Will wait till some of you get your results, before ordering one to understand their clusters. I have sent my Living DNA sample back to them which still hasto be received. I am hoping I will be able to order 23andMe from Bangkok soon

Can testing DNA via myheritage tests give one the ability to move the results to ftdna ,since they are in some sort of "team arrangement" ?

Myheritage DNA is a joke. I transfered my FTDNA dna to them (for free) and had hundreds of matches. Recently they announced they were now out of beta testing and my hundreds of matches dropped to 14. Myheritage will not respond to mine and other people's questions regarding this. This was a couple of weeks ago and I haven't had one new match - my number remains at 14. Stick with the big 3 companies. I am not out any money so it is not a big deal to me, but I certainly wouldn't pay for their dna tests.

As the popularity of DNA tests is growing, every company tries to implement it. I won't be surprised if I see the same tests from Facebook, Google, Microsoft, McDonald's etc :)

The breakdown kind of reminds me of 23andme's:



Ethnicity Reports

In addition to DNA Matching, the DNA results include a fascinating breakdown of your ancestral ethnicity. You will be able to see the percentage of your DNA that comes from different populations around the world. This breakdown, displayed in a list and on a world map, may confirm long-held beliefs about your family origins, or perhaps reveal that you have roots in some unexpected places.

http://19378-presscdn-0-42.pagely.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/Main-Ethnicity-Estimate.jpg

The initial ethnicity reports include 25 ethnicities, but this number will grow significantly thanks to the fascinating project described below.

MyHeritage’s Founder Populations Project

Founder Populations are modern groups that descend from a few individuals who left one area to settle another for political, religious, or social reasons. Founder populations amplify certain gene variants while maintaining significant stretches of uniformity in other DNA sequences. We have reached out to thousands of MyHeritage users from all around the world who are members of Founder Populations — their family trees exemplify consistent heritage from the same region or ethnicity for many generations. We are very happy that 5000 of those users have confirmed their participation in the project. In the past few months, we have been sending DNA kits to project participants far and wide, from Uzbekistan to Fiji, from Greenland to South Africa, and every corner of the globe. The results of these tests will yield a rich DNA data set of more than 100 ethnicities. The largest study of this kind ever conducted, the Founder Population project will enable us to show you your ancestral roots with far greater resolution than any other DNA service.

Standard ethnicity reports are currently available as part of your MyHeritage DNA test results, with the expert reports to be released at no additional cost following the completion of this project.

According to this FAQ, you will not receive ancestral breakdowns if you upload data from another company (although that may change).

A joke may be harsh but it is still a work in progress. I also uploaded to the website and was contacted today by a Dutch woman who was listed as a 16cM match by MyHeritage. Both of us were on GedMatch and neither of us showed the match there. It may be interesting to see where they are 6-12 months from now given the size of their customer base. I am not sure why anyone would want to test there in the near term. Another major issue for me is their lack of a pedigree view. If there are more than a few children per generation, their sole use of a family tree view makes it a nightmare to see common surnames/places of origin.

Yes, if you did Geno 2.0 NG and did a full transfer to FTDNA it puts it in the same format as FTDNA tests and the upload works at MyHeritage or anywhere else that takes FTDNA format data.

Perhaps they limit matches because they don't gain any profit from the uploading of other companies kits? Therefore you only get more matches once you purchase a MyHeritage kit.

Then they are changing the terms of their offer to transfer DNA from other companies.

Some people have reported having as few as 3 matches now. I had hundreds of matches during their beta stage, but they dropped to 14 (and have stayed there) once out of beta. What was going on during the beta stage that hundreds of matches were incorrect and what is going on now that I only match 14 people?

I think it's more likely that they:
1. don't have all that many uploads yet so the database is fairly small (look at DNA.LAND, what does my dad have? two matches? and they have a tiny database)
2. at first they gave people hundreds of matches and all sorts of 2nd cousins from people with heritage mostly not within 1000 or even 3000 miles of most of your heritage so they refined it and made it more selective, but they may have gone a trace overboard in the other way now as I see my dad is missing a match to the daughter of someone (on FTDNA, which itself it pretty likely to discount matches, and GEDMATCH he matches both of them with ease)

anyway my dad currently has like 5 matches and my mom 0

Still nothing apparent on the main page. When I check for my relatives it seems to say my MyHeritage raw file is invalid.

