    FTDNA Maronite/Druze FTDNA MyOrigins- problem with identification??

    I am a quarter Lebanese and have always been confused about the result FTDNA gave me: British Isles (58%) Southeast Europe (19%) Iberia (9%) West Middle Eastern: (9%) Asia Minor: (6%) Trace: South Central Asia I have no known Iberian or Southeast European ancestors at a time recent enough to...

    One Family One World Regional DNA Projects

    I announced two months ago the launch of the One Family One World Project, a partnership between Eupedia and Living DNA. I have been very busy lately, but finally found time to present the project on Eupedia. My contribution to the project was to delimit the boundaries of the proposed genetic...

    LivingDNA Living DNA launching One Family One World Project in cooperation with Eupedia

    I am excited to announce that Eupedia is teaming up with Living DNA to launch the largest genetic ancestry project to date, which will cover most of the world's countries, regions and ethnic groups. It is called the One Family One World Project (see blog post) and it aims to initially recruit...

    LivingDNA Is the Central Italian component in Living DNA a good proxy for Roman ancestry?

    I now have the results of several Belgian people who tested with Living DNA. All got a bit of Scandinavian, and some got a from 1 to 3% of French, Basque, West Balkans, North Anatolian or Kurdish. But what really stood out is that all of them had considerable amount of Italian DNA, and in all...

    Global 10 nMonte with Ancients: My results

    I played around with nMonte and Global 10. Managed to get some pretty small distances in the end. Though, we need Bronze Age and Iron Age genomes from Southeastern Europe for a better accuracy. Background (results with commercial calculators): 23andme FTDNA MyHeritage DNA Land Global...

    More genomes from Mesolithic Romania and Spain (Gonzales-Fortes et al. 2017)

    It's relatively small paper compared to the mastodons published earlier this month, but nevertheless interesting. Paleogenomic Evidence for Multi-generational Mixing between Neolithic Farmers and Mesolithic Hunter-Gatherers in the Lower Danube Basin (extended PDF with supplementary materials...

    Hello! I'm a new member here. Ice might We

    My MtDNA is H65. And our FTDNA Y67 marker test is being done now on their kit# 561193. There's a possibility a third great grandfather has had 111 test. We will know soon if we match to him. If so R1b P312 might be our group, futher broken down hopefully by our 67 marker test...

    23andMe Share your 23andMe Ancestry Composition

    The new 23andMe experience, starting in 2016 and replacing the old version of other customers the early months of 2017, has been a disappointment for many veteran users. One major let down is that it is no longer possible to search for people with whom to share by location or other profile...

    23andMe Comparing 23andMe chip versions

    23andMe was founded in 2006. Its original test (v1) cost $998. It was replaced in September 2008 by a more affordable test (v2) that only cost $400 and really kickstarted the company's rise. Two years later, v3 was released, which increased the number of SNPs to close to one million. Oddly...

    FAQ: How can we trace our ancestry with DNA? Which DNA test to choose?

    I have updated an old FAQ page about ancestry DNA tests: Ancestral DNA tests: what should I know before I start? It explains among others how can we trace our ancestry with DNA and which DNA test to choose.

    Southern Neolithic route brought Megaliths from the Levant to Western Europe

    I have hypothesised for several years that the wave of Neolithic farmers who came from the southern Levant through North Africa brought a quite different set of haplogroups and autosomal admixture than the Anatolian farmers that colonised the Balkans and Central Europe. There is ample...

    K12b Percentage of European & Middle Eastern admixture by ethnic group

    I realised that many people did not have a clear view of the percentage of European ancestry outside Europe. Goga wrongly believed that Armenians had much higher European ancestry than Indian Brahmins, when in fact Brahmins have about three times more European admixture (15% against 5%) if we...

    Genetic Test for Armenians?

    Hi, I am Petros, and I am Armenian. Which genetic test would you recommend I take: Dodecad, Eurogenese, etc. Should I test my Y-DNA as well. What information does the test give you? Are the most expensive tests necessarily better? What price range should I expect the test to cost me?

    Dodecad & Eurogenes admixture of Late Copper & Early Bronze Age genomes

    The Copper Age was a period of transition between Neolithic societies and the Indo-European migrations. Although the Chalcolithic started in Neolithic Southeast Europe and Anatolia, it quickly spread to the Pontic-Caspian Steppe, from where PIE Steppe people expanded cross most of Europe and...

    K36 To what do Eurogenes K36 admixtures really correspond?

    Eurogenes' K36 calculator is quite popular because it has a high number of components, which gives an impression of accuracy. Unfortunately the component names have not been properly labelled and can indeed be very misleading. That is what I am going to try to rectify here. I have run about 20...

    African admixture in ancient Germanic/Scandinavian people

    I have analysed dozens of ancient genomes using Dodecad dv3 and K12b and Eurogenes K36, and I noticed that almost every time ancient Scandinavians or Germanic tribes possessed non-negligible percentages of African admixture. These were sometimes reported as Central African or Northwest African...

    Dodecad & Eurogenes admixture for Early vs Late Bronze Age Scandinavian genomes

    I have had a look at Mesolithic and Neolithic genomes, an Early Bronze Age Yamna genome, compared Corded Ware vs Sintashta genomes, and analysed the Hinxton Celtic and Anglo-Saxon genomes. Here is another Corded Ware (or Battle-Axe) culture genome, but from Denmark instead of Poland., which I...

    Dodecad & Eurogenes admixture for Sintashta & Corded Ware genomes

    After analysing Mesolithic and Neolithic genomes and a Yamna genome, here are genomic admixtures for the Sintashta and Corded Ware cultures, two R1a-dominant north-east European Bronze Age PIE cultures. Keep in mind that the component names for the Eurogenes K36 admixture are not accurate and...

    Comparing Mesolithic and Neolithic genomes using the Eurogenes K36 calculator

    I have run a Yamna genome as well as the Iron-Age Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Hinxton genomes in the Eurogenes K36 calculator. Now is time to have a look at some Mesolithic and Neolithic Europeans. Keep in mind that the component names for the Eurogenes K36 admixture are not accurate and do not...
