    Default 23and me results in, surprise!

    I am an octoroon.

    I do not understand the asian component, unless some of my european ancestors had some asian ( I do know I have a low percentage from my grandmother, native) which I did not know about.

    The african, is about 5% more than I expected. I guessed that some portuguese, italians, spaniards can have some african ancestry, but it was a bit more than I thought it would be as well.

    Also there were a couple ( 5 or less) 4th and 5th great grandparents I wasn't sure about, wish I could know how much percentage of all my ethnicities I have though.

    Guess such surprises aren't uncommon when doing genetic testings :-p

    European 80%
    African 15%
    Asian 5%

    Global similarities:
    Southern Europeans 66.71
    Northern Europeans 66.67
    Near Easterners 66.49
    Northern Africans 66.23
    Central Asians 66.18
    North Americans 65.6
    Siberians 65.56
    South Americans 65.54
    Oceanians 65.42
    Eastern Asians 65.39
    Eastern Africans 64.99
    Southern Africans 64.97
    Western Africans 64.92
    Central Africans 64.9

    I also don't understand how I can get southern and northern euro's when I have a high african percentage, but then again I am no expert on these things.

    It makes sense to me. Didn't you say your family is from Curacao? If so, given the demographics there it'd have been very surprising if you did not have significant African ancestry.

    That was fast! Well, you do have southern and northern euro ancestry. The only thing your sub-Saharan component is doing is lowering your Global Similarity percentages, but they are valid. You can tell, as you already know, that you have more southern than northern Euro. ancestry, then ME and so on. Now, the next thing to do is to check you Relative Finder list when it becomes available and see where your genetic cousins are from.

    By the way, what is your mtDNA haplogroup?

    Wow! To be honest, I thought I saw other influence in your features, but I didn't want you to take it the wrong way; considering what you said about your ancestry and what not (you said the other influences were distant)...Your ancestor that you posted actually did look triracial to me, though maybe bi racial (idk), so I did think that was a bit fishy.

    But still, you look predominantly European based on your pic and I didn't expect that much African regardless. I thought I was 'underestimating' the diversity of Portuguese people or something, by thinking you looked slightly admixed, but it is what it is. Getting a result of 15% African and 5% Asian in the AP I think is saying quite a bit.

    As for your similarity, it's ordered based on who you're most similar to - you're majority European, and as Serge said, your admix simply lowers your overall Euro similarity.

    CAINE IS WHITER THAN YOU??

    Sorry, I just had to say that.

    Anyways, I'm not too suprised that you have SSA admixture. But you could have more considering that sometimes 23andMe SSA ancestry. Somtimes though.

    Nice results btw.

    She can check, but she may have to much African admixture for it to work. People with high African admixture usually cannot use the tool because sometimes Asian and African are confused (large Asian error reading in afro descendants).

    Some of your "Asian" may actually be due to your African admixture. Many people of African descent score some "Asian" with 23andMe.

    Btw, what is your mtDNA haplogroup, Esther?

    Congrats on the results, now add as many people as you can, only then you'll learn more about your genes.

    An average normal European usually scores over 67.6 with North and South Euro, to give you an idea here, I'm a Middle Eastern person and I score 67.55 South European and 67.39 North European, obviously your African and Asian mixes drag your European scores way too low.

    Also send your raw data to Dr McDonald for more accurate analysis, your African and Asian ancestry is very likely higher than 15% and 5%, which is what McDonald will reveal, what were the haplogroup(s)?
