    Testing for Specific Regions within UK?

    Hello,

    What is the most accurate commercial test for determining regional ancestry within Great Britain?

    Iíve tried 23andMe. Is Living DNA worth a go? Are there any other fairly accurate tests for this region?

    Thanks!

    I can only speak from a perspective of someone who has done livingdna as an upload rather than testing directly through them. Their breakdown for Great Britain and Ireland for me is actually pretty good, just a bit on the low side. It's the rest of it that is a bit problematic, I wonder if I tested directly whether their analysis would be any different.
    Ethnogene: 51.4% NW European, 21.6% W European, 10.1% Southeastern African, 9.5% Southeast Asian, 4.4% South Asian, 2% Scandinavian, 1% East African
    Papertrail @ 2xggrandparents: 37.5% London, 25% Dorset, 25% Mauritius, 6.25% Netherlands, 6.25% Hampshire
