    How much Asia Minor do you score on My Origins?

    I am curious to see how much Asia Minor our forum members score, especially those of a predominately European background. It should be noted that this cluster uses mostly Armenian samples (from my understanding).

    A summary of the population cluster via FTDNA:

    The Asia Minor group is present from South Asia, Turkey, the Caucasus, and along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It was home to early hunter-gatherers and farmers. It has a deep history and connects to many lineages. It is the mark of those who moved east to west and back again, along what would become the Silk Road. The Asia Minor group is connected to the oldest groups of modern humans. As early humans left Africa, they settled in this area. The hunter-gatherers were eventually replaced by the first farmers.

    Early recorded history confirms several cultures lived in this area and left their mark, such as the Phrygians, the Hurrians, the Hittites, the Hatti, and the Armenians. Later, the Turks swept down from Asia and brought people from the Asian Northeast group. Likewise, the Arab expansion brought members of the Eastern Middle East group to the southern borders of the Asia Minor. We find that it is the strongest in Turks from the Fertile Crescent and people from the Caucasus. Closed social groups, such as the Druze and Assyrians, also have clear signatures of the Asia Minor group, suggesting that their genes are native to the region.
    Family scores:

    I can't do this with 23andme data can I? Are there any gedmatch calculators that will show it?

    Unfortunately not. If you had Ancestry data you could transfer it to FTDNA to get your results. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I assume the East Med component on the Eurogenes K13 might be something similar.

    Yeah I don't think I have any, just thought it would be useful for you to compare.

    My results are as follows :

    European :
    Western and Central Europe : 54 %
    Southern Europe : 31%
    Eastern Europe : 9 %

    Middle Eastern :
    Eastern Middle East : 4%
    Asia Minor : 3%

    Total...101 %

    From what I've seen so far in average, the more Northwestener you are the less Middle Eastern components you'll get. So basically Brits, Scandinavians, north Dutch people and north Germans will most of the time be classified as 100 % European. When you have a more continental autosomal profile (most germans and central europeans) a 5 % middle eastern is quite common, most of the time "Asia Minor". For southern europeans it depends widely. I think spaniards get some "North African" mostly whereas south eastern europeans score very easily around 10 %-15% "Asia Minor". That's the case for three cousins of mine, two serbs and a bulgarian. Italians and Greeks will get even more of course.
    I don't want to be too affirmative about these observations, since MyOrigins is less popular than the 23andme Ancestry Composition I've seen far less results of the former.
    Let's wait for some other results

    My Serbian family shows Asia Minor at percentage varying from 15 to 20 % in my Origins. Very identical to what doug mcdonald BGA calculated for them. I show 5 % Asia Minor. Was 3 % South Asia in old Population Finder.
