Understanding Gedmatch Ancient Ancestry Results - Australian Aboriginal
« on: Friday 13 November 15 09:25 GMT (UK) »
I used the Gedmatch Ancient Ancestry Calculator on the provided settings and it came up with a 3% Australian Aboriginal match. I'm an Australian of European descent and wondered whether this means I might have a recent, ie last two centuries or so, indigenous ancestor or whether that simply indicates ancient genetic linkages?

I have been looking at my Ancient DNA and did a search and I found this. Interesting result.

Mine only show European ( with 2 American sites plus 2 South American sites) . My feeling is its a false result OR it is just a highlight of distant relative splitting off XX amount of years ago. ie my Clovis result may be linked to another prior to crossing into the US and not generally from any Northern American cross-back (if that makes sense)

Similar to your results ( if you are still around) you should have already found a much much closer result highlighting any 200 year NPE (non-paternal event)
