Mine, of course from obvious reason first is USA (744) but next on the list is interesting, Germany (162).

This isn't very accurate for me, because i'm from Northern Ireland, which isn't part of GB but it puts most of my local matches into GB.

Most of the Republic of Ireland matches are in Donegal. I don't have any ancestral links to ROI families.

It should be known that even having my results ready since November 7, I do not have access to the "advanced" mode of Ethnicities, but I only have access to beta (as on transfer kits, yet it's not a transfert kit).

So here's what I get in the "country matches", results could change if I get my "more advanced results" between November 13 and 20:

This shows more people living in USA have done DNA testings including their results in the database than people in the region of my ancestry.

Phoebe Watts

Mine is quite like some of the other UK members posts. As others have said it reflects the countries where testing is popular. But it also reflects patterns of emigration to the US and also to Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

One minor surprise is the German results, as my mom has more German ancestry on paper than my dad. Also, whatever the deal is with the Finnish matches, it doesn't seem related to my actual Swedish ancestry given that my mom doesn't get many.

There is a lot of French who have been tested on myheritage!
It's impressive!
Perhaps because it is a genealogy site and there is a site in French. It attracts more people!

How do you find your top country locations?

msmarjoribanks
11-26-2018, 08:04 PM
Filter by country. I think you have to do each country, but they are in order of number of matches already. Of course, matches in a particular country might not have been born in that country or of that country's ethnic heritage.

I do have a lot of family on my father's side that went to the US over a period of time. The first ones that we have a record were in the 1870s. It is a lot though. :)

You have a crazy number of matches, Jessie. You have way more matches even in the US than I do (I have 3107).

I’m always interested to compare my Welsh result to Jessie’s Irish.

It does make sense that someone of Irish descent has lots of matches in the US and Australia. But thai is a lot and I wonder whether number of matches depends on the source of the report (whether it is a MyHeritage test or an upload).

From my LDNA upload I have over 7,000 matches with almost 4,000 matches in the US. I know that they are from different groups of 1800’s emigrants ( mormon converts, coal miners, slate workers, farmers) as well as a few much earlier emigrants still generating matches.

But we were surprised to see that my neighbour (and DNA match) had over 10,000 MyHeritage matches from her Ancestry upload, with almost 5,500 in the US.

FionnSneachta
12-21-2018, 12:48 PM
I was surprised as well by the number of matches Jessie has. It's a lot more than my 2,090 matches in the US. Although, I don't know of that many relatives who went to America so I guess that's the difference. I haven't accounted for all my ancestors' siblings either so there may be more than I realise.

msmarjoribanks
12-21-2018, 02:01 PM
I was thinking that it just relates to testing pool, but that's interesting about upload vs. testing, Phoebe.

Mine is an upload of my Ancestry, and I should upload my FTDNA to compare. I have differences in matches with my parents (FTDNA uploads) that I've written off to false matches, but I wonder if it would make a difference.

I have far fewer close(er) matches at MH than at Ancestry, but the testing pool is different as only a small number of my matches overlap.

I have added an Ancestry upload to compare with my original LDNA upload. Whilst the overall numbers of matches aren’t very different, there are differences in the individual matches, with some of the largest matches on Ancestry and on the Ancestry upload to MH missing in the LDNA upload to MH.

It's pretty obvious that most people will have their overwhelming amount of matches in the US given that DNA testing hasn't exactly been as popular in other countries. The real question is how many of these matches are actually false positives and which testing companies have a higher percentage of false positives?

I think it is showing the Irish diaspora to a certain extent. I get more matches in the UK than you do which is odd.

United States: 3301

Probably the majority of my gb is from Northern Ireland.

Exactly. Even my husband, who is British with an Irish father (ie, he no ancestry in the US), gets 2,408 matches from the US and only 456 from Britain and 106 from Ireland.

I am interested are those Swedish matches real or false positives.
I have for Sweden 63 matches and for Finland 37 matches.


Out of these 63, 44 are Swedish matches in Scandinavian category with max segment length of 16 cM.
Majority of them have about 0.2% of common DNA with me and almost all have Swedish surnames.


