    here are my k13 genesis results. East Med % seems quite low, though West Med seems a bit elevated?

    if you want a good calculator for minor amounts of Italian try Dodecad V3 and MDLP K23b. Eurogenes seems to have a little trouble with it...

    Zero % Italian in every calc I've tried. I'm now waiting on my Ancestry.com results.

    Did you do the FTDNA Y-DNA test? I am curious what your matches there will show.

    Some people are worried about the major DNA testing companies and their accuracy, even GEDMTACH is seen with skepticism, but that's not the only thing you have to worry about as this woman finds out

    My Scandinavian with FTDNA is 36%, Ancestry is 3%, 23andMe is 4.9%, and MyHeritage is 5.7%. Gencove is 33%, and GenePlaza is either 32.7% from Ancestry or 43.5% from 23andMe. Quite a mix. The only paper trail Scandi I have is a great-grandmother from Denmark, which 23andMe correctly identified.

    Scandinavian seems to be all over the place.

    I get 28% with Ancestry, 7.5% (with another 1.5% Finnish) from MyHeritage (Ancestry upload), or 10% (with another 1.5% Baltic) from MyHeritage (FTDNA upload), but 0% from FTDNA, 1% from 23 and Me and no dots (although lots of broadly NW European), and 10.8% from LivingDNA.

    In reality I know I have a great-grandparent who was born only shortly after both parents immigrated from Sweden, so number is around 12.5% (give or take, since who knows how much I inherited in fact). There's no question of an NPE, as I get lots of matches on that line, including in Sweden, and my mother gets more.

    I don't trust either one. 23&me counted approx. 40% of my dna as nonspecific. Gedmatch calcs readings change more than I do my underwear. There are good features about both but I also notice many flaws. I like DNA Tribes SNP Analysis the best by far.
