    Share your updated MyOrigins results

    FTDNA have updated their "MyOrigins" results since early April and they now look different. What is your score? Where does each one of you come from?
    Here are my results:

    European 79%
    Southeast Europe 57%
    East Europe 17%
    Iberian 7%
    Middle Eastern 19%
    Asia Minor 19%
    Trace results
    West and Central Europe <2%

    I am Greek (50% from Thessaly and 50% from Thrace likely with some Bulgarian ancestry).

    Really strange update. Before I had -- 33% East Euro; 33% South Euro; 17% Western and Central Euro; 12% Southwest Asia; 5% Anatolia

    Now it's like -- 84% Southeast Euro; 9% East Euro; 7% Scandinavia and I even got another 2% of South America (so I'm 102%...) but the system says it's a noise, normally.

    This southeast Euro cluster in the Balkans is said to represent cumulative effect from local Neolithic ancestry + Slavic migrants and yet there are other East Euro percentages for some reason. It seems that these exotic 17% Western Euro are now Scandinavia+East Euro and the rest fell into the Southeast cluster.

    According to FTDNA:


    Southeast Euro = Italy, Greece and the western Balkan states from Bulgaria to Croatia.


    East Europe = Latvia to Ukraine, Romania and the northern part of Bulgaria, west along the eastern edge of the Balkan states to Poland and the eastern half of Germany.

    Did you feel your earlier results were better representative? I'm curious about that with my own results, 17% is sizeable for Sepharic ancestry to just be noise, but as someone with no known Jewish ancestry it's likelier that it's the result of certain clusters regions being redrawn.

    I myself have been assigned 17% Sephardic. My ancestry on my mother's side is predominantly from Southern Italy with no known Jewish ancestry. Before I had 27% Southern European and 14% Anatolia, now my Southeast European is 13% and Asia Minor is 0%. I think if I was truly Sephardic Jewish I would have some Iberia and North Africa which I have none and my West Middle East is <2%. The new Ancestry Genetic Communities is more accurate in my opinion, which has assigned me with Southern Italian and my mother Campania and Molise which is exactly where 75% of her family is from. I think FTDNA has some work to do with disentangling population clusters.

    hm, it almost looks like they took that sephardic percentage from your southern european result. i'm curious to know what they look for in order to distinguish between ashkenazi and sephardic ancestry, because same, i dont have any north african or iberian trace regions, however i do know that sephardic jews moved east to resettle after they were ousted from spain, so it's likelier southern europeans would have sephardic rather than ashkenazi ancestry. but still! food for thought i guess! I saw many albanians score 100% for south eastern european on myorigins 2.0, so i guess albanians and greeks tend to be the south euro benchmark for this revision, and any other results might be skewed as a result?

    Where my family is from is the mountains of Avellino and Campobasso. I'm not aware of any Jewish people living in those areas like they did in Calabria and Sicily, but I could be wrong about that and or my family history though 17% seems high with no known Jewish ancestry. A lot of Sephardics that ended up converting to Catholicism after the inquisition that weren't totally aware of their Jewish past had wondered about their family's odd traditions of not drinking milk with meat or other traditions that kept with Jewish Law until they did some digging and realized their family were once Sephardic Jews. I'm taking this 17% Sephardic with a grain of salt until they improve it and start testing more Italians from every region.

    This new update by ftdna is a huge improvement and makes them the most accurate in my opinion now. I'm 50% French Canadian, and 50% Wallonia Belgian. They now have me at 90% West/Central European and 10% South/Eastern European. Prior they had me at 40% British Aisles

    It looks like the new MyOrigins is very different from the old one, but is in no way an improvement. Now people get relatively high percentages from regions where they shouldn't get anything but trace amounts. 2% Finnish in Sicily, 7% Iberian in Greece, 2% South America in Bulgaria... WTF? They might just as well get a programme to generate random numbers!

    I don't know who is in charge of developing these admixtures at FTDNA, but they really aren't doing a good job.

    That's odd, I am also Belgian but get 12% of East European with the new version. 23andMe gives me 0% and indeed Belgians should have 0% since there is no R1a apart from a bit of Germanic L664. I had about 50% British before, and now its 24% but I have no British ancestor (possibly ever since migrations went from the continent to Britain, not the other way round, and I don't come from a coastal area where there could have been some migration at one point).

    I rated FTDNA last for autosomal report usefulness and accuracy in my recent review of ancestral DNA tests and I maintain that ranking for the new MyOrigins. You'd think that the oldest and largest ancestry DNA test would get one of the best reports, but oddly the opposite is true. I think they aren't even trying as they think they dominate the market anyway.

    Yes, it seems they didn't managed to get their things right. Some guy Razib Khan should be responsible for all this. It's strange that these "Trace regions" are giving absurd noise results and they are added above the 100th percent, so one can be 102 or 105% something, lol... it's like they knew it's not right but added them anyway. Also I don't know how it's possible for me to have a Scandinavian cluster, I know the Goths lived here for a few centuries but still...

    Sad to hear that other people's results still seem really off. I was hoping finally we could rely on some accuracy. Most companies except Ancestrydna have me at about 87% northwest European. Problem was is that I was getting anywhere from 25-40% british isles with no known ancestors on paper. Previously I was also getting Eastern European and Asia Minor. I attribute my current 10% southeast European to Roman influence.
    Prior:
    Western/Central European: 46%
    British Aisles: 40%
    Eastern Europe: 5%
    Asia Minor: 4%
    Southern European: 3%
    Scandinavian:2%

    New:
    Western/Central European 90%
    South/Eastern European 10%

    Hi, I'm new posting here but I was really surprised with my new results and I came looking for help. I see I'm not the only one thinking that the old results were much more realistic.

    With the old results I was 100% European: 82% Southern Europe and 18% Western and Central Europe. I thought that reflected pretty well my 100% Iberian ancestry (as far as I know).

    Now I got: 74% Iberia, 13% Southern Europe, 11% Scandinavia (!!!) and >2% Western Middle East, although they warn me that this could be background noise. Also no trace of Western-Central Europe, when I had 18% with the old results.

    Could someone help me understand if there is a reasonable explanation for my new results?

    Thanks
