    Yea a lot of SA test positive for these SNPs, contribution of both steppe as well as ANF.

    Apparently when I was born, my great grandmother was happy about my fair skin complexion. It is ingrained in our culture.

    Could it be more broadly be categorised as deriving from West Eurasian ancestry?. Apparently my mum's Dada was also light skinned and considering that my nana has the SNP that I described, it is now possible to know where it came from.

    I do wish South Asian families were better educated about this though to be honest.

    Continue this in the pheno thread. There's so many factors in skin color from a genotype standpoint. I don't think a shared SNP is the reason, rather a collection of SNP's that we may or may not be aware of.

    I agree, I just thought that it is interesting since our culture is so obsessed with fair skin and it has recently been in the news with the recent description of Kashmiri women as "gori ladki" by a Haryanvi politician

    Endogamy probably has a role to play too? since my mum's family are heavily inbred and I am sure that it reduces genetic diversity for sure.

    Believe me, my extended family is no different. We can take this to the pheno thread, if you'd like to discuss further.

    Seems quite typical of a South Asian? her mother migrated from Haryana so I expected increased steppe DNA.

    She doesn't have access to a PC yet so I will wait for her GED match results, it would be interesting to see her Geneplaza results too.
    could you post the harappa results?

    Going off those results alone, yes very typical. Most likely upper caste though.

    My cousin is doing a work placement and has been very busy.

    I will try to ask her to upload her raw DNA to GED match.

    Yeah and her mother is from Haryana so I would imagine an increase in West-Eurasian derived admixture which is logical as one goes west. Haryana was formerly part of Punjab, do Haryanvis cluster genetically with Punjabis?.

    Don't all South Asians test positive for those two? It's positive in my family as well as my cousin's family including the ones that are not light skinned.

    Well the northern part of India and Pakistan was tested in the paper I mentioned
