    New Ethnicity Estimate Update Scheduled For Later This Year (2019)

    https://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/...dna-customers/

    Ancestry's blog post mentions that they will do an update later this year and it will include new regions. They will also be releasing new genetic communities.
    Known ancestry through paper trail: English, Scottish (Ayrshire), Irish (Ulster, Dublin), minor amount of Welsh, German (Saarland), Dutch, minor amounts of Swiss (Zurich), French, Italian (North Italy), and a very small amount of Native American (Chowanoke/Chowanoc).

    23andMe (V4) 90% Confidence Level: 56.1% Broadly NW European, 9% British & Irish, 0.4% Scandinavian, 0.2% Finnish, 32.3% Broadly European, 0.2% Native American, 1.8% Unassigned

    It seems likely that this might be for some of the less well served regions outside Europe, but I hope it's across the board.
    Living DNA Cautious mode:
    South Wales Border-related ancestry: 86.8%
    Cornwall: 8%
    Cumbria-related ancestry: 5.2%
    Y line: Peak District, England. Big Y match: Scania, Sweden; TMRCA 1,280 ybp (YFull);
    mtDNA: traces to Glamorgan, Wales, 18th century. Mother's Y line (Wales): R-L21 L371

    Exciting stuff. Maybe this is why they are getting rid of people’s old ethnicity results in July to make room for a new update. I wouldn’t expect much change in my kits (100% British Isles) but perhaps they will be able to go more granular on the regions. Depends how many samples they have now.

    Definitely looking forward to more GCs

    Hope they have more North American Indian populations. They'd be the first to go this granular there.
    Mum = 50% Irish, 25% Ukrainian, 25% Romanian
    Dad = 40% French-Canadian, 10% Irish, 50% English
    Big Y + YTree.net = R M269 -> DF27 -> Z195 -> FGC34881 -> FGC34865 (SW France; ~500 ybp)
    FTDNA mtDNA Full Sequence = J1c2e
    Most Distant Known Ancestor = Jean Moreau b. 1630s Parthenay, Deux-Sèvres, France
    Surnames = Welch, Chibry, Moreau, Todd, Anderson, Bedford, Joncas, Basaraba
