    The consistent pattern I've seen for French DNA is that it either takes from the French reference population OR it selects a northern population like England and combines it with a southern population like Iberia, so
    France = England plus Iberia in many cases

    Or here it's both! (for erwangery)

    I'm not the best reference, because I'm fairly admixed and my results always seem to be all over the place in any company, but I also have no known British acenstry, and got up to 12.4% British and Wales. Please keep in mind that this is the upload version, as I haven't tested with them.

    I wouldn't think much of it, except that this percentage keeps showing in some Northern version: MyHeritage throws it to Scandinavia; DNA.Land is not trustworthy, but I was surprised to see that they also showed this amount as 'North Europe'.

    I'm willing to test with Ancestry or 23andme, but they don't ship to my country as of yet, so I have to rely on what I have so far.

    Update: The only company that didn't show any 'North' was FTDNA, but then again they also seemed to forget all about my Iberia, so I'm always quick to forget about them. Oops.

    I do not have any french either (3/4 Breton, 1/4 unknown) but my percentage of Iberian is very small, compared to Trelvern. I seem to be more shifted towards another southern population: Italians. I thought I would get a higher percentage for Cornwall as well. Bretons may originate from Devon after all.

    1.G.B and Ireland: 79.9% (Ireland: 26%, Devon: 15.6%, South England: 7.7%, South Central England: 6.6%, Northumbria:
    4.6%, East Anglia: 4.5%, Cumbria: 3.6%, North Wales: 3.2%, Northwest Scotland: 2.4%, Aberdeenshire: 2.4%, Cornwall: 1.9%, South Wales: 1.3%),
    2. Italy: 14,5% (North Italy: 9.1%, Tuscany: 5.4%); 3. Asia (Pashtun): 3,1%; 4.Basque: 2.5%.
