      sure there are conspiracy theories (for anything though, if you start buying into them I'm not sure how you can even leave the house or get through the day really!!!), but I trust they are following the regulations and abiding by the permissions we have granted or not granted.

    Where did North American come from? Is it because the test groups Japan, Hawaii and eastern North America together?

  • Figgy5119
    Figgy5119 22 days ago

    The Spanish relative would explain that North Africa DNA. Spain was an Islamic caliphate for some time.
    And anyone who has significant heritage from England is bound to have Scandinavian in them as well. Almost the entirety of England was conquered by Vikings, who were known to take Anglo Saxon wives.
    I do find it weird that 23 and me put British Isles and Ireland together, as studies within the UK has shown those populations to be different. Irish and Scottish should probably be together (the native Scottish peoples kinda disappeared and were replaced by the Gaels, although arguably the populations could have mingled), and Wales, Manx, and Cornish would be the group of Britons, and then England would be the Anglo Saxons.
    However, you could also argue that every region in the world would need to go down to small minutia like this...

      +US Japan Fam haha, a little yeah. well there could have been african as we all originated from Africa, but it all depends on the genes that have been passed down. About the Korean, my wife is Chinese and when I opened the video she asked me: Is he Korean? Hahah. So we weren't surprised to see that result XD.

    • US Japan Fam
      US Japan Fam 1 month ago

      are you calling me out on clickbait?? perhaps a bit, but my true reaction was wow when i saw the 7% korean for my husband, i was really expecting 100% japanese so it was quite a fun shock for me, as you can see in my reaction in the video! Of course seeing any amount of asian or african in my own results would have been a TRUE OMFG WOW moment, but I think we can all look at me and go, yeah girl, there was never any chance of that LOL

    I live in the UK and you look quite typically British :) I'd love to do this test too but being Finnish I'm sure it would turn out very high percentages Finnish & Swedish, possibly some Russian mixed in and that's it. My family can be traced to Finland all the way back to the 16th century, so boring! I'd love to have a secret relative from a far-away land... Ah, hopefully my future children can be the exciting & exotic mutts lol

    This is very interesting as I'm considering doing this. My maternal family line is well documented, Scot/Irish to 1600. But I have wondered about the paternal Welsh side. During the middle ages and before Vikings raided the Irish coast for slaves and plunder and even earlier, the Celts migrated over the Russian Steppes to get to the now Irish, Welsh, Scottish homes. So it could be interesting in that way.

  • Nora O
    Nora O 1 month ago

    Genetics are super interesting and rather random at times. For example if you have siblings their percentages might be different. Like their part of the Southern European or Scandinavian might be bigger, even if they are your full sibling.
    I'm mixed race and have 4 siblings. I'd love to do an ancestry test for all of use to see what's what. :D

    • Nora O
      Nora O 1 month ago

      Genetics are complicated. Like there are certain traits that are more prevalent with certain races. Then there are dominant and recessive genes. Like ones features are based on either having a dominant gene deciding it or doubled of the recessive one and no dominant, But then you can have recessive genes dormant and if your partner has the same, your kids might get them. It's super complicated and I'm not sure I got it right. Hahhahaha.

    • US Japan Fam
      US Japan Fam 1 month ago

      Exactly!! It would be really interesting to compare yours against your siblings and see if the percentages match up to what you guys see, like if any have stronger traits of one race over another. For example, 2 of my 3 kids look a teeny tiny bit more Asian than the 3rd, I wonder if the 3rd somehow got a bit less Japanese or if that's even how it works? So interesting!

    Hello! New to your channel! I did my DNA testing with ancestry.com and still waiting (since February 9th)! My mother is white and father is Chinese. My mom theorizes that when the father is asian and mother is white that the children will look more Asian but your children look more white. Not a bad thing, so interesting (*´꒳`*) such a beautiful family! Thanks for your sharing your results, very amazing ٩(^‿^)۶

    I'm very fascinated by these kind of things and would like to do it myself but I'm only a Belgian teenager so I can't really do it right now and it would mean the results would be very boring too. The most 'exotic' might be maybe some spanish or British.

      Talk to your parents, they might be interested as well and you could all do it together! Where you're from doesn't really mean anything about what your results will be, you may get some totally shocking answers, or not, but it'll still be cool to see!! :)

    Great report here! I'm a mixed female born to a black mom and white dad. I know bits and pieces about my European half, but don't have a clear picture of my black half. I've heard I had a great grandparent on my mom's half who was part Native American, but I'm not so sure. My mom was pretty dark so I probably have around 40% African ancestry or close to it. More than Maya Rudolph if I might add. LOL. As far as you having a little bit of North African and Middle Eastern DNA, there's a special, special story behind that. North Africa, from what I heard, was originally all black like Sub-Sahara Africa below, which the latter counts for about 80% of the continent. It wasn't until maybe the 8th or 9th century when the Berbers and Arabs started the slave trade thus enslaving thousands from North Africa, the Middle East and Southwestern Europe (Iberia peninsula). Thus, resulting in lots of mixing between the native North African people (the blacks), Arabs and Europeans. It's also said that many people in Spain and Portugal can trace their roots to the Middle East because of this. I'm not saying you may have black ancestry because of this. DNA test kits only go back 1,000 years. However, I'm writing all of this to give you a little bit of history here.

