View Full Version : Unusual result for Irish person?

I put my mother's (mostly Irish with some Romani) 23andme results into DNA Land and was quite shocked at what came out:


I'm thinking some of the Sardinian might be misread MENA as a result of her Romani, but the 1.5% Amazonian?! She does score consistent, albeit low, amounts of Siberian/Amerindian on genetic calculators. Is this real? If so, is it Native American (Skræling/Beothuk?) or is it perhaps misread Central Asian? I score 1.0% Tatar on Geneplaza K29 and 1.5% Central Asian on Pickrell if that's any help.

Since posting this, I've been doing some research and I've deduced that most (if not all) of my Romani ancestry comes from my paternal side, making it most likely to be English Romanichal (there's been some discussion about the identity of my grandmother's grandfather, and I know it's hackneyed but she and her children all have dark hair and features). While my mother does have gypsy ancestry, it's mostly Irish Traveller. Any Romani on her side is pretty far back.
