    23andMe Countries of Ancestry Results

    Post yours in this thread and feel free to update the community on new results.

    I've experienced a sudden boon in mine. As of 8/08/2012, they (excluding matches with those either showing no information or only listing New World countries) currently are;

    Europe
    Code:
    Dutch-German 			(3-1) 					5.4cM
    Irish 				(full) 					6.7cM
    Swedish-Hungarian 		(2-2) 					5.1cM
    Greek 				(full) 					5.3cM
    Swiss 				(full) 					5.3cM
    Serbian 			(full)					5.1cM
    Russian-Unknown 		(2-2) 					5.3cM
    Near-East
    Code:
    Iranian 			(full) 					8.8cM
    Iranian 			(full) 					6.6cM
    Iranian 			(full, Zoroastrian) 			4.8cM
    Iranian 			(full) 					5.7cM
    Iranian-British 		(2-2)					6.4cM
    South Asia
    Code:
    Pakistani-Indian-Unknown 	(1-1-2) 				6.2cM
    Africa
    Code:
    South African 			(full) 					5.2cM
    Americas
    Code:
    Russian-German-American 	(2-1-1) 				7.1cM
    Chilean 			(Sephardic, full) 			5.9cM
    Italian-American 		(2-2) 					5.9cM
    Ukrainian-American 		(1-2) 					5cM
    American Euro mix 		(pre. Irish) 				5.9cM
    American Euro mix 		(Russian, Polish, Finnish, Irish) 	5.5cM
    American 			(British) 				5.3cM
    American Euro mix 		(Ireland, Lithuania, Italy, Greece)	5.2cM
    Ashkenazi Jewish American 	(full) 					5.1cM
    Ashkenazi Jewish American 	(full) 					5.3cM
    Polish-Slovakian-American 	(2-1-1) 				5.2cM
    American Euro mix 		(Swedish, Bavarian, Polish?, Irish) 	5.2cM
    Some very quick comments on trends;
    - Most of the Euro descent matches seem to be Eastern European (particularly Poland and Russia), Irish or Italian.
    - The only Near-Eastern matches I have are with other Iranians, including a Zoroastrian from Yazd on my X-Chromosome, indicating I share a recent ancestor with them on my Persian maternal side.
    - None of my Armenian Relative Finder matches (of which there are three) have elected to place their information on AF.

    Well, I do have a 4GP from Iran, 7.3 cM, but not quite as many as you.

    I suspect matches at ~5 - ~6.5 cM and sometimes higher might be of questionable validity or remote antiquity, just based on some cases I have seen comparing people's matches over several generations. Ann Turner wrote a very astute piece about this.

    A quick look at mine at 5 cM, 4 grandparents, primarily colonial un-checked:

    Russia 7.4%
    Ukraine 5.7%
    Poland 4.2%
    Hungary 2.4%
    Belarus 2.1%
    United Kingdom 1.8%
    Lithuania 1.3%
    Germany 1.0%
    Latvia 0.9%
    Romania 0.8%
    France 0.7%
    Argentina 0.6%
    Finland 0.5%
    Moldova 0.4%
    Czech Republic 0.4%
    Brazil 0.2%
    Syria 0.1%
    Netherlands 0.1%
    Morocco 0.1%
    Iran 0.1%
    Cape Verde 0.1%
    Belgium 0.1%
    Mexico 0.0%
    Bulgaria 0.0%-0.5%

    These matches are predominately from my father's side. My mother overwhelmingly matches Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, with some distant Spain/Portugal, and some Hungary/Eastern Euro that are seemingly connected to Oestdeutsch, and a couple of Scandinavians. {EDIT This has changed a bit as of 19 Aug. 2012}

    Comparing to my grandfather, most of the Central/Eastern Europe is from him (and most of this appears Ashkenazi). "Russia" is also hard to pin down because in many cases it will mean imperial Russia/USSR, so should be folded into Belarus, Ukraine, or elsewhere. My grandfather additionally has a number of Italian matches that I do not -- one as high as 8.9 cM -- and appears to have an unexpectedly recent link to the Balkans as well that I did not inherit.

    The intriguing matches in my kit mainly seem to come from my late grandmother, who had Sephardi/Mizrahi ancestry from Syria. (I have a 4 grandparent 7.4 cM match from there.) Having scattered matches at the bottom with the Near East and Caucasus with 4 grandparents, I wish there were more testing from these areas, as I am sure you do, Humata! Database bias is quite the thing...

    Here are mine at 4 gp and 5+ cM:



    In case anyone is wondering about UKR/RUS, my paternal grandparents were Russian Germans.

    Nothing's changed in my Ancestry Finder results for the past month or so, although I continue to watch with the new Build 37 upgrade going on.

    At 5cM, 4grandparents, colonies box unticked.

    No changes to report. Note the poor African matches for New World Diasporans due to lack of sampling from ancestral regions. 4 GPs, 5cM+ matches, excluding the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
