My parent's DNA flavour

Just playing around with my favourite GEDMatch admixture calculators, comparing the genetic distances and PCA positions of my mother, against my father.  However, my father's stats may be totally incorrect, as I am using a Gedmatch phased file, generated by removing my mother's DNA from my own, to represent him.  Therefore my father here is only represented by the half of my DNA that I inherited from him.  I'm aware that can give distorted results.

Conclusion

As I warned, clearly the file for my late father, that I have generated on GEDMATCH by phasing with my mother is unrepresentative, and probably not suitable for admixture use - otherwise he has African, Asian, Australian, even Native American ancestry, which is rather unlikely taking into account his family history.  However, with that in mind, I can deduce:

  • MDLP K16 sees my mother's DNA flavour as more German, and my father's flavour as more French.  
  • However, the two Eurogene calculators together see my mother's DNA flavour as more English / Dutch, and my father's as more German / Dutch.

Although based on a very unsafe file projected from my own DNA, my father's K15 PCA is interesting because it slides off down towards Tuscan, and even in the direction of Lebanese Druze.  It is probably just a coincidence, but Living DNA pretty much insists that I have around 9% Italian ancestry, matching particularly with Tuscany!  In addition, my Y-DNA L-SK1414 has been found (although several thousand years away) in a Lebanese Druze.

I wont make too much about it.  My own PCA is actually very close to that of my mother's, and shows no sliding towards the South East:
