This is what I get (all recent ancestry in the UK). John

North West European 83%
Balkan 13%
Kalash 3.2%
Ambiguous 1.2%

I've never had "Kalash" before. :) John

Of course I had to look. The lost children of Alexander the Great ( probably not) :) What could be the connection I wonder, if any? John

I've been looking further into Kalash etc.
This may just be silly speculation but my map of "matches" seems to relate quite closely to the Macedonian Empire. I wondered why I had a match in North Africa, but it looks like this is around Libya which I understand was part of the Macedonian Empire, then you have the speculative link between Alexander the Great and the Kalash. This can't be pure coincidence can it?
I haven't a clue as to how I might have these genetic connections (only UK ancestry found so far). If I am way out on this, please correct me. :) John