Not quite sure what's happened, but since I paid $0 I can't complain.

I see where it says I have two tests ordered (same date), when there should be one, maybe they did something wrong creating the initial raw data and re-batched them (and thus the kit listed twice now)?

Hi Oleg, that was an autocorrect, I meant FTDNA. I am curious to see how peoples results compare with their 23 andme results. I am excited by the breakdown of east asian ancestry as for both ancestry dna and ftdna, I have got very broad breakdowns.

The division of the world into these races is quite unscientific and it is more scientific to describe them is ancestry. Nepal is a very diverse country and even the populations that are less east asian have considerable east eurasian and/or south eurasian from their ASI.

Oleg (Rus)
01-15-2017, 03:00 PM
Yes, sometimes traditional "races" make too simplified picture, but most people don't understand the meaning of different "ANE", "ASI", "WHG" etc. They want to know, what do ASI and ANE representatives look like and who are they related to, and traditional "races" can explain it, maybe with some specifications.

My results finally arrived! It is still in the beta phase however. I think the results are somewhat accurate. It overestimates the British and Irish for me and underestimates the Italian. My known ancestry is 25% Central Italian, 25% Sicilian, abt. 30% German, the remaining 20% a mixture of English, Welsh, Irish/Northern Irish, and Dutch.


North and West Europe
British and Irish 50.2%

Southern Europe
Italian 34.3%

Asia
West Asian 10.5%

Middle East
Middle Eastern 5%

It will be interesting to see what scores are for people of full English, Irish, French, or German descent.

Itīs a company from Israel. They really have a lot of people with english as second language. Their tests seem like a FTDNA "me too", cheaper and weaker. Their big promise to test with them when you has already a test done with other company is "to profit our (almost inexistent) database".
What a joke! They have one of the tiniest pool of customers, with no database compared to the big guys in the field. Their only hook is the price, but the quality of their test? They didnīt show anywhere the real numbers. Anyone have them? wich is the technology behind their tests? Cause pay 79u$s for a crap test and a tiny database to compare is to lose 79 bucks

Up until now the Ethnicity feature has been limited to only those who took the MyHeritage dna test. If true this is good news.

From what I can tell, for some odd reason, none of the people they are using as foundation members have been given their ancestry results yet, only non-foundation people.
I've talked to two others who got kits to be populations foundation entries and neither of them has ancestry results either while a number of others who got kits later and got matching far later than us all have ancestry results already.

I was so excited to participate in this Founder Population project with Myheritage, hey it was also free.
Still haven't revealed my ethnicity but I do get DNA matches. This is so frustrated, i was more interested in ethnicity than the matches.
Wrote them an email asking when this would be available, but after two weeks still no answer.

That's dna land,dna tribes and now My heritage that gives me small amounts of Native American or similar(Amazonian,Surui) .

I have no idea where it came from as I have no known Colonial American ancestry. 0.8 would point to roughly a 5gt . They say dna never lies,perhaps not,but the interpretation of it can be questionable.

Any idea if and when My Heritage is releasing a chromosome browser? I have a decent match with someone but he refuses to upload to Gedmatch.

From their blog entry in Nov. 2016 (https://blog.myheritage.com/2016/11/myheritage-dna-your-questions-answered/), about halfway down the page:

Q. Will MyHeritage have a chromosome browser?

A. Yes. It’s planned in about 3 more months. Some companies consider a chromosome browser to be too technical and refuse to provide it to their users as a principle. We, however, believe that whatever users consider to be a very important feature, we should strive to provide, and the fact that this tool may be more beneficial to very savvy users and not millions of mainstream customers is not seen by us a reason to not provide it.

Not sure if that's actually happened yet, since I've only just started reading into it.

