Don't get worked up about statistical noise.
That new feature about gobol/provincial-origins is unreliable.
That's just half of the story.23andme has called BS on the Asharaaf clan Ayrab claim. They are 45% Ethiopian/Eritrean, 5% Sudanese, and 50% Somali. Bootyclappers will now avoid 23andme like the plague.
I am Sheikhaal and Ashraaf is not part of the clan.That's just half of the story.
Sheekhaals still got weird paternal haplogroups from recent North Africans and Middle Easterners (E-M81, E-M123, R1a). Those paternal lineages aren't Somali. Only E-V32, E-V6, rare E-M35 subtypes, and T1a are Somali paternal lineages who have been there in the region for a few thousand years.
Clan research can only be done on familytreedna.com, they are specialized in paternal haplogroups. The sub-sub-sub-sub clades of certain clans are already known.I am Sheikhaal and Ashraaf is not part of the clan.
Will there be more updates? They should do clans now.
On a serious note,The single largest part of my DNA is Ethiopian/Eritrean.
I honestly thought that. I remembered Ethiopians have large amounts of Semetic DNA.On a serious note,
Somali segments combined with Arabian segments could fool their algorithm in thinking it is Eritrean or something (they are mixed with South Semites).
For you, I'd say wegene.com will be more accurate when it comes to your roots because of good references without confusing ones.
There was a reer Xamar girl who took the DNA test, and she got like 16% Ethiopian Jewish.The single largest part of my DNA is Ethiopian/Eritrean.
Nope, Benadiris aren't mixed with Ethiopians. I have looked into it.There was a reer Xamar girl who took the DNA test, and she got like 16% Ethiopian Jewish.
You guys are just a bunch of different mixes. There is no uniform gene pool among the reer Xamar people.
I wouldn't worry about it too much though. Different Horn African groups have been intermixing a lot. You'll find tons of clans with Oromo blood out there for example. But you should take other DNA tests just to be sure.
Nothing against Bantus but I’m like 3.2% West African. I’m also 13% Sudanese. Where did that also come from. I think 23andMe is skewed. My Auntie got 28% MENA while I got 13% MENA. On ancestryDNA I’m 40% MENA is that more accurate?It is fake. It is not trustworthy for Benadiris.
You only need Somalis+Bantus+Arabians+Persians+Pakistanis&Indians as references for yourself. Use wegene.com
Somali genes overlap with the Sudanese because Cushites came from North Sudan a few thousand years ago, E-M78 originated in Northern Sudan an is the most common paternal lineage in Somalis. So, probably again the algorithm is messing things up, perhaps due to low levels of samples.Nothing against Bantus but I’m like 3.2% West African. I’m also 13% Sudanese.

I also got roughly 1.0% Chinese.Nope, Benadiris aren't mixed with Ethiopians. I have looked into it.
The reason why they are scoring Habesha is that Somali+Arabian alleles will make algorithms think it is North Ethiopian or Eritrean.
A reference set without Habeshas will give Benadiris more accurate results. Those can be obtained on wegene.com
