    Hope it's way more accurate than the current one.
    Ethnogene (most accurate so far IMO): Frisian 2.8%, Scottish 19.2%, Welsh 2.4%, English 29.0%, Irish 31.7%, Cornish 1.9%, Irish Traveller 4.0%, French 2.6%, Dutch 1.0%, German 1.8%, Western Indian 1.1%, Central/Southern Ashkenazi 1.0%, Norwegian 1.5%

    Greek category changed to Greek+South Italian in my results. Haven't noticed anything else different.

    Do these update for people that uploaded raw data from 23andMe or Ancestry to get My Heritage results?

    If they just renamed Scandinavia to England, Wales and NW Europe they'd be pretty accurate for me. For now they've assigned to me ~60% Scotland&Ireland and ~40% Scandinavia.

    Did they ever correct the 1-2% Nigerian that incorrectly was assigned to many Europeans?
     
    Estimated ancestry after reviewing Ancestry.com, 23&Me, FTDNA My Origins, Living DNA and known family history:
    33% English, 27% Scottish, 18% Welsh, 18% 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)

    MTDNA leads to Glamorgan, South Wales: K1a4a1f
