Since my other thread got invaded by a *****, ill try again. These are my results:

Autosomal
Europe : 85.5%
Near East( Cyprus and Armenia):13.3%
South Asia : 1.2%

Y haplotype: I2( I-S17250)

mtDNA: U5b2a

My question is, how accurate are the results for 1.2%? I dont have any ancestor from there or any of them married a gypsy.

Can it be that some of the south Asians tested had some similarities, due to ancient Greek colonies there?

Please, answer seriously.
Thanks.

It could be ancient dna traces, or noise.
LivingDNA frequently assign some Asian results to Europeans.
Disregard it.
Keep in mind that they compare similarities in the data, maybe they are 1.2% ancient, ancient Greeks.
Every DNA testing Company will give different results, some you’ll like, some you won’t.
Get used to, and don’t take this results literally.
You should Apologize to the Gipsy, and move on.

Are your parents native of the region or people who settled there during the exchange of population with Turkey?

The best thing to do with any results from dna testing companies is to compare to other people of your nationality, or other people tested. If everybody gets it, or a lot of people, it's unlikely to be within a genealogical time frame.

As others have said, this company seems to give small amounts of South Asian to many Europeans. That probably means that given the clusters they use, this is left over or excess ancestry perhaps from migrations from the steppe after the Bronze Age ones.

Because many migrations from Europe, especially Greece, happened towards there

Your Harappa and MDLP results do fit what you're. Try also with MDLP 23KB and MDLP 16 modern, there are many Greek reference samples there.

You should also upload your raw data on Genesis Gedmatch

One way to see if its just a misread of some other component or noise is to save up 99$ if you can and buy a 23andme test and compare and contrast by uploading their raw data to gedmatch and other sites like Geneplaza. If it still shows up and you are curious you can test both your parents to get a clearer picture.

LivingDna didnt give me any south asian

I think so.

The other day, I recalled this thread, and the question of why some Europeans get this odd tiny South Asia component. Perhaps this can provide some explanation to it; there's probably Greek or other European ancestry (i.e. Scythian-like) being picked up in this region.

South Asia-related ancestry


This is a confidence group for Balochistan ancestry. It includes Balochistan, Sindh and Pashtun populations. As an intermediate sized population grouping for Balochistan, it is likely that your ancestry includes all three populations, or your ancestry from these regions is small and the exact origin is uncertain.

Pakistan lies at a crossroads. The midway point between the Iranian Plateau, the Central Asian steppes, and the Indian subcontinent, the country has forever been home to a plethora of different ethnic groups. Situated across its southwestern mountains and plains, Balochistan is a perfect example of how this cradle of genetic diversity can lead to a unique cultural and regional outlook.

Home to (amongst other groups) the Balochi, Makrani, and Brahui people, the genetic signature of this region owes much of its origins to the sometimes ancient ties this area had with the lands surrounding the western Indian Ocean. Closely related to neighbouring Pakistani groups, Balochistan's location towards the historical Persian and Islamic centres of power has influenced its history. Genetic markers relating to Iranian, Indian, West Asian and African people can all be found here, reflecting the generations of migration, trade, and invasions that the region has witnessed. Political boundaries here often don’t reflect the reality of the historical territories of various states and tribes that exist here, and so it is common to also find the Balochistan signature in parts of Western Iran, Sindh, and Southern Afghanistan. Ruled over at various points in time by Greek, Persian, and Indian states, the people of Balochistan are a product of thousands of years of multiculturalism and globalisation.

Unknown to many people, the southwestern Pakistani province of Sindh was once the heart of one of the world’s first great civilisations. Today, all that remains of the Indus Valley Civilisation are windswept and long abandoned cities, only visible through decades of archaeological work. With no enduring monuments left behind like the towering pyramids of Egypt to speak of, the original inhabitants of Sindh still hold many secrets. 3700 years have passed since their great civilisation disappeared, and since then many people from across Asia have shaped the genetic and cultural makeup of this ancient region.

The gateway between Iran and India, the genetic signature of Sindh today is most similar to the nearby Pashtun and Punjabi people. Here, an expansive history of migration and invasion can be read through the DNA of the region’s inhabitants. The original people of the Indus Valley Civilisation probably reached this area via a southern coastal route out of Africa, and after their collapse, a group dubbed the ‘Ancestral North Indians’ appear to have moved in from further west, intermingling with pre-existing populations. More recently, Greek, Indian, Persian, Mongol and British armies have all claimed this region for themselves. Today, the Sindhi live in Pakistan alongside many other related ethnic groups that call the country their home, including Pashtuns, Balochis, and Kalash.

First settled as far back as 50,000 years ago, the rugged mountainous regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan today are inhabited by many different ethnic groups. Of these, few are as widespread as the Pashtun, who form a sizeable majority across the south of Afghanistan and a notable minority in Central Pakistan. Until recently, anthropologists had to rely on ancient oral traditions and tantalising archaeological evidence to piece together the ancestry of the many groups in the region, an endeavour that has been revolutionised in recent times with the great advances made in genetic analysis.

