    Yeah it wouldn't be as bad if I had just known from the start, but I had many reasons to believe otherwise. Sometimes I want to tell my dad the truth about his ancestry.

    I'd still take this calc with a decent sized grain of salt. It doesn't pick up ancestries that repeatedly show up on other calcs for me at least.

    @Censored, dont take it personally man its not just you

    Its very socio-political in nature, all South Asians have some level of identity issues, especially South Asian Muslims for various historical and political reasons

    Soon Hindi-belt North Indians will be feeling the identity pain too after Rakhigarhi

    Dravidians like me have never known what we are, have no written history lol

    Yeah, I'm well aware of it. I don't want to turn into that "stereotype" of the Indian who thinks they are/wants to be something they're not, but I really felt I had a much stronger justification for believing there was some kind of possible mix in my ancestry than the vast majority of Indians who believe the same thing. I've seen people claiming really bizarre and quite frankly impossible things like Hindus saying they are part Persian or shit like that and thought that if anything, I would be the one having it given my dad's family being Hyderabadi Muslims, and many of his extended family displaying obvious Afghan or west Asian admixture.

    But families are really messy, and I guess my dad's own line is just South Indian, even if more distant relatives are mixed with something exotic.

    And hey, at least you Hindus know your caste lol. I still have to go through the painstaking process of figuring out what my parents must have been before converting.

    Technically we're part Iranians, ancient Iranians tbh. Iran N is big chunk of our ancestry afterall lol. Yea it's hard for south asian Muslims to find out their real heritage, especially if they converted long time ago. Syed claiming communities get the hardest hits since all of them have family tree connecting to founder of Islam I believe, with rest of records forgotten.

    You do show very minor Levant farmer like mix in nmonte, so hey, there is your link. It's very small but it still backs up the family claim of somewhat exotic ancestry.

    I've asked a lot of questions about my own paternal side over the years from my relatives. Since I was not told much about it, because of all the moving my grandfather and his family did. I still score like an outlier for a Punjabi Tarkhan based on the samples we've, so hey we all got some mystery mix somewhere.

    I'll make this the official thread for myHeritageDNA and make that spreadsheet public. At some point LOL.

    I'd still say Persian is a far cry from any kind of ancient Iranian whether speaking of Iranian N farmers or Indo-Iranians.

    Someone did an nMonte run using Saidu Sharif, Paniya, and Velamas and got a fit of 1.6 for me. On top of that I recently tried running nMonte with Iyers and Paniya to see which modern pops could approximate my ancestry closest, and got a fit of 1.45. In both scenarios adding a West Asian pop. only made the fit worse.

    I remember at one point you said that it seemed that one side of my family seemed upper caste and the other tribal-like; I am increasingly partial to that theory after everything I have seen so far.

    It's your steppe in comparison to other neighbouring communities that makes me wonder if you've some Brahmin like mix or ancestry from one side. Checking your family members or even Grandparents will solve it.