44 Scandinavian Sweden:
max_segment_length number of matches
16 cM 1 (person is 100% Scandinavian according to MyHeritage)
10-11 cM 3
9-10 cM 5
8-9 cM 21
<8 cM 14


11 Scandinavian Norway:
11-12 cM 1
10-11 cM 1
8-9 cM 5
<8 cM 4


5 Scandinavian Finland
8-9 cM 2
<8 cM 3


12 Scandinavian Denmark
8-9 cM 7
<8 cM 5


And for Finland:
30 Finnish Finland
13-14 cM 1
9-10 cM 1
8-9 cM 14
<8 cM 14


25 Finnish Sweden
10-11 cM 1
9-10 cM 3
8-9 cM 12
<8 cM 9


and so on...
My father has Finnish match with max seg. length of 26.4cM and 0.6% DNA (person is 91% Finnish and 9% Scandinavian) and Swedish Scandinavian with 19.2cM and 0.5% DNA.

This was not to me, but I'll answer too: I have 96 Swedish matches, and at least the closest ones are real based on common matches. (My mother is a quarter Swedish, and I have matches who I know descend from 2 of the siblings of her Swedish grandmother, and they are common matches with many of my Swedish matches.)

I also have 38 Finnish matches, and oddly enough the closest ones of those match either neither of my parents or my dad but not my mom (my dad has no Finnish or Scandinavian connections I know of), so I suspect they are not real, but haven't closely investigated.

Some countries test more than others so the matches are influenced by it, I have few Italian macthes despite having considerable Italian ancestry. I'm only 3% Swiss and I have more matches there than in Italy and I'm ~28% Italian. Most of my matches seem to be Americans of Azorean and Madeiran origin. If you have any degree of Asian/African/Amerindian ancestry you will have no matches with people from those ethnicities. I'm 9.5% African and 2.5% Amerindian on MyHeritage but no matches with Amerindians or Africans. The only matches in African countries are Europeans living there, the only African match with some actual African ancestry is the South African one who seems to be a Boer with 4% African ancestry and we probably match through the Swiss side since we share matches with Swiss people.

Matches in France aren't actual ethnic French, but seem to be Italians and Portuguese living there.

Most matches on MyHeritage seem false or too distant though. Only 47 out of my 829 matches are shared with my mother. Out of those, all but a few are too distant to be useful for genealogical purposes.

It is a bit weird I have full Greek matches, but not Bulgarian. Also I have a question is it normal for partially Bulgarian to have Island Greek matches?

Yes it is!

I inherited it too!

It's the Chromosome 6 , position 139 - 152:

What is IBP and how do you differentiate between IBP and non-IBP segments? I will probably do something similar on my data at some point.

When there are a lot of people on the same segment, it is an IBP.
When it is unique, or only to close family, then I consider it not an IBP.

Possibly populational matches? Do they pile up in any specific segment?

I have also 31 Finnish matches , all of them connected with each other but very , very distant ( as their largest segment almost always is under 8cm I take them with a grain of salt .) MH gives me 7 % Finnish which I think is western Russia or other parts of Russia .Now with the update I have Southwestern Russia as a genetic group .

While there are few members from slavic countries on Myheritage, there are logically overrepresented in my relatives and my half-sister compared to those of my mother who is 100% french
Matches from Germany are also overrepresented for me and my half-sister as we had ancestors from there
Interestingly, my half sister get more matches than me and my mother. Matches from anglo-saxons and scandinavians countries are overrepresented for her. Maybe it's due to the fact that my half sister's mother was from northern Normandy ("pays de caux).

I’m of Colonial North American ancestry except one German ancestor, on my dad’s side, who got to Philadelphia in 1820. My dad’s country matches surprised me. All those Finnish matches he has seem legitimate. Which is pretty cool and a complete surprise. I’ve been learning all I can about Finland, Sweden and Estonia since I got his results a couple weeks ago. This may be an ancestry that literally stopped at him. Or mostly, anyway. I had no idea. None of the matches from Finland I have on MyHeritage seem like good matches. They look like common pile ups. But his don’t. We both have a common Finnish match on Geneanet. And he has one Estonian match at Geneanet. Anyway, thought that was neat.

