    Baltic DNA

    Anybody have a screenshot of a partial or full baltic result? I'm very interested to see one, mainly because I received a huge amount of Baltic in the update despite having any DNA from that region as far I know. Thanks!

    My mother's mother was born in Valmiera, modern Latvia, in the late 19th Century, so Mum was 50% Baltic and 50% SE English.

    This is Mum's latest Ancestry estimate:

    Scottish 37.5%
    English 25.0%
    Latvian 25.0%
    Cornish 12.5%

    Wow, mainly all Baltic with a bit of easterneuro, that’s what I’m paying attention to. I saw a 1/4 Lithuanian result on here, and it was near 25% Baltic. So to me it appears that Balts don’t get much overlap with eastern euro but eastern euros get more of an overlap with balts? I’m wondering wether my results are consistently higher Baltic than Eastern Europe because I am part. My dad never found out who his father was and based on the time he very could’ve been Lithuanian, since there were lots of immigrants from that area. Is it possible that I’m part Lithuanian (or maybe even Latvian or Estonian)? I’m not sure though, and nothing really gives hints whether he was or not because East Slavic dna and Baltic dna is so messed up through genetic testing.

    I can't help with Baltic printout but your above statement might be somewhat accurate. I got 20%+ East Euro on Family Tree, but 92% Scandivanian (5% Finnish then NW/Germanic Euro on Ancestry). Paper trail is 100% Scandivania. Ancestry has many more Scandivanian references so that one was more accurate. But on GEDmatch tools without North Swede or Sami references I get a lot of Lithuanian, Estonian, Mordovian, upper Volga, Belarusian, Russia central and other Ural regions. There is a lot of overlap here. For my part, it is the mesolithic Swede (pre-farmer DNA of northern Sweden) and Swede Sami. If I add the kit # for the Sami reference that shows Lithuanian, Mordovian, Moksha, Tatar, Chuvash, Selkup...

    Probably there was not a reference for your area of Russia and closest approximation was Baltic. If your paper trail is quite confidently what you say, this is a reasonable misread of DNA I'd say... Baltics matching for cetrain areas of Russia or at least approximating a portion of your DNA.

    My paper trial for my mothers side is 100% accurate my paper trial for my fathers side is partly done and the rest are theories definitely, that’s why I’m constantly updating my signature lmao. From my mother I am: 18.75% Russian, 12.5% Belarusian, 12.5% Jewish, and 6.25% Kazakh. The Russians are from West-Central, Rayzan Russia so its not west enough where the whole category is affected but it’s west enough that it could have some impact. I noticed on ancestry that Belarus is completely encompassed by the Baltic’s so that concerned me a bit in making judgements. I don’t know who my paternal grandfather is nevermind his paper trial, that’s a huge mess of its own. He could have a Baltic surname, he maybe could not, there’s just so many ways his surname was spelt and so many different theories about his ethnicity that I have created. I try to look towards genetic testing but it doesn’t help for much.

    1/16 Kazakh? So your mother must be 1/8. Have you had her tested? I'd like to see the results of such a mixture - Russian/Belarusian, Jewish, Kazakh.
