    I got the email also......only change was a slight increase in central europe and also a bit in Baltic ?


    I still rate MyOrigins as second last in accuracy, just in front of Ancestry.

    I do not count LivingDna at all as they had 2 years to predict mine and have failed to put any numbers for me.


    my order for top 2 are
    Myheritage

    My Path = ( K-M9+, TL-P326+, T-M184+, L490+, M70+, PF5664+, L131+, L446+, CTS933+, CTS3767+, CTS8862+, Z19945+, BY143483+ )

    If it were just me, I'd rank FTDNA much higher. But I think they do have at least the accuracy of a stopped clock, and apparently they stopped pretty close to my time. Unfortunately, there's no consistency with other family members.

    Most glaringly, they report my father as having 95% "England, Wales, and Scotland" at the same time they report me as having 4%; and they report me as 54% "Central Europe" while my father is not reported to have any. In actuality, his paper trail suggests he's closer to 2/3 "Palatine German" from the 18th century. Most of my "England, Wales, and Scotland" -- which should be more than 4%, but apparently shows up as 21% "Ireland" is from my mother.

    She certainly wasn't 108% "Central European"! (And this doesn't even account for my 15% "Spanish", which on paper is 12.5% and is also from my mother.)

    Besides British-German-Catalan, ancestry includes smaller amounts of French, Irish, Swiss, Choctaw & another NA tribe, possibly Catawba. Avatar picture is: my father, his father, & his father's father; baby is my eldest brother.

    An insignificant change for me (likely a change in rounding to whole numbers) - my Irish dropped from 12% to 11%, causing my total to drop from 100% to 99%. Otherwise 58% British, 22% Scandinavian and 8% Germanic Europe remained the same. My only complaint is that the Scandinavian actually is British&Irish
     
    Estimated ancestry after reviewing Ancestry.com, 23&Me, FTDNA My Origins, Living DNA and known family history:
    33% English, 27% Scottish, 18% Welsh, 18% Irish, 4% German/Netherlands

    Received my ethnicity update last week - and my mother's.
    Here they are.
    All records point to my mother being all British, while my father is German/Polish, from people living in the same region for 200-750 years.
    I have scaled my mother's numbers to be directly comparable with mine.
    Theory FTDNA Mother*
    Western Europe 69 50
    Central Europe 50 35 15
    German/Polish 50
    Ireland 3 35 15
    England, Wales, 47 0 20
    and Scotland
    England -Cornwall 22
    Cornwall 19
    Scotland 6
    Scandinavia (<1) 0

    Southern Europe 0 20
    Greece and Balkans 0 15
    Malta 0 3
    Iberian Peninsula 0 2
    Baltic 0 9
    Finnish 0 3
    Eastern Europe 0 0
    East Slavic 0 0
    West Slavic 0 0

    I used to have Anatolia a couple of updates ago. Now it is Malta and Iberia. And presumably something to do with Cornish.
    The Greek/Balkans thing is a mis-attribution of Sorb/Wend background (West Slav).
    They lived for a while in Saxony before some went south to Croatia, and it is these the ethnicity picks up.
    I can't even estimate that from my paper ancestry.
    While some surnames point to that ethnicity and many kept their own language and married within their own until quite recently, the surnames in my family appear more general.
    One surname I have suggests origins towards NE Poland, so I can understand some Baltic creeping in. And Ancestry and MyHeritage have some Baltic too.
    But the Finnish is a total mystery.
    I have DNA matches with some Swedes or Germans with Swedish ancestry, so that was likely at something under 1%, but has not been mentioned.

    FTDNA has still not been able to separate Scottish from Irish.
    Ancestry does, but overestimates mine by half.
    Only LivingDNA separates out Cornish, but some friends have had some quite bizarre Cornish estimates from them, while others look quite reasonable.
    Only Ancestry's Community has spotted my Cornish and where they came from, more or less. But they have the numbers to do that.

    Still, friends who have tested siblings have quite large variance across them for all ethnicities, whoever they test with.
    In my case, my mother's estimate is quite reasonably British, yet I have those Med inclusions.
    So they are artifacts.

    If I were starting out as an adoptee, this would tell me I had British and Central European origins, which is true.
    Any further than that and this estimate is providing more false leads than sound ones.
    But I started out back 5 generations and have added more on the British side.
    The Sorb/Wend thing is the only valuable observation here, and it is only valuable because I knew enough history about that group to research their deep history movements and decipher what FTDNA was telling me.

    All company estimates seem far too ready to ascribe British Celtic to Irish, which is just wrong.
    Oh, and I probably have some Welsh back 7 generations, too; but that's getting a bit tiny.

    EDIT * Sorry about the formatting. It's all there in the online draft, but the spaces have been taken out in the final by the website.

    It gives me high Scandinavian too, which could partially be explained by several paternal lines being ultimately of Norman French origin. That, and I have strong roots in the historical Danelaw.

    This is similar to me. It's accurate enough for me, but makes no sense if I look at family members.

    My mom gets 97% England/Wales/Scotland, but is in fact more like 50% that + Irish (she has lots of Irish on paper, but it's Ulster so hard to peg), a quarter each German and Swedish. The other 3% makes sense given her actual ancestry: Baltic and Finnish.

    My dad is almost all English and Welsh (little bit French, Dutch, and German) but gets 34% E/W/S, 28% Central Europe, 21% Scandinavian, and 18% Irish.

    Basically, if they switched my parents with eachother, I'd be super impressed.

    I get okay results (67% E/W/S, 25% Scandinavian, 6% Central Europe), trace results neither parent gets, but I don't care about trace (Malta, West Slavic, Middle East). I'd think this was pretty good (no surprise if German gets put in Scandinavian to some extent) but for seeing my parents' results. My sister's is really similar to mine: 62% E/W/S, 26% Scandinavian, 6% Central Europe, 4% Ireland, same trace results.

    Based on my parents, I think they just can't tell English and Scandinavian apart. (And my mom's Scandinavian isn't even Danish or Norwegian, but Swedish.)