FTDNA tells me that I am about 59 percent Scandinavian, 13 Irish and the rest is England
My heritage tells me that I am more than 90 percent Scandinavian, 5,9 percent from Ireland, Scotland and Wales and 3,8 percent Finland.

The last 400 years my ancesters, mostly have been living in Northern Norway ( Helgeland, Vesteralen and Lofoten area, Troenderlag ( Mid Norway) and the fjords of Western Norway. - Before that, a few came from the part of Norway that now is Sweden (Jemtland) some came from Denmark and Germany ( one from a part that now is in Poland) , and the ones that we can find of the others, lived in about the same areas that i mentioned first.

Before that again, my family tree tells me that the family from Troenderlag, used to rule in Caithness ( Scotland) and Orkney ( before they went home again).

The rest of the ones we know about, are about the same people that almost every person with a long line of known ancesters have on their family tree, so they used to spend a lot of time in Essex, Wessex, York, Dublin, The Hebrides, Iceland, The Faroe island, ... it looks like the part from Troenderlag, spendt a lot of time in Sussex and Wessex ( some of them came from Denmark. The ones that lived in western Norway ( 400 years ago) used to spend some time in Ireland and the Hebrides.

The strange thing is that i get a lot of British matches ( I think a lot of them are Scottish and from Northern Ireland) from the lines that we dont know that much about up in the northern part.

The Irish matches, mostly share matches with relatives i think is from my great grandfathers side ( from the Fjords of western Norway )

That's really intriguing. I'm from the other side of the North Sea and have noticed a similar effect.

I am about 1/3 Irish (mostly County Mayo) and 1/4 of my DNA can be attributed to Essex over the last few hundred years. My matches are principally Norwegian, with some Finnish and more distant Swedish ones.

I listed some of my Norwegian matches here: https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?22577-British-and-Irish-Folks-Who-are-your-closest-continental-European-matches

At first I thought it must be Vikings, but I'm not sure that would produce this effect. I know my Essex side was connected to the fishing industry and used to sail yachts for rich people on the North Sea and to France.

I wonder if some of my sailors ended up in Norway or vice versa :unsure:

Or maybe there are some problems with imputation as well.

Most of the matches in Central-Northern Europe seem to be of Greek or Balkan origin.

Je n'avais pas pris connaissance de cet impressionnant et passionnant travail, bravo ! Avez-trouvé un moyen pour récupérer de manière automatisée les origines ethniques de vos matches ? Ca prend beaucoup de temps de les récupérer à la main

Here is a small summary made from the results of several members whose main origins I have put in brackets (do not hesitate to tell me if I made any mistakes).

In volumes it gives that:
https://imgur.com/1EYymfn

The largest volumes concern members originating from the British Isles with around 10,000 genetic cousins, due to the large number of people tested in the New World (USA, Canada, etc.).

In terms of overall volumes, the Norwegian and Dutch members come next, due to the fact that the inhabitants of the countries seem more numerous than in other European countries to be tested, as well as by the presence of many cousins ​​within the New World.

There are many countries where there are very few genetic cousins.

In general, the maximum is systematically reached by a member originating in or near the country, or including many immigrants originating in the member's country:

Xerxez_sister (75% French, 16% Polish, 9% German) 204. My sister is from Northern Normandy. Northern Normans are close to England on G25, maybe that can be an explanation of the high volume

My kit is a 23andMe V5 upload to MyHeritage. The US is number one by a longshot and in second place is Finland, amusingly enough.

I've noticed that a lot of Russians get Finns as distant matches, no idea if it reflects the Uralic/Finnic tribes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volga_Finns) absorbed by the Slavs as they expanded into modern-day Russia or just the result of Finns being a relatively homogeneous population.

I am 12,5% Siberian Russian ( likely ancestors from North ) and I got 80 full Finnish matches. No idea why and how, but it is very interesting

Here is a small summary made from the results of several members whose main origins I have put in brackets (do not hesitate to tell me if I made any mistakes).

I'll contribute with our own updated numbers. I'm only posting whatever country shows more than 10 matches. Also, my numbers look a bit inflated in relation to my parents because I'm using my Ancestry kit - which gives me better matches -, and they've tested with FTDNA.
