    Italians don't necessarily have middle eastern dna, especially if they come from the north. Also, the town of Asiago where both my parents come from was first settled by the Cimbrians, a Germanic tribe that is believed to have come from Denmark. I am, at least partly, descendant from them.

    Maybe the results differ depending on each side of the Atlantic you take the test...
    Anyway, I would apply for British citizenship right now




    May not be a bad time to make the move.

    I used to have 100% eupope,sorry 101 %, which was.
    british isles 55%
    Scandinavian 21%
    southern Europe 14%
    finland& Siberia 6%
    eastern Europe 5% I have now been given 99% Europe which is
    western & central Europe 59%
    british isles 25 %
    Scandinavia 15% which amounts to 99% and the 1% other is >2% south eastern Europe. which in two ways don't make sence.

    The reality you know is about to end...

    First, MyOrigins ridiculously overshoots Scandinavian ancestry and that is a known problem of the calculator... As an anecdote, you can take the example of a girl from Northern Italy who showed up as 25% Scandinavian. It can be 58%, but it can be 85% or it can be much much less than that... Second, Scandinavian show up in sons/daughters, whose parents dont have anything of Scandinavian and vice versa...

    In other words, it all depends on some circumstances...

    Using genetic analyses, scientists have discovered that Northern European populations -- including British, Scandinavians, French, and some Eastern Europeans -- descend from a mixture of two very different ancestral populations, and one of these populations is related to Native Americans.

    After 864 the low countries were relatively spared from Viking raids, probably because the Danes (most Vikings raiding the low countries came from Danmark) shifted their attention to England.

    ...which goes to say the Dutch were not Vikings, but were suffering in the hands of Vikings marauders until the bastards went away to bug other people...

    It's funny because my partner complained about how homogeneous his Native American is, and the other half of him was Spanish Conquistador and a bit of African. He was so more excited about my European descent as it is a lot more mixed.Be proud of your roots American's! Look in the mirror, you are us!
    As far as "despising British genes," perhaps I'm misunderstanding your meaning, or missed something; I'm not sure to which post(s) in this thread you are referring. Any that take issue with myOrigins showing British ancestry for them seem to do so because their known ancestry doesn't indicate having any British Isles, not because there's anything wrong with it. Could you point out which posts had such comments?

    I would love to talk to people with similar results. Also, anyone who can help me understand what this means would be great!

    Cheers,

    Hi Steve,

    I am English and I scored:

    British Isles: 44%
    Scandinavian: 36%
    South East European: 20%

    I have a lot of viking ancestry, increased also by my Dutch heritage seemingly, as a lot of Dutch are scoring around 58% Scandinavian. As a Brit, I find it really strange this American fascination with native american ancestry. My partner is Colombian, so is actually Native American around 55%. He looks very different to us! I even came up with some Native American on GED match and can assure you, I have no relatives from that side of the world.

In my case, previous FTDNA gave: 79% european - 45% IBerian; 23% British isles; 11% eastern/west europe. Now, European: 72% - BRITISH ISLE 42%!!!!!!!!!!; Southeeast europe??????-26%; Iberian - 4%?????. By this score, I am british descdent?????????Someone here could explain me. Portuguese descendents never ever have this score. What could explain this??????someone would know?
    MyOrigins get confused with your admixtures. But how far does your genealogy goes? from which parts of Portugual do they come from? Any Islands?

    British Isles 96%
    South East Europe 2%

    trace results come out as:

    South Central Asia 2%
    East Europe 2%


    The South Central Asia is interesting as this has been thrown up on some of my GED Match calculations.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cheers, Ade.
    Then of course you are not 100% European.
