Information about Project samples

All project participants are identified by their unique DOD code in the spreadsheet and barplots of the project. I understand, however, that some of them might be willing to reveal more details about themselves; some of them have already done this in various blogs and forums around the web.

As promised, I will never reveal any such information myself, but if you are a submitter to the project and want to put some information about your own ID, it is a good idea to do it in one place. This way, anyone who is interested in some individual's genetic makeup may look up the relevant information.

So, feel free to leave a comment, revealing as little or as much information about the ancestry and background of your ID as you are comfortable with. To reduce the clutter, only posts containing such information will be allowed.

Note: the comments section spans more than one page, so use the links to go back and forth between them.


  1. i am DOD075

    i'll put wut i told dienekes:

    Maternal Grandmother = Bengali Muslim, but 1/2 Uttar Pradesh Muslim (of likely West and Central Asian admix) Urdu speaker (immigrant from Delhi), 1/2 Bengali Muslim

    Maternal Grandfather = Bengali Muslim, originally of the Kayastha Bengali caste

    Paternal Grandmother = Bengali Muslim, but born a Bengali Brahmin Hindu (family converted when she was very, very young)

    Paternal Grandfather = Bengali Muslim, perhaps ancestry from Assam. Ancestry less clear, and rumors of "foreign" origin.

    My family is from Comilla, in eastern Bengal, and next to Tripura in India.

  2. Assyrians:
    DOD026, DOD027, DOD028, DOD037, DOD040, DOD095, DOD104, DOD134, and DOD135.

  3. I am DOD003

    I am fully Finnish.

    Mother's mother's lineage from Central Ostrobothnia, Finland.

    Mother's father's lineage from SW Finland and NW Finland including Finnish Lapland.

    Father's mother's lineage from Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland.

    Father's father's lineage from Finland Proper / Satakunta area, Finland.

    This is the data of my 2nd cousin on my father's mother's side.

    She is fully Finnish as well, but her ancestry is only northern Finnish as far as I can find.

    Is my mother's data.

    She has a similar multiple point ancestry in Finland to me.

    This is the genome of my mother's first cousin on her father's side.

    He is predominantly Finnish with a bit of Norwegian blend.

    Even his Norwegian folks spoke Finnish and they probably migrated from the area of Oulu in Finland to Sør-Varanger, Finnmark, Norway in the last couple of hundred years.

  4. I am DOD152

    These are approximations as I'm still working on my genealogy, but the figures as of now look like around 75% British Isle's derived, a little under 25% German (Swabia and the Rhine), the remaining minor percentiles are from France and Sweden (my Swedish ancestry might have some Finnish given my mtDNA matches).

    Most of my British Isle's ancestry is from my father, his ancestry is nearly exclusive British, the minor French (around 2% of my ancestry) comes from him.

    The New World regions of interest in my paternal genealogy are the Cumberland Gap and Ontario, Canada. Most of my paternal folks are British settlers (minor French) into the Cumberland Gap the deviation came with my great grandmother whose ancestry is exclusively from England (her family were 19th Century immigrants from England to Ontario, the places in England being Walsham le Willows, Suffolk and Andover, Hampshire), the Cumberland Gap settlers in my family were mostly Northern English with some ancestry from the Lallans, County Antrim, and Southeast England.

    My maternal ancestry was Deitsch originally, Swabian and Rhinelander Mennonites who came to Pennsylvania and then into the Midwest, when the families of my maternal great grandfather's split from the Mennonite community they married into non-Deitsch families, the one great grandfather having a wife who was half Potato Famine immigrants from County, Tyrone (they bear a Lallans surname though), one quarter English who settled in New Brunswick & Maine, and one quarter Deitsch, it is through her Deitsch ancestry that the Swedish came in as one of her ancestors from Germany was a Mennonite who took a Swedish wife.

    The other great grandfather married a wife who descends from WASP's and of the same family as former U.S. President Grover Cleveland.

