Does that not match what you know about your ancestry?

So so. It's pretty mixed.

Can you give any clues to us, what fails to impress you? What disappoints you about those results? In what way your ancestry is mixed according to your known family history? How it differs from your results?

Something I noticed. I was getting A LOT of Slavic matches but as they added more some disappeared cold turkey. Then I started to get Mid Eastern matches. Once they switched over to the new experience most of them disappeared. It was very odd and the new experience sucks. A pain to navigate.

Another area where I think they estimated too low is the Finnish. I have several matches on all three services.
