Romany autsomal DNA
« on: Monday 07 August 17 16:48 BST (UK) »
Just wondered if anyone with little or some known Romany ancestry has had an autosomal DNA test and would be willing to share there results?  I think there have been similar threads on this site but no real answers.
Thanks   :D

Hi,
I have yet to solidly confirm my Romany DNA (small amounts of South Asia and Balochistan) but this might be of interest to you
(Not sure if you're supposed to post threads from other websites but its from a genetics website not genealogy, so maybe it's ok ???http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?4884-Do-I-(or-my-father)-have-some-gypsy-roma-ancestry-Second-opinion/page3

It would be good if someone could set up a DNA comparison of people with confirmed Romany ancestry and others who just suspect (anyone let me know if someone already has! as most of the groups I've seen are only for people who are already confirmed Romany)

I have had my DNA tested and have gypsy ancestors (Gray/Elliott family).

 :) thank you all for the replies. Im intrigued to see if people with some Romany ancestry are showing Eastern European, Middle East and Caucus percentages on ancestry and FTDNA. I have uploaded my results to gedmatch and there's a small percent of south Asian dna.

FTDNA have me as 97% British, and the rest made up of South Asian, Eastern Europe and Middle East.

Here is my GEDmatch mdlp test resuts using myAncestryDNA test raw data. Im told i have Kale/Romanichal ancestors with surnames like Wood, Baxter, Hicks, Wallingsford etc, and the south central asian seems to support this. On Ancestry dna neither the asian or native american dna shows up. I dont know enough about these dna tests to say why that is.

In the ancestryDNA faqs/info. It says

'Trace Regions are regions where the estimated range includes zero and does not go above 15%, or where the predicted percentage is less than 4.5%. Since there is only a small amount of evidence that you have genetic ethnicity from these regions, it is possible that you may not have genetic ethnicity from them at all. This is not uncommon,...'

It's probably best to take the low per cent results with a pinch of salt or even ignore them altogether.