  5. DOD097 - Wife's maternal Grandmother - 100% Sicilian - 31 Relatives - No known Jewish ancestry, but is a carrier of the Gaucher Disease allele, specific to Ashkenazi Jews - Has Italian relatives, some indicating distant North African and Spanish heritage, but also 3 Colonial US relatives, from Tennessee, which may be a link to the Melungeons, who may have been partly Sephardic Jews?! Using Ancestry Finder, and setting 4gp/5cm, am getting in order, US, Italy, Iran, France.

    I myself have mostly predicted relatives in the US South, mostly Protestant, some Quakers, some Catholics. Some identify as German-American, so I suspect minor Palatine German inheritance. I have some French and Swiss French relatives, so I also suspect some French Huguenot inheritance. Using Ancestry Finder, and setting 4gp/5cm, am getting in order, US, Ireland, UK, Canada, France, Ukraine, Switzerland, Denmark, Belarus, Australia.

    DOD098 - Father - 100% Irish - 340 Relatives - No known non-Irish ancestry - Relatives same as me, but additionally Eastern European relatives, including about 5 or so 100% Ashkenazi Jewish relatives. Using Ancestry Finder, and setting 4gp/5cm, am getting in order, US, Canada, Ireland, UK, Germany, Australia, Russia, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Belarus, Bahamas, Romania, Greece (Crete).

    DOD099 - Mother - 100% Irish - 336 Relatives - Some distant English and Norman ancestry - Relatives same as me. Using Ancestry Finder, and setting 4gp/5cm, am getting in order, US, Ireland, Canada, UK, Norway, Hungary, Denmark. Belgium, Australia.

  6. DOD086 and DOD087 are my parents, both of the "American_White" category.

    DOD086 = Father: Mostly British and German ancestry, some 17th century French Huguenot and Dutch. Y-haplogroup G2a3b1a, MTDNA H1

    DOD087 = Mother: Mostly British and German ancestry, some 19th century Swiss and Danish, and 18th century French Huguenot. Family legend mentions 17th century Native-American ancestry (Virginia). MTDNA H3

  7. DOD073

    All four grandparents born in United States
    Paternal ancestry Irish
    Maternal ancestry German

    Glenn Allen Nolen

  8. DOD139 - North Italian from both sides since the middle of 16th century.

  9. DOD076

    White American

    Father = 1/2 Bavarian German, 1/2 mix of Dutch, English, French

    Mother = 1/4 French, 1/4 English, 1/2 Norwegian

  10. DOD006 is 50% Italian, Bologna & 50% Jewish, Grodno, Belarus.

  11. DOD083 is 100% southern Polish.

  12. I'm Dod055 and my mother is Dod056

    Father's ancestry:

    37.5% English (Suffolk/Kent/London areas)
    37.5% Mainland Scottish (Glasgow/Stirling/Huntly areas)
    25% Western Scottish Isles (Isle of Mull)

    Mother's ancestry:

    25% - Perthshire Scotland
    25% - Eshaness, Northmavine, Shetland (some ancestral lineages had patronymic surnames before 1800)
    6.25% - Wales
    31.25% - England

    I'm not sure how the "North African" in my analysis can be explained - my mother doesn't have it, and I doubt it came from my Father. there are no gaps in his genealogy and he is exclusively of Scottish and English ancestry.

    For more information, see here:

  13. I am DOD021.

    My paternal ancestors were Sicilian, almost all from Mezzojuso. This is one of the main Arberesh (Italo-Albanian) towns in Sicily. Neither of my paternal grandparents were Arberesh, but I do have a couple of Arberesh surnames in my family tree from the 1700s. So I may be about 1/32 or 1/64 Arberesh.

    My maternal ancestors were southern Italian, mainly from Basilicata and Puglia. I do have a 100% Greek estimated 4th cousin in Relative Finder; I suspect he connects to one of my lines from Bari province. Also, I have an estimated 5th cousin who is a Bosnian/Serb mix from Dubrovnik; this cousin may also connect to me through a Bari line.

