In order to make such maps we need a lot of data from all over the Europe. By the nature of this data collection it will be a self reporting project. It is not the best way, but it might be the only way to gather data for these maps. Please post your EEF, WHG, EEF numbers with place of birth, or place of birth of your parents if they came from different region than you were born in.

Little explanation of these admixtures:

These admixtures can roughly tell you about your origin.
WHG - West Hunter Gatherers, were the Mesolithic Europeans spread pretty much all over the Europe around 10 to 5 thousand BCE.
EEF - Early European Farmers, were the Neolithic inhabitants of Europe, the first farmers who came 10 thousand years ago from Near East and first settled in Balkans and the rest of South Europe. In next 5 thousand years they've spread to every corner of Europe.
ANE - Ancient North Eurasians, the hunter-gatherers and nomads from far East Europe and Central Asia. Latest research papers point to Indo-Europeans bringing ANE to every place in Europe.

Example:
Poland, Siedlce (country, city or region)
EEF - 45
WHG - 39
ANE - 16

One can say that I'm 39% very ancient European, 45% farmer from Near East, and 16% Indo-European. Or that I'm 55% Hunter-Gatherer and 45% Farmer.

I only created rough maps on data above and some guesswork. They will be updated and improved when more data comes in.

I think the best place to start would be the academic data from Lazaridis et al, yes? It's on page 10 of the supplement. Of course you'd have to choose which set is most informative.
http://biorxiv.org/content/biorxiv/suppl/2013/12/23/001552.DC1/001552-1.pdf

Ed. Sorry, cross post, or is it? I'll have to check if the Eurogenes figures are lifted from the study, and if so, which he chose...

Ed. Yes, it's the individual fit column. The Finns, Mordovians and Russians couldn't be done.
 
Interesting that at least two of the low frequency areas for ANE are non-Indo European speaking areas: Basque country, and part of Toscana.

Yes, and also interestingly the other none IE, Hungarians and Finns, are heavily ANE. Obviously other Asiatic peoples like Huns, Turks and Siberians brought more ANE with them. ANE wasn't exclusive to IE obviously.
 
I don't think the averages fit for Basque-like people. País Vasco possess 5% more ANE than "Basques", when everyone who's being following amateur projects knows that both samples are almost identical. So everything should be taken with caution while creating the averages.

Mine (Catalonia)

EEF66,70916
WHG23,20789
ANE10,08295
 
with these numbers

0.715 0.177 0.108 -- Bergamo
0.712 0.147 0.141 -- Bulgarian
0.675 0.195 0.13 -- French_South
0.713 0.125 0.163 -- Pais_Vasco ..................................hmm, does it mean Paese Vasconic in Italian...I know its basque area?

0.692 0.202 0.106 for me , would mean I fit in the above group, where and for what reason did you merge ANE and WHG

The SHG (Sandinavian Hunter-gatherers) seem to be having ANE admixture as well;
 
I think I know what happened. Spanish_North includes Basques and Northern Spaniards. Dienekes' separated the real Basque individuals from the rest, calling this group País_Vasco. Seems like Lazaridis (aka Dienekes') forgot to change the nomenclature he was using in the Dodecad Project...LOL!

There is a version of Davidski to determine the WHG_ANE_EEF numbers for Europeans, and than there is a modified version for Near Eastern People made by the User MfA.

Here are some of the results using the Near Eastern calculator.

results with Davidskis Calculator

The minus infront of WHG is no tipping mistake, they do score negative for that. mostly Assyrians get weird results with this Calculator, the lack of WHG might be the reason.

Kurds

Kurd 1 = EEF: 85,5% WHG: 4,4% ANE: 10,1%
Kurd 2 = EEF 85.4% WHG 4.1% ANE 10.5%
Kurd 3 = EEF 91.1% WHG -0.2% ANE 9.2%



Assyrians

Average Assyrian = EEF 100% WHG -7.03% ANE 6.81%



Iranians

Iranian 1 = EEF 84.8% WHG 4.8% ANE 10.4%



Turks

Turk 1 = EEF 91.4% WHG -0.2% ANE 8.7%
Turk 2 = EEF 95.7% WHG -3.7% ANE 7.9%

I don't think it is smart to make a map like how Maciamo does, but it can be useful and help learn what how each is distributed. Some Europeans also have ancestry from other populations(i.e. east Asians and Sub Saharan, Africans) and their Eurogenes K13 conversion-WHG EEF ANE scores will not be 100% accurate. The best way to get an idea how Laz's WHG, EEF, and ANE is distributed in Europe is to print out an outline map of Europe off the internet and write in the percentages with pencil or make pie charts on excel and glue them on the map.

