    Ancestry Composition Ancestor Locations update

    Many of you may already know 23andMe has made some changes to this feature. The dots have been removed, and instead replaced with a system that grades each country match as a "possible match," "likely match," or "highly likely match." It seems they have also improved how these regions are determined.

    Mine has certainly become more accurate.

    Known ancestry - English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Croatian, Bosnian, Ashkenazi, Polish and Māori.

    I got France as a highly likely match, which is a bit out of left field. Maybe it got Cornish confused with Breton?

    A small improvement in my case.

    They added my slightly underreported Italian (2% vs 6%) as a Likely Match. Which is interesting considering the low numbers involved. While switching my United Kingdom and Irish from 5 & 3 dots to Highly Likely & Likely Matches.

    The rest all broadly catagories

    The following dots gone for bosnia, Romania, Hercegovina, Bulgaria, hungry, Poland and Ireland. Not sure why the switch from Ireland to UK.

    The missus and I used to have 5 dots in Portugal and 1 in Spain, now we just have a "Likely Match" in Portugal, which is pretty underwhelming

    For myself, it now says UK as a highly likely match and Ireland as a possible match. My brother has highly likely match for the UK and likely match for Ireland.

    My parents and I all only have UK. My dad did have Netherlands which was correct but that has now disappeared. The interesting thing for me is that my mum who is half Mauritian Creole gets no Mauritius and none of her Mauritian Creole matches get Mauritius either.