    My paternal haplogroup, from Mezzojuso, is R1b-L48, so probably originally from northern Europe. A proven 2nd cousin, once removed in Relative Finder has the maternal haplogroup U1a3; this is the haplogroup of a great-grandmother from Mezzojuso, since the 2nd cousin, once removed is a maternal line descendant of the great-grandmother. My maternal haplogroup, from Matera in Basilicata, is T2e, which is generally thought to be a Neolithic haplogroup in Europe.

  14. I'm DOD131 and 100% Finnish. 23AndMe relative finder gives me cousins all over Finland so I guess I'm quite "average" Finn.

  34. This comment has been removed by the author.

  35. FFD002 breakdown:

    Paternal Grandfather:
    born in Silesia, German Empire. Surname is a German spelling variant of a Polish one.

    Paternal Grandmother:
    Born in Silesia, German Empire. Maiden name is usualy found in Southwest Germany, Northeast France and Switzerland.

    Maternal Grandfather:
    Born in Eastprussia, German Empire. His fathers mother was possibly Lithuanian but he is not sure. But she spoke a forreign tounge he said.
    His surname is one that is typical for Hussite (protestant) refugees from Bohemia (West-Czechia), that fled the country between 1500 and 1700 because they had problems with the catholic leadership of Bohemia.

    Maternal Grandmother:
    Born at a distance of 2km from the German/Netherlands border inside the German Empire. Her maidenname spreads all along the border region from the Northsea Coast til Belgium and means "Farmyard" in "Old lower Saxon" tounge.

I also have a southern Italian great-grandmother from Bari, Puglia, Italy and a more distant Danish great-great grandfather from Schleswig who contributes his surname, Y chromosome(the more typically central European/Italic R-U152) and autosomal DNA.

    mclust on MDS outs me every time and places me in the CEU-centered cluster due to the predominant NW European component of my ancestry.

  45. I am FFD028. I'm adopted but my non=ID info is Mother French/Irish, Putative father German (Mix).

    I have very few matches on FTDNA but those I have are English, Irish, French, Swedish, German, and Finnish from most to least.

  46. FFD040

    Maternal side is known to be Ashkenazi from Belarus and Lithuania.

    Paternal side (based on most likely candidate for birthfather) is colonial American from North Carolina. Origins (pre-1700) appear to be mostly England, with the balance being Scotland and Germany.

  47. DOD 172 Swedish on both sides for at least three generations.

  48. I am FFD011, and am 3/4 British Isles, having ancestry from all four countries - England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. My direct maternal line is Irish, and direct Paternal line German. The German ancestors came from Neidersachen (North Germany) and Bavaria. I am in Y-haplogroup E1b1b1 (tested by FTDNA), with the majority of 11/12 matches from Greece, Bulgaria, and Slovakia. But the strongest matches 36/37, 25/25 24/25 all trace their roots to the Catalonian region of Spain.

  49. I am FFD049 and now also DOD241.

    To my knowledge my ancestry is English (25%), Irish (12.5%), Swiss-German (12.5%), German (50%, one grandparent believed Jewish).

  50. 23andMe: DOD242
    I am also FFD002

    See my explanation in a post above.

  51. FFD016:
    Maternal Ashkenazi Jewish
    Paternal Austrian German

  52. DODO29 Mixed-Roma A little bit more than Half-Roma and little bit less than Half-Slavic(Serbian+1/16Russian)

  53. DOD010; fully North Iranian.
    Paternal - Azeri-Iranian from Azerbaijan province, paternal ancestor originally from Caucasus
    Maternal - Persian from Tehran

  54. DOD248 - Born in Yorkshire, England. One Grandfather was part Irish. All relatives born in the UK for at least several hundred years.

    DOD249 - Born in Swansea, South Wales of mostly English ancestry, but also some Welsh and Scottish ancestors. All relatives born in the UK for at least several hundred years. Prior to 1066, most documented ancestors were French Norman. Also has documented distant Italian and Spanish ancestors.

    DOD250 - German/Prussian ancestry. One line lived in Poland another in Russia and another were Transylvanian Saxons. All spoke German.

