Greek category changed to Greek+South Italian in my results. Haven't noticed anything else different.

Do these update for people that uploaded raw data from 23andMe or Ancestry to get My Heritage results?

If they just renamed Scandinavia to England, Wales and NW Europe they'd be pretty accurate for me. For now they've assigned to me ~60% Scotland&Ireland and ~40% Scandinavia.

Did they ever correct the 1-2% Nigerian that incorrectly was assigned to many Europeans?

I still hope they'd release ethnicity update as well- for example the old version gives me 0.0 % eastern europan while ancestry gives me 22% as well as living DNA. Now with the Eastern genetic group it makes much more sense but still 0.0 EE.

I've gotten the groups, didn't have to do any trickery, they just appeared on login. Since some aren't seeing it my guess is they're just going through and updating still?

41913

Editing to add: An update to ethnicity estimate to go along with this would be good. I have a few French groups in their results now, but no French in the actual ethnicity estimate.

Like the others my Ethnicity Estimates haven’t changed. Although, they did give me three Genetic Communities.

41915


UK and Ireland

Southern USA

French settlers in Northeastern USA and in Canada (Quebec and Ontario)

While they got the area right, the settlers weren’t French. They where English Quakers who later sided with the Loyalists and moved to York (Toronto) after the Revolutionary War.
The rest were later immigrants to New York (mid 1800s) from England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany & Sicily.


Mine is from an upload that according to them should warrant an upgrade. Whenever it comes.

Thanks, now there is a red "new" button next to the ethnicity estimate tab but even the graphics haven't been updated for mine yet. I don't see the groups.

You think it could be that I uploaded from 23andme not with kit? Or they are planning to update my ethnicities first? Or I'm not on premium?

I want to thank you guys for convincing me not to delete my results - I got a genetic group which I hoped for. What I'm afraid of, however, is that the update will only be on the genetic groups and not on the ethnicity estimate.

Finally got just genetic groups...
The non-Ashkenazi ethnicities didn't get any groups which I expected since I don't have any real non-Ashkenazi in recent generations, before the mid-1700s for sure.
For Ashkenazi all the kits in my family get 4-6 groups, the high confidence ones are "more accurate" but they all overlap to the point where it is almost meaningless.

which groups and at what confidence?

High Confidence: Poland, Ukraine, Russia and Romania (the only high confidence one for all 6 kits I have, seems to represent our central to SW Ukraine region best),
Eastern and Central Europe, mostly Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus and Russia (high confidence for 3 of my 6 kits)

Medium Confidence: Eastern and Central Europe, mostly Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus and Russia (medium confidence for the other 3 of my 6 kits), Poland, Hungary, Germany and Austria (for 3 out of 6 kits, particularly my mother and maternal grandparents but not me or my father's two kits, which doesn't seem to make much sense), Poland, Germany, Austria and Ukraine (medium confidence for 2 out of 6 kits, for one of my dad's kits and my mother's kit, seems to be no rhyme or reason to that either)

Low Confidence: Poland, Germany, Austria and Ukraine (the other 4 out of 6 kits), Poland, Hungary, Germany and Austria (the other 3 out of 6 kits), Central and Eastern Europe, mostly Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Netherlands, Germany, Austria and England (2 kits, just my mother and grandmother, such a big region I'm not sure if it means anything), Eastern Europe, mostly Poland, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Ukraine (all 6 kits, all low confidence, not sure why, it makes more sense for my family than some of the other groups), Eastern Europe, mostly Lithuania, Poland and Belarus (just one of my dad's kits, seems to be Litvak-like in distribution? I know my dad's grandmother is from Nikolaev Oblast, but they lived in a shtetl distinct for its German Jewish migrants, across the Buh from a larger city that was specifically known for its community's Litvak origins, so my older relatives always insisted that side only had German Jewish and some local Ukrainian Jewish, no Litvak. Also only one of my dad's kits gets this community, the other one doesn't. Maybe if I can get my paternal grandmother tested I can find out more, or maybe it just doesn't mean anything.)
