    That's exciting news! I wonder what they'll call what seems to be the old "Great Britain" now that it encompasses so much of continental Europe. Really excited if they can accurately distinguish between Germanic Europe and French regions now!

    Edit 1:

    Was just trawling through Twitter to see if I could find any other results shared in the new format and found this:

    From what I’ve seen on screen shots they’re doing “England and Wales” and ”Ireland and Scotland” as new regions.

    Edit: you beat me to it!

    That's interesting. I wonder when it is being rolled out globally - I still have the old categories.

    Checking my results would indicate a work in progress. There is a decent regional breakdowns which will be helpful once connections are made. Here are some screenshots showing my British Isles breakdown by regions.

    These sub-regions have been there for quite some time. The screen shots of the new results are not of the sub-regions but of new main regional breakdowns.

    i'm not that confident that mine will change, it looked like it was processing something when i logged in a few days ago, and shows my results as "up to date", with no changes made to the numbers or regions.. maybe theyre only applying these categories to newer tests? a lot of the features people claim to have i've never seen before, i wonder if its some kind of variation between american, canadian, and uk ancestry users?

    I have seen a few of these new results, that definitely seems to be the new ancestry breakdown.

    Additoinally looking at youtube videos of new ancestry results i haven't found one, but I saw that Ancestry.com released a new short youtube video explaing "your dna results may change but your dna doesn't change" PLUS all the weird behavior with the up to date dissapearing, up to date re-appearing and the popup box coming out now. IT all poitns to them ramping up to roll this out sitewide.

    Also for one person who is on the new breakdown and others like him I CAN'T do a compare from the app (to see his breakdown) it gets greyed out.

    The best we can do for preliminaril knowing is to reach out to these folks and get them to click on "All regions" and take a screenshot of that. I haven't gotten anyone to do it, someone might have better luck then me.