Interesting results, the North and West European could be from a Basque ancestor. You scored more Chinese than South East Asian is that accurate do you think?
Well Filipinos are majority Austronesian component, which is found almost at its purity in the Igorots of the Northern Philippines. And according to the PCA below Igorots are very near to the East Asian Dai cluster. I even score the 'Daic' component in large amounts on other tests such as DNA.Land and WeGene etc. Filipinos also have a substantial amount of that Dai admixture according to the second admixture chart below, so perhaps we can be categorized as Chinese in a way..just as a less-evolved type I would imagine. The 27% 'Thai and Cambodian' could be due to admixtures more closely related to 'Austro-Asiatic' which peaks in the Cambodian hill tribals. ....The results are still in beta stage though and they do plan on increasing their reference set to 100+ soon, so there will be room for improvement. ...In general though I think 'Austronesian' should be categorized as SE-Asian, but these results are still pretty cool, definitely worth the $79 bucks!

Absolutely and I am happy, ftdna switched my 5% Ashkenazi to Eastern Europe (there was never any slavic migrations in Southern Italy, except for Molise which is far from where my parents come from). With Myheritage I got a dna match who is half Iraqi Jewish and half Ashkenazi. The Sephardi and Ashkenazi match my genealogy and family stories. For once I feel that this ancestry is the most accurate.

05-17-2017, 02:25 PM
When ftdna updated their results and gave me no Jewish (I still got Western Middle East and Eastern Middle East) I emailed them told them its impossible I get none, especially with the new Sephardic component, they gave the answer we know your ancestry better and the whole shabang, now Myheritage results come in and I get 15.2% Jewish overall, ftdna gave me Eastern European and British (both never came into Southern Italy) while myheritage gives me Jewish, Middle Eastern, higher North African and picks up the little African I keep on getting in various Gedmatch calculators, which makes sense with history and again with my family stories and genealogy.

Yes they do, and there is a site which details the Jewish History of Italy, I posted it here once unfortunately its only Italian, so it will hard for non Italian speakers to read, and from it you can even understand the Ashkenazi connection because there was French Jews who came to Puglia and Basilicata during the 14t century.

You are correct. In addition, the Italqim, the original Roman Jews who have been in Italy for over 2000 years, are along with the Romaniot, the original Greek Jews, are the "seed populations" from which emerged Western Jews, Ashkenazi, Sefaradi, Syrian etc.

I am in between two hotspots, like the answer I told to KingJohn from the website I learnt that I am within a 50 km radius of 14 Jewish communities before the inquisition, the towns of Castrovillari and Tricarico had a large Jewish community before expulsion, I think so too that I am the descendants of Bnei Anusim/Neofiti. Think of how many Italian families you know that have a family tradition of avoiding pork meat and considering it unclean, that's my family, we also had the red string to void off the evil eye. This is the case for my direct paternal side, on my Sicilian mother's side, my great grandmother's family knew they had Jewish roots, they kept Jewelry hidden (apparently they didn't want the priests to see) and spoke Arabic amongst siblings, also I found 3 Jewish brothers with my great grandmother's surname living in the neighbouring town before inquistion.

That is way more evidence than many of my Bnei Anussim Latino-origin colleagues have in their families.It sounds overwhelming actually. Here in the U.S, in our Orthodox communities there is a mini boom of returning Latino Bnei Anussim. Every community has people either already after Orthodox conversion/return, or in the process. Most of them report one or two of the phenomena you mention.Your oral family history does not really have an alternative plausible explanation.

Exactly, and that's why I really did not like ftdna's New Myorigins it really did not match with my family's oral history and genealogy. Most of this information I learnt after doing my intital DNA test with nat geo, when I started asking questions, luckily I am curious and was able to learn all of this information, I feel much more complete and am happy to reconnect with my Jewish ancestry.

Greek is a quite intresting, since I noticed one of my cousins having an unusual pull towards this direction in various calulators. Would be inresting to see what he scores here, but could just as easily have come from my other components I guess.

Might the Greek be linked to this? ( The fourth Ottoman-Portuguese Conflicts (1580–1589) was an armed military conflict between the Portuguese Empire against the Ottoman Empire and the Ajuran Empire, in the Indian Ocean.

