    I'm not Greek??

    Hi, I just received my parents results and from my father's side, it doesn't seem that i'm Greek at all!
    Can someone help me interpret these results?

    Both the results you've posted have Greek. Ancestry DNA combined Italy and Greece into one category. If those are both your parents chances are you're mostly Greek.
    Also note that the caucus and middle Eastern regions both overlap with Greece too.

    Thanks for that sktibo - my father is shocked at the low Greek score. He is a Pontian Greek and proudly believed that his Greek DNA would be higher than my mum's.

    His Pontian ancestry probably fell under Caucus, and with Greece being so close to Asia minor middle East is no surprise.

    You should run their raw datas to Gedmatch. Anatolian Greeks tend to be close to Armenians in many oracles.

    Categories tend to bleed over a lot. Italy/Greece was a poor choice of wording for a category, as it has people thinking in national border terms.
    I think Caucuses/ME on Ancestry.com makes sense for how Ancestry.com assigns categories, I have a bit from my southern Italian side.
    I recently heard someone say that they had a few Pontian Greek matches. Possibly someone with German ancestry from Russia.
    Do you get many non known Greek descent matches? Just curious, as I would imagine Greek communities outside Greece, probably are to some degree mixed in with the local population.

    This should be a good guide

    And then sign in to GEDmatch and insert these raw data.
