    Default FCortex's 23andMe Results

    After 3 weeks, my results are finally in!

    Paternal Haplogroup: E2b1

    Maternal Haplogroup: L2c

    Ancestry

    Europe 51%
    Africa:46%
    Asian: 3%

    Global Similarity

    Western Africans 66.52
    Southern Africans 66.5
    Central Africans 66.43
    Eastern Africans 66.4
    Northern Africans 65.84
    Near Easterners 65.65
    Southern Europeans 65.59
    Northern Europeans 65.52
    Central Asians 65.33
    Oceanians 64.98

    South American 64.73

    I was in the middle of a poker tournament at a casino (which I won!) when I got the news. During the last break for the final table, I stepped out and checked my phone. My email had a message from 23andMe, so I knew what it was!

    These resutls come as no surprise to me. I expected higher african, however, because it is in my dad and partially my mom. I predicted around 65% african and the rest euro/native for myself This means that my mom is whiter than I could have imagined She does look predominately Euro though.

    I don't appear to be very similar to anyone. The highest is 66.52. I'm so glad this is over. Now I can stop obsessing over what my results are!

    On the advanced similarity, I am between near east and african. What does this mean?

    Mixed New Worlders generally fall into some interesting plots on Advanced Similarity due to their genotypes. I would not read too much into it. A mixed balanced ancestry between Europe and Africa would logically pull your position into the Middle East on the plot. In addition, many N. Wos have some minor ME input, which furthers pulls them into that plot.

    Congrats!

    Maybe Dr. McDonald will be able to help you figure out what your 3% Asian is?

    Agreed with amerinese. Definitely follow up with McDonald. The Asian could be real (as in Amerind) or noise.

    Interesting results E2b1 is quite rare among new world people of African descent. And L2c is much more "informative" as it is not so widespread.

    Congrats FCortex. Quick question? Why were you expecting more Taino? I never thought you had much if any at all by looking at you really.
