    No change with mine either.

    Just hope if it is another change, then they have learnt from the fiasco of last year. If I remember correctly. more than a few of us got our updated estimate through a back door trick.

    I did get an email from them saying there was an update a couple days ago. I wonder if this is when all those who refused or didnt update were force updated?

    well, i checked and many still have the older (better) estimate

    The categories do appear to be different Wales combined with Ireland and Scotland. The reemergence of Great Britain.

    Maybe something is happening? Certainly my results are the same.

    No change for me either, and I would be shocked if there was an update that went back to the old Great Britain and Ireland/Scotland/Wales categories.

    It seems strange that Ancestry would be doing another ethnicity update so soon after the last one. The reasons I can think of are as follows:

    - They have kept on collecting more samples after the last update and are now adding these in
    - They had a lot of complaints after the last update (or not enough people chose to switch) so they are re-analysing the existing samples
    - They are keeping the analysis the same but are just re-labelling some of the regions.

    If it is the first option, I hope they have focused on the weakest regions from the last version

    Noyhing has changed for me but I do notice that some of my matches have Ireland/Scotland/Wales and Great Britain as catergories.

    Some of mine do too, but when I compare my results to theirs I get a message saying they haven't updated their results yet, so some areas of overlap may not show. And then when the comparison is displayed it says "updated" above mine.
