    Changes to communities.

    I liked that they had a tab that said connection. That's now gone you can find your matches in the community but it's not as obvious imo.

    I still have my connection tab. Maybe it's only affecting certain genetic communities?

    My AncestryDNA has changed now. My Genetic Communities are assigned with areas.

    1. Ulster Irish: Ireland/Wales/Scotland
    2. Scots: Ireland/Wales/Scotland and Europe West.

    Still no further stratification in my Scots Genetic Community.

    My genetic communities prior to the changes were : Central Europeans and Hungarians and Slovaks. Now, I have Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania for one community and still have Hungarians and Slovaks for the other. Funny thing is that I don't have any known connections to these groups. Perhaps, some overlap from my Bosnian-Serb ancestry?

    My genetic community name changed from "Southeastern Europeans" to "Greece,Turkey and Albania" . Still belong to this GC with 95% confidence. All other stats seem unchanged...the number of people joining this GC is growing though.

    I've noticed that instead of Ireland they now have Ireland/Scotland/Wales. I'd say that's a good move as it should hopefully reduce the people thinking they just have "Irish" ancestry.

    That's probably a good development. Oddly enough it's not on my page yet. However, I can see insights now for the genetic community on Ancestry.com now.

    Minimal name changes to mine, they dropped 'English' from Yorkshire & Pennines. The membership numbers of both that and the Central Scotland/Ulster Ireland rocketed a while ago, my matches are now 343 and 904 respectively. The first five months they were around 9 and 20.

    For myself, yes some reference population names have been modified (such as Ireland to Irish/Scottish/Welsh), and the presentation is highlighting more the "Southern England" GC, even into the "ethnicity" presentation, which is good, they are integrating GCs it seems more into the general ethnicity result. However, in doing so, they've reduced the visibility and detail of all Genetic Communities feature. I can no longer see my confidence levels in a GC, or the information behind different ethnicity results for that GC. Features like that below I can no longer find:



    In addition, my previous highlighted GC wasn't so much "Southern England", but a daughter GC, "East Anglia & Essex". But they seem to now be burying GCs into the general ethnicity results, but not necessarily with such degree of focus. Indeed, the only evidence of my membership of the East Anglia & Essex GC now is that I have the option of filtering DNA matches with it.
