Just out of curiosity, how common is it to score a 2% number on this category? I donít think by any stretch that I have Eskimo ancestry but itís the first service ever to list me as having such besides ďSiberianĒ on Gedmatch at around 2%. My ancestors mainly go back to Russia, Belarus, Ireland, and an unknown side which presumably has roots in Europe or West Asia.

Its probably due to some older Russian influence, possibly a native population of the area. I get Volga-Ural on some Gedmatch calcs, and while its a small % and no commercial test shows this.

Thanks! Thatís what I originally thought, I also eat Volga-Ural I always assume itís just due to Russian influence. Perhaps If I looked way way back (which is impossible since I donít have any records) maybe I would find a very distant Eskimo ancestor in the tree.

I looked around some more and I found that my Siberian score on eurogenes k13 is much higher than the average Irish or Russian native, I score ~ 2 while the average natives average about 0.44, could this mean I distantly have Eskimo roots? I know it could be due to Russian influence but I now wonder since it keeps popping up in an above average number
