I used AncestryDNA helper chrome extension to see more information about my matches on Ancestry particularly the frequencies of the ethnicities that came up in my results. I put together a chart of mum's and my matches. I only included the areas that were in our results. It takes quite a few hours for it to scan all the matches.

Mine

15958

Mum's

15959

How did you do that? Is it difficult to do? I'm not very tech savvy .

Nah not difficult just did it in excel. Made a table with ethnicities in one column and number of matches in second. Highlighted it and clicked recommended charts.

Using libreoffice. Wouldn't have a clue how to make a table. Basically clueless when it comes to spreadsheets and how to use them. I think making a chart is out the question for me . I'm not that bright when it comes to such things.

You did a good job with your chart.

Thanks for doing that. I notice you have many more matches than me . I have 250 pages of matches in total. Not sure whether I did the right thing. I downloaded matches and then sorted by ethnic regions.

That does seem quite low for the amount of pages you have... I only have 117 pages of matches

I clicked on download matches then transferred the csv file to libreoffice. From there I sorted by ethnic region and noted the number of matches for each region. I had 12413 matches in the spreadsheet.

I think I know what's happened there then. Your numbers only include ethnic regions whereas mine is both ethnic regions and trace regions :) I did only include the areas that were in my ethnicity report though. If I included all areas in the chart it would be very different.