    I can be reached via the 23andme ID LKPRSB. Samples are my father (248) mother (249) and husband (250).

  55. DOD245: I am approximately 50% African (West). My paternal grandfather was Ashkenazi. Also I have some Native American ancestry on my mother's side. The remainder must be Northern European--English likely.

  56. DOD252 Brazilian. Colonial Brazilian Founders. We are basically the descendents of the first Portuguese Conquistadores/Colonists established in the Colonial Era - 1500-1700's. We have distant Amerindian and African contributions and in the last 150 years we also had some European immigrant contributions from what would become Germany, Italy and other parts of Europe. We are a big, plural, coalesced population of several tens of millions present in the American Continent since 1500 and I think we have a unique genetic profile in terms of a visible set of proportions, as unique as our language, Brazilian Portuguese, only found in Brazil ! A Colonial Brazilian can have some variation in the numbers but the proportion is the same, only the quantity will variate but we have contributions from West Asia, Northwest Africa, South Europe, Northeast Asia, Southwest Asia, North Europe, West Africa, East Africa and South Asia (I don`t have points only in the East Asian box, but there are millions of Japanese descendents in the country) !


  57. #DOD257 Maureen Higgins Markov is mostly Irish of all Irish born great grandparents. Some Eastern and African showing on Decodeme. Can be reached on either 23andme by name or decodeme by name.

  58. DOD246, Portuguese, full Portuguese ancestry to the 5th generation. All my 4 grandparents are from central Portugal.

    There is probable Sephardic ancestry in the paternal line since my surname, which is quite rare in the region, is the same as a prominent Sephardic family's in my father's home town, and there have been rumours about it for generations. They left in the 17th or 18th century mostly to Amsterdam under increasing persecution by the Inquisition, also to London, Livorno and Salonika, where the surname is documented in local Portuguese-speaking communities. My branch probably converted.

    I do have a small additional component of west asian + south-west asian ancestry for Portuguese, with typical North African...

    Don't know where small excess of South Asian came from. Portuguese Empire connection? Gypsies?

    Impressed how my genotype illustrates my country's history...

  59. dod89, 90 ,91 are Punjabi Jatts ( unrelated )
    From the Jhaj, Gill(Shergill) , Sandhu Tribe respectively.

  60. DOD272 - Ashkenazi

    All eight of my great grandparents were Ashkenazi, born in eastern Europe. On my mother's side, we know they came from Galicia and thought of themselves as Austrian Jews. On my father's side there's less information and some conflicting stories. They came from several places in the Russian Pale.

  61. DOD278: Colonial American background. Paternal grandparents both approximately 50% German, 50% Scots-Irish. Maternal grandmother approx 50% German, 50% Scots-Irish. Maternal grandfather's ancestry 35% German, 35% Scots-Irish, 30% unknown. Small amount of African admixture shows on Ancestry Painting, but no genealogical paper trail of African ancestors has yet been found.

  62. DOD279:

    100% Norwegian back to ab 1600, 7-8 generations (or more) through traditional genealogy.

    Ab 60 % of these are from the southern part of Møre og Romsdal county - area from Ålesund to Geiranger.

  71. DOD301 is me. My family are Australian colonial, all pre 20th century.

    Sometimes you hear the term Anglo-Celtic to describe the typical Australian colonial mix. In my case I know all the immigrants and I am >2/3 English, >10% Irish, 5% Scottish, and the rest from Wales and Norway. (Some of the English are thought to have had Welsh roots, are some of the Irish may have had Scottish or English roots etc. so I make it approximate.)

    Paternal haplogroup = T-M70 (T1a1*)
    Maternal = K1a(3a)

  81. DOD311

    My background is Ashkenazi Jewish on all sides.

    There are those who claim that my FTNDA YDNA results may indicate a distant Sepharadi paternal ancestor on that line who emigrated to Eastern Europe, but this is highly speculative as TMRCA estimates are not clear.

    Not much surprise in the Middle East (and particularly arab) component.