The Ottoman Navy, from 1580 to 1584 for the first time attacked only the Portuguese ships in the Indian Ocean. In 1585 Mir Ali Bey successfully repelled a Portuguese attempt to capture harbors controlled by the Somalis in the Horn of Africa (Barawa, Jumbo and Mogadishu) but failed to do so.

In 1586 the Portuguese army repelled the Ottomans in Kilifi, Pate and Malindi.

Mombasa was seized by the Ottomans too. source: https://www.onwar.com/aced/chrono/c1500s/yr80/ottomanportuguese1580.htm

I think the "Balkan" category or reference is more South Slavic centered and that "Greek" is more of a pre-Slavic Balkan reference, some Albanians got like 9% Balkan which basically supports this whilst some other Albanians with Slavic ancestry got really high like 60-70%. Their Balkan reference is weird for sure, I get 100% Balkan on MyOrigins but on here only 43% lol I think it's definitely more South Slav centered based on this

Yes i've no doubt i'm mainly Germanic. So i'm happy it clearly picked up my major component. Of all the testing i've done i've become convinced my English must be primarily Anglo Saxon/Scandinavian which can cause issues for these admixture tests.

My Geno next Generation gave me 47 Central Euro 37 Scandinavian. Top two populations Danish and German. Although I posted yesterday paper trail indicates 55% Germanic. If I can trust phasing at 23andME its likely between 60/65%, I say that because. They give 34% Germanic from my mom and only 2.4% of her British, I still have 11.9% Broadly NW Euro from her.

Just downloaded my mom's 23 data. She should come back mainly Germanic as well. On Gedmatch I match a little closer to German then her but it's still her top population. She usually has a little Scottish show up. Which due to recombination possibly I did'nt get any or much of.

Based on upload from Ancestry:

Europe 97.5%
-- North and West Europe 80.7%
---- Irish, Scottish, and Welsh 46.6%
---- North and West European 34.1%
-- South Europe 16.8%
---- Iberian 9.5%
---- Italian 7.3%
America 2.5%
-- Native American 1.5%
---- Native American 1.5%
-- Central America 1.0%
---- Central American 1.0%

It's a bit different from 23andMe, Family Tree DNA, and Ancestry; but I'm not sure it's any less accurate. I think the Iberian number is more what I'd have expected with my grandmother being half Spanish than the number I get from 23andMe. (And it's closer to what I get at Ancestry.)

The "America" percentage is also a bit higher than I get elsewhere, though it's just 0.5% more than 23andMe's 2.0%. Ancestry says 1%; FTDNA says "less than 2%".

EDIT: Apparently, for some reason I ended up uploading my results from all three of the companies I tested with.

So this is based on my FTDNA kit:

Europe 98.3%
-- North and West Europe 82.3%
---- Irish, Scottish, and Welsh 51.0%
---- North and West European 31.3%
-- South Europe 16.0%
---- Iberian 8.3%
-- Italian 7.7%
America 1.7%
-- Native American 1.7%
---- Native American 1.7%

It's interesting to see that here there is no "Central American" at all. Otherwise, though, it's pretty much in the same ballpark.

And this is based on my uploaded kit from 23andMe:

Europe 97.7%
-- North and West Europe 78.5%
---- Irish, Scottish, and Welsh 50.4%
---- North and West European 26.7%
---- Finnish 1.4%
-- South Europe 19.2%
---- Iberian 10.0%
---- Italian 9.2%
America 2.3%
-- Native American 1.6%
---- Native American 1.6%
-- Central America 0.7%
---- Central American 0.7%

It's interesting to see the slightly different the using the same algorithm gives, on these three different (but overlapping) sets of SNPs from one person.

I say MyHeritage is by far absolutely the most unreliable of all companies - I added both my parents yesterday and lo and behold none of the matches I have had are real, because none of them matches either of my parents!

They input DNA to make segments seem larger, but none of the segments have any meaning and only result with a bunch of false positives just so that MyHeritage can lay some exclusive claims.

Matching is far easier to achieve than ethinicity estimates. If MyHeritage so gravely misses the matching part, then what confidence should anyone have about their ethnicity estimates which are far harder than matching.

