I got my 23&Me results and transferred them to WeGene. It says I'm primarily (>90%) European and the rest of my ancestors are from South Asia. My European heritage is Eastern European, so is it possible that the Southern Asian in me is Roma? How could I tell?

If you really have Romani roots, your results should also contain some Middle East and Balkans. I wouldn't trust WeGene, anyway :)

I manage an account for someone who is 100% Kashubian Polish and these are her WeGene results:
European 99.96%
45.13% Hungarian
28.21% Finnish/Russian
25.99% French
0.61% English
0.01% Others
Others 0.04%

23andme:
European 99.6%
Eastern European 70.9%
British & Irish 2.9%
Finnish 0.4%
Scandinavian 0.3%
Broadly Northwestern European 16.1%
Broadly Southern European 0.7%
Broadly European 8.3%
Yakut 0.2%
Broadly East Asian < 0.1%
Broadly East Asian & Native American < 0.1%
Unassigned < 0.1

WeGene gives weird results for all of the profiles I uploaded. It's designed for E Asians, not Europeans. Where in Eastern Europe are you descended from?
