    23&me confuses cause and effect. They give you Omsk oblast in Eastern Europe. First, this is actually not Eastern Europe, but Asia, in southern Siberia. And then when you Google Germans and Omsk oblast, you get : in Western Siberia, in the prewar period, a larger part of German population lived in the Omsk oblast (59800 people)... No wonder. Some of your relatives were probably sent to Siberian Gulags...

    This. But Podlaskie on the other hand is real because he has a Masurian ancestor.

    And also I think that his previous 21% Eastern European score was more accurate.

    If he tests his parents and phases with them, he will probably get back his 21%.

    It can be true, but... All Polish regions are fake for me, I don't have known Polish ancestors at least until mid of XIX century, while 23&me gives me Poland. Of course, Masovia is number 1. I understand that there have been massive migrations from eastern territories to Warsaw, that's the only way I can explain it.

    Maybe. I am still not a fan of 23&me. They can only see that I am Eastern European.
    P.S. I have added the last sentence about Siberian gulags a bit later.

    23andme is good for the regions, they get close to accurate

    I don't know what happened with you but that is a option

    But many Poles in East Galicia and in Volhynia were of Masovian origin, maybe due to this?

    BTW:

    I score Moscow Oblast and also I have no idea why, probably confusion of cause and effect.

    In Poland I get Lesser Poland as number 1. which is also wrong, should be Greater Poland.

    I used to score Lviv Oblast but they removed it in one update, now I do not score Ukraine.
