    The lowests percentages are the more reliable!!!

  2. INTERESTINGLY during the VIKING TIMES THERE WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH Irish , british , german and northern european heritage invading& breeding in Portugal. SO it is pretty common to have their dna still in your blood.

  3. As I previously explained through collected genetical data and studies conclusions, the Portuguese carry the oldest human genome found in Europe, and even perhaps one the oldest in the world regarding modern humans. And they are still the only exclusively carrying this combination in their DNA. In fact, the natives from the region we call today Portugal, are far older than the Basques, older than the Bell Beaker culture and much older than Indo-European migrations. Today we share over 75% of the most common haplogroup found in Western Europeans, R1b. The other haplogroups of our genetic makeup are essentially from other groups that came to Iberia – Italics (Romans), Germanics (Visigoths, Suebi, Vandals), and Celts. The two smaller haplogroups in percentage that have origin in the East Mediterranean – less than 8% – that are generally misunderstood and associated to north african mediterranean "moors" or "jews", were in fact passed to Portuguese DNA during the early Indo European migrations and not by the later minuscule phoenician settlement in Southeastern Spain, nor by the jewish migration whom were expelled during the inquisition and didn't marry outside their ethnic circle, nor either by the moorish invasion whom also wouldn't marry non muslims and had to use the jizya tax massively since the vast majority of Iberian christians simply refused to convert to islam.
    So in that sense the typical traits of light brown dark brown hair, as well the higher concentration of melanin, are actually a manifestation of a much older genetic stock rather than a recent change in the past 1000 years with wars or invasions as many seem to wrongly believe. Other recent genetic studies also concluded that the earliest europeans were actually dark skinned with prominent caucasoid traits. Even the tallness factor is another manifestation of an old genetic code imprinted in Portuguese modern population, in this case inherited from the Cro Magnon. Portuguese are shorter in average than Spaniards or than western Europeans due to less admixture with Indo-Europeans who actually owe their height to Asian nomads from the steppe.

  4. Every autosomal (full ancestry – determines phenotype) DNA study has the Portuguese strongly clustering with Spaniards, French and N. Italians. There is also some closeness with the Swiss. The Portuguese are predominantly an Atlantic Facade population group. In addition, the ongoing DODECAD ancestry autosomal project has recorded European and West Asian (Anatolian) DNA affinities close to 90% (~ 80% European and ~ 7% Anatolian) for Portugal. Portuguese also have more than 36% N. European input, third highest in Southern Europe behind France (~ 50%) and Spain (~ 38%). One study actually has Portugal with more Balto-Finnic than Poland, 3.5% for the former and ~1.25% for the latter.

    As far as Haplogroups are concerned, check the Eupedia tables. Combined Y-DNA and mt-DNA shows a hugely dominant percentage of Western European Haplogroups. There are also some Balkanite and Anatolian (Y-DNA J2) markers. Near Eastern frequencies in total are rather minor.

    Alcacer do Sal, a fairly isolated small town, has historically been a socially ostracized community that contained slaves (blacks, N. Africans, Arabs mainly) and people with leprosy and contagious diseases. Consequently, its inhabitants were forced to practice strict endogamy over the ages. Every person in Portugal with any basic education knows about the unique history of this small town and how exceedingly different it is genetically from the rest of Portugal.

  5. "…Portuguese people have also maintained a certain degree of cultural and ethnic-specific characteristics since ancient times. The results of the present HLA study in Portuguese populations show that they have features in common with Basques and Spaniards from Madrid: a high frequency of the HLA-haplotypes A29-B44-DR7 (ancient western Europeans), and A1-B8-DR3 (Europeans) are found as common characteristics. Portuguese and Basques do not show the Mediterranean A33-B14-DR1 haplotype, suggesting a lower admixture with Mediterraneans; Spaniards and Algerians do have this haplotype in a relatively high frequency, indicating a more extensive Mediterranean genetic influence. The paleo-North African haplotype A30-B18-DR3 present in Basques, Algerians, and Spaniards is not found in Portuguese either. The Portuguese have a characteristic unique among world populations: a high frequency of HLA-A25-B18-DR15 and A26-B38-DR13, which may reflect a still detectable founder effect coming from ancient Portuguese, i.e., oestrimnios and conios…"

