    Very surpsing DNA result for an Asian

    Hello all,
    I have discovered that I carry British Isles and Finnish DNA, also found out that I have many 5th/6th cousins (over 600 matches), and with others I share common ancestor and X DNA match, that are from those regions.

    Here comes the surprising part, I always thought I was fully Asian, born and raised in Central Asia (Kazakhstan), never knew anyone in family having relatives that are from any European countries. How is it possible, honestyle that is a big surprise!!!!

    Also, on FTDNA it came up 16% Hunter Gatherer, 16% Farmer, 17% Metal Age Invader and exactly 50% non European. That was surprising as well.

    Maybe by studying the history of the region your ancestors came from you might find sort of clue. Perhaps between 1600 and 1800?

    Wow this was all on FTDNA? Those matches are probably false because it's all but impossible for that to happen unless you have a close European ancestor. Finnish dna would match you however since finns have a large amount of northern Asian (ie Siberian) ancestry ( around 11 percent I believe on avg)

    Maybe they were Volga Germans, that's not unusual in Kazakhstan.
