    My updated 23andme and DNA Land results + my mothers results

    I just wanted to share and discuss my updated 23andme results and my mothers results aswell as my DNA Land results since there are not many Subsaharan Africans who have openly discussed this topic.

    I was expecting my mum to be at least 12% european British and Irish originating from the British empire. This is because my maternal grandmother told me that my great grandfather was mixed 50/50 because of his light brown skin, blue eyes, bone structure and his lose textured hair. My grandmother is medium brown with blue eyes with a fairly caucasian phenotype just like her dad.

    However, i was told phenotype does not necessarily mean genes...

    I was expecting to be 6% European from my mum and 3% North African and 1% South Asian from my dad. This is because again my grandfather is very light skinned or was very light skinned with a caucasian phenotype lose curled hair.

    One last thing does 23andme underestimate admixtures because i do score the populations as scored as above but at a very low percentage.

    23andmes conservative has me as 95% SSA with bits unassigned so can i say I'm 95% SSA?

    Tell me what you think also feel free to share your results...

    BTW my results are labeled as Abdurashid Bwika
