    How would you rate MyGenomeBox? (+ post your results)

    these are my results on the test:

    35.75%
    Africa

    15.43%
    South
    Europe

    14.89%
    West
    Europe

    12.36%
    North
    Europe

    11.46%
    East
    Europe

    3.74%
    East
    Asia

    3.07%
    South
    America

    2.23%
    Asia

    1.07%
    North
    America




    now, the test is free. you get a digital currency of 10$ eu or dollar whatever that u can use to buy the ancestry test, u wait only a few min like 10 or so or a bit more and ull have ur results.


    IMO I think the results are good if you look at it in a BROAD perspective, now if we are talking about it's specifics and narrowing down ethnicities then it sucks ass. it's a very generalized broad test, it just tells you what percentages u have from each continent or region and it doesn't go much in depth at all.


    personally, my "East Asia" and "Asia" percentages aren't arab or east Asian at all but rather part of my Ethiopian or berber ethnicity.




    post yours aswell haha ill check them out

    personally, I never expected this high African on this test but it's probably because this test actually picks up well on my berber/Ethiopian ancestry maybe, which is why I score elevated amounts of African.


    I see you also score like roughly 2.5% African or so XD could be possible berber ancestry? since your name is "Canarioguanche" eitherway interesting results dude

    Yeah I can see why haha, for "Africa" alone they include the WHOLE continent of Africa, including Madagascar, that's insane tbh. But it managed to do well for me, generally "broad estimates" are the only estimates that tend to be more logical for me, like K9, K10, and K6-K7 results etc are always best for me.


    eitherway, personally I think its pretty bad at estimating European ancestry.. It gave me 15% south Europe while I am MAX 1% Iberian if at all, ancestryDNA gave me 1% Iberian and even that is basically nothing lol

    Yeah I agree on that one. There's no way I am more than 6% Asian XD every test consistently shows me to be either 2% or 4% Asian total. African is also fairly high, higher than any other test I've taken but that's probably because this test both includes east, and north Africa. which could mean combined it is 36% African, with a excess of Berber which probably got sucked into my Asia and East asia percentages.

    which means I am probably somewhere in the range of 41% African or something lol, not 41% SSA but 41% broadly African seems accurate, as my family is quite mixed at that haha. The one looks Nigerian, the other looks Eritrean/Afro-Arab. Another looks maghrebi/SSA, it's all mixed lol

    Woooow XD you really do have a very interesting mix, damn XD I wish I was also part Madagascar"ian"? seems like a beautiful island lmao.

    I think this test possibly overestimates Asian ancestry by a little bit. I got 3.74% east Asian with no known Asian ancestry, not even minor east Asian ancestry lol, idk how common that would be in a mix like mine. so I figured its part of my African.


    Eitherway wow, lol. You truly are a mix XD ive never seen someone with a background like yours so it's pretty damn interesting lol.


    I myself am also quite mixed XD I am half afro-Caribbean and half American.


    Now to put it this way, my European side is mixed British, Irish, Scottish, German, and French.

    My African side is pred. Nigerian/Benin-togoan, Oromo Ethiopian/Moroccan, and also Ghanaian. Maybe there's some East Bantu in there too lol who knows, like from Uganda.

    ontop of that im also 3% Amerindian so yeah XD the mixed struggles



    eitherway, what ethnicity do you feel most connected to? ur African side or ur European side (since ur pred. European) XD and also what calculator on gedmatch and what tests do u find most accurate?

    I'd say the only thing that looks inflated for us is the Americas. We usually get a bit but nowhere near that much. I grew up with my mum's side of the family so I'm closer to the Mauritian/English side rather than the English/Dutch side, I only had my Mauritian grandfather growing up so I'm very close to that side. Most of our African matches are from Uganda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, South Africa. Our Malagasy matches tend to be 60-70% Southeast Asian, 20-30% African and 10% South Asian. Mauritians are very mixed due to slavery and indentured labour, all our non-European is via Mauritius.
