So I took a DNA test through ancestry.com a while back. I was always told by my father that his family came from Germany and Ireland. My mother knew far less about her ancestry, but she always knew she was German, Czech, and English. I wanted to really know what made up me, whether what my family told me was true, and whether it matched with the family research I had done already. My father's family in Germany came from a tiny village in the Rhineland Palatinate, and a tiny village in County Roscommon, Ireland. My mother's family came from Lubeck in Schleswig-Holstein, and two tiny villages in what was once western Prussia, before it was given to Poland after World War 1. The other part of the family left the Kingdom of Bohemia in 1885 when the country was still under the control of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Here are my ancestryDNA results:

Europe West: 41%
Ireland: 30%
Great Britain: 8%
Scandinavia: 7%

Low Confidence regions:

Finland/Northwest Russia: 4%
Italy/Greece: 4%
Iberian Peninsula: 3%
Europe East: 3%

Total DNA results: 100% European

Now I ran it through gedmatch, of which I trust Eurogenes and MDLPproject the most for Europeans/European Americans.

Eurogenes: K13 Admixture

Pie chat:
North Atlantic 49.10%
Baltic: 24.41%
West Med: 13.28%
West Asian: 5.65%
East Med: 4.86%
Red Sea: 0.68%
South Asian: 0.85%
Amerindian: 0.28%
Oceanian: 0.61%
Northeast African: 0.27%

Oracle with distance:

1. Southeast English 2.13
2. Orcadian 3.21
3. North Dutch 3.31
4. Danish 3.69
5. Southwest English 4.13
6. Irish 4.24
7. North German 4.39
8. West Scottish 4.71
9. South Dutch 5.54
10. Norwegian 5.93
11. West German 6.55
12. Swedish 7.69
13. French 11.3
14. Austrian 11.93
15. East German 12.47
16. North Swedish 13.44
17. Hungarian 16.65
18. Spanish Cataluna 18.63
19. Spanish Castillia Y Leon 19.84
20. Southwest French 19.93

So pretty much Celtic-Germanic.

I like to use multiple results just to see if the "calculator effect" has anything to do with it.

So my mother's Czech doesn't show up once there. I have seen it when I run it through MDLPproject, however this post is already too long so I'll leave it there. Sorry for such a long post. I guess I'm mostly Celtic and Germanic. I have southwest English show up quite a lot in Gedmatch and in other Eurogenes and MDLP calculators it shows up as Cornish instead. That might explain why my ancestry's "Ireland" is so high, because it includes scotland, shetland, orkney, wales, and Ireland. Do any of you think that Cornish is under Great Britain or Ireland?
