    Thanks for the tip! All I know is both her parents where born in Ireland circa the 1840s and they came to America sometime before 1868 which is when she was born. Plus, they were Catholic.

Unless some of my Ulster Scots lines are ancestors who came from the Aberdeenshire area I can't get my head around it but I don't think that's the case the vast of people are reporting Aberdeenshire percentages with no known Aberdennshire percentages.

    Kind Regards

    I just want to highlight this point Jonathan made: since Living DNA changed their calculation, a lot more people have received aberdeenshire percentages, and many of them don't have ancestry from that region. I will point out that I actually don't have any ancestry from any of the regions which can be included under Living DNA's aberdeenshire.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I was finding it difficult to understand their cautious groups, but I think I do fall into one of the Aberdeenshire regions somewhere. I'll wait for the update and see what happens.

    Yes, thanks for the many informative comments! I have about 6% Aberdeenshire that I can't account for and believe my 6% Irish should be about 17%. I was expecting after Living DNA's Irish update about 10% might be pulled from north and central England to Ireland but now expect some will be pulled from Scotland. My family records turn up about 21% Scot and I believe it's NW/Highlands. LDNA assigns almost 21% NW Scotland which fits like a glove.

    I must applaud Living DNA, my results are quite good already and after the Irish and German updates they should get better. These frequent upgrades of their reference database are much appreciated.

    Yes, I would say that I'm pretty much in the same boat as you are. For the most part I'm very happy with LDNA's (complete mode) results. They got the broad numbers just about right (88% GB&I, 5.9% SE, 4.4% N&WE & 1.6% EE). Although, the Scandinavian should really be German but their Scandinavia covers parts of Germany and the 1.6% Moldova is just inexplicable.

    Where the British Isles are concerned, I do have some quibbles. My Irish should be approximately 12.5% and they only gave me 1.3%, which is down from their previous reading of 5%. Hopefully, they'll correct that number when the Irish update comes online. Although, in my case they should pull it from the English results, which seem a little too high, not from the Scottish, which seem a little low.

    Other than that, I can't complain. They did better than anyone else did and they're trying to be a lot more specific than the others. So I'll give them credit, where credit is do.

    Man, that Irish update can't come soon enough. I'm praying it's the thing that will finally break apart my Northumbrian percentage and push it in the direction it needs to go.. but it would be hilarious if it doesn't. In the last update I lost my 3.1% Ireland to Aberdeenshire, which is now my second largest category. I'm a bit worried that once the Irish project is released with its massive number of samples (last I read I think they had over 1200) that people will experience the same problem they have with the English regions... being assigned too much of them when there isn't actually anything there

    I don't think that the sample size should be a problem. It's averaging at 92 samples per the 13 regions which isn't that much really. Hopefully we'll find out soon enough anyway. It doesn't look like the update will be released by the end of the summer though. I wonder if it's a lack of samples in certain regions or a problem dividing Ireland into regions based on DNA that's causing the delay.

    I think it's a bit ambitious to divide Ireland into thirteen regions, if they can do it then fantastic but I would have thought it would be more along the lines of 4-6 genetic regions. If they release it this year that would be splendid, but I have a feeling it might take them longer

    Funny, my other main quibble with LDNA is they assigned me 98.7% British and Irish! My NW Europe is just 1.3% assigned to Scandinavia when my paper trail turns up 5% German/Dutch so I'd like to see that turn up with the German update. Of course that's nitpicking, I can easily enough push over that small percent from SE England myself. Heck, for grits & shins why not splurge and push over another 0.5% to Northern France since even though I haven't found any French in my family tree it makes sense and doesn't make much difference.

    I wouldn't mind if the updates don't come till the end of the year, take the time to get it right. Also, I have tests just submitted for my wife, mother and paternal aunt and it would be nice to see and screenprint percentages before and after updates. Of course having three tests hanging out there in the wind like that, I may be setting in a bias for early results! You guys can thank me then if that happens!
