    Wonder where the southern usa connection is coming from? We have no known connection to there.
    I get that as well. Not really ancestral but more diaspora like some of the other GCs.

    I really would not take these traces too seriously. I get 2.8% Ashkenazi and daughter gets this.

    Irish, Scottish, and Welsh
    89.5%
    Ireland
    England and Ireland
    Eastern Ireland and England
    USA (New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago) and Australia
    East European
    7.6%
    Greek and South Italian
    1.8%
    ASIA
    West Asian
    1.1%

    MyHeritage is in serious need of an update as all the companies previously gave people like me trace amounts that are now gone. MyHeritage hasn't updated since it started. If you've been into genetics for as long as I have you would know a lot of these trace ancestries are not accurate. When I first got my dna done I was fascinated by the Amerindian I got in Gedmatch which I also got on FTDNA and my brother got on 23&Me. With updates both myself and brother no longer get this. Trace amounts come and go. Paper trail is the way to go especially if you have long term ancestry in a particular region.

    So far, the update failed to live up to the hype MyHeritage generated. The ethnicity estimates are way off for me (confusing Ashkenazi and Southern Italian/Greek) and the genetic groups are very vague and often inaccurate.

     





    I'm getting the same confidence level for the Western European and Eastern European Ashkenazi groups, very disappointing since I happen to know that all of my Jewish ancestors lived in Belarus/Ukraine for the past 300 years or so.

     





    The Eastern European genetic groups are even worse. What the hell is the difference between "East Europeans in Ukraine and some in Russia and Belarus" and "East Europeans in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Latvia and in Lithuania"? I think there's even a genetic group that includes people with ancestry from the Baltics and Chuvashia, just absurd.

    True to a point, but if you get matches with that ancestry then that adds more weight to it. Also one might have a haplogroup that is also associated with a particular group. So if either one of these criteria are met along with it pretty much showing up across tests then I would say this represents some distant ancestry that got diluted down.

In her split view it shows that she got all of her WANA from me despite mine being basically nonexistent with the update. Otherwise it's been there for me across all tests, except now for this company.

    With that said I have to say I'm actually pretty impressed with My Heritage. I think between using FTDNA and 23andme, and then Ancestry for my aunt this website wins hands down in being user friendly, easy to navigate, and breaking down one's matches to get a good handle on how they are connected. I was also pleasantly surprised to find several matches that I haven't seen before. My top match is to a first cousin once removed-2nd cousin. His surname is the same as my paternal grandmother's maiden name! So I am super excited to reach out to him and see if will or has already Y DNA tested. Will be very interesting to see as this line is Rusyn from eastern Slovakia.

    Now to these ancestry results. They are a little strange, but not far off the mark. I do think the North and West European is way too inflated, and with the Balkan being way more than 23andme and not assigning me Albania or Greece, but Romania instead is weird. I score no Italian! 23andme amped my Italian up to 23.5% with their update and pretty much took all my WANA away.

    Anyhow here is the results.
    North and West European
    43.9%
    Northern Switzerland, Southern Germany, Eastern France and Western Austria
    Balkan
    33.7%
    Romania
    East European
    20.2%
    Ashkenazi Jewish
    2.2%
    ADDITIONAL GENETIC GROUPS
    Southern Wales and Southern and Western England
    Lithuania and Poland

    Western and Central England and Southeastern Wales
    Slovakia and Hungary
    Western Puerto Rico
    Albania
    Southern Italy and Poland

    Is your 23&me upload v3?

    Yes that would add more weight but many people are chasing trace results which aren't actual ancestry. Things like Baltic are very common in trace amounts and seem to appear in people's results all over Europe. Anyway a lot of people can attest to the fact that results have changed a lot over recent years. On FTDNA both myself and brother had significant Southeast European percentages i.e. me (9%) and he got (11%). Last update it all went. I knew it was incorrect as it wasn't in our results when we first tested with FTDNA and I know my ancestry well. Now we have both gained trace amounts from other areas.

    23andme gives me 99.5% Ashkenazi with traces of Italian and Egyptian. DNA land gives me 88% Ashkenazi with the rest mostly South-West European and Arabian. GEDMatch K13 pretty much falls in line with Ashkenazi, slightly North Atlantic + West Med + East Med. shifted.
    I'll try to get my dad (the Austrian side) to take a test once he gets here to the US. He's in Israel, they don't do genetic tests there and the airport is closed.

    Sounds good. The more testing the better. The MH results could simply be overlap due to similarity between the Ashkenazi and Sephardic reference pops, but like you said, it does seem a bit high. 23andme is relatively reliable, but they could conceivably misread minor Sephardic ancestry as Ashkenazi. DNA.land is pretty useless.

    You might want to try uploading to FTDNA if you haven't. IMO They're not as good for Sephardim as they used to be, but they seem to be pretty accurate for Ashkenazim, so if you get a considerable non-Ashkenazi percentage it could be a useful clue.

    Genetic groups for my mother








    I do not find it very accurate, none of these group is accurate, it can be only accurate at country level.

    Russia, Ukraine, Belarus is basically Western Russians group, it is not accurate, we have Northern Russian ancestry and Russian Cossack ancestry, but not from Western Russia, like from Moscow, Pskov, Orel.

    Poland and Germany group is strange, since Poland and Germany in same group, when Poles and Germans are mostly genetically different. Additionally there are German surnames in Common Surnames of this genetic groups, which does not make any sense.

    Western Ukraine group is also innacurate, because we do not have any known Ukrainian ancestry and for some reason in popular surnames for this ethnicity there are Polish and German surnames ( what?? ).

    They did not even detected any Balkan group for my mother, when it is such recent and should be easily detectable

    As a reminder my mother ancestry before DNA testing was known to be 3/8 Polish, 2/8 Siberian Russian, 2/8 Bulgarian, 1/8 Southern Russian Cossack