My results. Compared with FTDNA myOrigins, Ancestry.com Genetic Ancestry, and 23andMe:

--- MyHeritage gives greater weight to English ancestry (21.8%). I can't dispute that. All I know is that some of my Irish ancestry is actually Anglo-Irish.

--- MyHeritage is the only service to have identified Balkan ancestry (14.7%). It cannot be recent, but my direct paternal line did pass through there on the way to Slavic lands, so it's probably correct.

So in terms of ancestry composition, MyHeritage looks good to me.

Once peoples results start to come in, I'll be curious to see how many Western Europeans score any West Asian as well.

I have now got the results. Mine-23,Ancestry and FTDNA. Father-FTDNA.

16480

16481

16482

16483

In all of them the Irish,Scottish and Welsh is low compared to paper trail of around 50% for Irish and Scottish. Father gets no Irish,Scottish and Welsh which fits in with his paper trail; barring a query over an ancestor born in Wales who may not be Welsh. Both my father and I get Finnish. This is just above noise level. According to my paper trail,complete to 3gt, there is no Finnish. Not dismissive of it but it certainly before 3gt level if there at all.
I am not sure how dna passes on. Would it be possible for certain chunks of dna to pass on through generations without diminishing as much as it should in %, ie one should expect if there 1.56% or less but actually get 3% .
The small South Asian for me and Central Asian for my father is intriguing.

I have theory which is not consistent with reference description on their website but is logical.

Myheritage's Balkan reference is in fact Central Euro reference. Modeled on Hungarian, Slovenian, maybe Slovak also.

I saw result of Slovak who has more than 30%, I have 41%. Sikeliot has because of his Polish mother 38%.
But Croat from other forum has 0%. Albanians score very low also.

It's not modeled on Balkan Slav or Albanians, highy improbable that the referece is Romanian or Bulgarian (especially in my case). So what other possibility?

Yh I agree. But why do I score so high of it for an Albanian although I don't have any knowledge of Slavic ancestry?

Anyways they should re-work the Balkan reference and actually base it off from Balkanites and not Slavs/Central-eastern Europeans

I have this same exact theory. I was thinking of calling it Pannonian Basin, but Central Europe is just equally fine.

As to which populations they modeled on, it is a mystery, but assuming they did it on former Yugoslavia and Romania and separated commonalities from the other cluster they defined, and that is Greece, what they would be left with is exactly northern Europeans who migrated down to the south which in itself is the dominant element of Central Europe.

I think this Albanian results is what should be Balkan reference.

Adding to my previous message, it is likely that they did not even purify this component as much as I assumed by separating commonalities found among Balkan populations down to two groups: north (called Balkan) and south (called Greece), but that instead they have the northern reference cluster still polluted with parts of the south. So, highly distinctive populations, such as you and people from Poland, end up getting around half of it respectively.

How much do Yugoslavs get? I have seen some Croats get 0% Balkan for some reason lol. Other Albanians seem to get about 9-10% Balkan but I on the other hand get 43%. But yeah I agree the Balkan reference is probably a mix

Same here. I think that Italian and Greek are both references that are made for actual Balkanites

We have similar Balkan (your even higher) but you have more Baltic than me.
Your wife quite high Scandivanian is probably sign of supposed Mennonite ancestry, as we talk in other thread.

So only Tomenable is nearly without Balkan from tested Central Euros now:)

Based on the map, "Balkan" and "Baltic" overlap almost fully with "East European".

Why did they make such fully overlapping clusters? This is a bit weird IMO.

===========================

Waldemar got "Baltic" because some of his ancestry is from NE Poland.

My results with Ancestry.com raw data. Not much difference except some of the English went into North and West European. With the Euro categories its very much like Ancestry.com for me. I have no known Italian, English, or French/German. All surnames in my tree are Spanish.

16485

I'm still bummed I didn't show any Sephardi on this test when I got 8% on MyOrigins 2 and 12.9% on DNATribes snp analysis.

Oh and apparently myheritage is basing their results for Amerindian on Mestizos which is really elevating their Amerindian category especially for Mexicans that I have seen.

My Amerindian is a little elevated. It's usually 9-10%.
