    My Origins Results

    From paper genealogy, using 3x and 4x great grandparents and going back about 300 years, I am:

    39% German
    23% English
    17% Irish
    10% Scottish
    6% French
    3% Swiss
    1% Dutch

    My Origins results just came back as:

    48% Scandinavian
    34% Western and Central Europe
    11% Southern European
    7% British Isles

    The high amount of Scandinavian was a surprise and makes me wonder if it is just because of that DNA being mixed in with my more recent Irish and Scottish lines so much, or actually possibility of some Viking or Norwegian farther back on a line or two??

    There is no southern European in the past 300 years, so that was also a surprise.

      I thought I'd add mine My known ancestry on paper is English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, Croatian, Polish and Maori. There is also Jewish ancestry on my maternal grandfathers side.

        How far is your Maori? It seems to entirely disappear...

            A 5th great grandmother on my maternal great grandfathers side. On paper I'm 1.7% Maori but on Gedmatch calculators I don't average more than 1.2%. I get more eastern Mediterranean in general and because of that I reckon I'm more Middle Eastern than Maori, which is odd but I guess that's how autosomal DNA works. My sister doesn't even average 1% Maori.

                I averaged out my Oceanian result on select Eurogenes calculators. I don't know if that's the "correct" way to arrive at an estimate but it seemed appropriate at the time.

                I haven't seen any other Maori/Polynesian people on this forum so I take it those who are and test are rare.

                I'm starting to see my genealogical ancestry and genetic ancestry are slightly different.

                    100% East Asian
                    - 62% Southeast Asian.
                    - 38% Northeast Asian.

                    Once raw data is out, will upload it to third party websites as I don't find the above breakdowns any useful.

                    ​​​​​​I identify as 100% Southern Han Chinese as all my grandparents were "natives" to the Southern China, each of them identify as Han. But I look a bit like Southeast Asians so I thought I might take this test to find out my hidden ancestry. Maybe there's hidden Indian or Southeast Asian ancestry (Indian and Chinese offsprings look like Southeast Asian). As result came back 62% Southeast Asian, I finally found my hidden ancestry, right? Only if you think Southeast Asian here means anything south to China, from Thai to Indonesia. But it seems like FTDNA do not follow the traditional ethnic breakdowns, they have their own definition of ethnicities. East Asia for them means anywhere from Siberia all the way down to Indonesia. Southeast Asia for them includes Southeastern China. Oceania is South Asia and North India is Central Asia. It seems like their definition is everywhere. So I am not sure what they mean by Southeast China. Traditionally it means Fujian, Guangdong and Hainan, but since they love to create their own definition, it could be anything.

                    So the conclusion is I learn nothing from this. I still do not know if I am 100% east asian or have some mixture of Southeast Asian DNA. The only thing I can rule out is not having South Asian DNA.

                      I had my father get tested and it's fairly accurate. He's an ethnic Punjabi of the Jat caste and Sikh background. I've checked my dad's family tree and they can confirm all of his great grandparents names and a few great great parents but certainly everyone is accounted for from at least around the 1830s prior to the British conquest of the Punjab in 1849.

                      The 87% central Asian is all North Indian which is no surprise and I was initially confusing as outside of FTDNA, Central Asia is considered to be the ex-Soviet Asian republics like Kazakhstan rather than Northern India & Afghanistan.

                      I imagine the 13% "European" component is just a broad estimation that isn't so common outside of Europe but not necessarily exclusive either. It was fun checking the raw data as well, it turns out he's got a recessive allele for blue eyes as well as an snp for green eyes, though no one in his immediate family have them.

                      The ancient origins page is a little confusing as he's apparently only 12% non-European on there.

                          Yes, the infamous '' somewhere right around this specific one million mile diameter geographical spot '' map blobs! Part of the reason I took Family Finder was to found out more about my father's family but also to see if I could by any possible chance have Central French roots. With 42 per cent Western European, there's a really good chance at that, but they can't even tell the difference between French, German, Belgian and Swiss. I understand that some people say those peoples are all the same, but there's a heavier dose of Gaulish blood in the French that is lacking sorely in Germans, and I can usually tell the difference between the two just looking at them. However, there are Irish who sometimes look a little like Central French and with that in my background I needed the presence of Western European to really help me figure myself out, so I guess my purpose is achieved, but for Heaven's sake FTDNA, at least draw a little line across already well defined Asian ethnic regions , or Germany and France!But it's really cool that you know you resemble that ethnic group and your genetics at least point in a general direction, unlike the age old '' I was told I was descended of Native Americans and I even have dark hair and eyes but my genetics don't show it'', and then come to found out the person was actually descended of Polynesian immigrants or something. Some guesses are spot on and others couldn't be farther from the mark!

                            It's my maternal grandfather that is complicating the results. Assuming he is not an NPE, he was born in Austria. In that polyglott Hapsburg empire, who knows what his ancestry was?

                            mine:

                            British Isles = 40%
                            Scandinavia = 29%
                            West-Central Europe = 16%
                            Iberia = 8%
                            S.E. Europe (which FTDNA includes Italy) = 7%

                            plus they added Ashkenazi = <1%


                            Ancient Origins:

                            Hunter-Gatherer = 46%
                            Farmer = 43%
                            Metal Age invader = 12%

                              I am Brazilian, of mostly European descent. 4 out of my 8 great grandparents are Italian (North), 2 are Portuguese (North and Central Portugal), and the other 2 are still ambiguous, as I don't have much information on them yet.

                              These are my results:

                              70% West and North European
                              7% Southeast Europe
                              12% West Middle East
                              7% North and Central America

                              Trace Results:
                              < 1% East Middle East
                              < 2% North Africa
                              < 2% Northeast Asia
