My Personal Relatives Finder

Like most people who are into family research I’m always interested in finding new relatives and to get in touch with distant cousins. To make this easier I had my DNA tested on 23andme and on Ancestry DNA and also uploaded it to GEDmatch (Kit # M368955), GedMatch Genesis (Kit # BW5201028) as well as FTDNA, MyHeritage and others. My full family tree is available on MyHeritage, please ask for access.

Please check out my ancestry composition charts at the end of this page!

My paternal haplogroup is J2b2*J-M172 or J-M241 (whatever you call it)
My maternal haplogroup is H1-C16239T

  1. Hallo, wende mich an Sie mit einer ganz großen Bitte… mich würde es sehr interessieren woher stammt eigentlich Fam. Berger, die haben damals in der Riesengebirge gelebt ca bis 1945.
    Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort und Mühe.
    MfG Monika Tillmann

  2. You probably score Italian in many tests because you have Ashkenazi ancestry. Your Y-haplogroup is a common Ashkenazi haplogroup. On PCA charts Ashkenazim cluster next to South Italians. Ashkenazi Jews can also score North Italian, and Tuscan. Your Ashkenazi ancestry is represented by Northern Italy, and Cyprus in your Living DNA test.

  3. In reality your Eastern European score would be higher if 23 and me had genetically correct regions. Austria_Carinthia is genetically Eastern European. On PCA chart eastern Austrians cluster with Hungarians and Czechs, whereas Tirolese cluster with South Germans. Eastern Austrians are actually closer to East Germans than Bavarians. France and Germany is a ridiculous region that should be done away with. The French people I know find the region offensive. Living DNA has the most accurate European regions.
