One thing I noticed about my results that's different from other African American DNA LAnd results is the presence of Mid-Turkic ancestry, and "Jewish" ancestry.

For all AA results I viewed, it was a combo of African, North European and "South European". Specifically.

My result is the only one I have seen with these two categories from AA examples.

p.s
notice that you score ambiguous 4.2% it is under the aschenazi/levantine
this could be med-islander genes instead
infact more likely. :)

Interesting! Thanks.

The ancestry seems pretty consistent. I got 3% "Central Asian" from FTDNA as well.
I compared my results to other AA's and that category usually does not pop up for us.

You were right.

I re-uploaded my DNA under a different email. (same raw DNA file)

and got results that are a lot less "ambiguous"

this looks much more accurate.

I was wondering why the results are different

but its worth noting that the first result I posted was from October 2015.

it seems that they have since updated their systems. :)
