    Help Interpreting Gedmatch Results

    Hi,

    I apologise if I'm asking a very basic question but I was wondering if anyone could help me interpret my Gedmatch results? I've tried reading around but there's an awful lot to read, I have a visual impairment which causes painful eyes during prolonged reading so I'm really struggling to figure this out - if someone could talk me through it I'd be really grateful!

    I did my DNA testing with ancestry, the results are quite vague: 73% British, 21% Ireland/Scotland/Wales, 6% Europe West. I've traced my family tree back about 5 generations and everyone is Scottish or Irish. I put the raw DNA into Gedmatch and ran the Eurotest K15, here is my Oracle results:

    The GEDmatch results confirm that you're pretty much British. Look at the first population in the distance estimate, it's (Southeast) English closely followed by Irish.
    Try K13 as well.

    My family are all Irish. I also get Southeast English as my top result. As the previous poster suggested, try K13.

    So there is some variance on these cals but most people do get the general area.

    That's interesting. Neither of my parents get Irish as a top result. My dad gets Orcadian and my mum gets Danish. It's good to know that the Irish is accurate for some people anyway rather than it being a bad calculator for the Irish.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the replies! Yeah it's interesting that I get southwest English as my top result, I've gone back about 7 generations on the family tree and not found a single English ancestor, I'm sure I have some, just seems odd it's the top result. Here's my K13 results:

    # Population (source) Distance

    16 94% Irish + 6% Spanish_Murcia 2.87
    17 97.8% Southwest_English + 2.2% Kalash 2.87
    18 94.1% Irish + 5.9% Spanish_Valencia 2.87
    19 98% Southwest_English + 2% Balochi 2.88
    20 96.6% West_Scottish + 3.4% Sardinian 2.89

    It looks very, very similar to my K15 I think although the Mixed Mode populations are a little difference (there's some non-European in there). I'm not sure what to make of the Mixed Mode section, I seem to have French and Spanish coming up a lot on there but I don't understand whether than means I have probable French/Spanish ancestry...?

    I've also ran my DNA test through a few other calculators: genecove, geneplaza, myheritage, ftdna and they've all come up predominantly british with about 15% Scandinavian, 13% French/Spanish and 6% greek. (some variations between each one though). I know some of the clans I descend from originated with the Normans so that would perhaps explain the Scandinavian. What do you guys think?

    Thanks so much for the help! Really appreciated
