I also found this site helpful. You really need to sit and fiddle with it.
One tip, always open each page in a new window as sometimes it's hard to
find where you were.
I've also uploaded a GEDCOM file of my tree as they say that this is a good
way to help others find you and vice versa.
PS Do you think we should always add out GEDMATCH no with all

Subject: [Dyfed] DNA testing - Gedmatch - Admixture testing
Elaine64 asked "what is MDLP project"
All the major genealogical DNA testing companies give reports on "origins"
or "ethnicity" - known as admixture testing. They work this out by
comparison with "reference populations" - typically samples of people who
claim to come from a specific ethnic origin - eg by knowing that their
grandparents all lived within a short distance of one another. As all
genealogists know, this knowledge is not always correct!
Unlike the other testing companies, Gedmatch offers a choice of Admixture
tests, with different purposes. The Eurogenes set of tests is, not
surprisingly, focused on European origins, and might not be very helpful to
someone with say South east Asian roots.
I'm no expert, so I can only quote the result of my Google search:
This is a global calculator and attempts to break your results down into
different parts of the world. Its good as an overview, but if, for
example, you already know youre European, its probably unnecessary. Its
also heavy on ancient groups. The blog for this project is found here:
