    Go to your DNA results summary where you also find your ethnicity estimates on the left. On the right you will see a button "view all DNA matches". It will be interesting to know how many New Worlder matches you have.

Also the minor but still considerable (above tracelevel) amounts of Ivory Coast/Ghana + Benin togo already betray that this person is indeed only half Swahili.

    What i find interesting is that this half Swahili person shows no socalled "Africa North" at all. While you do show 4% in addition to your 3% Middle East. I am inclined to think that you inherited this socalled North African component by way of your Kikiyu side, representing some ancient and widespread Cushitic component for them.
    I was told that I have Middle Eastern ancestry through both of my two GGG grandfathers on both sides I think that's why I score an exact 7%. I'm interested if I'm a descendant of Ibn Battuta's Caravan/crew who reached and maybe settled in Mombasa. I was told that Mombasa has a big Algerian community too by my mums friend whose Algerian but born in Mombasa.

    Could the European Jewish that person scores be from the Portuguese Armada which settled in Mombasa, Lamu and Kilwa, I mean there were European Jews in Iberia right?

    And yes SE Bantu + Cameroon/Congo + some minor Middle East , some Swahilis even have East Asian and Iberian or European for those who come from he Comoros. I was told this by a tour guide in my Pemba Island visit.

    Are your matches limited to just one page or do you have several pages of AncestryDNA matches? I have seen the number of matches for several Africans now. And it's very interesting how some nationalities get many more pages than others. Obviously given Ancestry's customer database being mostly geared to Americans this will correlate with the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade patterns. Sofar from what i've seen:

    Liberia (Kru/Kpelle): 28 pages (each page has 50 matches i believe)
    Liberia (Kpelle, Grebo, Gola): 24 pages
    Nigeria (Igbo) : 14 pages
    Nigeria/Sierra Leone (Yoruba/Krio): 8 pages
    Uganda (Aringa/Kakwa): two single matches on 1 page

    I have one new result from a half Tanzanian, half Russian person, i don't know for sure but it seems that she might be (partially ) Swahili judging from the minor Asian and West Asian scores. You can see the breakdown on this page:

    It is indeed all due to only one of my still very minimal number of South African samples. It is a Coloured person who also has non-African admixture so i had to scale his African breakdown to 100%. His original amount for Senegal was 2% out of 41% African, and only at trace level.

    While i do not know anything further about his background i do know that the African origins of the Cape Coloured are quite diverse as the Dutch brought over slaves from not only southeastern Africa (Mozambique & Madagascar) but also at times from West & Central Africa. So that history might very well explain it. Coloured people are bound to show more diversity not only in their non-African amounts but also in their African breakdown.

    History of slavery and early colonisation in South Africa

    I have since added 2 new South African results though and their SE Bantu amounts are among the highest i have seen safe yours One of them has 94% Southeastern Bantu but i don't have a screenshot the other one has 78% and intriguingly also seems to have some diluted Portuguese lineage in addition to an also rather high Khoisan score of 11%.
