    New 23andMe Beta Program

    I just opted in to this new beta program. Interesting British and Irish breakdown but no French&German for me yet. Others are getting F&G results.

    Can't say it really corresponds to known ancestor locations, though. More like where their other descendants went.
    Ancestry paper trail tally: 21.1% Colonial American (British Isles, German, Dutch, Swiss, French), 14.1% not traced past 19th Century United States (MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA), 7.8% Canadian (Ontario & Quebec), 40.6% German, 15.6% Czech, 0.8% British & Irish

    Thank you! Both my patents got some F and G I'll post my family results later. Very smart that they allow us to opt in
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English (possibly containing some Welsh ancestry) 31.25%, Eastern European and Eastern German (Galicia, Poland) 25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, French 8.2%, 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.

    I found this with mine. It looks like every result I've seen so far for Britain has greater london in first place.

    Same here. Cornwall was 2nd on my list however, so it is mostly right,

    They got the English regions right and the Italian regions right. Im 12.5% Dutch and 6% French Canadian going back to Normandie and they couldnt sort that out. Thats what I am hoping for, some French German clarity

    They nailed the Swedish on my mom's report down to the county. They got the area of the Netherlands right, but the German was not right.

    For us it's mostly wrong.. Maybe it makes some sense as places distant relatives migrated to.

    French for my mom and Swiss for my dad are very far off! Moms Poland assessment was impressive though - she was given southeastern-most Poland as her strongest match and the region her ancestors came from were SE of modern Poland. North west German when it should probably be eastern German looks like a miss.
    What I like most is that it gives my dad and I strong matches to Central England.. But I do wonder if like Glasgow and greater london if this is common for most...

    I don't think any of these estimates can ever be 100% accurate, nor should be regarded as such. If they are in the ballpark, then it is good enough. If you are English and you are from Suffolk and your top match is Essex, well that is pretty good refinement

    London and Glasgow seem to be on every bodies list, they were first and third on my list.
