    Mediterranean Islander???


    I have some questions about my DNA.Land results. 1. what exactly is a mediterranean islander? I know its like Maltese and Cyprus, but why do I get so much of it when I do not get any Italian in AncestryDNA. The cluster seems to be a mixture of Middle Eastern and European because I see it in many European results and in some Middle Eastern results. So if anyone can explain this group to me and why I got it that would be great. 2. I have zero Arab/Egyptian all the Iranians I've seen get a large percentage of Arab/Egyptian, even if they have Med Islander, but I have literally 0% Arab. Could my families nomadic tribe roots be the reason why? or is it just that grouping is more based off of North African DNA maybe?

    My results:


    West Eurasian 100%
    Ashkenazi 92%
    Kalash 2.4%
    Southwestern European 2.4%
    Ambiguous 2%
    South/Central European 1.2%

    I wonder about the Kalash; is it a proxy for something Iranian? The SW European comes up as N African in other calculators

    I do not think it's a proxy for Iranian because I am fairly typical Iranian and I have a very small amount, alot Iranians had no Kalash actually.

    I have 0% Italian results on Ancestry, and also in my real family tree. I do however have Iberian and I always thought the Mediterranean islander from dna.land was related to that. I was thinking it might be a mixture of european and north african, which would make sense I suppose. I'd like to know what exactly it is too

    I didn't score any Mediterranean Islander in Dna.land from my Ancestry raw data ,and I scored only 3,5% Mediterranean Islander in Dna.land from my FTDNA raw data ,Although I have Cypriot as the 1st Population Sharing in many gedmatch calculators

    I'm Tajik (Tajikistani) and I keep getting "Mediterranean Islander" too-- albeit at ~7%.

    I have not gotten this result at DNA.Land yet. Instead, my closest affinities are as follows:
    - SW Euro allocated: 8.4% SW Euro & 2.3% Sardinian
    - S. / Central Euro: 2.5%

    On Eurogenes K36, my highest AC is Iberian, & I seem to have higher Iberian compared to other British Isles testers that I have seen. On K13 & K15, I match SE English at single pop mode and various British or affinity populations. However, thus far, I get 0-2% southern Euro populations on commercial DNA tests. At 23andMe, a portion of the 1.5% S. Euro is Italian. Hence, I have yet to understand the genetic affinity between my Eurogenes K36 and other results.

    I think Mediterranean Islander is more in line with East Med, not so much Italian. Likely a mixture of Levantine, Sephardic. My mom scores 20%
