Ancestry Results:
Europe east: 29%
Italy Greece: 22%
Great Britain: 20%
European Jewish: 7%
Middle East: 7%

My Heritage Results
Eastern European:
Balkan: 57.6%
Baltic:2.9%

South Europe
Iberian:20.8%
Italian: 4.8%

Irish Scottish Welsh: 1%

Middle East 7%

North Africa 5.9%

I feel like these results are so different from the two tests. My mom is from South of Italy and my dad's from Poland. Can someone better explain this to me why Balkan is 57.6% and then my italian is 4.8%?

What part of Italy is your mom from? We have a similar background.

My Heritage

Europe

North and West Europe 71.7%
English 61.1%
Scandinavian 7.8%
Irish, Scottish, and Welsh 2.8%

East Europe 19.9%

Baltic 5.1%

Italian 4.2%

Ancestry overestimates my British percentage, but if you combine Britain, Ireland and Europe West into one region as "North West European," my results of 95% total I think would essentially be correct. MyHeritage vastly overestimates my Eastern European and Southern European ancestry.

European: 98.5%
Scandinavian: 51.6%
North and West European: 4.9%
Italian: 22.5%
East European: 19.5%
Africa: 1.5%
North Africa 1.5%

My Ancestry DNA and DNA.land results are in my signature for comparison.

My MyHeritage results confuse me, as I have been able to trace nearly all of my known ancestors back successive generations (many sets of 4x and 5x great grandparents) to Germany and the Netherlands. I have no known Scandinavian, Italian or Eastern European ancestors. My mom's side is from Saxony and Lower Saxony, so I wonder if that contributes towards the Scandinavian %. Curious stuff!

My ancestry is pretty much the same as yours, and funnily enoguh i get similar results from MyHeritage.
Scandinavian 51.6%
English 9.9%
English, Irish, Scottish 3.5%
East Europe 18.4%
Italian 14.6%
Africa North 1.8%

I too have traceable Swiss, Dutch and English heritage, though i do have a lot of gaps due to minimal information from a few sides of my family.
