    It will probably proceed the way it did when they introduced the Genetic Communities, and even the name changes (Italy/Greece -> Europe South, Ireland -> Ireland/Wales/Scotland): at first only a very small group of people get the changes, then a few more, and then finally everyone about a month or two after the first incidents showed up.

    Based on the new regions of England/Wales it looks like they might be separating the Germanic Saxon/Viking influence in England from the Roman/Brythonic influence vs the Gaelic influence in Ireland/Scotland.

    Labeling the Germanic influence as Germanic instead of Great Britain or Europe West will decrease discrepancies found in the previous update.

    I wonder though what they are going to label for France or Gaulish influences?

    I did see a screenshot of a region just labeled “France” but I’m not sure if that’s the only new label or if it’s split into anything else.

    I've seen regions for "France", "Spain", "Portugal", "Basque", "Italy".

    I have just just been reading the 23andme forum on this topic.

    Someone posted this.

    Yes, there is an update coming soon. I don’t have it but I’ve seen it on Instagram. There’s no full list of regions yet, but it splits down way further than before: between Scandinavian countries and even between France and Germany! I contacted ancestry about it and they told me that it will be coming very soon.

    Mine says "Up to Date" for April 2018 but there were no changes.

    I'm very envious of various Instagram users who have posted updated results. The European overhaul looks very well done. Finally France is separate from Central Europe. I can't wait to see everyone's updated results here.
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English (possibly containing some Welsh ancestry) 31.25%, Eastern European and Eastern German (Galicia, Poland) 25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, French 8.2%, Native American 1.95%, and Colonial American, 3.125%, which cannot be determined with complete certainty: there is Dutch (at least 1.36%) and some English. The rest could include Spanish, Norwegian, German, and French, but these percentages would be minuscule.

    It certainly looks more promising than the 23andme update which was a bit meh for me.

    Sktibo can you link those results you have seen on Instagram? Please

    https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/ancestrydna/

    There's a good number under this category scroll through and check em out

    Categories I've seen so far for Europe:
    Ireland & Scotland
    England & Wales
    France
    Spain
    Portugal
    Italy
    Germanic Europe
    Greece and the Balkans
    Baltic States
    Norway
    Sweden
    Eastern Europe and Russia

    The bubble that covers "England and Wales" also extends to the Netherlands, Belgium, Brittany and North France. France is the rest of France south of this line, but is still most of France. This is in my opinion a promising indicator as it shows they might not have just pulled these categories out of nowhere as they did last time (or currently still have for those of us without updates yet)

    Thanks.

    I have just contacted them.

    What I received in reply

    Ancestry regularly updated information. They are currently rolling out an update. It should be completed soon. Also I do not have a completion date but it is an active rollout.

    So you may be updated at any time.
