    How reliable is My true ancestry?

    So I found about this website via social media but I'm unsure of its reliability.


    Is the ancient ancestry timelapse map really trustable? Because according to that map, I have Crusader ancestry lmao

    It shows even small matches which might not be immediate ancestor

    It just creates a PCA of your rawDNA relative to archeological samples. I'm sure as their database grows larger they will have a better range of samples. Also, they seem to add new features relatively often. If nothing else it's a fun novelty.

    The PCA results often look rather strange though.

    This is true, I've run multiple kits on there and my results vary. Although I get these similar sorts of autosomal shifts through calcs on GEDmatch as well.

    I found an absolute connection with MyTrueAncestry and example the K36 Ancient's Oracle.

    In my case top 3 matches: Scythian, Visigoth, Gallic.
    K36 top 3: Hungarian (medieval), Scythian, Visigoth

    They will increase their database. Example my first MyTrueAncestry result include Frank as second top match. But after an update Visigoth proved to be stronger.
    I always like to get advice/opinion on my results. Hidden Content

    I feel that it is very reliable, I'm 40% Norweigan and my #1 group here is Norweigan Vikings so. I'm 20% Irish and Celts is my #2 group

    You mean the free calculator they're using is reliable.

    Their IBD results are not reliable. Even a child should be able to work that out.

    I hope you didn't pay for your test.

    No you didn't. Don't be naive.
