  • Gedmatch Rare SNP Utility.

    I am curious to know what this utility is actually telling me from the "geographic origins".

    Is this possibly a more foretelling tool for revealing our ethnic background? It seems to be consistent with the admix calculator results, but appears to be a higher resolution as these are actual shared snps at similar mutation rates with actual people from these locations. In each instance where a geographic location is given, the people "claim" two have all four grandparents coming from that location.

    On the 500 marker level, I am returning an overwhelming amount of snps with people from the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Cameroon, then to a lesser but very significant degree in, Eritrea, Sicily, Cuba, Mexico,Morocco, El Salvador, Bahamas, Romania,Lithuania, Haiti, Poland,Ashkenazi, Guatemala, France, Mayan, Puerto Rico, Iran, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, and the UK (surprised by how low this actually was).

    What, if anything, can I take away from this?
