    Egyptian/Sudan/Austrian mix - My heritage DNA test result

    Hello all!


    My father was nubian/egypt/saudi my mum is austrian.

    I have some questions about the results:

    1.) My fathers father was from El Qusir, his grandfather was from Kassala/sudan. His mother egyptian/saudi arabian. But why it shows Maasai and Somali?
    I asked my cousin in egyot, she told me we have some somali relatives, which we never saw personally, and not very close related.
    The only thing the family knows about the heritage is Sudan and Saudi arabia.

    2.) I just wonder why so less of percentage of every ethnicity ive got.

    3.) Why does it say: 10.8% Sephardic Jewish - North African AND 10.5% North African. Why is the dash between jewish and north african, and then again separate north african.

    Full result:
    Maasai 13.8% Somali 10.8% Sephardic Jewish - North African 10.5% North African 9.6% West African 3.3% English 12.2% Irish, Scottish, and Welsh 7.3% East Europe 11.7% Italian 4.8% Middle Eastern 8.3% South Asian 5.2% Japanese and Korean 1.6% Melanesian 0.9%

    My heritage page:
    https://www.myheritage.com/dna/ethnicity/594989631

    Maybe there is someone who can help me finding out my exact haplogroup.

    Id appreciate some information,
    Thanks!

    Ps.:
    It would be interesting what ethnicity you would give my father by the look

    Maasai and Somali are two populations that are close to Sudanese. As far as I'm aware, Myheritage does not have a Sudanese sample. As for the Sephardic Jewish, it could be real but more likely it shows up because Egyptians are skewed more towards the Middle East. If his mother was partially Saudi that skews him even further east.

    I think your father just looks like a black East African.

    Your father looks like someone from the Nile Valley.If I saw him in person I would easily be able to tell that he was Nubian or Sudanese Arab.

    You should post your gedmatch results with Oracle's to get more clarity.I suggest Eurogenes K13/K15 and the K3 calculator to see how much SSA and West Eurasian ancestry you carry.

    The "North African" isn't separate - the reference are Jews from North Africa.

    Since you're female (according to your profile), you don't have a Y chromosome in your DNA. Since Y chromosomes are generally passed from father to son, you would need to test somebody with your fathers Y chromosome, i.e. your father, brother, paternal grandfather, paternal uncle, paternal uncles son etc.
