    I'm curious about what I would get since my parents are from 2 totally different areas of Somalia/Somaliweyne but I'm paranoid about giving away my DNA.

    Just because an Oromo and an Amhara both scored high for Ethiopian DNA on 23andMe doesn't make them indistinguishable.

    Yeah, 23andMe uses political borders and not real ethnic differences. All Ethiopians except perhaps extreme Nilotes like the Nuer/Anuak are included into the Ethiopian grouping.

    However, ironically they don't include Benadiris and Somali Bantus in the Somali cluster.
