    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.

    Details on:

    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.

    Irish/Scottish can be your German.

    About time. There is no way in hell that I'm only 13.6% Irish/Scottish.
    Target: mildlycurly_scaled
    Distance: 1.3578% / 0.01357814
    57.0 Irish
    37.6 English
    2.6 Roma_Barcelona
    1.8 Ashkenazi_Germany
    1.0 Roma_Granada


    Known ancestry: Irish (inc. Traveller), English, Scottish, Romanichal, German, Jewish (Ashkenazi+some Mizrahi), minor French, Spanish, Belgian, Norwegian and Berber. Distant Sami admix (from the Viking era) is also suspected.

    Has anyone actually contacted my heritage to find out when they are actually going to release these new features?

    I did yesterday. They said they don't have any information as of yet, but it will be soon and will let everyone know when they do on the blog.
