I am listed as 21 percent Finnish Uralic, which should be impossible given That my known ancestry comes from the Atlantic seaboard of Europe, from Scotland to Portugal with the vast majority coming from Western France and about 25 percent from England. I didn't even match Eastern European or Scandinavian, so how I lept across the Urals is a mystery. I do realize this is the BETA phase, but can anyone entire to guess what my story might be?

Followup: I consulted a Biology professor about this. He says that it is likely that it's my tiny percentage of American Indian DNA that is showing up here. I guess that means it is pulling my European results into Asia.
