Your Population Finder results consist of up to four out of seven continental groups.
For each, the percentage of your genome that matches is shown.
Where possible, we list specific subgroups such as Basque and Bedouin or subregions
such as Western Europe.
The seven continental groups are based on genetic similarity and do not precisely
match geographical continents.
