I was hoping someone would be able to help me make more sense out of my results. It's a lot for me to sift through and maybe someone with more knowledge can help me to understand it, but what I get from 23andMe and GEDmatch runs is that my background is various African groups, various European groups, some Native American and on a few runs a noticeable (4-5%) Red Sea/South West Asian score.


TIA guys and apologies about the hunk of text

You are mostly sub-saharan African, with a hint of European blood.
Are you African-American, or from South Africa?

The native Amercan probably means he's African American. He's like the opposite of me. The African and European scores are ~opposite, and the native American ancestry is around the same.

Thanks you guys for replying. Yes I am African-American, I was interested in seeing if there was any stronger affiliation with any of the African groups and given the areas where slaves were taken from alongside this info would I be too far off in guessing that a major portion of my ancestors were from Bantu speaking groups in West Africa? As for the European portion my best guess would be British/Irish with some admixture from the Norway-Sweden areas. The southern European portion I don't have much of a clue on as 23andMe places that portion with Italians while other admixture runs only ever give me various areas of Spain/Portugal and at other times Eastern Mediterranean. Like many Americans whose families have been here for awhile the Native-American DNA is not surprising to see in those small amounts. Oh and of some interest my mtdna haplogroup is H3-t16311c(H3h and H3h2 are also close matches) while my Y-chrom halpogroup is E1b1a7a.

You guys thoughts on this are welcome and thanks again for the help

H3-t16311c(H3h and H3h2 are also close matches) while my Y-chrom halpogroup is E1b1a7a.

H3h2? This means that at some point there was an illegitimate child born probably to a single European woman 100's of years ago in your ancestry. It's the same situation for Professor Henry Louis Gates. This is a surprise because I assumed all Euro blood in African Americans was from rape.

It's the same situation for Professor Henry Louis Gates. It is most likely true, but I'm sure 100 years ago you could find many legitimate marriages of mixed couples, considering size of population of US.

Thanks you guys for the comments, I guess we are teaching each other some new things lol. The ironic thing is that the h3 comes from mother who is mixed race but her father is the one who isn't black while on my fathers side my grandfather has a white female ancestor who couldn't carry on her relationship due to racist attitudes at the time.
How common is it for African Americans to have Middle Eastern admixture or is this an error on the tools assignment?

Very informative post! I'm having issues interpreting my results as well, so this helped a lot!
