I got my results back from Dr. McDonald and perhaps I'm reading the results wrong or not understanding something being a newbie and all but I'm a bit confused, my ancestry is roughly 60% Scottish 40% Irish yet for some reason I cluster closer to the English than the Irish, this is rather strange as most of my Mothers side are from Galway and a good chunk of my fathers ancestry is Irish catholic too. Also I don't understand where the Northeast Euro is coming from, What ancient population does this represent? Hunter gatherer? Slavic? Scandanavian? is it possibly Ashkenazi?.

Heres what Dr. McDonald says...

Most likely fit is 53.9% (+- 16.6%) Europe (all Western Europe)

and 45.6% (+- 17.0%) Europe (all Northeast Europe)

which is 99.5% total Europe

and  0.5% (+-  0.5%) S. Asia (various subcontinents)


The following are possible population sets and their fractions,

most likely at the top

   English= 0.486     Poland= 0.512    S_India= 0.002 or

   English= 0.486     Poland= 0.512    N_India= 0.002 or

   English= 0.484     Poland= 0.514     Sindhi= 0.002 or

   English= 0.485     Poland= 0.515      Uygur= 0.000 or

   English= 0.484     Poland= 0.514     Pathan= 0.002 or

   English= 0.708  Lithuania= 0.283    S_India= 0.008 or

   English= 0.707  Lithuania= 0.283    N_India= 0.009 or

   English= 0.700  Lithuania= 0.289     Sindhi= 0.011 or

   English= 0.699  Lithuania= 0.289     Pathan= 0.012 or

     Spain= 0.149     Poland= 0.851     Sindhi= 0.000


A custom fit, usually

more accurate, gives similar results less the India:


     English 0.8748    Lithuania 0.1252 or

     English 0.8483       Poland 0.1517 or

     English 0.6861      Germany 0.3139 or

     English 0.8775      Belorus 0.1225 or

     English 0.9055      Russian 0.0945 or

     English 0.8368      Hungary 0.1632
