    My Grandfather's Strange Finnish Ancestry Composition Result

    My grandfather who is of 100% Italian ancestry from the Calabria region has received some rather strange Ancestry Composition results. They are strange in the way that he scores quite a bit higher in the Finnish category than any other Southern Italians that I have seen. Here are his results below in the sub-regional breakdown.

    81.8% European

    Southern European

    50.4% Italian
    0.5% Balkan
    16.5% Nonspecific Southern European

    Northern European

    3.2% Finnish
    0.2% British and Irish
    0.7% Nonspecific Northern European

    10.3% Nonspecific European

    5.8% Middle Eastern and North African
    5.8% Middle Eastern
    <0.1% Nonspecific Middle Eastern and North African

    <0.1% Sub-Saharan African

    12.4% Unassigned

    So I find his Finnish score of 3.2% to be very odd for someone who's ancestors came from the Calabria region of Italy. For comparison sake here are his Eurogenes K36 results below where he shows 0% in the Fennoscandian category.

    Amerindian -
    Arabian 2.37%
    Armenian 9.74%
    Basque 1.39%
    Central_African -
    Central_Euro -
    East_African -
    East_Asian -
    East_Balkan 6.60%
    East_Central_Asian -
    East_Central_Euro 1.04%
    East_Med 20.59%
    Eastern_Euro -
    Fennoscandian -
    French 2.43%
    Iberian 9.13%
    Indo-Chinese -
    Italian 21.42%
    Malayan -
    Near_Eastern 9.59%
    North_African 2.34%
    North_Atlantic -
    North_Caucasian 4.09%
    North_Sea 1.48%
    Northeast_African -
    Oceanian -
    Omotic -
    Pygmy -
    Siberian -
    South_Asian -
    South_Central_Asian -
    South_Chinese -
    Volga-Ural -
    West_African -
    West_Caucasian 3.49%
    West_Med 4.30%

    So what would account for his 3.2% Finnish in his Ancestry Composition results I wonder?

    Hmm could be AJL I'm not really sure. A poster on another forum I am a member of told me that 81.8% European is a very unusual score for a Calabrian as well.
