    Number of people per Genetic Community for me. I don't know if this is an indication of ancestry percentages?

    Donegal = 2250.
    Inishowen = 1100.
    Central Donegal = 400.
    Scotland = 2250.
    Ulster = 2750.
    Tyrone, Londonderry and Antrim = 1650.
    South Londonderry and East Antrim = 950.

    I was born in raised in County Londonderry, most of my ancestors are from there.

    It now gives me exact locations rather than just "Munster"- East Cork/Waterford, Waterford and East Limerick/Clare. I knew I had ancestry from the west of Ireland but couldn't pinpoint it until now (I guessed Galway given an mtDNA match from the area and the high Traveller population there).
    Ancestry- 57% Irish and Scottish, 43% English, Welsh and Northwestern European
    23andme (90% confidence)- 40.1% British/Irish, 52.4% Broadly Northwestern European, 6.2% Broadly European, 1.3% unassigned
    DNA Land (Ancestry)- 96% Northwest European, 2% South European, 2% ambiguous Western Eurasian
    DNA Land (23andme)- 94% Northwest European, 2.8% Indus Valley, 1.7% ambiguous Western Eurasian, 1.2% ambiguous

    Hmmm, my Mother, paternal aunt and I did not get new Irish Genetic Communities and I think this is telling me I'm not as Irish as I thought. From my paper trail I estimate 15% Irish but this goes back to colonial America so it's hard to be sure. Living DNA assigns 6.5% Irish to my Mother, 0% to my paternal aunt and 6.1% to me. I assumed this was low but maybe it's closer than I thought. Of course my Irish could be split across so many ancestors there's no clear pattern

    My wife did get new Irish Genetic Communities. Her grandmother was Irish, probably from Dublin but we haven't been able to determine that. These are her new GCs. 25% Irish of course fits nicely with an Irish grandparent.

    Estimated ancestry after reviewing Ancestry.com, 23&Me, FTDNA My Origins, Living DNA and known family history:
    32% English, 28% Scottish, 20% Welsh, 16% Irish, 4% German/Netherlands

    Y-DNA leads to Isle of Skye, Scottish Highlands: R1b>M343>L278>L754>L389>P297>M269>L23>L51>L151/L11>P312>Z290>L21/M529>DF13>L513/DF1>S5668>A7>Z21253> S7834 > S7828 > BY11203 > BY11186 (about 320-550 years old)

    I would disagree with that, my 2nd cousins don't have any Genetic Communities and they are about 70% of Ulster Irish ancestry.

    Your wife interestingly has the same communities as me.

    I wouldn't doubt your amount of Irish ancestry just yet. We know that Living DNA underestimate Ireland (at least they used to but I don't know what an Irish person would get now if they bought a kit off them). My dad's second cousin has a father from County Kerry, her maternal grandmother was from County Roscommon and her maternal grandfather was from County Down. I know when she first tested, she only had a community in Kerry. I don't know about Ulster now but she still isn't a part of the Connacht genetic community even though that's where her grandmother was from.
    Ancestry: Ireland (Roscommon, Galway, Mayo)
    Paternal ancestor (Y): Kelly b. c1830 in Co. Roscommon
    Father's mtDNA: Fleming b. c1831 in Co. Roscommon (H27e)
    Maternal ancestor (mt): McDermott b. c1814 in Co. Roscommon
    Paternal great grandfather (mt): Connella b. c1798 in Co. Roscommon (T2a1a8)

    Looks like Ireland, Mexican and Puerto Rican GC's have received finer-grained resolution. See the copy of the email I just got from Ancestry below.

    92 regions is amazing when you compare Ireland to the size of Mexico.

    It is truly fascinating and makes me wonder what differences exist between these small regions that allows for Ancestry to pick up the unique personal results?

    My Ancestry DNA just updated about a week ago for different percentages overall but I have not received any updates on genetic communities. I went from being 9% Ireland/Scotland/Wales to 33% Ireland/Scotland. Is the only update I can expect? I would absolutely love to know the specific regions in Ireland.
