    Thanks for taking the effort to contact them, hoping it is soon, as it does look rather promising.

    I'll be curious what will happen with my ~40% Scandinavian(?), and my ~7% Ashkenazi(?).

    They have to improve for sure...
    I always like to get advice/opinion on my results. Hidden Content

    With Ancestry releasing their new (Crappy) update, I am sure MyHeritage won't be far behind.

    Yeah. My brother got his AncestryDNA update. It was even worse.

    It seems like from what they presented on the video that the update will mean they need to rebuild much of their site before the update goes live.

    I’m rather fond of MyHeritage’s results. They are extremely vague for me, but perhaps that is why they are accurate, and maybe even more so than many of the other commercial sites I’ve tested with.

    My Heritage for me has been decent. Across all 3 uploads, there is a very accurate regional big picture. They seem to struggle with smaller, more precise details, so hopefully this will improve.

    Really excited for this, but I have that "I can't wait any longer!" feeling. I wish they'd give us a time frame, before, they said "Really soon" but it's past the really soon point IMO.
    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.

    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.
