# Thread: I wonder whether there's a way for estimating nMonte for an untested parent

1. ## I wonder whether there's a way for estimating nMonte for an untested parent

I used my modern results for the 0-1000 BCE calculator. I tried a simple method of doubling my total to get a combined parental total then subtracting the tested parent to get a total for the untested parent.

3. The user DMXX has the ability to calculate your missing parents coordinates based on your own and your one tested parent coordinates/positions on the Global 25. You might want to get in touch with him and see what he can do for you.

5. Very interesting topic!

6. The reason you get greater than 100% is because you left out the samples that were negative. Your dad has English_Cornwall 10%, you have English_Cornwall 1%, so you gave 0% to your mother instead of -9%. In other words, this method cannot work.

What you should try is take the PCA coordinates, P1 to P25 for you and your dad, and calculate a new set of coordinates for your mother for P1 to P25 so that you are the average of both. [YOU] x 2-[DAD] for P1 to P25. Then run this calculated set on the modern samples.

7. I can see your point about my method. I'm not so sure about your method , but that may only be because I'm a dunce in such matters .

Here are the unscaled.

I tried doing my mother's scaled but gave up as i got stumped when there was 2 minuses ie -0.001094 for me x2 and -0.001276 for my dad and it gave a plus number.

I'm not sure the Finnish or Saami makes much sense . Could it be real or revealing a flaw with trying to estimate for an untested parent?

13. My guess is your mother is Scottish, she has the same pattern of admixture components as other Scottish samples in G25.

15. As a contrast the unscaled coordinates for custom calculators and webrunner are picking up almost no Finnish/Saami also using 1000/500 default.

However the 1000 BCE calculator pen=0

Scaled SOUTH-SIBERIAN 6.6
Unscaled SOUTH-SIBERIAN 10.4

I've mentioned South Siberian but I'm not sure it's relevant.

Perhaps some bright spark could pick the bones out of all this. Maybe it says something about estimating for an untested parent or maybe it doesn't.
