23andMe Ancestral Origins Update 2019

23andMe – New Ancestry Reports 2019

Here we go again. It is 2019, and 23andMe has sent out an email letting me know they have once again updated my DNA results to compare to 1000+ world populations.

My results are below followed by 23andMe’s email. What I can tell you is that they are still really most sincerely wrong. On the plus side though, I once more have that Snazzy Sub-Saharan African % that Dr. Doug McDonald identified in 2010.

    I can imagine that some minor details can be wrong, but the biggest part must be correct. Don’t you have French ancestry ?

  2. I to have DNA from 23andme, and found where they are giving me french and german, I dug a little deeper, it seems that it is French and German from Switzerland. I also noted the Sub Saharan, and of course dug deeper, it seems both of these calls come from England. For me and the timeline, it coincided with war, government, or just a british population in that area at that time. Mine states there is no French from France and no German from Germany but both are from Switzerland. Not sure if that will help you.

    1. I am not the least bit surprised by my results at any of the companies. I fully understand why they are getting the results and why they are junk science. There is methodology, but it is not a good use of the science.
