    My LivingDNA results

    Hi everybody.


    I'm a Central Italian from Lazio.
    These are my results.


    Europe 77.6%
    Europe (South) 61.3%
    Great Britain and Ireland 15.1%
    Europe (East) 1.2%
    Near East 20.7%
    Levant 11%
    North Turkey 9.8%
    Asia (South) 1.6%
    Balochistan 1.6%


    On 23andme (It's supposed to go 500 years far back in time while LivingDNA 10 generations) I have no MENA, no Sardinia, no Asia but I have 3% north western Europe and 0.2% east Europe.
    Imo, in my case the results aren't very accurate.
    Perhaps a lack of reference populations from Italy?

    The ethnicity is really beta right now. No way you have that high of Levant or British dna. Hopefully it will get better.

    You are correct, it is a lack of reference populations in Italy.

    Can you share your regional populations? How much of Tuscany do you score?

    They need to collect more data from big countries like Italy, France and Spain as they are doing in Germany.
    I hope that it soon will be.

    Yes, so it seems.

    Carried out my autosomal loading the raw data from 23andMe on Living DNA a few months ago.
    Honestly the results seem a bit strange: it provides me with a combination of about 90% European + 10% of Near East (8.4% from Northern Turkey and 1.8% "Kurdish").
    I always wonder if it is an ancient contribution from the Bronze Age/first Iron Age or from a more recent legacy, mediated through the Byzantines. If so, I would call into question certain byzantine settlers of the Justinian regiments. They are documented in the area: “Armeni”, “Persoarmeni,” “Persoiustiniani”…
    But I still have the doubt that this same quota is actually an artificial component to fix an autosomal of northern/central Italy that would otherwise be too unbalanced towards France and Spain. Even my Scandinavian share is very suspicious, for the same reasons: I think it serves to fix an average that would otherwise be too southern.
    I think that Living has yet to collect many italian samples to return a more accurate picture.
