On 23andme and AncestryDNA the same being assigned to German and Eastern European respectively.

    Eastern Europe contains the following Population Clusters:

    East Slavic
    Magyar
    West Slavic

    Since there's no further explanation, Magyar just means Hungarian, and not any minority group within Hungary.

    But I've seen Hungarians scoring low levels or none at all.
    Which is why I'm asking.
    I am yet to see anyone scoring high levels on this component

    I saw Germans with a clearly German profile scoring less than 20 percent German on MH, but a lot of Scandinavian and Balkan. so I wouldn't give it too much attention. Hungarian in general is from my point of view one of the least clearly defined ancestries in Europe, because its primarily a mix of the above-mentioned components, plus in some regions additional Iranian (Sarmatian), Uralic and Turkic ancestry. A Hungarian can be very close to Germans/Austrians, Slovaks or Serbs respectively.

    There is something screwy with it. My mom, my son, and myself get a quarter Magyar and we have no Magyar ancestry whatsoever not even remotely. In our case it seems to be replacing our British/colonial American anfestry, which is completely missing on all three of our accounts.

    I just saw your results and that you're Italian. We are also Italian 50% except for my son who is less and we get the 20% Magyar but it also nullifies our other ancestry from America, my son having colonial from my side and his fathers.

    People from Italian or Spaniard descent get Magyar or Slavic in Myorigins 3.0. They don't know any Magyar ancestor. They didn't get any East Europe in Myorigins 2.0.

    Do they still get Balkan too or did they get it before?
