    Could be indicative of Sephardic/Mizrahi ancestry, although FTDNA has a Sephardic category.
    The word for gypsy "gitanos" in Spanish or "gitanes" in French actually has its origin in "egipcianos" / "égyptiennes" (Egyptians).

    When Romani people began to arrive to Western Europe the popular belief was that they came from Egypt. I don't know to which extent that is true.

    From Middle English Gipcyan, Gypcyan (Gyptian), from Old French gyptien. Short for Egyptian, from Latin aegyptius, because when Roma first appeared in England in the sixteenth century they were wrongly believed to have come from Egypt. The Albanian term Evgit, Greek γύφτος (gýftos), Italian zazza' and Spanish gitano have the same origin.

    For the record, the genetic origins of all Romani peoples, is NW India/Pakistan and Anatolia/Balkans region. Not Egypt. The ethnogenesis is likely close to modern day Istanbul.

    They're pretty accurate for me. I would say it's easier to be accurate when your regions are so general, except my father got 91% West and Central European, 9% Scandinavian and less than 1% British, which makes no sense. They got the regions right for him, but the percentage for West/Central Europe vs. British is way off.

    When are they going to get around to updating My Origins?

    Screenshot_2019-08-16 myFTDNA - My Origins.png
    Paper trail:

    Father = 50% English (early American settlers), 25% Dutch, 12.5% Danish, 8% German + some Irish, Scottish and French

    Mother = 75% Ashkenazi Jewish (Russia/Ukraine) and 25% Sephardic (Turkey)
