    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:

    West_Asian: 18.45%

    K15

    Baltic: 8.41%

    Oceanian: 1.16%
    Northeast_African: 0.12%

    Again, I am not entirely sure what these results mean and any help would be greatly appreciated!
    OK, these results are what we're looking for, and you seem pretty pure Roma, to be honest... But I suppose there's always a possibility that a largely Indian child may have ended up in Romania... ?!?!?

    If you go to GEDMatch on the MDLP and PuntDNAL calculators, they'll have buttons for the "Oracles" and, as MR G noted, will give you your estimated population matches. The MDLPs and PuntDNAL have Romany samples, so that should be of assistance.

    There will also be a button for the spreadsheets, where the results for the sample populations are listed, so you can 'manually' compare your results to specific ethnic groups.

    Generally the advice to people who aren't sure of Romany ancestry is to check your segment matches with other Romany kit #s...and see if there's triangulation.

    Wow thatís quite similar! Does your friend have olive or pale skin? I have olive skin and green eyes. My birth surname is ďrostasĒ which I have always believed has Romanian / Hungarian origin.

    So I have been browsing around with Oracle for a few days, but I am a little confused about the distances?

    For Example, I searched for Romani under puntDNAL K15 and came out with

    Single Population Sharing

    1. Romani - 7.94
    2. Pashtun - 18.45
    3. Tadjik - 20.84
    ... and so on

    Mixed Mode Population Sharing:

    1. 87.3% Romani, 12.7% Chuvash , Distance = 4.58
    2. 85.1% Romani, 14.9% Bashkir, Distance = 4.59

    However, I also ran MDLP K23 Oracle and got these results:

    Single Population Sharing:
    1. Roma_Slovenian, Distance = 8.81
    2. Roma_Bulgarian, Distance = 10.98
    3. Roma, Distance = 13.54

    The next few entries are all Roma mixed with something else and a distance of around 25

    Mixed Mode Population Sharing:

    1. 75.2% Turk_Adana , Distance = 3.38

    The next 20 entries or so all include Turk Adana / Roma Slovenian / and Turk Kayersi around 75% and either Santhal, Paniya, Malayan etc. around 25-27%, distance ranges from 3.38 to 4.13.

    I am a little confused as to what the distance is determining and how come many of the entries vary so greatly?

    The higher the number the greater the genetic distance. So you happen to match the Romani population from that calculator the most. The mixed mode combines different reference populations to determine a "best fit" of mixed ancestry in respect to your own.

    I'm happy enough when one or two populations in Oracles are accurate, so I don't worry too much about distances... For myself and some of my relatives, the most accurate Oracle estimations have much farther distances than the more ridiculous ones!

    Did you have any suspicion of being Romani before the DNA test?

    Haha yeah , thatís the only problem I have with all of this. Since I was adopted when I was a baby I know absolutely nothing about my biological family, all I know is I was born in Romania , but I could be anything which is why I did all this in the first place .

    I have always wondered if I were Romani based on my appearance, I have somewhat ambiguous ethnicity , brown hair , green eyes , 5í10 , darker olive skin , I get mistaken for being Armenian / middle eastern / Indian all the time, and also Hispanic which is odd. All I really know about my biological family is the city we were from and surname , birth mother had 14 children ( my twin brother and I are 13&14). Iíve had a lot of people ( primarily from India & Europe ask me if I am Romani )

    Shelzyy,
    You might consider a MyHeritage test. There seem to be many Romani on there, and while it can be argued if the MyHeritage estimate is accurate or not, its been proven that it s a good resource for people looking for Romani heritage.
