    So many of the ones I looked at have these updates that I'm assuming anyone that didn't get it probably has way too ambiguous DNA. Unfortunately I fall into this category and it's a bummer. I'd love to have these updated regions. Maybe the science will get there someday.

    They're just the genetic communities. They've been around for a good while but are just listed under the relevant region now rather than separately. I have four sub-regions listed under the Connacht genetic community for Ireland and Scotland. Percentages aren't assigned to genetic communities.
    Ancestry: Ireland (Paper trail ≅ 81.25% Roscommon, 12.5% Galway, 6.25% Mayo)
    Paternal ancestor (Y): Kelly b. c1830 in Co. Roscommon (Uí Maine)
    Father's mtDNA: Fleming b. c1831 in Co. Roscommon (H27e1)
    Maternal ancestor (mt): McDermott b. c1814 in Co. Roscommon
    Paternal great grandfather (mt): Connella b. c1798 in Co. Roscommon (T2a1a8)

    These are new genetic communities that were not previously present on their ethnicity pages. The old genetic communities still appear below the ethnicity estimate. These are definitely new and not the old ones, nor are they ones that have been moved. For Europeans, perhaps this might be the case, but not for people in North America who only had communities in the US for their regions previously.

    Those communities have been there since December 2018. See the thread here for images of the communities that you are now seeing: https://anthrogenica.com/showthread....ties-(Ireland)

    Those new Irish communities have been there since December and in post #9 I stated that there were 14 communities for Germany which is still the case with none added since then. The communities below the ethnicity estimate are likely migrations related to America that can't be attached to a region in Europe. Not all people in the US were lacking communities in Europe before this either since I have a match in the US who always had a community in Ireland. The reason you may be possibly only seeing this now, if you were regularly checking the ethnicity estimates, is because AncestryDNA recently forced everyone to have the new updated results rather than being able to keep the old estimate.

    I figure Anglo/Saxon to be English but enough German to not fit in England alone.
