    Default Does MyHeritage have a bug with Finnish matches?

    My grandma has 504 matches from Finland and most are ethnic Finns.
    Is this a common bug?

    I doubt you would be able to ascertain whether that was a relatively common bug from this forum a lone but it seems doubtful. It is merely anectdotal but my number 1 is the USA , 2 is the UK and 3 Australia. Seems legit being that I rank in as mostly WASP according to the website i.e 40.1% ,English 35.7%, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh, 22.5% Scandinavian and the odd rest central Asian. Think about if you are a mix of English, Irish/Scottish/Welsh, and Scandinavian that is basically English or Scottish more or less in the very rough sense of the word (Scandinavian stuff can be found in parts of Scotland and Northern England). I get 1,037 matches from the UK I also get 3,444 matches from the USA but America is bigger and is not an ethnicity.

    Ion propably isnt finnish descent in any way though and neither am I. Having the Anglosphere as top matches isnt uncommon even for people from eastern europe. Seems like a bug to me.

    Definitely not, it's way too far for it to be possible. But I am wondering why it happens in some results.
    My grandpa and mother don't have this issue for example, whereas myself, brother and father do but the number of matches is significantly lower (50-70).

    I knew MyHeritage had a bug with assignment of Nigerian percentages in Ethnicity Estimates, but it seems that there are issues with some of the matches too.
