    my origins 3.0 is really bad

    as i expected they took moders Nationalities instead of old Components
    they lumped south arabia and sun saharan africa as ethiopia
    and lumped south europe and the middle east as north levant
    and of course every middle easterner has mizrahi jewish ancestry
    ridiculous
    2.0
    east middle east 73
    west middle east 8
    north africa 4
    central asia 5
    africa 7
    europe 3
    now


    arabia 71
    north levant 8
    maghrib and egypt 4
    bedoin 3 (they made a whole population out of 200000 people and didnít put egypt as itís own category smh)

    I realized my AncestryDNA upload and my actual FTDNA swab are slightly different. First is FTDNA swab. Second is ancestry upload. I find it odd that Central European has such a huge area of coverage. Seems a bit behind the times.

    Yes as I posted on another thread I’m American with the vast majority of my ancestry from England and Scotland. I just got 0% in my new estimate from FTDNA. I have literally hundreds of ancestors from England and Scotland. What a joke this update is. Every other major company lists Great Britain as my main category as they should. So I agree horribly bad.

    I'm trying to get my head around how a company with experts in the field can produce such bad results.

    My old report was bad as well it listed my British isles at 38% when it should be like 80% according to paper trail. I would question my family tree but Ancestry, Living DNA and 23 and me all give me high English and Scottish percentages. This new estimate gives me 37% Irish, 28% Scandinavian and 23% Central European. I do have some German ancestry but they all came over in the 1700s and intermarried into English and Scottish lines so that at this point it shouldnít be much more than 5-10 percent of my ancestry. My Irish is also small and confined to mostly Donegal in Northern Ireland. Itís surnames like Montgomery and mcclelland that are probably Scottish in reality. What I do have is hundreds of ancestors from England and Scotland but FTDNA gives me 0% for its new Great Britain category. I guess my DNA is a tough one for them for some reason.

    It's bad for a lot of people, I think.

    It's actually okay for me and my sister, as I posted in the other thread, but if my parents hadn't actually taken the FTDNA test, and my dad didn't have a bunch of Y results, I would have thought they mixed them up or I did when uploading them. My dad is mostly English and Welsh (with only quite small percentages of other things, like 6% French, 3% Dutch -- I incorrectly said Danish in the other thread), and no Scandinavian but he got 34% British Isles and lots of Scandinavian and Central Europe. My mom is about a quarter each German and Swedish, and got 97% British Isles.
