So as an ashkenazi jew with these results, does this conclude that I am a direct descendant of israel? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Yes and No. You can trace both of your lines back to Israel. However by the time of the Diaspora, Ashkenazis had admixture (via conversions) with European populations, particularly southern Italy and central Europe to a lesser extent. A number of studies demonstrate this autosomal admixture pattern for Ashkenazis. If you go to Gedmatch (when it is running), programs such as Dodecad and Eurogenes will reveal your particular admixture of regional components.

    It probably comes from both of them; apart it doesn't show up in their tests (too small) but combined in you, it does.

    I have the same situation showing a 3% trace of an area for one of my daughters that is not in my kit or my wife's.

    I had >99% NE European/Finnish in Population Finder, here's the MyOrigins result:

    99% European
    -83% North Circumpolar
    -13% European Northlands
    -3% European Coastal Plain

    ...but why is that "North Circumpolar" blob oddly specific to Eastern Finland, when the description claims it "stretches from Lapland to Greenland"?

    The world is not such a wide place at the top and the bottom. The North Circumpolar cluster began around the arctic as hunter-gatherer peoples. They have carried their genes down to the modern era. The North Circumpolar stretches from Lappland east to Greenland. Though genetically diverse, the root of many of these populations is a genetic signature found most often in Finnic peoples.
    Seems very vague written ("the root of many of these peoples is a genetic signature..."?) and it doesn't make any sense to lump all of these populations together as a single "ethnicity"!

    Frankly, this seems like an attempt to "sex up" the population finder results at the expense of actual ancestry information. In my case I know that this "cluster" points to Finnish ancestry, but if I didn't have that information, what would this result tell me?

    Central/South Asian

    Viewed my MyOrigins results. Not surprised. The results pretty much corresponds with what my AncestryDNA and Gedmatch results stated. The only category I have a question about is the Central/South Asian. Does this category represents Ameridian heritage considering I have 70% African Ancestry? My results are attached.

    I'm adopted and don't have much information on my birth family. I only found out who my birth mother was a month ago, and her father's line is supposed to be Portuguese. Other sites had me with a considerable amount of Scandinavian DNA, which was really exciting for me because I'm not at all dark like how my mother's paternal relatives were described except for brown eyes. I was thinking maybe the Scandinavian came from my father's line or possibly my mother's mother. Unfortunately, I don't have those surnames to trace. I was really hoping to see Scandinavia on the new myOrigins map, but all I got was 2% North Circumpolar. With all the migrating the Norse did, is it possible I still have Scandinavian DNA with the results I got? Here are the others:
    53% European Coastal Plain
    28% European Coastal Islands
    11% North Mediterranean Basin
    5% Eurasian Heartland
    2% North African Coastlands

    If anyone can help me make sense of this, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Parents' myOrigins Results/Finnish & French Revealed

    I finally viewed my parents' myOrigins results by a process of deleting my browser history, etc.

    My mother's Finnish genetic heritage is differentiated on her map, separate from her Scandinavian one (but not on mine). My dad's map definitely shows a heat spot, so to speak, centering on France, Germany and Switzerland (also unlike mine). My mother has an even stronger north Mediterranean coastal background than me on her map -- and I have seen the western Mediterranean emphasized for her on GEDmatch.

    What's noticeably different about my map? I have a slight coloration in the Israel-Jordan area (an additive effect perhaps with contributions from both of my parents).

    Definitely an improvement over PF, but some things are quite puzzeling

    My old PF results:
    Europe (Western European), population: Orcadian: 93,57% ±7,89%,
    Europe, population: Orcadian, Russian, Finnish: 6,43% ±7,89%

    myOrigin results:
    European 100 %
    - European Northlands 79 %
    - European Coastal Islands 21 %

    Where have my Finnish results gone? I do know that I descend from a few Finns. And what does European Coastal Islands mean? I know of no British ancestors. But I know of five lines from a man probably from Friesland, born about 1550, who immigrated to Norway. Could that be the explanation?

