  1. It says you're <0.1% east asian not native american 😛 which probably comes from your polish ancestors. PS that amount of east european you have is rather expected as the polish people aren't 100% east euro or something hah

  2. DNA is weird. My Grandfather was born in Bergen Norway and I only have 2% Scandinavian :/ and he was a white haired light blue eyes man. I was so surprised by the little percentage, considering how close he is in the blood lines.

  3. My buddy who is full Ukrainian took the test and he only had around 60%
    eastern European DNA. I think they just go off of certain genetic
    markers such as Haplogroup R1A which occurs in high percentages in
    Eastern and central Europe. I don't think they're taking into account
    all of the relevant markers.

  4. These ancestry or ethnicity dna tests are selling the modern day equivalent of selling a pet rock or snake oil.

    There is nothing in one's dna that links them to where they were born. If there is nothing in your dna that links you to where you were born, then there is nothing in one's ancestors that links them to where they were supposedly from.

    Another logical fallacy of these ancestry or ethnicity dna test, is that mental constructs can not be manifest or replicated in one's dna. Anyone beyond the age of two knows that language, culture, ethnicity, religion or life, has to be learned.

    Another logical fallacy is that an individual is only made up of a few haplogroups, when the biological reproductive process is a geometric progression of the power of two, which meaning that going back only 20 generations, there were 1,048,576 contributors to one's dna. It is ass backwards thinking that one can be physically linked to a group.

    Another logical fallacy is that an haplogroup establishes any link to one's real identity. Because of biological reproductive process, each individual is a uniquely distinct individual where each generation losing access to half of the previous generation's dna, one is only genetically related to 128 other individuals which only goes back 7 generations.

    The biological reproductive process is an evolutionary process, where no one has ever been the same or will ever be the same that can only be linked to one's actual progenitors, not some fictional mental construct.

  5. When these companies give you ethnicity results, you must remember that these are merely predictions, which are mostly based on samples gathered from people living today. This can lead to inaccurate predictions. The reason being is that humans have become extremely mobile over the last 500 years (some like the Vikings started roaming much earlier). The movement and sharing of DNA can skew the predictions made by the DNA companies.

  6. explain again about how you found out how you where connected to the Bas and Sammie people. I would like to reach something like that for me. I did the 23and me test. Can you also explain the chr. 1-23. what does each number mean. is 1 for way back then and 23 is now if this make since. EX. If I compare with a relation on say chr line 4 what does that mean.

  7. I am also 99.9% European, 0.1% North African, 83% British/Irish, 3% Scandinavian, 2% French/German and 315 Neanderthal variants, it is strange not many people mention their Neanderthal DNA and it is so important, good luck.
