    Share your MyHeritage DNA Ethnicity Estimates

    In 2017 I started a thread encouraging users to share their 23andMe Ancestry Composition to get a better idea of what each admixture corresponds to. This resulted in the making of distribution maps for each European admixture. I would now like to do the same for MyHeritage DNA customers.

    Please only share your results if all your ancestors come from the same country! Kindly also mention your ancestral region(s) within that country so that results can be classify more accurately.

    I got an estimate of ethnicity from MyHeritage obtained by uploading the raw data of 23andme on their calculator: is it useful?


    In any case these are my results (family roots from Italy= Eastern Emilia/Romagna):

    - Southern Europe 87,2% (Italian 75,2% + Iberian 12%)

    - Northern and Western Europe 10,8%

    - Ashkenazi Jewish 2%

    (It's the only calculator that gives me back some jewish lineage, although my family hasn't those origins)

    You would think that My Heritage, based as it is in Israel, would be more accurate when it came to assigning Jewish genes to Italians.

    Italians and Jews share certain genes.

    You would think Italians are all partly Ashkenazi or Sephardi if you trusted My Heritage's algorithm.

    I hope this is not supposed to be an estimation of recent ancestry, because if it is, then it is quite ridiculous, I don't have Yemeni Jewish ancestors, nor Ashkenazi, nor North African.

    And aren't Yemeni Jews Middle Eastern? why do they have a separate category?

    Well, not all the Italians score Ashkenazi or Sephardi on My Heritage. And maybe it's the opposite, being based in Israel, My Heritage could tend to overstimate Jewish ancestry. For example LivingDNA is based in Great Britain and tend to overstimate British ancestry in non-British people.

    I definitely agree with you that My Heritage does overestimate Jewish ancestry.

    This calculator doesn't seem ideal for south Italians, that's a very poor model. If it were any better you would've scored italian and lots of it.

    Given the results of Azzurro, I wonder if MyHeritage uses reference samples from South Italy too or just from North and perhaps Central Italy. My parents are North Italian in ancestry, and we get a substantial Italian % in this calculator (between 40 and 60%).

    Mine – FTDNA data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *South Europe: 55.0%
    - Italian: 49.9%
    - Greek: 5.1%
    *North and West Europe: 30.9%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 30.9%
    *East Europe: 14.1%
    - Balkan: 14.1%

    Mine – 23andMe data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *South Europe: 57.4%
    - Italian: 56.3%
    - Iberian: 1.1%
    *North and West Europe: 27.3%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 27.3%
    *East Europe: 15.3%
    - Balkan: 15.3%

    Father – 23andMe data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *South Europe: 59.3%
    - Italian: 57.2%
    - Iberian: 2.1%
    *East Europe: 22.2%
    - Balkan: 22.2%
    *North and West Europe: 18.5%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 18.5%

    Mother – 23andMe data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *East Europe: 45.3%
    - Balkan: 45.3%
    *South Europe: 42.5%
    - Italian: 41.1%
    - Iberian: 1.4%
    *North and West Europe: 12.2%
    - North and West European: 10.4%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 1.8%

    These results resemble a bit our DNA Land's.

    I know right?? In fact, aren't Yemeni Jews Bedouin like? It's insane to put them apart from other middle easterners.

    This calculator has ways to go

    I agree it makes no sense that I get ZERO, I am curious what is the reference population they use for Italy.

    I am curious to know as well, I doubt MyHeritage uses Southern Italians in their reference population for Italy, I have several matches that score zero Italian like me or lower than 10%.

    Does it make a difference buying the MyHeritage Kit vs uploading 3rd parties RawData ?
    Has anybody tried and compared both Results ?

    Yeah you scored nothing in that category, strangely. You're more Sardinian than italian by this test.

    Regarding what Pax Augusta said, it seems more suitable for Jewish people, everybody seems to score relatively high Sephardim or Ashkenazi in this test

    Yeah you scored nothing in that category, strangely. You're more Sardinian than italian by this test
    I’m heeeariiiing, that for MyHeritage most Apulians are the “Children of Leonidas of Sparta”. lol (Greekish)
    Something it ain’t right with their Results. (ain’t lol). :)

    Mine – FTDNA data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *South Europe: 55.0%
    - Italian: 49.9%
    - Greek: 5.1%
    *North and West Europe: 30.9%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 30.9%
    *East Europe: 14.1%
    - Balkan: 14.1%

    Mine – 23andMe data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *South Europe: 57.4%
    - Italian: 56.3%
    - Iberian: 1.1%
    *North and West Europe: 27.3%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 27.3%
    *East Europe: 15.3%
    - Balkan: 15.3%

    Father – 23andMe data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *South Europe: 59.3%
    - Italian: 57.2%
    - Iberian: 2.1%
    *East Europe: 22.2%
    - Balkan: 22.2%
    *North and West Europe: 18.5%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 18.5%

    Mother – 23andMe data

    Europe: 100.0%
    *East Europe: 45.3%
    - Balkan: 45.3%
    *South Europe: 42.5%
    - Italian: 41.1%
    - Iberian: 1.4%
    *North and West Europe: 12.2%
    - North and West European: 10.4%
    - Irish, Scottish, and Welsh: 1.8%

    These results resemble a bit our DNA Land's.
    I agree with this as I get 70% italian and father 56% ( 21% in 23andme )

    maybe they use south italian as Greek with albania like natgeno does

    Could it be also the other way around that myheritage confuses Jewish dna with Italian dna? because i get 23 percent Italian and 1 percent Sardinian dna, although we do not know of Italian ancestry in our family, only German, Jewish and Russian. This is more reflected in certain calculators on gedmatch but not on myheritage. Also on gedmatch i dont have so much Eastern European dna. Im new to dna and dont understand why there are so many different results.

    anyway here are my results from myheritage:

    Eastern Europe: 42,2 %
    North and Westeurope: 33,5 %
    Italian: 23,1 %
    Sardinian 1,2 %

    I heard that Ashkenazi Jewish and Italian or even Greek dna is very close.
    Wouldnt it then make more sense to call this dna simply "Mediterranean" instead of Italian or Jewish?
