    Nope no JD component just Anatolia-Caucus

    What is your known ancestry?

    I find myOrigins to be a big improvement over the old Population Finder. However, on Population Finder, I was 97% European and 3% sub-Saharan African. (The African component was unknown to me, but not very surprising.) On myOrigins I'm 100% European. 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 have the exact opposite situation, population finder had me as 100% Orcadian and MyOrigins shows 97% European and 3% Middle Eastern

    I'm from Brazil and these are my results. The bigger divisions - European vs Africa etc. - are for the most part typical of what I've gotten; the Middle Eastern component appears inflated in comparison with 23andMe's results, but in this case I think 23andMe is wrong - 23andMe appears to be passing a lot of Middle Eastern ancestry off as general Southern European. I don't know much of my ancestry but many of the do-it-yourself tools from Dodecad and Eurogene projects, which I find very reliable, also point to my having noticeable Middle Eastern ancestry compared to people of similar background as me. The one problem I have with my results in myOrigin is the smaller subdivisions, more precisely the European ones; they don't fit very much with the ones I have either from 23andMe or the aforementioned tools. In particular, the fact that the European Coastal Plain is my dominant component in this tool, being 5 times bigger than the Iberian component, seems wrong - on 23andMe, the percentages of Southern European and North European are the same as myOrigin's but are disposed in reverse order, that is, I'm 5 times more Southern European than North European, and this result is confirmed by the fact that, on both 23andMe and FTDNA, I have many more relatives from Latin America and the Iberian peninsula than in anywhere else in the Old World. The rest of the subdivisions - a strong western African subcomponent within the African component, for example - are fine. What I'd like to dig in more are my European and Middle Eastern results; if users from Latin America and Iberia could post their results, and comment if they've found them a bit off on some parts, I'd appreciate. Unfortunately myOrigins doesn't allow us to see our matches' results in great detail.

    A more likely cause for that ME is the Roman activity in the British Isles, the fact that it disappeared probably means that it was shone to be Euro-Mediterranean and not in fact Middle Eastern.
    My comments are based on a couple of DNA articles I came across while trying to explain the possible admixture myself:

    http://dna-explained.com/2012/07/24/...osomal-result/

    http://www.tahlequahdailypress.com/l...DNA-questioned

    http://www.examiner.com/article/dna-...he-middle-east

    As far fetched as it might sound, there are several possible explanations of how the Eastern Tennessee Cherokees may have had an admixture of Middle Eastern DNA. Portuguese Moors sold into indenture by British captors, Sephardic Jews brought to the New World by the Spanish in the 1600s, or the 300 or so Moors and Turkish slaves dumped on the Carolina coast by Francis Drake.

    While your explanation of Roman activity in England could explain the presence of ME DNA in PF, I would think that events that distant would have produced results much smaller than the 2.4%.

    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
    I had the same question about my brother's previous PF and the My Origins. It seems that the Finnish is in with the European Northlands mix. That's my conclusion after reading the description of European Northlands.

    Disappearing ME

    I just checked the MyOrigins results for my brother and myself. Under PF we were listed as 97.6% European(Orcadian) and 2.4+-% Middle Eastern. The Middle Eastern part was a mystery to us because we are predominately Scots-Irish, with some German ancestry and many anecdotal tales of great great grandmothers who were part Native American, usually said to be Cherokee or Cree. We found no NA DNA, but read a few articles about how some Eastern Tennessee Cherokee populations tested as of Middle Eastern origin. I believed that to be the most likely explanation, and somewhat of a vindication of my parents stories. Now, with MyOrigins, that Middle Eastern 2.4% has disappeared for us both, and we are 100% European?!

    The MO breakdown has us as:
    51% European Coastal Islands
    45% European Coastal Plains
    4% North Circumpolar

    The 4% North Circumpolar appears to be Finnish. I'm wondering if this lends any credence to the stories of some of our Irish ancestor being of Viking stock? Seems I traded my Indian ancestors for Norsemen.

    My real concern is, if the ME DNA disappeared because its now considered too small of a percentage to register, is MyOrigins really a refinement of DNA analysis, or is it merely a different model with weighting that detects ancestry not readily picked up in the old Population Finder model, but at the cost of being less precise in other areas (seems most people who listed Middle Eastern DNA before have a reduced percentage with Origins)?

    Population Finder and My Origins

    They should have kept the other one!!! Why remove one thing for another?

    One change, which I was pleased to see, was that the French origin under Pop. Finder has been replaced with an %8 European Coastal plain in MyOrigin. In fact that percentage is about how much West German ancestry is predicted by the written genealogical records I have examined. Population Finder had been puzzling to me before because France did not contribute very much if at all to my genealogy according to what I had known.

    Also, under Pop. Finder I had 27% Romanian, Russian, and Finnish ancestry. In MyOrigins, I still had the Slavic/Russian (Trans-Ural Peniplain) area and the Finnish (North Circumpolar), but the Romanian is gone. Now I have 22% North Mediterranean basin, which is new to me. Matches that have come in that show that I have distant cousins in Sweden and Poland. However I have not found the source of the North Mediterranean basin yet. There are no Italians or Spanish as far as I know. I am continuing to research that area.

    In Dr. McDonalds analysis, I showed around 16% Native American ancestry. In my GEDmatches, I show around 17% NA ancestry. In "My Origins", I show 11% New World and 4% East Asian. 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?
    I started a thread on the East Asian being pulled from Native American in Mexicans at http://forums.familytreedna.com/showthread.php?t=34997

    I should have thought of asking other Latinos with Native American ancestry if they were seeing the same thing.

    Here are my results. I'm Cuban of Canary Island descent. For the most part it seems pretty accurate and it matches with paper trail. The only thing that stands out as strange is the British percentage.
