Just got my 23andMe DNA analysis report
« on: March 26, 2017, 01:02:31 PM »
It was a birthday present from my mom. It says I'm:

European - 98.7%
Sub-Saharan African - 1.1%
Middle Eastern & North African - < 0.1%
East Asian & Native American - < 0.1%
Unassigned - < 0.1%

My maternal Haplogroup is H.
My paternal Haplogroup is I-P109.

I have 252 Neanderthal variants which is less than 82% of 23andMe customers.

I always knew I was just an old white guy. Now it's official.

I got the same last summer.  They do a very good job.  We have the same maternal Haplogroup (40% of Europeans do) aka H or a sub-variant.  I am H1e.   My paternal Haplogoup is G2a.  Those are the alpha-male, alpha-female parts.  The rest of the 45 genes, are autosomal, a mix, which is where you get the regional/ethnic analysis from.  This website is very good on European ancestry as genetics:

http://www.eupedia.com/genetics/

The I paternal Haplogroup is very ancient ... I1/I2 are W vs E Europe ... and date back to the early Cro-Magnons 40 Kbp.  H maternal Haplogroup is a bit more recent, those people got there at the end of the last Ice Age, so they are very late Cro-Magnon ... Mesolithic instead of Paleolithic.  Though both are hunter/gatherer.  All Cro-Magnons are part Neanderthal.  Only pure modern Black Africans are pure homo sapiens.  The rest of the world is a natural hybrid of two species, like the lion crossed with the tiger is a Liger.  The Bushmen and their relatives of S Africa are the closest in ancestry to the first modern humans (pure strain).  The next closest are the Pygmies and their relatives.  G2a paternal Haplogroup is from the first farmers, who migrated out of Anatolia all over the rest of Europe, in the Neolithic (which came only after the end of the last Ice Age, after the Mesolithic).  For most human beings, when our African ancestors of modern type, first left Africa, they encountered various kinds of Neanderthals, who had been outside Africa for 100s of thousands of years earlier.  They got it on, cave man style, not Gangnam style ;-)

My autosomal DNA is all W European (for last 500 years, as far back as they can check).  That includes the Ashkenazi Jewish part that I have .. they are European, not Roman period ME.  Jews have multiple paternal and maternal lines.  The only fairly pure line that can be proven, are the Kohens.

My sister and her husband did that.  I can't remember all the detail, but it was mostly a European mix with things that surprised them.  I wasn't surprised considering how many generations those things go back.

Everyone is North African apparently. Morocco was the place to be I guess.

My autosome is 100% European.  But some Jews did come in via N Africa, during Roman times.  N African migration into Europe began during the Neolithic at least ... there were some cattle herders that made it to S Spain, very early.  The other Neolithics (my paternal link) had goats and sheep, but not cattle and no horses.  The main drive of the cattle/horse people came in, during the Indo-European migration, during the early Bronze Age.

Iberian ... originally Neanderthal, then New African married into them, creating Cro-Magnon.  Nothing but cave paintings to do and eat large mammals until the ice freeze ends.  The New Africans walked to the Near East first, because they didn't have any boats yet.  Then they walked from the Near East to W Europe.  With the New Stone Age we get various Cro-Magnons moving in until the beginning of the Bronze Age, eventually bringing agriculture from the Near East ... mostly from Turkey, but also from Morocco (cattle herders must have exhausted forage quickly in N Africa).  With the beginning of the Bronze Age (age of myth and heroes) we get the Russian gypsies with their Star Trek technology.  This got them lots of cave men girl friends, and they became the dominant Y chromosome in Europe.  Late Bronze Age Aegean ... we get administrative writing from the Near East but just when the Trojan War gets going, S E Europe collapses into a folk wandering, mostly toward the Near East.  After a few centuries, writing gets started again due to Near East high tech (syllabic alphabet gets converted into true alphabet) and classical civilization starts ... first in Greece, then in Carthage, and finally in Italy.  We have an Iron Age, and men ride horses initially without saddle, but eventually with saddle and stirrup (think late Roman knights).  The Romans give the rest of Europe a taste of civilization, before the Huns and the Germans immigrate all over the place ;-)  And 1500 years later, they still are.  And besides N Africans and Near Easterners coming to Spain in historical times, we eventually have the Arabs, and more Jews, and Africans (Moors).  The Stone Age (old and new) people survive as the Basques.  Jews and Moors who didn't assimilate, got expelled.

I did mine too, and it turned out I'm as white as a polar bear in a blizzard. I was hoping to find something else in the mix. I do have a trace of Jewish blood in me though, but European still. About 5% Iberian too. But I was already aware of my Spanish and Portuguese ancestors. I know the names of all my great-great-great grandparents

Part Iberian, part Jewish too.  Hola primo!

I've been wanting to take a DNA test, myself.  I'm not racist, but I'm afraid that there'd be a distant black ancestor or two and I don't want to change how I live my life.

Don't worry, regardless of results, you can stay in the DNA closet ... only your ichthyologist needs to know you are a fish inside ;-)

MD forbids the 23&Me service.  I just wrote to my Congressman demanding that MD drop the unique restriction.

I expect he will do so immediately.  (yeah right).  But its a start.

I took the Amcestry DNA test in hopes that somewhere there's some interesting mix of background in me somewhere. But I was disappointed to find that I'm 100% white European. There's a little bit of Jewish ancestry and some Iberian (the latter of which I was aware of); that's about as exotic as it gets.
