    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.
