How did you get 4 percent "Baluchi Punjab"?

Basically thats Pakistan/northwest India.

Actually I think I know how that coulda happened. Some of your ancestors might be Rom (ie Gypsies).

The Gypsies originated in the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent, and migrated westward into the Middle East. And entered Europe via the Byzantine Empire about 1000 years ago, and of course reached Britain centuries ago bringing their Indian DNA with them. So you might be part Gypsy.

I'd love to get a 23andme done but my mother thinks it'll be a waste of time considering I already know much of my ancestry.

I can understand where you might get Jewish and gypsy DNA from as a British person, but Amazonian?! 8O

My known ancestry at 3gt level is 100% British (50 English 31 Scottish 19 Irish, though a smidgin of the English might be Welsh).
Living dna which breaks your British ancestry down into regional areas has me as British isles 100%.
It's fascinating to get these exotic admixtures but most, if not all, of them are bunkum or at least at the levels stated.

I am very interested,despite knowing the likely outcome. It is something more definitive than sketchy family trees. It's more of a personal statement of the genetic puzzlers we exist in.

My My heritage dna results are in. Mostly British and Irish as expected. That very small amount of Native American(or similar) has turned up again.

Dad researched our geneology in the Seventies, and published a little book. Went back to American Revolutionary War times.

So one of these new fangled DNA testing services would be the logical next step to take it back further I suppose.

Devilkisses started a thread about her DNA test a year or two ago. Surprised that you havent heard from her on this thread.
