    Questions about my Geno 2.0 results

    First post, so hello everybody!

    My girlfriend and myself just both took a DNA-test from Geno 2.0 and I am quite surprised by the results.

    These are my results, my father was Austrian and my mother is from Switzerland:

    46% Scandinavia
    30% Southern Europe
    15% British Isles
    6% Jewish Diaspora
    3% Asia Minor

    My girlfriend's parents are both from Switzerland and these are her results:

    74% Western/Central Europe
    16% Scandinavia
    4% Asia Minor
    4% Southern Europe

    I am curious because I always thought Swiss and Austrian people are more or less the same. But as you can see I have zero Western/Central Europe and she has zero British Isles on the other hand, so I wonder if these regional categories are precise. Second issue I have is that all my great-grandparents came from rural parts of Austria/Switzerland and were deeply Catholic, I am not aware of any Jewish ancestors but still have 6% Ashkenazi in me.

    Anyone with historical insight able to explain this? Thanks in advance.

    Hi! And thank you for sharing results.
    I would recommend both of you to upload go gedmatch.com.
    The 46% Scandinavian sound a bit high. But These companies often gives high Scandinavian for some reason. The "jewish" admixture could be some north italian.

    Ok, thanks for the answer!

    I will check this site out, do you know in what format I have to provide the DNA and if have to contact Geno 2.0 for raw data?

    I am also surprised by the 15% British Isles since I definitively have no ancestors from this region.