  6. It was discovered, not so long ago, that the Lusitanians, ancestors of the Portuguese, owned two unique genes that are not found anywhere else in the world, except in Portugal. A26-B38-DR13 is the most ancient gene of mankind and A25-BIS-DR2 is a very rare one also found only in Portugal and its descendants abroad. This was a discovery which brought a lot of attention in the world of genetics and racial studies. According to it, it was able to prove the Portuguese have the oldest genetic code in the world.
    Genetical differences between the Portuguese and the Mediterraneans proves that the Portuguese are not of Mediterranean origin:
    “A33B14-DR1 is found in Mediterraneans, but not in Basques or Portuguese, reflecting the relative lack of contact with Mediterraneans common to both Basques and Portuguese; these latter groups also share one of the highest frequencies of the Rh phenotype. A25B18-DR15 is only found in Portugal among Europeans; it is also observed in white North Americans and in Brazilians (Imanishi et al. 1992b). It is probably a marker for the ancient Portuguese people in Europe and for people of Portuguese descent in America. A26-B38-DR13 is a specific Portuguese marker not found in any other part of the world, and it probably existed in the first western Iberians. Therefore, Portuguese is a relatively distinct population among Iberians according to our HLA data. They seem not to have had a significant contribution to their genetic pool from paleo-North Africans (A30-B18) and Mediterraneans (A33-B14) on the one hand, and on the other hand they show two specific haplotypes, A25-B18-DR2 and A26-B38DR13. Portuguese people have also maintained a certain degree of cultural and ethnic-specific characteristics since ancient times. Portuguese and Basques do not show the Mediterranean A33-B14-DR1 haplotype, suggesting a lower admixture with Mediterraneans; Spaniards and Algerians do have this haplotype in a relatively high frequency, indicating a more extensive Mediterranean genetic influence. The paleo-North African haplotype A30-B18-DR3 present in Basques, Algerians, and Spaniards is not found in Portuguese either. The Portuguese have a characteristic unique among world populations: a high frequency of HLA-A25-B18-DR15 and A26-B38-DR13, which may reflect a still detectable founder effect coming from ancient Portuguese.”

  7. Do all of these DNA tests just say “Iberian Peninsula”? They don’t specify if your ancestors were from Spain vs. Portugal?

  9. Whats your haplogroup?

  10. I bet your a.fucking moor.from.the south or.from.madeira doc dave

  11. Whats up my fellow lusitanian. My father is from northern portugal, vila nova de gaia, near porto. My mother is from Cuba, but.primarily of spanish decent. My european was a little lower than yours at 97.6 percent, because I had 1.7 native american from my mom and 0.3 percent subsahaean. I got more italian 5.5 percent anand iberian was 47.9 percent. But it seems we mixed a little more with northern europeans. Im 17.1 percent northwestern european. I also used 23andme. The interestin this is I got zero north africa and.zero middleestern. I thought that would be there.
    United States born.

  12. My family was from cuba and im 91% european and 68% Iberian but it says Portugal. I never got to ask my dads family about where my great grandparents where from

  13. middle eastern and north africa is not a just statistic, that means one of your ancestor is arabian moor warrior. they are exist in your blood regardless its small percentage.

    Yo soy Iberico también hermano 😀 sub

  15. You're looking an Indian guy without no colour on skin to me!

  16. His little "statistics" are not just little. He should recognize that his results actually tell a story. Such as how north Africans invaded the Iberian peninsula and at a time the Iberian peninsula(Spain specifically) invaded North Africa. He should at least acknowledge that very obvious part of him instead of brush it off because it's not seen as favorable to him. Its obvious it bothers him but maybe I'm wrong lol

  17. Midnight says:

    Hey, you look seriously Native American

  18. Também vou fazer o teste!

  19. mss mss says:

    23andme is focused in European and East Asian ancestry and doesn't show your real ancestry but your most recent ancestry. I got with them 0% Middle East but oh surprise! i got between 4%-8% Middle East ancestry with all the other companies. I'm Spanish btw

  20. ttcostadc says:

    Meu deus.. the closed captioning is really bad.

  21. Pelos resultados que já vi de portugueses, és o mais ibérico. E o mais giro.

  22. A. Caeiro says:

    Hi, I have really liked what you´ve said about DNA tests.
    Who we are is much more than our biological markers, we are much more our culture, what we do, how we do things, etc That note is the proof that your a genuine portuguese, I mean it!
    Wish the best, all the love from Portugal <3

  23. Pluraliste says:

    With the test 23andme there is no surprises, it shows only recent ethnicity markers. Almost every person non mixed (parent from same ethnicity) tested with 23andme will be practically pure… Try ancestry, DNA land or gedmatch, compare your results and tell us.

  24. His clothing style's horrific and his hairs a mess , he's handsome though I guess, if you like the seriously Spanish type,
    just kidding boys ,sortof,
    but yeah he kept saying that he's -+1% trace MiddleEastern, WAfrican and Jewish are just "noise",
    no they're not just noise , they're a part of his anscestry and he shouldn't discount it or brush it off,
    we get that he's ethnically Euro and alot of Southern Euro at that,
    but again his trace region going from -+1% Irish, Scandinavian to Jewish and African are part of who his anscestors were,
    including his trace Native American anscestry/EAsian,maybe a Japanese person mozied over to the Iberia in the 1700's,
    some have, if that's what they say he has, then that's what he has ,nothing wrong with that.
