    Asian ancestry proof?

    Hello, just wondering if all this info that I gathered from different vendors is actually a proof for some small Asiatic ancestry?

    yourdnaportal: EDAR "People with your genotype have one copy of this allele." (Gene: EDAR rs3827760CT)

    -Ftdna: 1% South America; 2% Finland

    -Geneplaza: 0.8% Oceanian (Papuan, Australian; 0.6% Polar (Aleutians, Escimo)

    -MyHeritage: 1.6% Oceanian (Melanesian); 3.9% Finnish

    -Dna.Land: 5.2% Finnish

    -Ancestry: 1% Finland

    -WeGene: 0.53% Finnish; 0.59% Oceanian (Papuan)

    -Dna Tribes: 1.7% Polynesian / Samoa

    nMonte: 1.4% - 0.2% bits and pieces dubbed - Vepsi, Kareli, Mordva/Moksha, Komi, Nenets

    Finland is not Asia. And 2-3% Finnish on those tests doesn't mean much, in my opinion.

    On Gedmatch I always get bits of Oceanian, Siberian, Arctic, etc. Between 0.5-1%

    And regarding Finland - probably Finland is not Asian on its own, but in some vendors I presume that it serves as a proxy to various Asian related connections. I've seen on some autosomal test Finns coming up as 98% Finland and 1-2% of the abovementioned ethnicities.

    And about that Edar gene - is it really that much of a specialty reserved only for East Asians?

    I would trust edar gene indeed. Although 1~2 scores are noise most of time, if you get them insistently perhaps this can point out a distant central asian ancestry. Which region are you from?

    I would never trust small percentages from a single test but since these exotic elements are present in each test taken so far, then there is probably something. Of course, it's almost nothing but looks interesting for me.

    Post Eurogenes, Dodecad, MDLP, punt, etc. and we will see.

    Here's one SNP that you can test. It has a 99% chance to not occur in Europeans, where it will stay at its ancestral position (CC/AA). For East Asians, this SNP is derived (TT/GG).
    I have both variants at TT for example and I get consistent East Asian levels like you do.

    What I am referring to is the SNP that causes light skin in East Asians, rs1800414.
