Comparing Admixtures of Siblings and of Parent and Child(ren)
Using the results from the same company Judy used, I created a table.
|Western and Central Europe||18%||100%||73%||15%|
Let me make a quick note. The niece is the daughter of "Brother2." Is it not interesting that he is 100% of Western and Central European ancestry, but that she only has 15% rather than the expected 50%? She has rather strong British Isles ancestry.
I seem to have missed out on the Western and Central European ancestry, but I have a high percentage of "Asia Minor." I have a rather high percentage of Scandinavian ancestry according to this estimate, but only one brother shares any of that with me, and it apparently came from my mother's side of the family.
I decided to compare the admixtures at another site, but unfortunately I cannot include Brother2 in these admixture results as he only tested at the one company.
|Europe East||4%||< 1%|
|Europe West||< 1%||9%|
|African Southeastern Bantu||1%|
|Africa North||< 1%|
Overall these results seem to be a little less erratic than the earlier ones, but differences still exist. I find the differences between testing companies fascinating. I'm the only one who has tested with 23 and Me so I cannot determine how different admixtures are between siblings and/or parents.
Admixture remains the least reliable part of the DNA test. It's fun to see, but one should not rely too much on the results returned.
