    It's sad to see that after all this time on the forum you still don't understand what is mitochondrial DNA. You only inherited from a single mtDNA haplogroup. All the others in your ancestry are...

    They do simplify this way. But that's nowhere near as bad as to say that a Mesolithic Briton is a Lombard.

    Actually I haven't seen the use of the term Roman on their site. They categorise the...
  3. Did you have an imaginary friend as a child?

    I recently became aware of the fact that imaginary friends are extremely common among children. An article in Psychology Today reports that 77% of the kids interviewed had an imaginary friend. A ...

    I am not sure that this is very useful considering the low number of samples. At present the data for modern countries and regions remains more informative in that regard. But anyway autosomal DNA is...

    Here are the three best books I have read over the past year. All three are now in my all time Top 10.

  7. Caution on the interpretation of MyTrueAncestry results

    I have noticed that many forum members have uploaded their genome on MyTrueAncestry. It's a very convenient tool to compare oneself to ancient populations. A word a caution is necessary though.

    Vbulltin is the software running the forum, so obviously it is related to it. It's probably a compatibility issue with some versions of Chrome. I have never experienced the issue with other browsers.

    Here is what I wrote.





    So, I mentioned twice that Belgians have about 25% of ancestry from Denmark, not 50%. The remaining 25% are tribes that lived between the Rhine and Denmark and were...

    This expansion map is from the 3rd century CE, that is over a thousand years after the first Germanic expansion from the Danish Urheimat! I agree with that migration path from the Rhine to Belgium,...
  11. I don't understand why you get all worked up...

    I don't understand why you get all worked up about this and why you vehemently try to prove that Belgians/South Dutch have no ancestry from Denmark. All Germanic peoples originated around Denmark (+...

    There is no doubt that the North Dutch are very close genetically to the Danes, while the South Dutch are close to the Belgians. That's common knowledge in population genetics. But that is not at all...

    Yes, I consider a GD of 7 to be a close match. Among my family members the GD for the same samples can vary by several points. My (paternal) grandmother scores a GD of 2 for Franks, but my mother...

    When I started this thread 10 years ago I mentioned that I identified with Germanic (Frankish), Celtic and Italic/Roman ancestry. I have since estimated that my ancestral blend would be approximately...

    Most genes related to health are found in all populations at a national level, I don't think that interpersonal differences would affect life expectancy or overall health scores significantly. It may...

    I have checked the updated results of 7 Belgians. The good news is that the percentage of misattributed British ancestry has decreased from a range of 60~80% to 8~35% for most people, except two who...
