    Is the Balkan I get on Myheritage indicative of Romani when all my other ancestries are Western Euro? All evidence seems to suggest that my great-great grandmother was at least half-Romani (the other half probably being Irish Traveller, but that's for another day).

    Hard to say when dealing with such minor %'s but it could be a part. I would think you would see South Asian before you would see Balkan. The majority of My Heritage Romani results are like 40% South Asian, 10% West or Central Asian and 40% Greek, Balkan or the likes

I don't know much about genealogy so this is mostly foreign to me, so I am trying to research what it all means haha, if anyone can provide any guidance as to what this means it would be greatly appreciated. See below:

    P.S. I tried a few different methods to insert the actual images into the forum but I kept getting a "not allowed to post links" error message. My results were as follows:

    K13
    North Atlantic: 7.83%
    Baltic: 11.62%
    West_Med: 9.83%
    West_Asian: 18.45%
    East_Med: 20.64%
    Red_Sea: 4.21%
    South_Asian: 22.25%
    East_Asian: 3.61%
    Siberian: 0.08%
    Oceanian: 1.29%
    Northeast_African: 0.19%

    K15
    North_Sea: 5.15%
    Atlantic: 6.33%
    Baltic: 8.41%
    Eastern_Euro: 5.47%
    West_Med: 7.42%
    West_Asian: 15.62%
    East_Med: 19.65%
    Red_Sea: 4.22%
    South_Asian: 23.22%
    Southeast_Asian: 3.23%
    Oceanian: 1.16%
    Northeast_African: 0.12%

    Again, I am not entirely sure what these results mean and any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Best thing to do is look at your DNA matches on GEDmatch and see how many of them are Romani aswell, its very easy to tell from there. But from the looks of your DNA and where you were born I am almost completely certain you are Romani.

    Yep your results run the gamut of the Romani spectrum. Have you looked for matches on 23 and me, ancestry, or my heritage? It would be riveting if your matches included people from modern day India or the middle east. My son has a friend who is part Romani and received results in proportions similar to yours.
