    No, I am not aware they have yet integrated any of the data they got from their 2018 sample requests.

    You are correct, it was, to some extent. Before people who were entirely Irish, IIRC, like Jessie only got 50% Ireland. I think FionnSneachta got even less, most of her results were SW Scotland and NI. Their previous Irish reference population was .... 6. So, they were more or less forced to add the samples they had to it as it was.
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English (possibly containing some Welsh ancestry) 31.25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, Eastern German 12.5%, Eastern European (Likely Polish possibly including Romanian) 12.5%, French 7.81%, Native American (Saulteaux and Assiniboine) 2.34%, and Colonial American, 3.125%, which cannot be traced with certainty. With certainty, there is Dutch (at least 1.36%) and some English.

    My "Recent Ancestry" is back, exactly the same as it was before.

    My kit was never updated to show Irish. I should have around 20%, but they give me nothing.

    Yeah, Living DNA never figured out a way to do it for everyone at once, but many people received updates which improved this region for them. IIRC you're not alone either in not having this updated. If I were you I'd start to email them or ask them on facebook to do this for you. You might get a CSR who gives you a generic "we dont do manual updates for customers" response but don't let it stop you. At least, that's what I would do. Living DNA have updated my results.... I think I'm on the fourth time now.

    I also asked and got an update.. My Irish was poor and nothing outside of UK when I tested 4/2017 so I leaned on them and I got 34% Ireland, 2.7% NI, 2.4% Aberdeenshire ( Which are clearly my Donegal folks who went back and forth) and 3.2% Scandinavia.. And I have to say they asked me what I was missing and I said I had 3rd Great grandparents from Sweden.. so not sure they did not just "give " me that..
    I do feel their North Wales 19% is accurate as well as little bits of Cornwall and Devon as right now 23andme and AncestryDNA have highlighted those areas.. I have North Wales Geographic Community with considerable matches and 23andme shows me those break out areas..

    I upgraded for free in LivingDNA, and I confess the results seem "outdated", in the sense they resemble old versions' of commercial companies. LivingDNA may work fine for UK, but not for South Europe, for example. Not yet.
    (I used third party Raw Data.)

    It seems my father's got stuck in the pipeline . I was told the reference would be removed , and to reupload the raw data . I've just done that. LDNA need to work on improving the technical side of things .

    For kicks, I submitted my AncestryDNA kit in for the regional analysis:

    IMG_9570.jpg

    Not sure where the other 6.6% went, but this is way more accurate than my updated swab test.

    (swab test)
    57.3% Europe (East)
    - 42.2% NE Europe
    - 9.3% Finland and NW Russia
    - 5.8% Baltics

    29.6% Europe (North and West)
    - 29.6% Germanic
    - 10.4% Scandinavia

    13.1% GB and Ireland
    - Scotland and Ireland 13.1%

    Most noticeably is the southern Europe as potential proxy for my absent French.

    Seems like there is A LOT of uncertainty with the way they are producing these results.

    edit - that should have read "way more accurate"
