I have a better understanding of Eurogenes K13. But I've heard that the higher K number is more accurate?

Here are my Eurogenes K36 results

16835


I'm really interested in the Iberian score, it seems high. I know I have Southern European ancestry, but is this definitive Spanish ancestry or something else like French?

I am of mostly Iberian descent. My knowledge of that area is that the Iberian Peninsula is Spain and Portugal. Although France is not a part of that exact geographical location, it is sometimes included in population reports.

As for the Eurogenes K36, very hard to tell how accurate it is (at least if you don't know your exact background) because there is no oracle attached. But it is a fascinating tool.

Here is a tool that compares how similar your k36 results are overall to other populations that you might find interesting.

This map is showing the average k36% that shows up as Iberian in the populations across Europe. And as you can see from this map there are many areas across Europe that have a similar avg Iberian. Along with the peninsula France & Northern Italy also have a fairly high average. With any average there is also people among the populations that have higher/Lower.

My father, according to the paper trail, is primarily SW Germanic and his Iberian is 17.21 for example.

Thank you so much for the detailed response and the maps, I really appreciate it.
