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.
    Do you mind sharing your Iberian percentage from K36? I believe that's my highest Iberian score as well.
    I've seen results from people of British descent score in the teens, that's why I ask.

    I did get less than 1% percentage European Jewish on Ancestry lol, Yeah I do believe it is basically describing East Med on GEDmatch calcs like Eurogene K13 I get 27% East Med so thats pretty close. What does your mother get for East Med on Eurogene K13?

    So I suppose that does add up then, but I'm fairly certain most Iranians get an East Med score that's close to mine yet they get significantly less Mediterranean Islander then I do. So is there some kind of East Med population included in one of the test's East Med grouping that is not included in the other one?

    Maybe a part of your Ancestry is Jewish? That's my guess.

    I got a pretty decent score of Med Islander.
    Before the DNA Land update, it was categorized as Ashkenazi Jewish along with southern european.
    I'm AA.
    Also, on FTDNA I score 7% Iberian, 6.37 Iberian on GEDMatch Eurogenes K36.

    After DNA Land update:

    I only get - Ancestry East_Med 2.29; FTDNA East_Med 2.29; 23andMe East_Med 2.51 on K13. I don't see East Med as explaining my Med islander percentage.
    In fact I can't explain my 9.4-10% Med islander at all.

    My father gets 11% on dna land and on K13 FTDNA East_Med 3.81 . He does get 5% Southeast European on My origins 2, and on dna tribes-

    If Med Islander was higher in Iranian Jewish people then that would make sense, but I haven't seen any Iranian Jewish results on DNA land so I can not be certain. My only other idea would be it has something to do with Cyprus because I've seen a Turkish person score 48% Med Islander, so maybe DNA.land has some Turkish in there Med Islander result?

    Odd but you do seem to score quite a few Southern European groups in DNA tribes, one of which is Sardinia which I believe would fall into the Med Islander group. I don't know too much about British ancestry so I do not know how common this is.

    The Sardinian was my father's results.
