    LivingDNA is not good for north Africans.

    Well if you're N. African don't spend your money on livingDNA, I uploaded my raw DNA and the results are wrong just like that cheap 5 dollar geneplaza calculator.

    Although I think a decent test should be able to (mostly) differentiate Iberia from North Africa, it is interesting nonetheless to see examples of the genetic overlap between these two areas.
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English (possibly containing some Welsh ancestry) 31.25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, Eastern German 12.5%, Eastern European (Likely Polish possibly including Romanian) 12.5%, French 7.81%, Native American (Saulteaux and Assiniboine) 2.34%, and Colonial American, 3.125%, which cannot be traced with certainty. With certainty, there is Dutch (at least 1.36%) and some English.

    I am spanish and have no north african in either 23andMe or Living DNA. So either the OP is half spanish or Living DNA is wrong.
