    What is the reason for Native American results in a South Asian on myOrigins2?

    Okay so I have trace results from North America and one other South Asian girl I knew did as well, I was wondering why this happens? I can understand Oceania(which I also got) and maybe east/SE Asia but Native American seems way too far. Is there a possible genetic link in the form of an ancient ancestor that branched off in Eurasia before spreading to North America and South Asia?

    Edit: for the record, WeGene did this too but they gave me SE Asia and China too, so there's a continuous link which makes sense...but ftDNA skipped over east Asia and just went to North America which is curious...

    I get 1-2% Oceanian in all my Ethnicity results...about half also give me 1% NA...I'm heavily Western European!
