My latest updated results from Ancestry (origin Maluku Islands - East Indonesia):


39605


(It is much better now. But based on their current reference panel, I see Philippines as "Austronesian" instead of really "Philippines". Let's hope that Ancestry in the future has a more extensive reference panel (especially from our area) that will give the testers from East Indonesia (West Melanesia) a more accurate result.)

Nice! Did you see these (pre-update) results of a Timorese girl already? She's mixed/mestišo but still interesting to see "Melanesia" being higher than "Philippines".

Yes :) , I did see it, super interesting! It's good to have more testers from the "Wallacea area" ...

How many DNA matches do you have right now from around that area?

Just two lol.. One is from Savu Island, near Timor (also the roots of my maternal grandmother) and one from Maluku.
I have a total of 21 matches only ;)

Haha i figured also with the recent deletion of smaller matches on Ancestry. But still nice!
Are the other matches mixed or from other parts of Indonesia or even the Philippines?

I think that isnt uncommon especially in more isolated peoples and tribes in Wallacea such as interior Timor Leste Papuan speaking tribes,Moluccan Alifuru tribes in interior Seram,and especially Southeast Moluccans like Kei,Aru,Alor,Babar,and Tanimbar Islanders.
