    Is it Berber (Amazigh) or Egyptian? Dr. Doug McDonald results

    I recently got my FTDNA results interpreted by Douglas McDonald and I must say he helped clear a lot of things. I'm from Northern Argentina (Tucuman province) and I already knew my family is mixed (Mestizos) of Native American (Diaguita/Tonocote) and Iberian (Spanish) ancestry. However, I got around 15% "Middle Eastern" - North African. Now in my results it shows Moroccan, Mozabite, Egyptian.

    I would like someone who knows to see these results and tell me if they look like they're most likely Northwest African (Moroccan/Berber) or Egyptian. Please Check my Profile, I have an album of the Spot on the map plot. (Anthrogenica doesn't allow me to post links or pictures yet since I'm knew, so please check my profile album).

    If you are Amazigh (Berber) from Morocco or Algeria and have had your DNA results interpreted by Doug McDonald, please share here. Thank you!

    This is the second part:
    Most likely fit is 51.8% (+-* 4.1%) Europe (various subcontinents)
    and 14.8% (+-* 4.2%) Mideast (various subcontinents)
    and 33.4% (+-* 0.4%) America (various subcontinents)

    The following are possible population sets and their fractions,
    most likely at the top
    ** Romania= 0.572** Mozabite= 0.092****** Maya= 0.336 or
    ** Romania= 0.572** Moroccan= 0.092****** Maya= 0.336 or

    **** Irish= 0.414 Palestinia= 0.253****** Maya= 0.334

    I also did a custom fit, usually better:

    I would say you can be pretty certain that it's mainly Berber. Most people with Iberian origins score some Northwest African.