The EEF component probably sucks in all middle eastern ancestry that does not have a Neolithic origin in Europe, so should just stand for middle eastern ancestry. Askenazi Jews score 93.1 EEF, and most of that is probably recent modern-like middle eastern ancestry. We also have to remember that Stuttgart aka EEF had some WHG ancestry. After the Laz genomes are accessible and the paper with 3,00-9,000YBP Russian genomes is published, amateurs like Dienekes and Davidski will probably make very accurate calculators for predicting ANE, WHG, middle eastern ancestry percentages in Europe.

Davidski created two Mammoth-ME-ENA-SSA admixtures, where the mammoth reference is either La Brana-1 or MA1. Based on those admixtures and Laz's EEF-WHG-ANE test I think Stuttgart had ~20% WHG ancestry. If you recalculate results WHG goes way up and EEF way down. When I saw the recalculated results of Baltic people it is shocking that there are still people with so much Mesolithic ancestry, they are ~70% hunter gatherer(over 50% WHG!!) and only ~30% middle eastern.

if he makes a map like maciano does based on the ethnic markers known, he can then place us individuals on it to basically plot us. In this way we can at least get a trend

What are you scared of?

We do not need to place the ancient at this point in time

The percentages may not be totally accurate, European's ancestry may be more complicated than three stone age populations(we already know it is for some), and in no way should EEF-WHG-ANE percentages be used to discover what region of Europe someone descends from(for example Irish, Polish, and Norse score have very similar proportions).

I am scared of using a bad technique to understand the distribution of EEF, WHG, and ANE(Maciamo's maps are not very informative). The best ways in my opinion can only be done personally but if you want to show others and discuss ideas maps like Maciamo's are good.

Are you saying my numbers for myself are fabricated and that the ethnic numbers are fabricated?

if not...........then we have 2 data points we can see in Europe

Again, why not let people decide their own areas of Europe with the numbers they have....again , what are you afraid of

I seen far more bad techniques in eurogenes, dienekes, ftdna , 23andme to warrant this to not proceed

Statistics are never 100% accurate and never tell the story of individuals, as Sile has mentioned they can tell you the trends in populations, how people moved, what was the direction, where your autosomal ancestors came from, and in connection with archaeology and historic records what tribes contributed to your existence, possibly.
Will it make you a different person? Unlikely, but it is fun to know, or a fun to take this journey. All needed is to open your mind and embrace the journey.

About Time said...Good catch wrt Pais Vasco. Paper shows (Extended Data Table 3):

Pais Vasco 0.163 ANE (Full modeling)
Spanish 0.123 ANE (Full modeling)
French 0.135 ANE (Full modeling)

but reverses in second part of table:

Pais Vasco 0.136 +/- 0.053 ANE (minimal assumptions)
Spanish 0.165 +/- .057 ANE (minimal assumptions)
French 0.142 +/- .046 ANE (minimal assumptions)

So hard to say much. But if Pais Vasco has more ANE than Spain, that's very interesting.

Similar ambiguity looking at Greek, Bulgarian, and Albanian ANE numbers in the same tables, by the way.

The SHG (Sandinavian Hunter-gatherers) seem to be having ANE admixture as well;
Is the Norwegian SHG admixture contained in ANE or is it the 4th admixture showing as separate reading but in small amounts?

It is pretty clear that the Scandinavian hunter gatherers specifically had minority ANE ancestry, there is plenty of evidence. The mtDNA of the Scandinavian and Russian hunter gatherers is very similar, the PWC and Karelian hunter gatherers shared nearly 40% of the exact same mtDNA haplotypes. There was some type of genetic connection between eastern Europe and Scandinavia during the Mesolithic.
