    Need help with 23andme results.

    Hi guys,

    So i have taken the 23andme test. Not only did it leave me with more question, but I am extremely confused. Can somebody please shed some light on the following:

    I tested as 91.1% Middle eastern, I am born in Tehran Iran.

    My Mtdna is K1A4
    My yDNA is R1a1a

    As far as i understand, K1a4 is an European haplogroup, how come i test so high as middle eastern then? R1a1a is also related to the early indo-Iranians (Scythian, Samaritans etc)? Am i right?

    I attached some of my results, any help would be nice

    k1a4 isn't European. Many in Europe have it true, more often later sub-branches though, but it probably started out in Turkey or somewhere in that whole greater region and tons in that greater region have it as well.

    Interesting, i did read some articles saying that K4A1 is related to ancient Anatolia. My grandfather, and grandmother both spoke fluent Turkish (Azeri Turkish)

    Thanks for sharing your results. I can't add anything but that they do not seem to me to be out of the norm.
