  • Magyar

    If I have no known eastern or central European ancestry what would 7% Magyar indicate?

    There was some discussion of the Magyar population cluster in an earlier FTDNA forum topic about myOrigins 3. The original post referred to a blog post by Kitty Cooper, "Comparing Ethnicity Estimates Across Companies," and specifically one of the responses (by a William Gunderson) to that blog post which talked about how he'd read that the Magyars invaded various other places in Europe. What we might glean from this is that it's possible to have some Magyar in our results due to such invasions. But, in a reply by John McCoy to the FTDNA thread at the first link above, John asks how do we know what the DNA of the ancient Magyars was like?

      Some people with italian ancestry got some Magyar or Slavic percentage (less than 10%).

        The Magnars are ethnic group native to Hungary. However, significant groups of people with Hungarian ancestry live in various parts of the world like US, Canada and etc.
