    Err... never

    Err nevermind.

    I guess I should have used my sometimes thick skull. The kit, FTDNA, likely hadn't loaded properly given as the new one works a lot better than saying I am related to Egyptians, Berbers, etc. Still was rather interesting.

    That's odd. What are your FTDNA results? I'd naturally trust 23 and Me more and assume the weird populations are noise/false.

    I don't see why your FTDNA gedmatch results would show such odd oracle results considering both of your tests seem quite normal for your known background. I suppose it's possible to have odd populations pop up in your ancestry but it seems a lot more exaggerated than I'd expect.

    You're telling me.

    I thought I was seeing things when I noticed Eurogenes K15. But then going through others it appeared more and more.

    I am going to leave it up just for thoughts but there's a possibility the kit may be loaded wrong to gedmatch. The diagnose tool doesn't indicate problems.

    Not likely. Lots of people have the same affliction as you, so maybe there is something to it.
