What do they have to do with brown, racially South Asian people who are considered South Asian everywhere? And why did they give ancient European origins for non-Europeans?
    You are right in pointing out to this error. Central Asia is not India/Pakistan but countries like Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan etc. . Afghanistan is not so central Asian though as most of its population is either pakthun or farsi speakers with a minority central Asian people living in the north of Afghanistan.

    Definition of central asia from encyclopedia Britannica :

    Central Asia, central region of Asia, extending from the Caspian Sea in the west to the border of western China in the east. It is bounded on the north by Russia and on the south by Iran, Afghanistan, and China. The region consists of the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Turkmenistan

    I think NW South Asia is also a wrong generalization. Not everyone in NW South Asia has the same ancestry. Some Punjabis are more similar to some South Indians than to other Punjabis. I think they should just divide the South Asia category into ANI and ASI.

    I agree. I think Afghanistan and west Pakistan can be considered South-Central Asia (ie transitional between south and central Asia). Eastern Pakistan and North India (except maybe Kashmir) is just south Asia, they are too south Asian to be considered transitional.

    MODERATOR NOTE: I am going to rename and sticky this thread. This will be the official curation thread of all FTDNA results. DO NOT start a new thread for individual results for any company. I will be making a similar sticky thread for 23andme, AncestryDNA, and LivingDNA.
    Additionally, I will be making a spreadsheet for each respective company so that we have a subforum-wide curation for each company.

    If you have a request for another company, let me know. I will make a sticky.

    Yeah, I need to tidy up the forum. It's driving me nuts. We have lots of information but it's scattered all over. We make way too many redundant threads.
    I am also going to make a Haplogroup sticky thread.

    Me and poi get 7% and 8% SE Europe, respectively. Dunno what's up with that but the only similarity I see with poi is me having a lot of maternal ancestors from UP (more westward before that) while he's Nepali Brahmin.
