hi.

long story short, ive done 3 tests, myheritage, 23andme, and ancestry.
i put my ancestry data into wegene to see what it would give me for my mtdna. (i have already done my mtdna and got the results but i just wanted to see if it would be accurate)
got my results and it gave me a paternal haplogroup.
i had a look at my ancestry raw data and i had data on Y... looked at my MH data and also had data there...
is this normal? (i assumed not!?)
i emailed ancestry and they refuse to tell me anything.
i
im a fully functional woman and ive had a baby lol

I’m Assuming 23andme doesn’t show you with any Y Haplogroup.
If you don’t mind me asking:
Any MAJOR Discrepancy between AncestryDNA and 23andme results? If Yes, than the AncestryDNA results are NOT Yours, or are compromise.
Did you upload the 23andme raw-data to WeGene too.
What’s the AncestryDNA/WeGene Y Haplogroup?
Obviously if you had a child, it’s strange being assigned a Y Haplo..
Somebody maybe made a Mistake.

23andme assigns Y haplogroups to Women if they connect/Share results with the Father or a Brother.
It doesn’t mean that they have a Y chromosome. It’s just for reference, or curiosity.

23andme has zero Ydna for me.

ancestry and myheritage give the same close matches - they are defo both my kits.
this is tricky to explain but..
one test on one snp will give CC/GG/etc, but the same snp on the other test comes back as 0 0. its there but theres nothing in it.
ive noticed a couple of those.
wegene gives me R1b1a1a2, which i believe is R-M269. super common. ancestry doesnt give me one, but i can see data on the Y's in the raw. i also uploaded to promethease and i get mtdna and ydna markers

the kits are 10000% mine, because of the consistant matches.
ive asked a few people about this and the running theory seems to be chimerism. my eyes are different colour. my daughter was a twin extremely early on but the 2nd disappeared. i assume this is what happened to me

Wow, so you had a twin Brother at the time of Conception, but soon after you Blended in to 1 Person, but you retained His DNA + Y chromosome in some of your cells.
More or Less.
So if you test again with 23andme there is a chance that you could get a Y chromosome.
Interesting. :)

If it was chimerism, wouldn't you have two different sets of DNA, one with Y-DNA and one without? If your 23andme results lack the Y-DNA it would mean that it's a different set from the two other companies. But then it shouldn't be identical. It should be like a sibling DNA, with about 50% similarity.

i had another look at the 23andme data and it shows the SRY gene and a few others. no idea if that helps or hinders.

This happened with my mother. Her ancestrydna file uploaded to morely predicts R1b-L23 and or I1. Considering R1b-L23 is prevalent in Albanians I find it surprising. Of course she doesn't have a Y chromosome so Idk how it predicted it.

the same y group came up on morleys predictor but less specific. have you looked at her raw data?

No I haven't. Why?

Women also might have a few Y SNPs, just check this study, they tried to predict Y-DNA haplogroups of female samples (karyotype XX), of course they got nonsensical results (like D1b2a - Japanese haplogroup in Iceland!), based on just a few SNPs each:

interesting. still doesnt explain WHY women have some Y, or why i do :P
the y group i was given makes complete sense, and other men on that side of the tree have the same group.

Hm very strange

fascinating, still does not clarify WHY ladies have some Y, or why i do, the y aggregate i was given bodes well and other men on that side of the tree have a similar gathering...






















Not how long, but how well you have lived is the main thing

sorry for the slight necromancy, but have any of you seen this ?
