    I find My Heritage dna estimate abit hit and miss.

    • Europe
      98.9%



      North and West Europe
      95.3%

      [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4)]Irish, Scottish, and Welsh
      95.3%

      [/COLOR]


      South Europe
      3.6%

      [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4)]Iberian
      3.6%

      [/COLOR]



    • Asia
      1.1%



      South Asia
      1.1%

      [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4)]South Asian
      1.1%

      [/COLOR]



    No other site makes reference to any Asian or Spanish heritage at all. I've heard that My Heritage throw 1% in to discourage racism, It'd be a shame and dishonest if it were true.

    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.

    I thought it was interesting, because it shows the centrum includes southern Italy, in the name. Which means the Greek component is probably Peloponnesian-to-cretan-like. I think the Greeks that went to southern Italy probably remained like that. But perhaps even the Iapygians were somewhat similar genetically, idk without ancient DNA. The "Italian" component is Tuscan-like, maybe TSI. To me, this shows two components that are indigenous to Puglia since ancient times. Both of which are components that are appropriate for a modern Italian from the region of Bari.

    Ops. Sorry. I was focused in the numbers, and didn't notice that the labels changed.

    MyHeritage should Invest much more resources on Autosomal Results.

    If Ancestry and 23andme can distinguish a Pugliese from a Calabrese or an Abruzzese, how is it that MyHeritage can’t even pinpoint a South Italian.

    @Duarte
    I guess the complaint should also apply to “Iberia”, no distinctions between Spaniards and Portuguese.

    It is true. I totally agree with you. This is very frustrating on MyHeritage and FTDNA. LM Genetics made this distinction for me. I know that LM is based on Eurogenes and nMonte 3, which a lot of people criticize. But for me it was the only one that made distinctions between regions of Portugal and between Portugal and Spain. A big hug dear friend.

    This is very cool. But, unfortunately, in Brazil we do not have access to Ancestry/23andMe’s testing Kits.

    Hopefully they’ll enter the Brazilian Market soon.

    With regrets, I deleted my 23 accounts, I didn't agree with a few aspects of their business model.
    Maybe I’ll test again with the next new V#-chip, if ...

    I'm not seeing anything in the way of updates. Maybe the updates were more south European centered and they'll have some updates for Northern Europe sometime soon.





    No update for me in Ancestry so far. It's been the same since last fall when I received my results. I think?

    I hope that yes dear friend Salento. It would be great 23andMe and Ancestry in Brazil. But, with the new government and its follies, I have doubts if any foreign company would be interested to make business in Brazil.

    Thanks for posting those descriptions. I'd give you an up-vote, but it doesn't seem possible on this thread.

    It is funny how some people either try to say that Southern Italians, are less Italian or they deny the concept of ethnicity. When in fact I have two genetic components that have been in Italy, thousands of years.



    FYI

    I still think myheritage is a garbage quality test.
