My ancestry results are different from the ancestry results I got from another company.

  • Updated

Companies that provide similar services have their respective databases based on different populations. The difference in the database creates the difference in the genetic markers detected to analyze your ancestry information. Even if all companies used the same database, the algorithms to calculate the ethnic similarity would differ, which leads to the difference in the results.
