    I have the exact opposite situation, population finder had me as 100% Orcadian and MyOrigins shows 97% European and 3% Middle Eastern

Just curious if any other primarily European people have had a small African percentage disappear from their mix in this changeover.
      I'm not so sure it's such a big improvement for me. My results are wildly and weirdly different. It's good to remember that these kinds of tests should only be seen as a broad suggestion at this point, especially if you have a considerable mix of a population for which there is little data, as I do.

      My mother in law also showed a small percentage of sub-Saharan African in Population Finder, which was consistent through all the updates. Now in My Origins, she is 100% European. Interesting too, that the African population to which she was allied was San.

        I find it very hard to believe that my 24% Middle East - Jewish could just disappear. Unless of course my ancestry is non-Ashkenazi, and my Trans-Ural Peneplain is masking it.

          What is your known ancestry?

            You should still have a Jewish Diaspora component. Too many reports similar to your own.

                Known ancestry is Southern Italian, German.

                  Thank you. I think your ME is now Anatolian-Caucasus. That component is also found in Sicilians, Southern Italians, AJ, SJ, MJ, Turks, Armenians and most people in the Levant and Caucasus. It's very low in North Africa and Iberia, although it exists there too.

                    From People Finder to My Origins...still no detection of Indian ancestry

                    From genealogical research I know my father has 3/128ths (2.3%) ancestry from India and another 4% from Germany, Sweden, and the Netherlands. The other 94% is British Isles.

                    His My Origins results were 93% European Coastal Islands and 7% Middle Eastern-Afro-Asiatic. So they got close on the British Isles part but didn't detect the Germanic or Indian ancestry.

                    Other admixture tools such as 23andme's ancestry composition, and the various tools on Gedmatch.com's (MDLP, Dodecad, Eurogenes) all detect this Indian ancestry.

                    But for some reason FTDNA's My Origins comes up 7% Middle Eastern population for my father...and 0.0% no ancestry from Central and South Asia. At least the My Origins reduced that percentage down from the old Population Finder result of 13% Middle Eastern.

                    I'm guessing there is something in the Afro-Asiatic group that's picking up the Indian ancestry. Maybe my father's Indian ancestors were of Iranian origin and because there were no Iranian samples used in My Origins, it reading it as Afro-Asiatic? But one would think he should have some Central Asian or South Asian component.

                      You may be right, but then I wonder why both my father and uncle still have their "Finnish" (North Circumpolar) results. Maybe the myOrigins is not quite consistent when it returns the individual results.

                      Regarding the European Coastal Islands results me and my relatives got, I now translate that to "Western Nordic", the same as I earlier translated the PF result "Orcadian". I see that many people from the UK have the opposite result, European Northlands with no known Scandinavian ancestry. Probably those clusters are very much alike for historical reasons. And the PF "Finnish" result I earlier, at least in part, translated to "Eastern Nordic". And maybe that also explains why my earlier Finnish result is now maybe included in the European Northlands result.

                        That may explain my situation. Doctor McDonald shows me to be Polish, Irish, and Jewish with the latter coming at only a bit above 5%. It is a known component on my maternal side in Poland. It also showed up in Jtest. I thought MyOrigins would also pick it up, but no. A tad disappointed, because I know it is there, even if only 5%. It's on the maternal line, which is important to me, so yes, it would have been nice to see it show up. Perhaps the thresholds are different in MO?

                          here are my results.
                          Both of my parents are Turkish and are from south Turkey (Cilicia region. Can anybody explain the European cluster in my results?

                            I don't intend to complain over my ancestry results according to the new myOrigins. Still, there are a couple of issues that make me feel frustrated and confused. My Population Finder results showed 14.38% Middle Eastern, which seemed to be quite logical since 27.7% of my Family Finder "cousins" are Ashkenazi jews. myOrigins states that I actually have 1% Middle Eastern. Now, the Native American issue: PF results showed 36.4% Native American DNA; myOrigins states that I'm 23% NA (Beringian Expansion) plus 8% Asian Northeast, 31% on the whole. I'm perplexed!

                              Did your PF results specifically state Middle Eastern-Jewish with no other groups listed. If not, Middle East might mean non Jewish groups. On My Origins, Ashkenazis do not show an Asian cluster--they show Jewish Diaspora.

                                Hi,
                                My PF results showed 14.38% Middle Eastern, with different populations listed: Jewish, Palestinian, Druze, etc. But the fact is still there, is it not? PF gave me 14.38% Middle Eastern, myOrigins reduces this percentage to 1%. Confusing indeed.
