    Apologies for off topic but has anyone had their communities change with updates? Has anyone ever had one added?
    My genetic communities were different before the update when more communities were added for Ireland. I still had Connacht (very likely 95%) but my sub-communities were North Connacht (Likely 60%) and Galway (Possible 20%). My dad's sister had these as well as East Mayo (I think that was the name).

    North Connacht went further east than it does now. There were only 5 sub-communities for Connacht back then while there are 22 now. I've attached my aunt's and my own old communities.

    Question for a friend: does anyone of 1/2-Irish-American ancestry still not get any Irish genetic communities? We're working on a family mystery, and Ancestry's been of zero help (as opposed to YSEQ and Big Y, in their own way).

    The problem there is probably due to their Irish ancestry being mixed. Although the person is full Irish on one side, the ancestors could be a mix of people with origins from all over Ireland. My dad's first cousin is half Irish and half Polish (his father's side were born in Prussia before emigrating to the US). He gets Connacht as his genetic community. His full ethnicity estimate is 53% Ireland and Scotland, 33% Eastern Europe and Russia, and 14% Baltic States.

    I can’t get the figures for the smaller communities.

    I was particularly interested in the Irish and African American GCs as these were most recently created. It looks like Ancestry are happy to create sub-communities with as few as 20,000 people in them.

    My hope has been for Great Britain to be able to get communities based on the traditional counties and this looks doable. For the US, they should be able to go to clusters of 4-5 counties.

    It looks like the European settler to the US communities are top of the list for a revamp, followed by Great Britain and Eastern Europe.

    One of the things I’ve noticed is that you used to be able to see everyone in your GCs and they seem to have taken that away (perhaps due to privacy concerns). They now only show 3 featured matches, which is not much use. I’ve also noticed that for some matches I can now only see their ethnicity for the regions we share and not everything.

    They also take away the shared locations map, if you switch on the new beta. It seems like they are giving us more connections on a plate but are taking away some of the tools to try and figure out connections where they haven’t been able to do so.
    Will that be possible? English people move about a lot!

    That makes sense. The line of interest is a direct paternal line; the Y-subclade + surname combination strongly suggests an origin in Clare or Limerick, but there's no eliminating the possibility that people with ultimate roots in that region ended up somewhere else in the centuries before coming to America. Been waiting for something like "Eastern Clare" to show up on Ancestry, but alas.

    England, Wales & Northwestern Europe. No community total.
    Primarily located in: England, Scotland, Wales. This totals 15%. Question, anybody know why Scotland is an included region here and not listed with Scotland above? Another question, if Ulster Ireland is subtracted from the Scotland total would the balance be Central Scotland or are there other unmentioned regions in the mix? I also have ancestors from Ireland not just Northern Ireland.
