    Everyone considered him "German", his family is told to have been living in the same region for several hundred years...there is one illegitimate child in his direct family line, from then on these ancestors looked like Italians... Oh boy. But he looks rather like a Viking, blondish hair and a red beard

    So, my husband still was rather astonished when he looked at this results:
    98% European and 2% Middle Eastern (Asia Minor).

    The European part is split into:
    38% British Isles
    28% Scandinavia (VIKINGS! YESSS!)
    25% Southern European (Italians, I tell you!)
    7% Eastern European

    So, could the "British Isles"-part just stand for Celtic German heritage?
    Plus, looking at his family tree, the Scandinavian influence might date back to ancestors several hundred years ago because we haven't found them yet. My husband's hometown is close to an area which was invaded by the Vikings as they went upstream the river Rhine. Maybe some of them just decided to stay there ;-)
    his Southern European does look a bit on the high side (on average it is expected that Germans will score some though)

    his British and Scandinavian are also a bit on the high side, but since the specific West and Central part is so hard to pick out it can unstably favor going to anything else if it starts looking even a touch more like that

      – 2% Scandinavia
      – 2% Asia Minor

      More recently, I got the following “Geno 2.0 Next Generation” results which seem more accurate than the “FTDNA” results since I have not any known British origin in my family:

      – 53% Western and Central Europe
      – 47% Southern Europe

      Reference Populations in Geno 2.0 Next Generation database which are most similar to me in terms of the genetic markers I carry:

      – My First Reference Population: Tuscan (Italy)
      – My Second Reference Population: French

      Y-DNA Haplogroup: R-Z160 (subclade of R1b - R-U106 - L47)
      mtDNA Haplogroup: J1c5c1 (autochthonous of the Basque population)

      I am Swiss (as are my father and mother)
      Hmm that's interesting. I thought everyone who transferred Geno over here got the exact same results on both tests, but his came out so different. Not sure I've seen that happen before for anyone. Not sure what to make of it. Maybe if you do the Geno transfer they don't bother to run their own MyOrigins but just copy over the Geno %? So only if you have tested with FamilyFInder first do you get the actual MyOrigins test?

        My Origins on FTDNA are:

        European 91%

        British Isles 55%
        Scandinavia 34%
        Southern Europe 2%

        Middle Eastern 9%

        Asia Minor 9%

        Always thought we were Euro American, assuming we originated in the UK, yet there are hints of Iberian & Italy/Greece, plus that Middle Eastern at 9% throws me. Ancestry indicates Middle Eastern as Caucausus and only 2%.

          Here are my MyOrigins results:

          European: 90%
          • British Isles: 74%
          • Southern Europe: 16%

          Middle Eastern: 11%
          • Asia Minor: 11%


          This fits fairly close to what I know from my family history research. I am roughly half Irish and a quarter English, one eighth Italian, and one eighth German. MyOrigins shows no sign of my German ancestors (they are from Bavaria), and it includes Asia Minor, which is a mystery to me! Could my German ancestors have originally migrated from Turkey centuries ago? I suppose it is quite possible. The new ancientOrigins feature shows that I am 45% Farmer, who started migrating from Anatolia to central Europe in the Neolithic Era. Still, I am not about to trade in my lederhosen for a şalvar! I'm still part German.

            Here is the kit I manage:

            MyOrigins

            European: 47%

            -British Isles: 27
            -Southern Europe: 18
            -Western and Central Europe: 2

            Middle Eastern: 45%

            -Asia Minor: 21
            -Eastern Middle East: 16
            -North Africa: 8

            Jewish Diaspora: 6%

            -Ashkenazi Diasporum: 6

            I'm American (family here since 1800's at least) and according to family, we were mainly English, Irish, with possibly some French. I'm not sure where the ME, Jewish, or African is coming from

              I tested with FTDNA Family Finder in 2014 and with Geno 2.0 Next Generation in 2016. The percentages about Southern Europe are almost the same, but the percentages concerning other regions are quite different. The results from Geno 2.0 Next Generation seem more accurate since I have not any known British origin.

                Now what? My dad said his dad said we had Native American in us. I wish I knew more but does not look like it in this dna result.

                My ancient origins are

                  That's interesting. Have you gone back and looked at the FF results again recently? Maybe those were old results, pre-MyOrigins?

                    The Roman Empire had an extended stay in England, sending soldiers from all over the Empire to man the forts. Sometimes the soldiers married local girls. Take a look to see if there was a Roman fort near where your English ancestors lived.

                      Do you think that could account for such a high percentage though? All the ME, Jewish and African added up is over 50%, which seems pretty high for such a distant connection. I don't really know how everything works however, I could be way off base.

                          The way I understand it, the Family Finder results are (1) an estimate and (2) compile the results from both of your parents. But you're right, that does seem like an awfully high percentage for a Roman-times connection. Color me "stumped."

                            Hello, Marcela

                            Which country are you come from?

                            Perhaps MO makes some confusion between Native American and Sami people. Also it is a little strange the result of Central Asia (Afghanistan), although 'My Ancestral History' explains that the Central Asian cluster has appeared in the Pacific and the New World.

                              Certanlly, north african contribuition come from your french side. I mean, considering your results and you mentioned about your ancestries, your french ancestry should come from southern france.

                                My results are:

                                61% Western and Central Europe
                                36% Scandinavia
                                2% East Central African
                                1% West Africa

                                Most of the Scandinavian results are probably the result of viking migration a thousand years ago, but I do have a few dozen speculative matches with Scandinavian people.
