Jewish Sephardim and some Arab)

    My theory for the Finnish is that after the Expulsion from Spain many Sephardic Jews went to Eastern Europe, ours went to New Spain. Though still genetically related to us their demographic are now in Russia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania etc... I have proof some of my family went east because I have people with my "Sephardic Spanish" surname who died in the Holocaust. I had no explanation for this until I got my dads FF back and saw the Finnish. I had to draw my own conclusion because no one in my family tree came from Eastern Europe. I started searching my Surname and found them in Scandinavia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Russia, Serbia, Croatia, Turkey, Italy, England.

    My mother is part Irish, Dutch and French-Norman 50%

    I came back
    67% French/Orcadian
    17% Mayan Columbian (father is Costa Rican)
    16% Middle Eastern Jewish

    I get the AmerIndian and Jewish from my father. He is Spanish Sephardic Jewish mixed with Spanish, Indian from Central America.

    I think that PF interpreted my Irish as Orcadian. My maternal DNA is found in Wales and Ireland, that's pretty Celtic if you ask me.

    Matches in

    Looks to me that there are a lot of matches that have ancestry in Ireland. There's also a lot of Irish/Scottish sounding surnames listed. Of course I have a lot of hispanic matches as well. The best match I have is a predicted 3rd cousin we share a total of 72.32 cm with the longest block being 50.46. We have about 10 or so cousins in common with 2 being 3rd cousins as well.

    Consider who the French are:
    Most French people are the descendants of Gauls (a western European Celtic people), as well as Italic people, Sarmatian peoples (Alans, Taifals), Bretons, Belgae, Aquitanians (Basques), Iberians, Ligurians, Suebi, Saxons and Greeks in southern France, mixed with the Germanic people arriving at the end of the Roman Empire such as the Franks, the Visigoths and the Burgundians, and Vikings known as Normans.



    So it seems to me that anyone in Western Europe may register as French.
    It suggests to me why pinpointing anyone's ancestry to a particular country is doubtful
    Thanks Brunetmj! This was helpful. I have to confess I was not aware of the French's origins as thoroughly as your explanation .

    Native American (Central American) Maya 19.60% +-0.67%
    Middle East Bedouin South, Jewish 27.32% +-8.83%
    Is it common for someone of Irish decent to have results such as these? I had no idea that I had any Middle Eastern ancestry at all and that is quite shocking. It's even more shocking that theres nothing there at all that implies any Irish ancestry. I have yet to recieve anything other than PF thus far but maybe once I have my matches in I'll have a better understanding to all of this.

    Someone did say that maybe my birth mothers ancestors lived in Ireland for several generations and that's why she said she was Irish.
