    Post your low confidence genetic groups

    Low - confidence genetic groups on My heritage must be not so accurate as the medium and high ones . In my case , my additional genetic groups of low confidence are actually more corresponding with my ancestry . Post yours and please tell if you think it matches your known ancestry. Also , what percentage of your ancestry do they cover ( for example 25% - one grandparent).

    My low confidence genetic communities are actually realistic - Myself - Netherlands (North Holland), French Settlers in Reunion. Dad - Netherlands (South Holland, North Holland, Gelderland and Utrecht). My mum has Northwestern Germany which I'm unsure of. Mine and Dad's I'm pretty certain about, my dad has Dutch ancestry on his mother's side. My French Settlers in Reunion community appears as a medium confidence one for my mum.
    Ethnogene: 51.4% NW European, 21.6% W European, 10.1% Southeastern African, 9.5% Southeast Asian, 4.4% South Asian, 2% Scandinavian, 1% East African
    Papertrail @ 2xggrandparents: 37.5% London, 25% Dorset, 25% Mauritius, 6.25% Netherlands, 6.25% Hampshire

    My one "low-confidence" region is: Northeastern and Midwestern USA and Canada #1 (English and some German settlers in Northeastern and Midwestern U.S.), which my dad also gets at low confidence. It seems reasonable to me, though I'm not sure exactly what it corresponds to and why it's at a lower confidence level. My dad has 5 overlapping regions in the Northeastern/Midwestern U.S. (2 of them at low confidence), all purportedly corresponding to English, German, Irish, Scottish and Dutch settlers. Since about 70% of his ancestry comes from colonial North American settlers from those parts of Europe, this makes sense, but the groups are all pretty vague and similar. Oddly enough, the one group that he gets that doesn't have anything to do with his known paper trail (Ashkenazi Jews in Lithuania, Poland and Belarus) shows up at medium confidence.

    My mom's one low-confidence region is "Ashkenazi Jews in Central and Eastern Europe". Her other three groups are also Ashkenazi and more centered on Eastern Europe where her known recent ancestry is from, so maybe the low-confidence group is picking up on smaller segments shared with more distant cousins from farther west.

    My only low confidence group is an Ashkenazi group. I don't score any Ashkenazi jewish percentage. I have the group on both my uploads.

    I have four different analyses – three based on uploads (from AncestryDNA, Family Tree DNA, and 23andMe), and one based on the MyHeritage test. No two of these have exactly the same set of Genetic Groups, although there is some overlap.

    AncestryDNA upload

    High – Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee; Northeastern and Midwestern USA #6; Pennsylvania and Ohio; Mississippi and Louisiana
    Medium – Creoles of Color in Louisiana; Midwestern USA; Southern USA; Creoles in Louisiana
    Low – Northeastern and Midwestern USA #9; Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and Pennsylvania; Midwestern and Northeastern USA

    Family Tree DNA upload

    High – Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee; Pennsylvania and Ohio; Mississippi and Louisiana; Northeastern and Midwestern USA
    Medium – Creoles of Color in Louisiana; Midwestern USA; Creoles in Louisiana; Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Pennsylvania
    Low – Southern USA; Midwestern and Northeastern USA

    23andMe upload

    High – Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee; Mississippi and Louisiana; Pennsylvania and Ohio
    Medium – Northeastern and Midwestern USA; Creoles of Color in Louisiana; Midwestern USA; Mississippi; Southern USA; Creoles in Louisiana; Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and Pennsylvania
    Low – Midwestern and Northeastern USA

    MyHeritage test

    High – Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee; Creole of Color in Louisiana
    Medium – Mississippi and Louisiana; Pennsylvania and Ohio
    Low – no additional groups

    My ancestry in America on my father's side is pretty much limited to Pennsylvania and Maryland.

    My mother's side is more complicated. Like my father's, my mother's side also includes Pennsylvania and Maryland. But in addition to that it includes Virginia, Ohio, Arkansas, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi, and Louisiana. It also includes a small Native American component through both her father (who was likely born in Arkansas and grew up in Oklahoma), and her mother (who was born and raised in Biloxi, Mississippi).

    Besides British-German-Catalan, ancestry includes smaller amounts of French, Irish, Swiss, Choctaw & another NA tribe, possibly Catawba. Avatar picture is: my father, his father, & his father's father; baby is my eldest brother.

    Interesting that my 'possible' regions score 'very likely' for my father. I wonder if this suggests a weaker connection for myself or is it due to the fact that he has double the matches I have? It'd be interesting to see what my sisters results would show for Genetics Communities.

    I score 'Central Donegal' ,both of my parents do not have this!
