Share your MyHeritage DNA Ethnicity Estimates

@Duarte :cool-v:
I guess the complaint should also apply to “Iberia”, no distinctions between Spaniards and Portuguese.

It is true. I totally agree with you. This is very frustrating on MyHeritage and FTDNA. LM Genetics made this distinction for me. I know that LM is based on Eurogenes and nMonte 3, which a lot of people criticize. But for me it was the only one that made distinctions between regions of Portugal and between Portugal and Spain. A big hug dear friend. (y):)

This is very cool(y). But, unfortunately, in Brazil we do not have access to Ancestry/23andMe’s testing Kits.:sad-2:

Hopefully they’ll enter the Brazilian Market soon.

With regrets, I deleted my 23 accounts, I didn't agree with a few aspects of their business model.
Maybe I’ll test again with the next new V#-chip, if ...
 
I've heard that My Heritage throw 1% in to discourage racism, It'd be a shame and dishonest if it were true.

Is there anybody heard similar things?
 
I'm not seeing anything in the way of updates. Maybe the updates were more south European centered and they'll have some updates for Northern Europe sometime soon.

No update for me in Ancestry so far. It's been the same since last fall when I received my results. I think?

no change for me for over a year

 
No change for me (left) or my Mother (right) either. Still as crappy a report as ever…

I hope that yes dear friend Salento. It would be great 23andMe and Ancestry in Brazil. But, with the new government and its follies, I have doubts if any foreign company would be interested to make business in Brazil. :grin::LOL:

the significant sefhardic- north african could come from your campania heritage
i saw full campanians who score it probably just shared med allells

Thanks for posting those descriptions. I'd give you an up-vote, but it doesn't seem possible on this thread.

It is funny how some people either try to say that Southern Italians, are less Italian or they deny the concept of ethnicity. When in fact I have two genetic components that have been in Italy, thousands of years.

FYI

I still think myheritage is a garbage quality test.

You’re kind, Jovialis, and you’re ever welcome dear friend (y):)

Yes, I don't know (I'm no expert, just a newbie). I don't understand why some have it, and some don't. I have relatively close matches from Campania who don't show Sefardic ancestry on MH but who show Middle Eastern instead, or just North African but not Sephardic. And all from the same family. I guess it just shows that MH is not reliable at all?
 
Is there anybody heard similar things?

or:

The genetic makeup of an ethnicity is made up by the ratio of various ancient populations.

The company decides which numerical ratio is to be assigned to every ethnicity (Ethnic Average).

If the value/number of a population is a bit higher of the ethnic average, they’ll add the extra % of that population in the final results by itself.

It can also depends on how far back in time a Company does the test.

Bear in mind that over half the World's population, at one time or another, they were all in Asia Minor, most left, some didn’t or they didn’t go far. (Minestrone :)

probably there is also overlap with the middel eastern and north african to some extent
there is a woman from gozo malta who scored 14.5% sefhardic in my heritage so i think a mixture of north african+ middel eastern
and my heritage randomly chose Sephardi for her.....


p.s
any way after israel it is cyprus and than italy who score the highest % of this ethnicity in there map of countries according to my heritage ......

My ancestors on the paternal side are 100% Italian, and on the maternal side they are mixed, with Iberian ancestors, Native Americans and sub-Saharan Africa (and also an Italian ancestor). I am surprised by Irish, Scottish and Welsh ancestors ... I suppose they refer to distant Celtic ancestors and not to people of these modern nationalities. And it seems to me a mistake to include the Central American population, since being a population with origin in three races, it confuses more than clarifies the origins of a person.

These ethnicity estimates should never be taken seriously. Any company, not only MH.