    The surprising part is in that Northeast Asian component (even if very little)!!

    My grandparents are Belgian. Out of my 8 great-grandparents, 4 were Flemish (Antwerp, Leuven and Hasselt areas), 2 from Brussels, and 2 from Wallonia (Namur and Liege). If I go further in the past (9 generations), my ancestry spreads out to Northern France, Southern Netherlands (very near the Belgian border) and Germany, and even one ancestor from the Czech Republic.

    Since Belgium is right in the middle of the border between North and South Europe (for me North is where Germanic languages are spoken, and south is where Romance languages are spoken), I guess I can say I have a mixed Latin/Germanic ancestry :-)

    I am of Colonial American descent. Paternal lines go back to John Alden and Pricilla Mullins, English, another to Johan Anderson and Christina, Swedish and Finnish. Other lines lead to Ireland. Y DNA most closely matches to the area of Penza, Western Russia. Mitochondrial DNA leads back to Southern Finland. Several matches on 23andMe's Relative Finder and Ancestry Finder are from Finland.

  133. Dodecad ID : DOD464.

    Ancestry : South Asia/the Indian sub-continent.
    Paternal Side : Iyengar Brahmins of the Vadagalai sub-sect who trace their lineage to a town known as Tanjavur/Tanjore in Tamil Nadu. It was historically part of the Chola heartland. Their Gotra is Vadula, which in turn makes it my own. Father’s maternal side was from Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu. They belonged to the Kashyapa Gotra.

    Y-DNA : G2a

    Maternal Side : Hebbar Iyengars, who are Iyengars from Karnataka, South Western India; once again of the Vadagalai sub-sect or distinction. Mother's paternal lineage traces back to a place known as Kithane, near Hassan district (again in Karnataka). Their family belonged to the Srivatsa gotra, seen as Srivastava in Northern India among castes such as the Kayasthas. My maternal grandmother, great grandfather and great grandmother were all from Tumkur, Karnataka. The same great grandmother’s father seems to have been an Iyengar from Coorg or Kodagu, Karnataka.

    mtDNA : HV

    Note - ALL my eight great grandparents belonged to the Vadakalai sub-sect of Iyengars. Wikipedia has an article of questionable reliability, but still worth a read -

    My father was of British descent. My GGG Grandfather arrived from Britain with his family to Ontario some time during the 1850's. My mother is of Spanish Berber descent that settled in the Caribbean half a millennia ago. Considering I have many Sephardic surnames I expected to have some SW Asian autosomal but have none. Looking at the east and north Asian in my autosomal, which looks like that of the Churvash, makes me think that portion is more of a Siberian extraction rather than Amerindian as other analysis have concluded. My western and eastern African components are similar to that of the Berbers, yet my South Asian component is similar to that of the Syrians. I find it to be quite an interesting and cosmopolitan Eurasian mixture.

    I am 100% French since the 16th century.
    Since then, 99% of my ancestors lived in a small area (the size of New York) 100km west of Geneva.
    Previously, due to the proximity of the Swiss territory, this one was occupied by Celts.
    My region was part of Celtic Gaul, the Celtic La Tene, in the Swiss territory ,is not very far .
    It has been a place of passage on the Rhône - Rhine axis
    Julius Caesar pushed his army into Gaul in 58 BC, on the pretext of assisting Rome's Gaullish allies against the migrating Helvetii to the west of France.
    Many Roman soldiers and slaves from the Roman Empire were handled in my area during the Gallic War. It is not surprising that my Y haplogroup is G2a3a1 (Origin: Anatolia, Turkey?).My mt haplogroup is J1c3c.
    The Burgundians were an East Germanic tribe which may have emigrated from mainland Scandinavia.
    The Burgundians migrated westwards and settled in the Rhine Valley.Then, by the mid 5th century were resettled in my region .
    Since the 8th century, this area has been calm, the various invasions being completed.
    It is for these reasons that the ethnic French person is really a mixture of many different groups, namely Germanic, Celtic, and Roman populations.
