    23andMe Ancestry Composition Update June 2019. West Asian/North Africa & South Asia

    Yesterday some people on Reddit received an update for their South Asian and West Asian/North African regions, but it went away after a few minutes. Today someone posted the new categories, and they got it from the CEO's ancestry link, which has the update now.

    All the regions:

    What do you guys think? Did any of you receive it?

    When are they going to stop classifying Ashkenazi as "European"? It deserves its own category.

    They don’t have Maltese lumped with Greek/Balkan anymore it’s now under Italian.

    The Original OP of this thread has made an error.
    The first image they downloaded at start of this thread is Data Sets image not the new region layout.

    I now have 0.5% West Asian/North African but it's broadly. Bah humbug. At least the composition appears to be getting more accurate, even if it does understate my British/Irish this time round.
    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%

    They keep lowering my Italian, raising my Broadly Southern European and raising my West Asian...
    My broadly NW went from 17% to 9%, and based on chromasome painting my broadly european should be Italian or Broadly southern...

    The Sicilians I follow have not updated yet. I wonder which West Asian category they will end up scoring as their secondary ancestry after Italian.
