    Thanks, I went and checked and my communities did change today. I lost the Newfoundland English Settlers community (which I had just posted above) but gained a few under Canadian Maritimes Canadians.

    Well I now have an Australian genetic community, missed that most were from East Germany/Prussia then, Poland now mostly. I do have British to SA (gr grandmother)-actually Sth Ireland
    Dad's gr grandfather, and all the rest of the community down the line on that branch were East German/Sorb to SA...that is not mentioned?
    I think ancestry has made a mistake here. The Irish actually was the minority.. it was a German-speaking community? I could understand if ancestry called Germans/Sorbs/ Prussian/ Poles etc to SA as well? But left out.
    In the US, does ancestry ignore the German immigrants to the US,like the Sorbs and those from what is now Poland (Lower Silesia, Brandenburg around the Odra river?)? Is there any communities for non-Brits(If you class Irish as Brits) to the US?

    Today I also got a new Scottish genetic community, Scottish Highlands & Islands. The smaller ellipse is Ross & Cromarty. My Mother has had this for months.

    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

    Yes, but there are significantly less groups for Asia and Africa. I would recommend MyHeritage over Ancestry if you want more non European detail. Their raw data itself is more or less the same and both are superior to 23andMe V5 for GEDMatch.
