    West Asian and South Asian is GEDMatch?

    I got my Ancestry DNA test results a couple weeks ago. I'm according to Ancestry 100% European (I'm not complaining. I actually prefer it that way) however it didn't really add up.

    So I put my RAW DNA through GEDmatch and to my surprise it said (K13 Eurogene) It said I was 4.29% West Asian? and then 2.11% South Asian? I have no ancestry from the middle east for the number to be that high. I've checked.
    So I am thinking it's mistaking it maybe for my Native American DNA? Because Ancestry didn't find any Asian DNA. My 3x grandmother was full blooded Cherokee and I know this for a fact. It should've showed up to some extent.
    My Family History on my Dads side is from England, Scotland (My very high North Atlantic DNA) and also German/Austrian. However again it hardly showed up probably because the Anglo Saxon trumped the German. I did find out that
    a lot of my ancestors that came from Germany their families came from Hungry to German (before Germany actually existed) in the 1300s - 1500s. Do Hungarians share any dna with South Asians or West Asians (I assume not) but I'm taking a guess.

    Anyone have any idea why the West and South Asian would be that high? btw WHEN I used K36 Eurogenes it had at most 1% other than European. Pretty much an 8% difference from K13.

    Ged Match:

    North_Atlantic: 49.95
    Baltic: 24.80
    West Med: 11.73
    West Asian: 4.29
    East Med: 4.49
    Red Sea: 1.09
    South Asian: 2.11
    East Asian: 0.22
    Amerindian: 0.17
    Oceanian: 0.83
    Sub-Saharan: 0.28

    ANCESTRY DNA:

    Great Britain: 93%
    West Europe: 3%
    Finland/Northwest Russia: 1%
    Ireland/Scotland/Wales: 1%
    Scandinavia: >1%
    Iberian Peninsula: >1%

    In K13 calculator, it is the same thing for every European, In the NW Europe, it reflects the IndoEuropean invasion of the Bell Beaker groups in the 3nd millenia BC and Bronze Age. Personally I am 100% West European and I have a particularly high 8.4% West Asian..

    South Asian component has decent west eurasian in it, so it might be just shared ancestry. I don't see much hint of ameriindian in your results that'd be different from other west European decendants. Can you try some more calcs like eurogenes k36. Also try Harappa since it does a good job breaking South Asian and Ameri Indian components. so

    Your results look typical for the region you ancestrally from.

    You have a typical Northwestern European Eurogenes K13 result, and no Amerindian or actual South Asian ancestry.

    You can compare your Eurogenes K13 result to the Eurogenes K13 reference population averages here:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...#gid=804264822

    The West Asian component of Eurogenes K13 peaks among Georgians and Abkhasians and has nothing to do with East Asians or Amerindians, it is found in all modern European populations in above noise levels except for Sardinians and Basques. Your South Asian component is also in normal levels for the British Isles and does not indicate actual South Asian ancestry.
