The Berber ethnicity is not sub-Saharan. The bebers are indigenous peoples of the Maghreb coast, more specifically of the Mediterranean regions of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia and of the Atlas Mountains, in Morocco. They hate being called Berbers. They call themselves Imazighen, that is, "free men"; Amazigh in singular, and do not consider themselves Arabs.
    Just for your reflection about the theme "The berbers and yours ancient ethnical relationships with peoples of South Europe and West Asia".

    "Around 5000 BC, the populations of North Africa were primarily descended from the makers of the Iberomaurusian and Capsian cultures, with a more recent intrusion associated with the Neolithic Revolution. The proto-Berber tribes evolved from these prehistoric communities during the Late Bronze to Early Iron Age.

    Uniparental DNA analysis has established ties between Berbers and other Afro-asiatic speakers in Africa. Most of these populations belong to the E1b1b paternal haplogroup, with Berber speakers having among the highest frequencies of this lineage. Additionally, genomic analysis has found that Berber and other Maghreb communities are defined by a shared ancestral component.

    In 2013, Iberomaurusian skeletons from the prehistoric sites of Taforalt and Afalou in the Maghreb were also analyzed for ancient DNA. All of the specimens belonged to maternal clades associated with either North Africa or the northern and southern Mediterranean littoral, indicating gene flow between these areas since the Epipaleolithic. The ancient Taforalt individuals carried the mtDNA haplogroups U6, H, JT and V, which points to population continuity in the region dating from the Iberomaurusian period.

    Human fossils excavated at the Ifri n'Amr or Moussa site in Morocco have been radiocarbon-dated to the Early Neolithic period, ca. 5,000 BC. Ancient DNA analysis of these specimens indicates that they carried paternal haplotypes related to the E1b1b1b1a (E-M81) subclade and the maternal haplogroups U6a and M1, all of which are frequent among present-day communities in the Maghreb. These ancient individuals also bore an autochthonous Maghrebi genomic component that peaks among modern Berbers, indicating that they were ancestral to populations in the area. Additionally, fossils excavated at the Kelif el Boroud site near Rabat were found to carry the broadly-distributed paternal haplogroup T-M184 as well as the maternal haplogroups K1, T2 and X2, the latter of which were common mtDNA lineages in Neolithic Europe and Anatolia. These ancient individuals likewise bore the Berber-associated Maghrebi genomic component. This altogether indicates that the Late Neolithic Kelif el Boroud inhabitants were ancestral to contemporary populations in the area, but also likely experienced gene flow from Europe."


    Warm greetings, Carlos.

    As a Brazilian of typical Portuguese, African and Native ancestry, I'm puzzled by the 14% "British Isles". 4% Eastern Europe seems odd as well.
    Also, what a crazy mixture.
    The new FTDNA myOrigins says I've 19% of British ancestry, while the new 23andMe Ancestry Composition says I've 0%. Which one is right on this one, given their goal? Certainly the Ancestry Composition!
    myOrigins must point to some shared ancestry, which imo is not that informative in this case.

    Trace results:
    - Ashkenazi: <2%.

    I only get 94% Southeast Europe which includes Italy, Greece, Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, Croatia, Serbia, etc. No more details than that. What is this Origins 2.0 that you speak of?

    this is the current version of ftdna my origins
    the previews one had different references and so results were different
