    I emailed Dr. Doug McDonald for his comments as well:

    Most likely fit is 100% A-Ethiopian (East African)
    which is 100% total Africa

    The location error = 0.005792 with 1 group

    The following are possible populations,
    most likely at the top:


    The following are possible population sets and their fractions,
    most likely at the top

    A-Ethiop= 1.000

    That’s Amhara, but it could be also Tigray.
    Oromo is unlikely.

    The American on the chromosomes looks like noise, while the
    Euro looks more actually possible .... but in East Africa sometimes
    Euro appears for no known reason. Of course if you are in fact
    of long-standing American location, they could possibly be real.

    Cool. It's interesting how this "Asian" component seems so strong in East Africans. I am guessing it more reflects the early isolation of Asians who retained some East African-specific genes rather than reverse migration from Asia to Africa.
