    Interpreting my mom's results? (Bengali Brahmin)

    My mom just got her results back so I plugged them through harrappaworld and noticed a few differences compared to mine.

    Hers:
    S-Indian 45.45 Pct
    Baloch 32.28 Pct
    Caucasian 4.73 Pct
    NE-Euro 8.45 Pct
    SE-Asian 2.28 Pct
    Siberian -
    NE-Asian 0.77 Pct
    Papuan 0.77 Pct
    American 1.24 Pct
    Beringian 1.85 Pct
    Mediterranean 1.56 Pct
    SW-Asian 0.09 Pct
    San -
    E-African -
    Pygmy -
    W-African 0.53 Pct

    Mine:
    S-Indian 45.72 Pct
    Baloch 30.36 Pct
    Caucasian 3.82 Pct
    NE-Euro 10.25 Pct
    SE-Asian 0.95 Pct
    Siberian 1.08 Pct
    NE-Asian 0.84 Pct
    Papuan 1.32 Pct
    American 0.21 Pct
    Beringian 0.43 Pct
    Mediterranean 4.40 Pct
    SW-Asian -
    San 0.37 Pct
    E-African -
    Pygmy 0.25 Pct
    W-African -

    Her Caucasian seems to be higher, but I think the most interesting difference lies in the different amounts of Mediterranean. I have 3 times as much as my mom which means my dad might have something like 6%-7% Mediterranean which seems kind of high. Does this seem about normal for Bengali Brahmin or could there be some kind of outside ancestry on my dad's side?

    Can you send me her gedmatch kit(privately if you wish)? I will include her in the next Gedmatch PCA run. Also all her gedmatch scores will be added to the spreadsheet.

    Could Mediterranean represent some Middle Eastern Ancestry or just be remnant DNA? Assuming my dad is at least 6% Mediterranean that seems a little high.

    So I recently found out that on these calculators it isn't necessarily correct that full siblings score exactly the same percentages. Your Med score does not necessarily have to be an average of your mom's and your dad's.

    Yeah, there is always variation between siblings because only 50% of DNA is shared between them. However, considering my mom has so little Med, he would have to have at least a little more than me. If we go more conservative and give him only 0.6% higher than me, which is 5%, it still seems to be a little elevated.

    Don't siblings share 100% of ancestry? I mean, if the father is 100% East Asian and the mother is 100% South Asian, all kids will be 50-50 East and South Asian. Now, within those 50% each, there could be internal variations, but ALL siblings would still be 50% East and 50% South Asians. Ignore my ignorance if that is not the case. Please educate me if that is the case.

    Yeah, they have the same ancestry, but only 50% of their DNA is completely identical which means the parents DNA recombined in a different way for the other 50% in each sibling. So this causes some variation in results. Genealogically they'd be 50% each, but genetically one might be 47-53, while the other is 51-49. There's almost never significant variation but there is usually a little.

    Yep. Inheritance is funky and random. It's actually possible to score higher Mediterranean than both your parents if you happen to just inherit significantly more from that specific portion of both their genomes. In this specific case for FrostAssassin0701, it's likely his father is slightly higher Mediterranean than him but you never know. It's possible that he is slightly less.

    What's the story on your mtdna? That looks to be middle eastern?
