    My Heritage gave me nearly 10% East Europe and neither Ancestry nor 23andMe has Eastern Europe in my results. My Heritage also gave me 0% Scandinavian while Ancestry gave me 8% and 23andMe ~5%. I used my 23andMe raw data and uploaded to My Heritage. I would say it's not very good. In addition, I get 0% non-British Isles NW Europe on My Heritage but nearly 22% German on 23andMe South Asian beta and 7% Germanic Europe on Ancestry (more German could be lumped into my 62% England/Wales/NW Europe result). I can trace relatives to Germany in my tree from the 1820s.

    It's nothing new for MyHeritage to confuse Levantine people with their Jewish categories. Probably due to shared ancestry that fits better than their broadly Middle Eastern category (since Jews have Levantine roots specifically). Either way MyHeritage isn't exactly the best company for ethnicity estimation, to say the least.

    This kind of weird estimations are present not only on MyHeritage.There are some Caucasian Jews get 90-100%(!) Asia Minor on MyOrigins.I wonder who are reference populations to West Asia and Asia Minor?
