    LivingDNA updating ancestry on March

    That's atleast what I've read on 23andMe forums but haven't found an source yet.

    Anyone knows if it's true?

    A few months ago they were saying March but I don't think there's been any confirmation since then that it would be in March. Katie Welka of Living DNA was asked if results would be updated in March but as far as I know she never confirmed that it would be March.

    When asked about an update in March these were her replies:
    while I don't know the exact timeline, I can confirm it's been in testing and run on my personal results as part of that, which was pretty cool to see. Our biggest hurdle right now is not the panel at this point, but the lack of versioning on the user-facing side. In other words, if we push this out, there will be a lot of happy people, but also a potential mass of people who want their old results back and can't get them. Stability has been a priority as of late to make sure we can build in that kind of versioning on top of our existing tools. (8th February 2019)

    I will see if I can get an updated timeline tomorrow when I'm in the office. There is a blog going out soon with a lot of updates and I'm sure that will be in it, but I may be able to get you the answer sooner than the blog's arrival. (8th Febraury 2019)

    there are no new regions being added in the panel update. By update, I mean that improved reference panels will have the potential to reassign some of your European results to more accurate regions and subregions. For example, if you were reading too high on UK but were actually more Irish, you are likely to see that improve (13th February 2019)
    It could be released in March but I'd have my doubts and there has been no confirmation since then as far as I'm aware of. They've been slow introducing Family Networks so it could be similar with this update.
    Ancestry: Ireland (Paper trail ≅ 81.25% Roscommon, 12.5% Galway, 6.25% Mayo)

    Father's mtDNA: Fleming b. c1831 in Co. Roscommon (H27e/H-c1d*)
    Maternal ancestor: McDermott b. c1814 in Co. Roscommon (H6a1b2/H6-a5a2a2)
    Paternal great grandfather (mt): Connella b. c1798 in Co. Roscommon (T2a1a8)

    No update to my results, I am perplexed to why they feel they need a versioning results solution to Their ancestry breakdown, if they are confident of their new datasets, and their methodology, then there would be absolutely no need to see the old inaccurate results. I am sure they have backups, if something went wrong, I don’t believe any other ancestry has the ability to show previous result milestones, so who are they trying to compete with?

    People interested in previous results probably have already created screenshots. I could be wrong but it’s not of interest to me, I would be more interested to be migrated over to choose to see these new “Beta” results early, and any new Beta features.

    For info- I posted on the 'LivingDNA Results' thread a couple of days ago that I have received my updated dna profile from the company, which includes 'new Irish data', a few days ago. I had contacted the company directly at support@livingdna.zendesk.com in late February and received a reply from Melanie Colbridge this week. My Irish score has increased accurately, and my Central England, East Anglia, South-East England, South Central England, South- West Scotland/Northern Ireland, North-West Scotland and North Wales scores seem very accurate too. Good luck to other posters.

    I contacted Living DNA a few weeks ago and explained to them that my genealogy papers did not show any kind of British ancestry, and that should also be the case with Family Ancestry Map.


    Now all the erroneous information about relatives in the UK is gone from my map and only now only Scandinavian, Germanic and Eastern parts of Europe are shown on the maps. The same goes for the rest of my family who has tested their DNA through Living DNA. Very good news.
    Paper Trail: 100% Swedish (some Danish during 15th & 16th centuries)
    LivingDNA March Update: North West Europe 96.5% (Germanic 43.2%, Scandinavian 53.3%), East Europe 3.5% (Finland & Western Russia 3.5%)
    MyHeritage: North and West Europe 87.1% (Scandinavian 54.5%, English 32.6%), East Europe 12.9% (Baltic 12.9%)
    FTDNA: Scandinavian 70%, East Europe 30% (file from MyHeritage)

    Still no update, and I must have been one of the early adopters of this test.

    I do not see why we should contact them to apply the new datasets to our kit, they should not be doing this in an ad-hoc way.

    They should keep us informed and apply new datasets more or less the same time, or give users the option to view result in Beta mode, if that is indeeed the case.

    The fact that people were able to contact them and have their results changed. Gives me even less confidence in them. As for me no change.

    I emailed them about a month ago asking them to please update my kit and how it isn’t accurate. I still have not got a response back. Piss poor customer service if you ask me.
