23andMe Share your 23andMe Ancestry Composition

Looking at some numbers, it seems the highest % of a certain pop tend to be associated to phasing, when results generally* increase in resolution. In my list of 12, for example, the highest Italian % (47.4), Balkan (7.6), Iberian (4.9), British (8.3), Scandinavian (0.8) and Eastern E. (1.7) are from people who had close relatives tested too.
*I say "generally" because after phasing one of the mentioned matches had her S.E. dropped off 0.2, NW.E. dropped off 3.6 and Broadly European increased 3.6 in the speculative mode, oddly. I presume the precision estimated by 23andMe (see Testing & Validation in https://www.23andme.com/ancestry-composition-guide/) refers to the conservative threashold, otherwise, those results couldn't have changed that way, in theory (precision of 0.95 for NW.E.). However, I haven't recorded her sub-regional results before phasing, then I don't know if these results, particularly, increased in resolution or not. Possibly they did.

This is great! I have added the percentages. Maybe I should combine your results of Veneto with those from the pie chart? Do you know if your results are already included?
I'm sure one is there: himself, heheh. I think at least two of my matches are there, but let's wait. I just asked him.
He told me he has more samples right now, however, the averages haven't changed significantly since the first (those I posted) have been done months ago.

How would you describe your ancestry? All Baden-Württenberg or also Alsace and other regions?
 
My own statistics for Venetians (roots in TV and BL provinces mainly) based on 12 samples to which I have access, including 2 (my father and I) with a little "touch" of MN and 1 with a little touch of UD. :) The scores don't total 100% because of the rounding down, and I discarded those below 0,1%.

- Southern European: 55,3
italian: 31.0
balkan: 4.1
iberian: 1.3
sardinian: 0.1
broadly S.E.: 18.3
- Northwestern European: 36.2
french & german: 15.5
british & irish: 2.7

scandinavian: 0.1
broadly NW.E.: 18.2
- Eastern European: 0.2
- Ashkenazi Jewish: 0.2
- Broadly European: 8.0


My mother presents the highest Balkan % (7.6) from the list, followed by my father (7.1). I have the highest Iberian % (4.9) and Scandinavian % (0.8).

Excluding those 3:

- Southern European: 52,8
italian: 30.0
balkan: 3.5
iberian: 1.1
sardinian: 0.2
broadly S.E.: 17.3
- Northwestern European: 38.4
french & german: 17.7
british & irish: 1.5
scandinavian: 0.1
broadly NW.E.: 19.0
- Ashkenazi Jewish: 0.2
- Broadly European: 8.3

The statistics below are more accurate, because they include many more samples (from all parts of Veneto, I guess). They have been done some months ago by a 23andMe user from Veneto.
Veneto (n=38), Lombardy (n=24), Tuscany (n=12) and Sicily (n=50):

Thanks
Was this data from the person in 23andme who has the surname Dall`Ava ?
If so, He is from Vazzola

In regards to discarding, ................I discarded all mine from my father, wife, sons and myself who have 0.1 to 0.4% of Mongolian
also discarded 0.2% of North-East Africa from my mother. ..............if you need these small fractions, let me know
 
@Maciamo
Just one was included: himself. He haven't included my other matches and my family.
Excluding his own sample and those three with traces of MN or UD, we would have for Veneto (n=46 ; mine 8 added to his 38), rounding off:

- Southern European: 58.4
italian: 33.0
balkan: 3.9
iberian: 2.0
sardinian: 0.1
broadly S.E.: 19.2
- Northwestern European: 31.8
french & german: 11.9
british & irish: 2.1
broadly NW.E.: 17.6
- Eastern European: 0.4
- Ashkenazi Jewish: 0.1
- Broadly European: 9.0

@Sile
You posted just the results of your mother and wife, and without the Broadly European (what are they?). I could consider your father too. The number of samples would grow to 49.

Mine, from Lyon, France. But my maternal grandfather was born in Alsace a few months before this region was integrated into France.

Those are interestingly high British and Irish percentages for Lyon and Alsace being more south and east from Anglo-Saxon or Gaelic areas. I wonder if British and Irish Scores might correlate more with Hallstatt culture.

You posted just your wife's and mother's results. What about the other % of your father? Doesn't your wife have any Balkan %?
(The author of the map haven't included your family either.)

As for the little %s, I think they wouldn't do any difference, since I'm ignoring averages below 0.1.

Maybe it comes from my Alsatian grandparent, right? Unless this is because Lyon is a burgundian population home.

Yeah I'm not sure how these companies can differentiate between a Frank and a Saxon or between a Gaulish Celt and a Gaelic Celt? I'm thinking maybe French and German or Western European on other sites is primarily Germanic with a substrate of Celtic and that British and Irish is primarily Celtic with a substrate of Germanic.

It doesn't work this way. The phased results doubled don't necessarily corresponds to the actual results.
I could consider one of your sons instead.

Much of Europe was buried under miles of ice ten thousand years ago. As the glaciers receded over millennia, Neolithic farmers from the Near East joined Paleolithic hunter-gatherers to settle Europe.

The peoples of East Asia and the Americas have a shared genetic history. Their common ancestors left the Near East as early as 80,000 years ago, migrating across Asia. The ancestors of Native Americans began to cross into the Americas 12,000 to 15,000 years ago.

Never seen native American before

The following map, very interesting, was done from the same author. It shows the places where he found the highest scores for some 23andMe clusters so far, i.e., people from most of these places would be very well represented genetically by the reference samples - wherever they come from - which make up the related pop, then they don't get so much from others.

That's great. My aim is to make distribution maps for each component once I get enough data for each country.

In my samples, the highest French & German is from Wallonia in Belgium (70%), and the highest Scandinavian are a Swede (89.6%) and a Norwegian (87%), who both exceed the figures in this map. The Norwegian is from Oslo, but I am not sure that's also where his ancestors come from. The southern Swedish-Norwegian border near Oslo may have the highest Scandinavian. Incidentally that's also where haplogroup I1 peaks (about 50% of the population).
