First post, so hello everybody!

My girlfriend and myself just both took a DNA-test from Geno 2.0 and I am quite surprised by the results.

These are my results, my father was Austrian and my mother is from Switzerland:

46% Scandinavia
30% Southern Europe
15% British Isles
6% Jewish Diaspora
3% Asia Minor

My girlfriend's parents are both from Switzerland and these are her results:

74% Western/Central Europe
16% Scandinavia
4% Asia Minor
4% Southern Europe

I am curious because I always thought Swiss and Austrian people are more or less the same. But as you can see I have zero Western/Central Europe and she has zero British Isles on the other hand, so I wonder if these regional categories are precise. Second issue I have is that all my great-grandparents came from rural parts of Austria/Switzerland and were deeply Catholic, I am not aware of any Jewish ancestors but still have 6% Ashkenazi in me.

Anyone with historical insight able to explain this? Thanks in advance.

Hi! And thank you for sharing results.
I would recommend both of you to upload go gedmatch.com.
The 46% Scandinavian sound a bit high. But These companies often gives high Scandinavian for some reason. The "jewish" admixture could be some north italian.

Ok, thanks for the answer!

I will check this site out, do you know in what format I have to provide the DNA and if have to contact Geno 2.0 for raw data?

I am also surprised by the 15% British Isles since I definitively have no ancestors from this region.

These results are not science. But, even worse, check your raw data. Your haplogroup is based on science, but they give customers the wrong result.
