    my brother (same father, same mother) made a test on ftdna and we transfered it to myheritage to see the difference. its so different.

    my brother gets:

    North and Westeurope 45 %
    England 5 %
    Finnland 3,9 %
    Balkan 22,6 %
    Eastern Europe 21,3 %
    Iberian 2,2 %

    how can this be explained? it seems to me that the calculators cant really identify our mediterranean dna with certainty.

    myheritage gives me:

    English 54.6%
    Scandinavian 27.8%
    Irish, Scots and Welsh 12.8%
    Finnish 3%
    Southern Europe, Italian 1.8%

    I don't understand why they have given me 27.8% Scandinavian. I only get <1% on ancestry and <2% on ftdna.

    my results

    Europe 63%: Italian 22.9%,
    Iberian 16.2%
    Irish, Scottish, Welsh 12.4%
    Northwest Europe: 11.5%

    America 24.9%: Central America 22.9%

    Middle East 6.7%

    Western Asia 4.4%

    East Africa 1%

    Europe 73%: South East Europe 32%
    British Isles 19%
    Iberia 13%

    New World 19% North and Central America 14%
    South America 5%

    Middle East 3% Eastern Middle East 3%

    Traces Ashkenazi Jew <2%
    North Africa <2%
    West Africa <2%
    South Central Africa <1%

    One of the things that surprised me most is the difference in my American components. I believe that the Central American population considered in My Heritage is mestizo, so it does not only contain Native American components, but also European and African ones, which could alter certain percentages. I believe that to be more useful, the American populations considered should only be native .

    All right, I uploaded my 23andMe data to MyHeritage. And this is what I got. North and West Europe 67.8% (Irish Scottish and Welsh 27.7%, Scandinavian 25.5%, English 14.6%). South Europe 19.7% (Iberian 10.5%, Greek 9.2%). Balkan 12.5%. DOES THIS GUY LOOK 25% SCANDINAVIAN?!?!?!Attachment 10419

    Does anybody know if there is a QUALITY Difference between the free download and a Paid Test?
    Is the free download Flawed?

    These are my results. I uploaded my 23andme raw data nearly a year ago, but now I guess they were able to convert the V5 version to be compatible with their calculator.

    Clearly their centrum for "Italian" is more northern, and the rest I get is probably pulled towards "Greek" from that centrum. Personally, I think the current version of AncestryDNA may be best for southern Italians. Considering they have sub-populations dedicated to specific southern Italian regions.

    MyHeritage assigns results similar to yours to almost all Apulians.
    I presumed that the results I saw came from the old free-upload.
    I would like to know if paying for the test increases the quality of the results.

    I don't know, my cousin did it, and his results were really off to say the least. I'd save my money on this one.

    Yeah, we should wait until they do a decent update.

    Sometimes, outdated(?) calculators, give me this kind of results.
    This might be similar to what MyHeritage uses. :)

    mine is always been 70% italian, the others are only balkans and ireland roughly at 15% each ......no issue really
    .
    but of my first 9 DNA matches ......I have confirmed 8 , even a Benetton in Belgium and another in Trentino ......others are in veneto and Friuli
    .
    As long as I only check the "medium confidence" , and not the "low confidence" , this site makes me happy

    As Pugliesi Jovialis and I, both get 79% Italian, and Puglia as the Region on AncestryDNA, and others too.
    Regionally speaking, I was saying that imo, MyHeritage has gaps in the Genetic Map of the IT Peninsula.

    I didn't Test with MyHeritage, because I've seen other results of people of my region, and I immediately understood that this company it’s not completely up to speed (yet).

    This is what happens to my results when a oracle doesn't have South Italy.
    It’s interesting to see how and with whom it gets confused.

    The North African result is interesting. I often don't think the MyHeritage results make complete sense, but in this case, there is the Moorish incursion into Provence and the neighboring mountains to consider.

    See:
    https://www.history.ubc.ca/sites/def...Fraxinetum.pdf

    However, from what I've seen these kinds of short lived incursions rarely have much lasting influence, so maybe, on balance, it's just an artifact of their algorithm.

    It's probably just that (an artifact of their algorithm), as my mother doesn't get any North Africa with Gedmatch calculators or on FTDNA. Interestingly though, she has a Mtdna exact match (genetic distance: 0) who's Libyan.

    I think my British Isles has been vastly overstated

    new feature added: "Auto Cluster Analysis"

    I uploaded my 23andme test results to MyHeritage roughly 6 months ago. I remember the 23andme test has been done on a version 5 test chip. So I downloaded the 23andme rawdata and then converted in two different versions.I decided to upload both versions to the newly MyHeritage profile, and I ended up with two different kits.

    I compared the results, the suggested list of genetic relatives, and finally, the reason I decided today to post about my results, since yesterday a new feature MyHeritage added, the "auto cluster analysis".
    It took about 16 hours to have the results calculated and sent into my e mail as a zip. I think it is a new interesting feature My Heritage just added and I was surprised to have it available as my account is a free one.Untitled3.jpg
