    Not that i am aware of. I dont get Madagascar on dna tests nor i have malagasy matches. Plus, i have a strong melanesian trace. Malagasies hardly score melanesian.

    Hi Hurricane,

    Here's a thread with other Northern and Eastern-Africans who've also noted minor non-negligible ASI/East-Asian related ancestry:
    Ancient Eurasia K6 - Deducing Traces of Back to Africa Migrations

    This was just an observation with ADMIXTURE but the same can be noticed with nmonte, myself and family members keep getting minor affinities to East-Asians/ and Austro-Asiatic speakers.

    It might be related to paleolithic back-to-Africa migrations, since these regions underwent massive demographic changes in the neolithic.
    Perhaps the missing connection will be found when more paleolithic samples are uncovered in North-Africa and SW-Asia.

    Then why does oceanian show up on commercial tests which are focused on recent ancestry?

    I'm guessing there's several factors but ultimately the ancestral clusters from these companies are limited to the reference samples at their disposal. It's likely these East-Asian affinities are appearing on "recent" admixture runs due to lack of African samples from regions exhibiting this affinity -- so they're therefore unable to bucket the alleles within a modern African cluster (Saharan, Berber, NW-African, North-African, Maghrebi...).

    Out of curiosity, have you been tried the Chinese testing company GeseDNA? Here's a post from years back. According to their modern calc, I'm 2.6% South-Asian:



    Since you have Berber ancestry, and my ethnic group migrated from the lake Chad basin, I wonder if there might be an ancient Central-Saharan connection?

    The one possibility i can think of is maybe distant Malagasy ancestry, but i think its most likely an ancient component as @NiloSaharan said.
