    Talking GED Match interpretation

    Hello,
    I'm new in this forum. Like many, I hope to learn more about my DNA results. So, I went to GED Match and I got the following report

    Eurogenes K13 4-Ancestors Oracle

    Admix Results (sorted):


    # Population Percent
    1 East_Asian 84.73
    2 Oceanian 5.05
    3 South_Asian 2.92
    4 North_Atlantic 1.83
    5 Siberian 1.62
    6 Amerindian 1.44
    7 Baltic 1.30
    8 Sub-Saharan 1.11


    I understand the East Asian, Oceanian and South Asian, but I don't understand the rest. What is North Atlantice (is this Europe)? What about Siberian (is this Eastern Asia)? What is Ameridian, Baltic, etc? Do these mean I'm not 100% Asian?

    Any help from anybody is greatly appreciated! Thank you

    Well, I can't help with the original post above. But I'm in the midst of trying to figure out my own mess. If I accept my maternal grandfather as really being my maternal grandfather, then it sort of looks to me that my GedMatch Eurogenes V2 result may just be the most accurate. It is different than Ancestry DNA or FTDNA in part. Now, my said grandfather was born in Austria. But, his parentage may not have been entirely germanic Austrian. That's where the differences come from. I recall that someone with a Ukrainian surname sponsored him to the USA, for example. And I recently got a Ukrainian DNA match at FTDNA. I mean, she is in the Ukraine and her family tree is in the cyrillic alphabet. Furthermore, there were Italian family acquaintances back in Wisconsin that I can't see have any relevance to my normal relatives. Now Steyr, Austria, where he was born was a metallurgical center. I expect workers there came from all around the empire, including Milan, Italy and eastern provinces of the Austrian empire. So, the eastern Europe and Mediterranian components of Eurogenes would then make more sense.

    North Atlantic would be European, Amerindian=American Indian, Siberian, yeah, NE Asia, Baltic=north-eastern Europe (think Baltic states, although there's a decent amount in a number of European populations).

    Does it mean you aren't 100% Asian? Maybe but I wouldn't assume that (probably not). Small amounts like this are common "noise" in the results, and show similarities between even widely disparate populations, and there is some common ancestry (Baltic probably has Asian input, Amerindian and Siberian would, of course, so on).

    Good example: I don't have any South Asian ancestry, yet get 2.15% on EurogenesK13. I get .57% Oceanian even.

    If you look at the spreadsheet option under the results you see the average results for different populations. You can see that many get a mix of these, or some noise. (Japanese, for example, gets about 33% Siberian, and a sprinkling of several others, as well as around 65% East Asian.)

    If the above isn't enough, I'm a wee mite suspicious of my paternal grandmother, actually her parents. I don't get any, with one exception that may be a sideways match, matches in her alleged paternal side. That would explain my less than expected total Norwegian percentage. But then again, it might just be recombination at meiosis result. I do get matches on her maternal side (German). I'm referring to percentages from FTDNA and Ancestry in this case. I'll have to take a look at GedMatch before I can comment on that. Actually, the matches or no matches, as the case may be, are referring to Ancestry. I haven't dug into the FTDNA data yet.

    later: OK, I just looked at GedMatch EU V2. It gives me 31.23% North Sea, which I guess would include Norway. Atlantic is 29.66%. But then they throw in Baltic at 10.06% and East Europe at 10.15%. West Med is 10.10%. Then several misc. trace regions. That set of regions doesn't perfectly align with Ancestry and FTDNA. I don't know where East Europe and Baltic come from, unless partly my Austrian Grandfather that I already mentioned. Poland borders the Baltic Sea, as does Sweden. Hmm...

    still later: Well, it looks like my paternal grandmother is legitimate. I just looked on Ancestry, and her Norwegian connection has a small circle which I never noticed before. So her daddy really was Ole Sale.
