Why are my ancestral results different than expected?
Although our population database has ethnic groups distributed throughout the world, there are many populations that are not represented. In general, it is true that the geographically closer populations have, at the same time, greater genetic affinities. If you have a known ancestry in any population not represented in our database, what you will observe in your report is that the allocation of your genetic makeup has been distributed among the represented ethnic groups that are geographically closer.
On the other hand, it is possible that you have a true ancestry in one of the populations included in our database that has not been detected by our analysis. This is because there may not be sufficient similarities to the individuals in our database from a particular population.
