    Post your AncestryDNA communities and your 23andme location matches

    Which do you find reflects your ancestry more? Did any regions get missed off?

    I'll start:

    23andme England.PNG
    23andme Ireland.PNG
    AncestryDNA Region Matches.PNG

    My regional ancestry for the last 150 years is as follows. Note: It's only accurate to the best of my knowledge.

    County Mayo 25%, Essex 25%, London 15.625%, Hampshire/Southampton 12.5%, Lancashire/Liverpool 9.375%, Devon 6.25%, Suffolk 3.125%, County Cavan 3.125%

    The maps seem to be largely consistent and reflect most of my known ancestry. I'm a very strong match to North Connacht and County Mayo in both.

    Hampshire and Southampton are notably absent. My great grandmother was from Southampton. However, it's possible she wasn't representative of the Hampshire community.

    Post your communities and location matches and discuss, even if you got none.

    I don’t have 23 and me. It doesn’t look very accurate.





    Actual ancestry:

    Ulster Irish: 60%
    Ulster Scots: 40%

    Donegal; maternal gg grandmothers ancestry
    Inishowen: maternal gg grandmother
    Central Donegal: nothing.

    Tyrone, Londonderry and Antrim: all sides
    South Londonderry and East Antrim: all sides.

    I have no documented Antrim ancestry though my paternal side lives very close to Antrim.

    West Cental Scotland: no idea, certainly not in the last 200 years. I have a lot of matches in Glasgow especially through ancestors who moved there. This may be migratory.

    Scottish lowlands: I think this is plantation ancestry, though I am not sure how it is detecting this as it is so far back.

    I don't think 23andme is inaccurate necessarily (at least not compared to other testing companies). The ethnicity estimates seem to be broadly correct for most people, and it's identified County Mayo, Merseyside and Essex as being high likely matches.

    I think the location matches tend to give people big cities as lots of people (lots of my family included) migrated to the cities.

    Do you have connections in those gb cities? It seems grossly wrong.

    No, I don't. I've always said that my known ancestry is only from Connacht. People in Ireland seem to always get 10 UK regions even if they have no ancestry from the UK. There's also always 10 Irish regions as well.

    As you can see, your matches from which the provinces being calculated on 23andme and your assignment on AncestryDNA overlap. Both show you have a genetic imilarity and matches with people from South Eastern Poland and South Western Ukraine respectively, so basically from old South Eastern Poland. You have no ancestry or relatives from Lviv?

    All I know about my Polish ancestors, that there were settlers in Podolia, Vinnitsya oblast in Ukraine, I read Poles moved to there from Lublin region. I saw usually people from Lviv score very high Balkan on MyHeritage and increased Greek and Balkan, mine Balkan is very low if I do not count my southern ancestry. I was also trying to model my self with Galician samples on G25 and Gedmatch calculators and distance is very high. About 3 on Global 25 and about 5 on Gedmatch.

    That is what I found in wikipedia about Polish minority in Ukraine

    "The resettlement of larger groups of Poles to the territory of modern Ukraine began in the XIV century, after the incorporation of Galicia into Poland [2]. Mass resettlements occur in the XVII-XVIII centuries. and were due to the defeat of Poland in the war with Turkey and the strengthening of the oppression of the Polish peasants, who were looking for a better fate in the "eastern kresy" [2]. The Polish population was sent to the Right Bank (Volyn, Podillia, partly Western Kiev region), as well as to Eastern Galicia [2]. In the middle of the XVI century. peasants from the eastern provinces of Poland - Lublin, Rzeszow, Krakow, moved to Ukraine in the XVII - XVIII centuries, after the Union of Lublin increased the number of immigrants from the central regions of Poland, Mazovia and partially the Mazury Poozerie [3]."

    Well, you have genetic relatives in these Southern regions, that's for sure.
