Though I will saw, they did manage to get the Levant % pretty close, but since they only give Levantine Christians like 45% Levant, it doesn't make much sense either.


    Sicilians do typically get much more South Italy and much less Near East, but I did see one Sicilian result that looked very similar to the old, more accurate (but still Euro-inflated) Ashkenazi results.
    I hear LivingDNA stopped accepting uploads.

Guessing their algorithm must have lumped a good amount of MENA into S European Mediterranean classifications. I submitted other company data to them eons ago for analysis to see if it would come out wildly different but there has really not been much movement on their site with either updates or catching up to long ago promised features.
    What do you get on Eurogenes K13?

    It's just showing me the names of my ancestors from the family tree I uploaded, completely useless for me.

    Same here, except from one branch through which I'm related to half of Brooklyn, but I already knew that.

    A girl I know who is half Algerian Jewish tested with AncestryDNA.
    Her Algerian Jewish half came up 9% Middle East 1% Iberian 40% Italian.
    Like yourself she scored 0% from North African catergory which is pretty ridiculous.
    AncestryDNA seem to have a problem in General post update as they have many Italians both northern,Central & Southern being now told they are half French sometimes fully French

    Post-update Ancestry.com has a very odd Italy region, very broad. I would estimate about 60-70% of my cousin matches from the Aegean islands are now majority "Italian" according to Ancestry. The "Italy" region seems to be more of a large Central/Eastern Mediterranean continuum catch-all region. I am not surprised Jewish populations are being swept up into the "Italy" catagory for this reason.

    Their Italian reference must be South Italian. Ancestrydna is nearly equal to Myheritage in ancestry representation.

    And their British category stretches to North Italy.

    My brother got 9% British, 8% French and 5 % German and 3% Italian for his Italian ancestry.
