    MyHeritage Ethnicity Estimate Update and Genetic Groups

    Since nobody's talked about this here, I'll start.
    The guys at MyHeritage expanded their references and will recalculate the ethnicity estimate hopefully before the end of the year.
    Additionally, they plan to introduce genetic groups.

    Depending on the update I will consider ordering a 23andme kit. All indications bases on g25 show a distant German pull while MyHeritage made me 16% Iberian + 3% Italian + 3% Irish/Scottish.

    MyHeritage's ethnicity estimate is questionable for some users right now. But when it comes to G25, it is one of the best options and has more relevant SNPs than 23andme's v5. I'm tested on 23andme's v4, but I've ordered MyHeritage kits for my parents.

    If it makes you feel better, one of my DNA relatives who I'm in contact with is entirely Scottish and she only got 14.5% Scottish. Her mother, also Scottish, didn't get ANY Ireland/Scotland/Wales. Instead, she got 14.9% Scandinavian. Another Scottish DNA relative only got 6.4% Ireland/Scotland/Wales, and weirdly got 42.1% North and West Europe.
    So, if you say there's no way in hell you're only 13.6% Irish and Scottish, I believe you! This test is totally bonkers for some people when it comes to this category.

    My Auntie (who is really attached to her Scottish ancestry, and hey, who isn't?) is 29% Scottish and MyHeritage didn't give her any in this category. She was pretty upset and so I looked into this for her. My dad didn't get any either, but then his other sister got almost a perfect reflection of their known ancestry on her MyHeritage upload. So occasionally it appears to produce a good result but for most it seems not to be the case.

    Irish/Scottish can be your German.
