    Default Will my dad get French and German on 23andme?

    My dad is 1/8th German. It didn't show up for me. The German side of my family is also possibly part Russian. I didn't get Eastern European either. I did get a solid(not very fragmented) 4% Northwestern European. I also got 7.5% broadly European. It kind of clustered with my northwestern European.

    I dunno. I should've got German. But, I didn't get any. I just got British & Irish and Scandinavian.

    Guess my dad won't either. Maybe my grandma could get German.

    I get Scandinavian and Britannien, though. And, Eastern European.

    Probably because your dad isn't full or half German, so it didn't really pass down to you. Remember, you get half of your DNA from your parent's; but what half can be random.

    I don't know about 23andMe; but I only gotten 7% German and I am one of the few members in the family that gotten More Irish than anything while others gotten Great Britain, Europe West (the German and Dutch) or Native American as their biggest ethnicity. Funny how DNA works.

    Maybe it did pass onto me. 23andme isn't good at detecting German.

    If French and German didn't show up on your results then I don't why it would it show up on your dad's results. If your dad was part German then it should have showed up on your results. Maybe you're not really part German and Eastern European or that 7.5 % could be German and Eastern Euro but it got mixed up with other Euro ethnicites. I'm part German and 23andme detected it. I'm part German but I don't say I am on these kind of forums because of haters. It seems like most people on these forums don't like Germans or people who are mixed with German.

    Try to upload your data on Gedmatch. It could show up on there. Supposedly my great great grandma was half Native American. If she was part Native American then I doubt she was half. My 23andme results said I was 0.4% Native but when I uploaded my data to gedmatch it said I was 2.2 % native. 2 or 3% of my ancestry on 23andme is unassigned so I'm assuming my great great grandma wasn't part Native or my unassigned ancestry is native.
