    YourDNAPortal makes calculations with one's 23andMe/Ancestry data just like Gedmatch does.

    This doesn't seem accurate for me.

    Puts way too much of my Native American as East Asian, also only scored 8% North America as opposed to 20% South America, when Mexico is North America.

    Hmm, thats weird. I also score 3.74% East Asian, but i know its part of my African Berber ancestry and not my amerindian cuz i already scored 4.14% amerind.

    Are general percentages accurate for you?

    like for example, 50% euro, 10% south asian, etc.


    I think it does quite a good job at general percentages, u shouldnt take the populations seriously because i also score more south european than west european for example.

    My results for their K7:

    Population Percentage
    Sub-Saharan 30.19%
    Oceanian 0.96%
    Amerindian 5.27%
    Euro Hunter-Gatherer 26.72%
    Siberian 0.92%
    Southeast Asian 2.57%
    Near Eastern 33.38%

    It is more or less similar to what Gedmatch gives me on the Sub-Saharan and Amerindian parts, but it gives me an absurdly high Middle Eastern score. Methinks they are taking my South Euro as Middle Eastern on this calc.

    Also, like the poster @Lemba once mentioned, I think they also suffer the same kind of issue that Gedmatch does, as in, not taking the X into account when making their calculations, cuz if they did, my Amerindian would be similar to what 23andMe gives me (8.2%).

    Your Amerindian is divided between Amerind, East asian, Siberian, Southeast asian, etc. So its 100% accurate.

    Near Eastern = Middle Eastern/Arab, North African, West Asian, OR Mediterranean/Italian/Iberian.


    So if you dont have middle eastern it's your mediterranean ancestry. This test also gives me 27.65% Near Eastern and i have no mediterranean ancestry, so a good chunk of it is north african.


    Population Percentage
    Sub-Saharan 25.72%
    Oceanian 0.28%
    Amerindian 2.27%
    Euro Hunter-Gatherer 42.33%
    Siberian 0.27%
    Southeast Asian 1.49%
    Near Eastern 27.65%


    You are roughly 5% more black SSA than i am on this test. Which is quite weird since MyGenomeBox gives me 35.75% black african.
