    New feature - Root for your roots

    I logged in and came across this new feature. I'm a huge football fan so I find this pretty cool.

    https://you.23andme.com/root-for-your-roots/

    Ancestry on paper: English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Croatian, Ashkenazi, Polish and Māori.

    Mine were England, Germany and France. Two of those countries may actually win it.

    That's all it gives unfortunately. I'm curious as to how this particular feature calculates these countries, because it differs from the countries listed in the new ancestral breakdown feature (in order of strength anyway), and doesn't match up with DNA Relatives.

    If you click load more it'll give you more countries with a description:

    BalkanKiwi, they give some explanations (click on "learn more about..."), but as always they're not very explicit. For my case I guess it's very simple, as with confidence levels >60% my first ancestry group is B&I, and the only dots I have are british.

    edit: Honnestly I'm worthless in soccer. For me it's only one bullshit more in 23&me's bazaar, that will make the accessibility of their site even more painful. Definitely 23&me is not a genomic place anymore.

    You don't have any dots for France?

    Serves me right for not reading the page in detail. My apologies sir. That answers my question! Montenegro and Bosnia didn't qualify, so the next "strongest" countries for dots are Croatia and Serbia.

    We’ve looked at your Ancestry Composition, Maternal Haplogroup, Paternal Haplogroup, and Neanderthal Ancestry, to identify matches between the teams in the competition and your DNA. Some matches are stronger and indicate recent ancestry, while others indicate an ancient connection. Read more below for how we determine each type of match.

    Strong matches are based on the match strength from your “Recent Ancestor Locations” in your Ancestry Composition report.

    Check the Scientific Details Page of your Ancestry Composition Report to find all of your “Recent Ancestor Locations,” but remember: you will only be able to root for a Recent Ancestor Locations if it qualified for the competition!

    For example, in this screencapture, this person has ancestry in Germany and the Netherlands, but only Germany qualified for the competition.

    This approach is really interesting.
