    Maybe that's why Gedmatch sometimes throws Romanian in as a match for my Dad...

    3% Panonia and 3% German.
    England was the second regional with 8.7% after 57% East Balkans.
    Only 2% NE Europe. And no more east. But... Slavic it's about speaking language?
    p.s. I am from nearby Wallachia in south Romania.

    [QUOTE=Tolan;510572]Some additional results ...
    If you don't have British or Irish ancestor, but Living DNA gives you a fairly high percentage....

    I don't understand the percentages attributed to me.

    In complete mode i got

    GB and IRE 76.9

    SE ENG 14.3
    CORN 11.6
    N YORK 11.2
    S ENG 10.9
    E ANGL 4.6
    ABERDEEN 4.4 (ORKNEY in cautious m why?)
    S WALES bord 4
    CUMBR 2.7
    SC ENGL 2.5
    S YORK 2.4
    SW SCO N IRE 2.2
    N WALES 1.9
    DEVON 1.8
    NW SCO 1.1
    IRE 1.1

    FRANCE 15.7
    EUR S 7.4

    In cautious mode it's different (East Anglia and South Central England bigger)


    non-existent Ireland (but many genuine Irish people get derisory percentages.) Hit and miss...

    Surprising North Yorkshire

    Yes, complete mode.
    I guess Cornwall, Devon, etc... match more with Brittany and Lincolnshire with Normandy and North of France, but it is purely speculative.

    Yes it is!
    Cornwall indeed but not Devon in my case.

    A thread in French is devoted to Brittany. This allows comparisons between Armoricans in particular.

    Wow, people without British ancestry getting almost up 50% British results on LivingDNA. This company is an awful mess. I guess if you're non-British don't bother to pay for their testing.