Genetically similar to neighbouring Indian populations to the southeast, the Pashtun homeland lies at a juncture between the Central Asian steppes, the Indian subcontinent, and the Iranian plateau. As such, the Pashtun genetic signature contains markers commonly associated with many surrounding peoples. This is not surprising - Afghanistan and Pakistan have seen countless migrations and invasions over the years, and Indian, Persian, Greek, Arab, Central Asian, and Mongol incursions have left varying levels of both cultural and genetic legacies from across Eurasia. The Pashtun of Pakistan and Afghanistan today are more closely related to each other than to other ethnic groups in their own countries, a throwback to the often shifting borders that accompanied these historical population movements.


This is the component on "Cautious" mode, which give a better description of it. We know that the Greeks were in this part of the world. I recall from this study, that it is theorized that the Kalash, who are in this cohort; indeed have Greek-like DNA.


It is tempting to hypothesize that the Roopkund_B individuals descend from Indo-Greek populations established after the time of Alexander the Great, who may have contributed ancestry to some present-day groups like the Kalash21.

I think you do not have to worry that you have 1.2% of S Asia. Gypsies are probably only a more recent migration from South Asia, but populations have always crossed migrations from both sides. South Asia has about a third of the global population and its impact is felt globally, and not only throughout Europe. lool. 1.2%? What good joke.
By the way, can you say the components of 85.5% of Europe?!

As it is for Gedmatch calculators, consumer genomics tests have their own exclusive standards for classifying components. I wouldn't pay much attention to it. There's too much overlap, as I pointed out in my previous post. Instead, it is better to use the raw data for calculators that utilize ancient samples. Then draw conclusions based on findings in archaeogenetics papers.

(thanks, for sharing ... :)

... then, by the same argument, we should apply the same conclusion to the Romans and Britannia.

The difference is:

they say they didn't detect Roman DNA in the Brits.

... maybe, some of those DNA segments in our UK results, have been allocated to the British Genetic makeup from the beginning of DNA testing.

That’s why they couldn’t find it.

... the End result is that they assign Britain to Italians, when they should assign Italian to the British. I Think.

Hello Salento. I agree with you. The best alternative is to purchase a new kit for testing with the new chip. All the "big" ones in the market updated their chips in 2019.

This was the case of Gene by Gene (FTDNA) and MyHeritage, for example. Since the beginning of March 2019 MyHeritage DNA done an upgrade to a new and more advanced DNA chip.

The chips that now is used for reading DNA samples in their lab and converting them to digital data are developed by Illumina, a company considered to be the “Intel” of DNA processing. These chips are produced with very sophisticated technology. They are not electronic chips but are made of glass slides harboring millions of tiny beads. Each bead is coated with synthetically generated DNA strands of about 50 nucleotides each that serve as probes. When the DNA of a customer is placed on a chip, it binds with the probes and generates an optical signal that is read by laser using lab devices produced by Illumina. This is a simplistic description of what goes on behind the scenes at the lab. See the video below:

Until recently, MyHeritage DNA tests were processed using Illumina’s Omni chip. To provide their customers with a more robust and powerful analysis, they decided to upgrade to a new and more advanced custom-designed version, based on Illumina’s Global Screening Array (GSA) chip. The process of designing the content of the new chip and working with Illumina for them to manufacture it for them took more than a year.

My results displayed in 28th july, 2019 already were processed using Illumina’s Global Screening Array (GSA) chip. Because of this I believe that the raw data I uploaded to LivingDNA is more accurate and, at least for me, LivDNA results must be considered precise, even beeing an upload of data raw of another company.

Cheers :)

Hello Salento. I agree with you. The best alternative is to purchase a new kit for testing with the new chip. All the "big" ones in the market updated their chips in 2019.

This was the case of Gene by Gene (FTDNA) and MyHeritage, for example. Since the beginning of March 2019 MyHeritage DNA done an upgrade to a new and more advanced DNA chip.

The chips that now is used for reading DNA samples in their lab and converting them to digital data are developed by Illumina, a company considered to be the “Intel” of DNA processing. These chips are produced with very sophisticated technology. They are not electronic chips but are made of glass slides harboring millions of tiny beads. Each bead is coated with synthetically generated DNA strands of about 50 nucleotides each that serve as probes. When the DNA of a customer is placed on a chip, it binds with the probes and generates an optical signal that is read by laser using lab devices produced by Illumina. This is a simplistic description of what goes on behind the scenes at the lab. See the video below:

Ok Duarte, You’ve convinced me to get the new MyHeritage Kit instead.

if I don’t like my results, I’m going to totally blame you! LOL

(Seriously) :grin:

Precise or not, I already tested with LivDna.

Hi Salento.
You still have a chance to think about it. Next I post all supported ethnicities:

If you still want to purchase the Kit, please, don't kill me if the results do not suit you. LOL :petrified::grin::good_job::smile:
