So in the images in my last post about GEDmatch you may have noticed that my Dad has less Mediterranean, Siberian, and Southwest Asian than I did. Perhaps you are wondering if there is a way to see what I got from my mother? Separating what you got from which parent is called phasing and you need to have at least one parent tested and uploaded to use this function at GEDmatch. The Genetic Genealogist has a good explanation of phasing in this blog post – http://www.thegeneticgenealogist.com/2012/06/07/gedmatch-com-adds-phasing-tool/
Here is what I got from my mother although GEDmatch cautions that the phased data may not be all that accurate.
Eurogenes 12b does not have as many Northern breakouts but does include Finnish which is of interest since Dad has several Finnish matches so I collected all the Finnish percentages. As you can see Mom had some too and Shipley got more than I did:
|Kitty from her Dad||3.94%|
|Kitty from her Mom||2.28%|
|Shipley from his Dad||7.06%|
|Shipley from his Mom||5.59%|
Perhaps the Finnish is again from our possible Sammi heritage?
Here is what Shipley got from our Mom:
And what he got from Dad:
An explanation of this admix calculators in on this page on the Eurogenes blog. You can also get GEDmatch to show you your mixture by chromosome and also phased by chromosome. Here are the by chromosome picture of what we each got from Dad
and here is Kitty:
