    Helix - Ancestry Basics

    Helix now has their own continental ancestral breakdown. If you tested with them (ie. through Helix Genographic) then it should be free for a limited time I believe. https://www.helix.com/products/ancestry-basics

    Here are my results:

    I did a few of the Helix tests, but the ancestry one was kind of dull, I'm 100% European.

    I read somewhere that Helix only covers 140,000 SNPs, it's no wonder it's so dull.

    Either I initially missed the regional breakdown or they added it later, but now I have 100% Western Europe.
