Orkney Islands – Archipelago, off the North East coast of Scotland (makes sense b/c I have an Irish/Scottish surname)
Orcadian – Natives of Orkney islands, they descended from Picts, Norse, and Scots
Ancestry.com said I was 89% African of that African I am 22% Ivory coast/Ghana, 16% Nigerian, 14% Southeastern Bantu, Cameroon/Congo 11%, Benin/Togo 9%, Mali 7%, Senegal 6%, Africa North 3%, Africa South Central Hunters and Gatherers less than 1% + 11% European of that 11% I am 8 % Great Britain, 3% Finland and N.West Russia and less than 1% Ireland

GEDmatch said I was 84% African, 13% or 11 % Eurasian or European, 2 % Asian, less than 1 % Middle Eastern and less than 1 % Native American

DNA.land says I am 85 % African, 13% West Eurasian, 1.8 % Kalash (Pakistan, India), 1.8% Ambigous

Overall, I think GEDmatch and DNA.Land were close percentage wise. GED match and Ancestry were close with my European percentages. GEDmatch and DNA.Land were a little off compared to Ancestry when it came to my African percentage. GEDmatch and DNA.Land showed South Indian, Middle Eastern, Native American + Asian ancestry where Ancestry.com didn’t show those results (but it’s in my raw dna file , hmm go figure, I wonder why they didn’t show my native, Asian, middle eastern or Indian ancestry??? It makes you wonder. Any thoughts?)

    When i find DNA results having 2-3% Finnish + some Native American ancestry i'm curious to ask is there any ancestry connection to states like Minnesota or Michigan or perhaps to rural New York. Then we have to remember that Native Americans have 7 different lineages to Asia including: Southeast Asia, Polynesia, Japan, China, Siberia and even as west as Central Asia. Note: Y-DNA haplo group N has its origin in China. It's common in Siberia – and in Finland (60%)

  2. Thanks for sharing your experience. Anyway, you can't compare DNA.Land with GEDMatch as DNA.Land compares your alleles with reference population groups. GEDmatch does NOT compare your alleles to any reference group. I just learned this. They have various "calculators" to estimate a person's ancestry, mixed or otherwise. The most useful tool on GEDmatch is the chromosome painting tool. With this tool, you can "see" all the ancestry admixture across all of your 22 chromosomes. Another useful tool of GEDmatch is for cousin matching. You will want to use the tool where you can see on which chromosomes you match and what is the common ancestors' ancestry makeup which was passed down to you and your cousin match. Overall, DNA.Land is more reliable than Ancestry DNA.

  3. how much native American DNA did you get?

    that's awesome where are you from? my sisters dad is half hodnruan Garifuna and half African American from Georgia and he's 92% African, 8% native American.
