Aug 05, · Anyone know what "utahn-white_genomes" means? This is showing up at my Harappaworld at Gedmatch. Couldn't you ask the people you paid to do the evaluation, or are they off for the weekend? I tried google and got some understanding of what it means. On the face of it I'd guess you are of Mormon decent. Also, exactly does utahn-White (genomes) mean? Some of the Population (source) names are quite clear to me be some are not. Is there a good site that can explain exactly what some of these "names", abbrevations, acronyms really mean.

Also thanks for the definition of utahn-white. I still have a long way to go in understanding the meaning of a lot of the techno-speak. Your patience is appreciated!! Three quarters of my ancestry is from the British Isles, the remaining quarter from Germany - so all Northwest Europe. In PF it came up So it appears that Orcadian is a stand-in for Northwest Europe.

The distance is a measurement of how good the "fit" is between your results and the population named. The lower the distance, the better the fit. You could also regard it as indicating the confidence the program has in the result it gave you. In general, a distance of 1. Anything higher than that indicates that you have an unusual combination what does utahn- white mean DNA that the program finds hard to fit with any single population.
It probably indicates that you have a lot of admixture from various populations. All rights reserved. Yes No. OK Cancel.

Remember me. Log in. Forgot password or user name? Confusion and dissapointment with Population Finder. Posts Latest Activity Photos. Page of 2. Filtered by:. Previous 1 2 template Next. I received my family finder results a couple of weeks ago, and I must say I am overall dissapointed with the population finder results. They seem to be all over the place and not very accurate. For example: I know for a fact that I am mostly of Spanish descent, however in my results I do not show any "Spanish" whatsoever, even though "Spanish" happens to be one of the specific populations in Population Finder.
I have sent my results to Dr. McDonald, and his results seem to be more accurate, make much more sense, and are more professionally done. How accurate can the population finder program be when it can't distinguish between Russian and Native American, or North African Berber and Sub Saharan Mandenka for example?
These are completeley different populations and peoples! I know that FTDNA is currently working to add more populations, but it seems that they need to do much more than that to make these results accurate. Tags: None. Originally posted by DannyV78 View Post. Comment Post Cancel. Ive been looking at gedmatch. I'll keep trying and see if I can figure it out. I think virtually everyone is dissatisfied with PoplulationFinder. This morning, I finally looked more closely into GEDmatch, after a friend helped me with the raw data.
It was enjoyable using the different models, oftentimes receiving similar results. Even though most of the groups are still broad and general, I was far more satisfied with those results than I was with what PopulationFinder gave me. I really wonder if the science of population finder tests is really there?
I mean in general. My PF results can be seen in my signature. As you can see I would have practically no clue where my ancestors were from if that is all I had other than European.

Danny, my wife who is Nicaraguan, got very similar results and we were confused as well until she ran it by Dr. You have to subtract some of this percentage and add it to the NA and what's left is your Spanish.
The North African is probably right on the money, I haven't met anyone with Spanish ancestry that doesn't have about a quarter Moro.
It's been the closest to Dr. McDonald's results for my family Cuban and my wife's. Last edited by ahernandez ; 13 June , PM. For Dr. However I don't know if those are actual results from my DNA or just an "estimate" of my European background since in my E-mail to him I stated that I was of mostly Spanish-descent.
I have uploaded my data to gedmatch and the results I see there seem to be much more accurate. I think FF needs to re-evaluate what they are showing or don't show anything at all until they are sure that their product is accurate. It made some sense to me because my mother's main branch is Eichelberger; with some Ashkenazi.
The family lore is Germany but we can't back it up yet. I however had a 'curve ball' for him: my father's line is Cavazos, not the original spelling - this family came over from Spain and hit Mexico.
Many believe the founding father of this line, was a Gabriel Cabasso - an Italian Sephardi Merchant circa 's. The good doctor said the amount of Mayan I have caused him issues when running his Jewish test that he has His results for me showed some Moor not surprising at all. It hate to ask this and the answer may be obvious, but I have not been able to find an explanation for the part of the Harappa report for Single Population Sharing as to the meaning of distance.
At the expense of sounding completely ignorant, what exactly does Distance in this report mean? Also, exactly does utahn-White genomes mean?
Some of the Population source names are quite clear to me be some are not. Is there a good site that can explain exactly what some of these "names", abbrevations, acronyms really mean. I see so many of you out there throwing around all these shortcuts expressions and I am completely oblivous as to what you are saying. Any help or a push in the right direction would really be appreciated.
