    My family's results on MyHeritage are all over the place, but none of us get excess Scandinavian. My sister and dad don't get any (my dad isn't Scandinavian but my sister should be about an eighth and used to have 43% on Ancestry, and continues to have 20% Norwegian, 7% Swedish on Ancestry). I get a little less Scandinavian than I probably have, but extra N&W Europe and Baltic (my mom and sister get high Irish, etc., mine is likely low). My mom's Scandinavian looks right, but it doesn't give her German or English, which is odd (excess Irish, etc., and then a bunch of odd small percentages).

Finnish is more likely through your Russian paper trail. My grandfather is likely Ingrian Finn, but the majority of his ancestry is Eastern European/Baltic and about 20% Finnish, no Scandinavian picked up for him. My paper trail ends with my great grandfather unfortunately, for now at least. He was sentenced to a labor camp in 1937 and some or maybe all of my grandfather's records were burned and we have no info on his mother. We have not received updated Ancestry results yet, but I am curious to see how our results change.

    The eras I was referring to are pretty long ago, so I think it's less likely that any Scandinavian you have is through your Russian paper trail.

    It was stated earlier in this thread that MyHeritage confuses or mistakes English/Irish/German with Scandinavian and my results demonstrate that (no Irish paper trail, but documented Scandinavian and German paper trails and more accurate results on other tests). That may be the scenario in your case as well. I'm not as knowledgeable with British/Irish results, but I think those with Irish heritage do show Scandinavian admixtures.
    I got 0-6 Scandinavia and 0-6 Finland/Nw Russia on ancestry. If there is Scandinavian dna on my fathers side, the unknown side, I think itd have to be miniscular, like 1/32 and below. I found potentially a scandavian surname that would make me 1/32. Yeah that and all the Iberian dna as well gets mixed up, so many overlaps in Ancestry, and other companies. He moved to Novogorod I think, after he left Kazakhstan where he was born. The woman he married was Jewish so I fail to see a connection there, I just thought potentially the dna could be detected from that region. Im starting to lean towards that the Scandinavian is just influence over time and maybe, just maybe something like 1/32.
    Final Ancestry Paper Trail Tally:
    25% Russian, 17.6% Irish, 16.4% Ashkenazi Jewish (12.5% from Russia and 3.9% is West Yiddish) 12.5% Belarusian, 7.3% French (including 3.125% French-Canadian) 6.25% Kazakh, 6.25% African, 6.25% Northern Irish, 1.5625% Welsh, 0.78125% Uzbek.

    With the AncestryDNA update, my grandfather did receive some Sweden. I was not expecting that, but given the history of Russia, Finland and Sweden it kind of makes sense.

    @czl, did you receive the update?

    I did! I got 3% Swedish which lines up with what I found on my parental side. So it is 1/32 after all I guess. Sweden also scraps Norway Denmark and Germany by the way so it could be from one of those places. The totals I received on the Russian side were pretty expected. A disgustingly large amount of Baltic dna for somebody who lacks it and a crazy range for the Slavic DNA. In the v2 hack Finland/NW Russia was coded as Volga-Ural so now that I saw that I’m actually think it was my Kazakh dna being detected, it fit the 1/16 or 6% amount as well. In this update the Eastern Europe and Russia regions encompass most of Kazakhstan so that’s where it went.

    I get an outrageous 51.1% Scandinavian with one kit and 47.3% with another. I have no Scandinavian in my paper trail. I have uploaded my LivingDNA data to see what that gives

    you are not alone, I've seen a good bit of that. my Dad gets a huge amount of Scandinavian too. No known ancestry but 23andme has him at 1.6% or something and ancestry has him at 10% sweden
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English 28.12%, Eastern European and Eastern German (Galicia, Poland) 25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, French 8.2%, Welsh 3.125%, 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.

    Ancestry did a really nice job of limiting my Scandinavian dna from 0-12% to 3%. They eliminated that awful Volga-Ural catergoey that for the longest time was mislabeled and giving me headaches. It was never officially even released under that, I got it through the v2 hack. Europe west number stayed the same into Germanic Europe. I reckon that it picked up my West Yiddish/German Jewish dna and put it in there as well as my Swiss dna.

    23andMe give me 6.6% Scandinavian. I do have 14cM+ cM matches from Scandinavia on FTDNA but I suspect by my LivingDNA results NPEs are my main matches
