    I think so.

    The other day, I recalled this thread, and the question of why some Europeans get this odd tiny South Asia component. Perhaps this can provide some explanation to it; there's probably Greek or other European ancestry (i.e. Scythian-like) being picked up in this region.

    South Asia-related ancestry


    This is a confidence group for Balochistan ancestry. It includes Balochistan, Sindh and Pashtun populations. As an intermediate sized population grouping for Balochistan, it is likely that your ancestry includes all three populations, or your ancestry from these regions is small and the exact origin is uncertain.

    Pakistan lies at a crossroads. The midway point between the Iranian Plateau, the Central Asian steppes, and the Indian subcontinent, the country has forever been home to a plethora of different ethnic groups. Situated across its southwestern mountains and plains, Balochistan is a perfect example of how this cradle of genetic diversity can lead to a unique cultural and regional outlook.

    Home to (amongst other groups) the Balochi, Makrani, and Brahui people, the genetic signature of this region owes much of its origins to the sometimes ancient ties this area had with the lands surrounding the western Indian Ocean. Closely related to neighbouring Pakistani groups, Balochistan's location towards the historical Persian and Islamic centres of power has influenced its history. Genetic markers relating to Iranian, Indian, West Asian and African people can all be found here, reflecting the generations of migration, trade, and invasions that the region has witnessed. Political boundaries here often don’t reflect the reality of the historical territories of various states and tribes that exist here, and so it is common to also find the Balochistan signature in parts of Western Iran, Sindh, and Southern Afghanistan. Ruled over at various points in time by Greek, Persian, and Indian states, the people of Balochistan are a product of thousands of years of multiculturalism and globalisation.

    Unknown to many people, the southwestern Pakistani province of Sindh was once the heart of one of the world’s first great civilisations. Today, all that remains of the Indus Valley Civilisation are windswept and long abandoned cities, only visible through decades of archaeological work. With no enduring monuments left behind like the towering pyramids of Egypt to speak of, the original inhabitants of Sindh still hold many secrets. 3700 years have passed since their great civilisation disappeared, and since then many people from across Asia have shaped the genetic and cultural makeup of this ancient region.

    The gateway between Iran and India, the genetic signature of Sindh today is most similar to the nearby Pashtun and Punjabi people. Here, an expansive history of migration and invasion can be read through the DNA of the region’s inhabitants. The original people of the Indus Valley Civilisation probably reached this area via a southern coastal route out of Africa, and after their collapse, a group dubbed the ‘Ancestral North Indians’ appear to have moved in from further west, intermingling with pre-existing populations. More recently, Greek, Indian, Persian, Mongol and British armies have all claimed this region for themselves. Today, the Sindhi live in Pakistan alongside many other related ethnic groups that call the country their home, including Pashtuns, Balochis, and Kalash.

    First settled as far back as 50,000 years ago, the rugged mountainous regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan today are inhabited by many different ethnic groups. Of these, few are as widespread as the Pashtun, who form a sizeable majority across the south of Afghanistan and a notable minority in Central Pakistan. Until recently, anthropologists had to rely on ancient oral traditions and tantalising archaeological evidence to piece together the ancestry of the many groups in the region, an endeavour that has been revolutionised in recent times with the great advances made in genetic analysis.

    Genetically similar to neighbouring Indian populations to the southeast, the Pashtun homeland lies at a juncture between the Central Asian steppes, the Indian subcontinent, and the Iranian plateau. As such, the Pashtun genetic signature contains markers commonly associated with many surrounding peoples. This is not surprising - Afghanistan and Pakistan have seen countless migrations and invasions over the years, and Indian, Persian, Greek, Arab, Central Asian, and Mongol incursions have left varying levels of both cultural and genetic legacies from across Eurasia. The Pashtun of Pakistan and Afghanistan today are more closely related to each other than to other ethnic groups in their own countries, a throwback to the often shifting borders that accompanied these historical population movements.
    This is the component on "Cautious" mode, which give a better description of it. We know that the Greeks were in this part of the world. I recall from this study, that it is theorized that the Kalash, who are in this cohort; indeed have Greek-like DNA.

    It is tempting to hypothesize that the Roopkund_B individuals descend from Indo-Greek populations established after the time of Alexander the Great, who may have contributed ancestry to some present-day groups like the Kalash21.

    I think you do not have to worry that you have 1.2% of S Asia. Gypsies are probably only a more recent migration from South Asia, but populations have always crossed migrations from both sides. South Asia has about a third of the global population and its impact is felt globally, and not only throughout Europe. lool. 1.2%? What good joke.
    By the way, can you say the components of 85.5% of Europe?!

    As it is for Gedmatch calculators, consumer genomics tests have their own exclusive standards for classifying components. I wouldn't pay much attention to it. There's too much overlap, as I pointed out in my previous post. Instead, it is better to use the raw data for calculators that utilize ancient samples. Then draw conclusions based on findings in archaeogenetics papers.

    (thanks, for sharing ... :)

    ... then, by the same argument, we should apply the same conclusion to the Romans and Britannia.

    The difference is:

    they say they didn't detect Roman DNA in the Brits.

    ... maybe, some of those DNA segments in our UK results, have been allocated to the British Genetic makeup from the beginning of DNA testing.

    That’s why they couldn’t find it.

    ... the End result is that they assign Britain to Italians, when they should assign Italian to the British. I Think.

    ... “what's good for the goose is good for the gander” :)

    Edit:

    from GedMatch too:

    Yeah, I doubt I have ancestry from Northumbria. Unless Uhtred goes to Puglia is session 4 of the Last Kingdom.

    Hello Guys.

    I haven't a test of "Living DNA", but, IMO, I think that it's more accurate to people that have British ancestry.


    Said that, that’s the way that I interpret all my my autosomal results scored to Central or North Europe:


    FTDNA:


    Hallstatt’s Celts, with traces of germanic peoples: 16% + 4% = 20%


    MyHeritage:


    Hallstatt’s Celts, with traces of germanic peoples: 14.1% + 11.3% = 25.4%


    LM Genetics:


    Hallstatt’s Celts, with traces of germanic peoples: 29%


    Of course, I'm not a specialist, and I am seeing the things by the point of view of an Iberian. LOL.


    Great Night dear friends :)

    LivDNA Skipped North Italy and went North all the way to Scotland in Pictlandia, (Land of the Painted People of the North :)

    Common sense dictates that the relation it’s closer with the Northern Italians than the Brits.

    Are they ever releasing this big regionalization update?

    Also, have they made a statement regarding their false lies/promises with regards to free ancestry results for kit uploads?

    Uploaded since the beginning and got nothing for my mother and father.