    • Ssookawai
      Ssookawai 24 days ago

      He didn't seem bothered , in fact, he said it "first" without even looking at the results as if he was expecting it ... his silence was more like "Oh, I don't remember that I've been told about it... ", so this mixing must have happened centuries ago, way before the second world war, that's why he had no clue about it.
      He's looks like an intelligent guy, who's proud of his japanese heritage (like yeaah I'm 100% japanese,lol) and doesn't feel the need to prove it.
      I'm Moroccan, I always say that I'm not Arab but Moroccan, a native person yet I won't be surprised if take the test and see some 7 or 10% of middle-eastern "Arab" dna in me... would that make me racist because I say I'm 100% moroccan? Of course not!

    • Kimo The Beatmaker

      Koreans are related to Japanese....and vice verse. Genetically speaking. So hating them is hating ourselves lol. I love my Korean culture...I love Korean people.

    Bless your beautiful family dear. I also took my test with ancestry and to my surprise I'm 74% European,a lot of Eastern plus Iberian peninsula, and very shocking to me was that I'm 33% Italian/ Greek <3
    I was really happy about that but what blew my mind away totally was that I'm 16% African (5% Senegal 4% North African, them smaller amounts of Togo & Benin & NIGERIA, I mean how amazingly cool is that
    Now the icing on my cake was to find out I'm 7% NATIVE AMERICAN <3
    With my last Lil bits being 3% middle eastern & about 3% European Jewish
    I didn't know religion could be traced but hey I'm cool with it <3
    Again thank you for your video, these are so much fun to watch :)

    • Ssookawai
      Ssookawai 24 days ago

      It's normal for Latin American people because of the Spanish (and portuguese) conquests... a large population was decimated not just because of genocides, but also because of "foreign" diseases and the native people's immune system couldn't cope with it... the 16% which is a mix of north and sub-saharan Africa is mainly because of "Moorish" presence in Andalus ( nowadays Spain and Portugal), my maternal grandma is a descendant of these moorish who had to flee persecution from Spain because they were muslim (and others were jewish) and had to settle in Morocco. ;-)
      The output , "you", is extremely beautiful and God/Allah put it in a nice way in the quran when He told us that He created us as Tribes and Nations so we can get to know each other with all our differences and rich traditions. Your birth is a beautiful fruit of this cultural exchanges through love and marriage. :)
      May God bless you! <3

      jamilasalaam hey you have the same name as me! and the same spelling- that's rare!

      When they say Jewish they don't mean the religion. They're refering to Jewish as a race as they've become a sort of race or tribe in their own right. so you could be Muslim or Christian or what ever else but with Jewish ancestory.

    "I'm not surprised that it was all European". No, not surprised as such, but obviously disappointed.

      She's American and the US is extremely mixed, so it's normal to expect a "surprising" result like 5% native or 5% African...

      I feel the same way. I've researched my family tree so I know just about everyone traces back to England. There's some Irish and German as well, but since I have family that's been in America since the 1600s I think there maaaaay be an illegitimate child somewhere! But I don't want to waste money to find out what I already know.

      Not disappointed as in ashamed or sad about my ancestry whatsoever, but I guess I was secretly hoping for some really crazy and unexpected thing to turn up like 15% Native American or African or Asian. Looking in the mirror, and knowing what I've heard from relatives digging through the family tree, I knew it was very unlikely, but still, you never know and certainly there have been discoveries like this! Kinda like when we tested our twins for zygosity, looking at them it was like, duh, they're fraternal, but I still had a glimmer of wonder like, well, mayyyyyyybe they could be identical, let's see! :P

      In the Neolithic era there were mass migrations from the middle east into Europe (which is how agriculture and farming was introduced to Europe!), so I believe that is why so many European people sometimes get this tiny almost insignificant trace of "Middle eastern and North African" on 23andme. Many people don't realise it but technically most middle easterners (and north africans like Berbers) belong to the "caucasoid" race as well, and still share many of the same maternal and paternal haplogroups as Europeans. (My maternal haplogroup for example, is very common in Syria, but my family tree is British going almost 400 years back and I am 100% European) So 0.1% is almost certainly statistical noise. A fully north african ancestor in the past 300 years? More like 3000 years ago maybe. So I wouldn't bother looking for some unknown forefather in your family tree.

      Adan Dualeh maybe because she isnt african???? why the hell would she waste her time to look up something that she is only 0.1% of? are you tellimg her that she should waste her time just to satisfy you? sound's absurd and sounds more like a personal problem

      Unfortunately the most detailed breakdown I got for the non-European part was "<0.1% North African", it just seemed so miniscule I didn't think much about looking further. But thank you for bringing it up, when I click on the timeline, I get a bit more info which is interesting, "You most likely had a fourth great-grandparent, fifth great-grandparent, sixth great-grandparent, or seventh great (or greater) grandparent who was 100% North African. This person was likely born between 1710 and 1800." It'll be interesting to talk to relatives who've done some looking into our family tree to see if they have any more info on this person.

      Haha! Yes, so interesting!! As you can see in the video I was kinda disappointed in the 99.8% european thing, seems so boring LOL but then to see the breakdown, and timeline, it's so so cool. Talking to some other relatives, apparently we have ancestors who colonized America and were part of Oregon Trail and all that, so the dates in the DNA analysis make sense!
