    Does K36 corroborate unexpected AncestryDNA results?

    I’ve posted on here before about my grandmother’s Ancestry results and I’ve finally uploaded her raw data to GEDMatch and ran her K36 map. I’ve attached both. Long story short, her known ancestry is half English and Scottish on one side, and half colonial American on the other. She gets a whopping 16% Swedish on her Ancestry results that I can’t find any records to back up, most of her colonial side goes back to England or Scotland as well, but there’s a good amount of lines that I’ve hit brick walls on on that side. No records for the 4% Norway and 4% Germanic but those don’t seem like out of line amounts for colonial results.

    I know Colonial American’s usually receive results from E/W/NWE, Ireland and Scotland, Germanic, And Norway/Sweden usually in that order from greatest to least. I know it’s nearly impossible to parse apart Colonial results, so please don’t get me wrong, I’m not attempting to do that.
    With the large amount of Sweden, does the K36 map possibly point to the 16% being accurate and not some weird overshot by Ancestry?
    I’m curious what anyone with better understanding of the GEDMatch tools thinks of this.
