    Mines will probably provide more clarity when I get more matches, I only have a few hundred.

    I had one GC at 20% -- Irish in Donegal East, which checks with my Irish line.
    The more I learn about this DNA stuff the less I know.

    I'm in three GCs and definitely have roots in each:

    Early Settlers of Tennessee & The Deep South
    Settlers of the North Carolina-South Carolina Border
    Early Settlers of the Lower Midwest & Virginia
     
    Estimated ancestry after reviewing Ancestry.com, 23&Me, FTDNA My Origins, Living DNA and known family history:
    33% English, 27% Scottish, 18% Welsh, 18% Irish, 4% German/Netherlands

    Y-DNA leads to Isle of Skye, Scottish Highlands: R1b>M343>L278>L754>L389>P297>M269>L23>L51>L151/L11>P312>Z290>L21/M529>DF13>L513/DF1>S5668>A7>Z21253> S7834 > S7828 > BY11203 > BY11186 (about 320-550 years old)

    MTDNA leads to Glamorgan, South Wales: K1a4a1f

    The GC's are damn good eh? I imagine for an adopted person starting from scratch they would be incredibly useful as they would supply a starting point
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English (possibly containing some Welsh ancestry) 31.25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, Eastern German 12.5%, Eastern European (Likely Polish possibly including Romanian) 12.5%, French 7.81%, Native American (Saulteaux and Assiniboine) 2.34%, and Colonial American, 3.125%, which cannot be traced with certainty. With certainty, there is Dutch (at least 1.36%) and some English.

    Absolutely, especially if they improve or refine the program.

    I'm still not quite about their methodology though because I'd expect to have an Eastern European GC as well. They immigrated to the US during the big rush to North America between 1875 and 1900. I think I have enough matches to support it.

    AMERIJOE:

    All of the Genetic Communities are very accurate that my family has been assigned to. I think it's the same with other's results I've read that there are some communities "missing" that I feel we should have, but the ones that are actually assigned are accurate.

    My genetic community is correct in that it is Irish in Southern Ireland but I have no genetic community assigned for Connacht and all my father's ancestry going back generations is from the Sligo/North Roscommon area. I did receive the correct genetic community for my mother's ancestry though but surprised I only have one genetic community assigned.

    The drop downs for the regional Genetic Communities has disappeared, how do I get that functionality back again?

    Nqp15hhu: only a few hundred matches in Ancestry that is wierd, I'd have thought many thousand! Have you uploaded to GEDmatch? And how does that compare in numbers?

    Chelle: on your OP you said you hoped for British regions. I recommend livingDNA for that and their price is reduced at present. We are very detail conscious on this forum (being pedantic helps in genealogy) so disregard much of the criticism

    Out of 64 pre 1800 births 45% Cheshire, 1% Irish (or Scottish), 25% south Derbyshire, 13% Burton on Trent area (where 4 counties within 10 miles), 7% Shropshire, 1% Staffs, 8% Lancs. So far all British Isles despite what some testing companies say.
