    How can MyOrigins be even considered reliable?

    19% Western and Central Europe

    2% East Central Africa
    2% Eastern Middle East

    My new results are:
    97% European
    55% British Isles
    28% Western and Central Europe
    8% East Europe
    6% Scandinavia

    <2% West Africa
    <2% North and Central America
    <2% South Central Asia

    My European percentage (97%) is the same at FTDNA and Ancestry but the breakdowns are slightly different. 23andMe shows me at 98.3% European and 1.7% Sub-Saharan African (West African). FTDNA is the first of the Big Three to show me with any Native American DNA, although DNA.Land does, and at the same percentage. DNA.Land has me at 96% West Eurasian. As a Colonial Stock American, the percentages on any of the results seems reasonable, except for that South Central Asia part...unless that possibly indicates a Romani ancestor somewhere in Europe.
    That's another interesting case. This shows how randomly the admixture are assigned in MyOrigins. If it had the slighest reliability, how could the old version not spot 2% Native American ancestry reported in the new version? Fine-scale ancestry between close European populations isn't always easy, but Native American admixture is so distinct from European one that it should stick out like a sore thumb.

    Another sign of unreliability is that your 2% East Central African became 2% of West African. That may not seem like a big deal for Westerners, but it is in terms of genetic accuracy, considering that there is more genetic diversity in Africa than in the rest of the world, and East Central African are as remote to West Africans as an Irishman would be to a Chinese.

    Your 2% of South Central Asia probably correspond to the 2% of East Middle Eastern and would presumably correspond to ancestry around modern Iran. Unless you have Balkanic or Italian ancestry, it's probably not representative of any actual ancestry in the last 2000 years.

    Interesting point.
    I had once 18% Asia Minor, now guess what I have ... zero! I find it most amusing to read in the FTDNA forum how many people, despite the heavy and justified criticism, still find their results useful or reliable.

    It gave me 12% Sephardic but I don't have any Jewish ancestry as far as I know.

    53% East Middle East
    31% West Middle East
    12% Sephardic
    other trace stuff

    My maternal haplogroup has many Sephardic matches, maybe that's why.

    This is why I'm not wasting money on these tests. Accuracy is out the window.

    Here is mine

    European 95%

    Iberia 54%
    Southeast Europe 25%
    British Isles 16%

    Middle Eastern 4%
    North Africa 4%


    Trace Results

    I think for mine the north african is a bit high from the other tests but this kind of look accurate for me

    See attached pic. Scandinavian is too high but this is the second service to report it that high. MyHeritage first reported it 32% then 36% while showing the rest of my parents and family as 0%.

    Ancestry and LivingDNA agree with FTDNA that I have zero "West Euro" French/Germanic component. This is very odd as I should get about 10% based on my parents and average British results.FTDNAorigins.jpg

    This is from the autosomal transfer from Ancestry.com and after I filled in some of the positions with data from my LivingDNA file that the Ancestry file was missing.

    Statistical noise from the Middle east is called Jewish, Middle East, Kurdish, etc by the companies so there is something there but they disagree on what it is.

    Ancestry.com and MyHeritage report 100% european, LivingDNA shows 97% European and 3% World Unassigned (assigned to Kurdish in complete mode).

    I should get around 10% Scandinavian by my estimate.

    Quoting Brianco (this is from his post in this thread):

    "From what I have been reading on blogs, I will be ignoring this update. I say this because many people who have Scandinavian parents and grandparents have now got ZERO % Scandinavian and really exaggerated British Isles"

    I think maybe the test is having trouble telling Scandinavians apart from the British? So I think once this little kink is fixed, your British should go up.

    Yep, but that's what makes the Basques very interesting comparing to someone like me

    In other companies the results are similar:

    DNAland: 100% Iberian

    GenePlaza: 99.6% Southwestern European
    0.4% Ambiguous

    23andMe: 97.7% Iberian
    1.3% Northwestern European
    0.6% Southern European
    0.1% Southeast Asian

    MyHeritage 97.2% Iberian
    1.9% Baltic
    0.9% Finnish

    By the way, I tested with 23andMe and it's my favourite result; at least it gives me a pinch of salt!

    That's very interesting. They are probably all using Pais Vasco as the reference for "Iberian".

    I guess you could be modeled as having 7% Asia Minor but that doesn't mean that you have more ancestors from there than both of your parents combined.

    I have 12% Sephardic but none of my ancestors were Jewish, because that's how the tool models you. My 12% Sephardic reminded me of another calculator on gedmatch (puntDNAL K13) that gave me this:

    1 71.9% Saudi + 28.1% Jordanian @ 3.03
    2 82.8% Saudi + 17.2% Sephardic_Jew @ 3.04
    3 84.6% Saudi + 15.4% Italian_Sicilian @ 3.07
    4 84.7% Saudi + 15.3% Ashkenazy_Jew @ 3.13
    5 82.8% Saudi + 17.2% Turkish @ 3.14
    6 76.9% Saudi + 23.1% Syrian @ 3.15
    7 68.4% Saudi + 31.6% Palestinian @ 3.16
    8 81.6% Saudi + 18.4% Cypriot @ 3.21
    9 82.5% Saudi + 17.5% Turkish_Kayseri @ 3.21
    10 87% Saudi + 13% Romani @ 3.28
    11 86.4% Saudi + 13.6% Italian_Abruzzo @ 3.31
    12 77.5% Saudi + 22.5% Lebanese_Christian @ 3.33
    13 78% Saudi + 22% Lebanese_Druze @ 3.34
    14 86.3% Saudi + 13.7% Greek_Central @ 3.42
    15 84% Saudi + 16% Turkish_Aydin @ 3.45
    16 77.6% Saudi + 22.4% Lebanese_Muslim @ 3.48
    17 87.8% Saudi + 12.2% Greek_Thessaly @ 3.57
