    Yes, I don't know (I'm no expert, just a newbie). I don't understand why some have it, and some don't. I have relatively close matches from Campania who don't show Sefardic ancestry on MH but who show Middle Eastern instead, or just North African but not Sephardic. And all from the same family. I guess it just shows that MH is not reliable at all?

    The genetic makeup of an ethnicity is made up by the ratio of various ancient populations.

    The company decides which numerical ratio is to be assigned to every ethnicity (Ethnic Average).

    If the value/number of a population is a bit higher of the ethnic average, they’ll add the extra % of that population in the final results by itself.

    It can also depends on how far back in time a Company does the test.

    Bear in mind that over half the World's population, at one time or another, they were all in Asia Minor, most left, some didn’t or they didn’t go far. (Minestrone :)

    probably there is also overlap with the middel eastern and north african to some extent
    there is a woman from gozo malta who scored 14.5% sefhardic in my heritage so i think a mixture of north african+ middel eastern
    and my heritage randomly chose Sephardi for her.....


    p.s
    any way after israel it is cyprus and than italy who score the highest % of this ethnicity in there map of countries according to my heritage ......

    My ancestors on the paternal side are 100% Italian, and on the maternal side they are mixed, with Iberian ancestors, Native Americans and sub-Saharan Africa (and also an Italian ancestor). I am surprised by Irish, Scottish and Welsh ancestors ... I suppose they refer to distant Celtic ancestors and not to people of these modern nationalities. And it seems to me a mistake to include the Central American population, since being a population with origin in three races, it confuses more than clarifies the origins of a person.

    These ethnicity estimates should never be taken seriously. Any company, not only MH.

    I haven't taken My Heritage, so I can't address it directly, but I concur with Pax. We shouldn't be taking any of these too seriously.

    I always use the adoptee test. If I were adopted and knew nothing about my ancestry, would it give me the correct information? 23andme has me as mainly Italian but with a hodgepodge of other ancestry, mostly Northwest European. Ancestry says I'm 45% French, which is ridiculous. Their own graphics make it clear. It's just that parts of northern Italy and parts of France and French Switzerland are similar.

    So, they both fail.

    if i was adoptee than i will find out i am quarter askenazi
    and my heritage didn't fail here just like ftdna didnt who gave me the same %
    as you said in other thread it is easy to see askenazi dna because of the bottleneck

    You're right as far as the companies are concerned: both My Heritage and 23andme can tell you if you have Ashkenazi ancestry in genealogical time.

    Ashkenazi ancestry is special in that way.

    Eurogenes "J Test", on the other hand, is useless.

    In short, depending on the situation, 23andMe + trio-phasing involving adopted, spouse and child could occasionally provide really good clues on the ancestry of the adopted person.
    It's amazing how 23andMe refined my results with phasing, in these last versions. It got way less "confused", and assign me almost 90% of Italian ancestry, even my ancestry not being related to a more central position in the country.

    myheritage is far superior in finding matches than any other company I tried.............as long as you stick by 2 rules that work for me
    1 - a Medium Confidence indicator......minimum require, avoid the ones that state Low confidence
    2 - have more than 1 segment matching, regardless of size

    I have , apart from 4 family members........another 6 clear matches on paternal and maternal sides , which later I have found in BDM records
    Fathers mtdna T2b17
    Grandfather mtdna T1a1e
    Sons mtdna K1a4o
    Mum paternal line R1b-S8172
    Grandmum paternal side I1d1-P109
    Wife paternal line R1a-Z282

    I uploaded my uncle's Raw Data to MyHeritage, but now the company is charging for revealing results. So another time... :)
