    How many people are in your Genetic Communities?

    I noticed that Ancestry has switched from telling you the number of people you match in your genetic communities to the total number of people in your top level community.

    How many people does everyone have in their communities? I hope this might tell us the threshold for Ancestry breaking big communities into smaller ones.

    Mine are:

    Southern England - 684,601 members
    Wales and the West Midlands - 237,767 members

    Thanks

    Gareth