    My father's old PF:
    Europe (Western European), population: Orcadian: 75,64% ±2,43%,
    Europe, population: Russian, Finnish: 24,36% ±2,43%

    myOrigin results:
    European 99 %
    - European Northlands 74 %
    - European Coastal Islands 11 %
    - European Coastal Plain 8 %
    - North Circumpolar 6 %

    I don't know of any Finnish ancestry among my fathers lines, but they must be there somehow, because he has got many Finnish matches, even if none of them are among the matches used to generate the myOrigins results, as far as I can tell. But then it is not so easy to tell, since all one can see is "Europe 100 %", "Europe 97 %" etc., and no further breakdown. So that feature is pretty useless. The rest is probably right, even if I am not sure what European Coastal Islands mean in my father's case, either.

    My maternal uncle's old PF:
    Europe (Western European), population: Orcadian: 84,84% ±2,47%,
    Europe, population: Russian, Finnish: 11,31% ±1,99%,
    Middle East, population: Iranian, Jewish, Mozabite, Palestinian, Adygei, Bedouin, Druze: 3,85% ±1,36%

    Because of the ME results, I was very anxious to see what the myOrigins results would be in comparition:

    European 97 %
    - European Northlands 80 %
    - European Coastal Islands 8 %
    - North Circumpolar 5 %
    - North Meditteranian Basin 4 %
    Middle Eastern 3 %
    - Anatolia & Caucasus 3 %

    Even if I still don't know what this ME result mean, I am happy that it's now broken down to one area, instead of "everything". I also see that three of his matches each have 1 % ME in their results. But is it ancient, or what? The North Meditteranian result is new, and I don't understand what that could mean, either. Perhaps also something old?

    I will close this long post with some of my mother's first cousin's results. I didn't write down his PF, but I remember that he had over 40 % Finnish result (not Russian Finnish, just Finnish). He now has North Circumpolar 12 %, and he probably has more Finnish DNA than my uncle and mother, on his father's side, that we don't have in common. But the most curious thing is this: He has 1 % New World result: Bering Expansion! How could that be? I see that one of his matches also has one 1 % NW. Could that be from shared ancestors in Central Asia a long, long time ago, before the Bering Expansion took place? I don't think it probable that he has Native American DNA. Anybody have thoughts around this?

    In my case MyOrigins is a huge improvement over Population Finder, but unfortunately falls short when compared to the fine grain detail that has become the hallmark of Dr. McDonald's personal analysis. I'm happy with what the new product is telling me (PF results were meaningless), but just a tad disappointed that I did not see the finer detail that Dr. McDonald provided. Still, overall, MyOrigins is a huge step in the right direction.

    Interesting results

    Got MyOrigins for maternal grandfather, maternal grandmother, and myself. My grandpa's matches up very well with what we know of his origins and with the other DNA tests he's done.

    Mine has me at 96% European (with no coastal plain which I find odd given my grandpa's huge percentage + my substantial French background, but hey) and 4% Middle Eastern which is better than the ~10 Middle Eastern PF had me at.

    My grandma's results are the weirdest. She's at 93% European and the mixture they're giving her seems fairly accurate, but then she's got 6% Jewish Diaspora. I guess it's reading her old Middle East component as Jewish. No idea where that's coming from. No Jewish lineage that I know of. My mother (her daughter) showed no Jewish in her results at 23&Me.

I don't know of any East Asian ancestry in my family. Plus, East Asian immigration to Puerto Rico (where I'm from) was very scarce throughout its history. What are the chances that 4% "East Asian' in reality corresponds to Native American ancestry instead? Anybody with known Native American ancestry getting "East Asian" as well?
    My NA percent went down from 8.6% to 6% and now shows 2% East Asian. In the little Shared Origins list (which only displays the closer matches) all of my 20 matches having New World also show East Asian in roughly the same 3:1ratio. And all my 0% New World matches show 0% East Asian. Your theory seems to be right.

    I'm not entirely sure on all my branches, the only two confirmed English branches were from Oldham/Royton area in the early to mid 19th century and Kent county in colonial times. I also have some Scottish branches and Scots Irish branches but don't know exactly where they were from.

    Finnish seems to work for me.

    Anyone know what cluster central-European is divided into (Austria more specific)?
