This thread was super helpful in finding some other ways to get info on my AncestryDNA raw data. Thanks.
My DNA land results were as follows:

56% NOrthwest Europe
27% Northeast Europe (14% Finnish and 13% North Slav)
17% Southeast European (11% Balkan and 6.1% South/Centrral European).

I am interested in the Southeast Europe as the Balkans is somewhere I've never come across in my research. I'm assuming it's ancient DNA, though. I've uploaded to Gedmatch and MyHeritage as well.

Here is my Eurogenes K13, which I consider more accurate, and compared to my DNA results from Ancestry, FTDNA, Wegene and DNALand, are very similar. Definitely there is something wrong with MyHeritage.

Eurogenes K13
Population
North_Atlantic 19.97
Baltic 7.56
West_Med 17.63
West_Asian 2.81
East_Med 9.84
Red_Sea 3.16

Siberian 1.84
Amerindian 26.94
Oceanian -
Northeast_African 1.18
Sub-Saharan 9.08

Ah, let me guess everyone else is white in your family? Either way, all these different websites give a very askewed results that differ from each other like, for example according to Gedmatch my Scandinavian percentage is lower than what MyHeritage gave me. I will be honest though I can barely understand Gedmatch and their algorithms as well.

As per their results I am mostly Italian, from Tuscan. And I think they are almost right, my great grandparents are from San Remo, Italy.
If you already got your raw data from FTDNA or Ancestry is worth to try this new site. Is free and it belongs to Columbia University.
Does anyone know how to upload multiple DNA tests?

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - I have consent from a number of my family members to upload their DNA files/I have DNA files from all three of the companies, but I only have one email address. Is there anyway I can make multiple accounts with one email? (top)
A - We can currently handle a single genotype file per user/account as part of the consent process. But, if you are able to use a Gmail account, there is a trick that will allow you to create all your accounts using one email address. Say that your Gmail address is dna.land.user@gmail.com. To upload another family member (say your mother) to DNA.Land, create an account with the email dna.land.user+mom@gmail.com. Though it may look weird, DNA.Land will accept this as a valid email account. When we send the validation email to dna.land.user+mom@gmail.com, Google will redirect the message to YOUR account (dna.land.user@gmail.com). You can do that for as many genomes as you’d like, all under one Gmail account.

Adding my MyHeritage results here.

84.5% African:

65.5% West African (43.2% Nigerian, 19.5% West African, 2.8% Sierra Leonean)
16.2% East African (16.2% Kenyan)
2.8% Central African (No further labeling)

16.4% European:

13.8% East European (No further labeling)
.8% South European (Italian - HAHA, I can actually believe this!)

.9% American
.9% Central American (No further labeling)
__

I have done almost all of them. 23andMe, WeGenes, Genes For Good, MyHeritage, DNALand, AncestryDNA. I can say that the MyHeritage results are closest to Dr. McDonald's last interpretation that he gave me like 3-4 years ago.

So do you think MyHeritage is more accurate?

I honestly have no idea. It does match up closer to results that I got from another source a few years back, as I stated.

I am black American and I take into consideration things such as slavery, MGM, and my known family tree. I use these tools as such.

But to add to this thread, let me include my Eurogene 13 results from Gedmatch.

North_Atlantic 6.91
Baltic 2.31
West_Med 3.05

South_Asian 0.43

Sub-Saharan 79.33
