1. ## Experiment with Vahaduo modern scaled Distance Feature

I was playing with the scaled modern individual version of Vahaduo.

When I used the distance tab, I noted that I had several Welsh and English individual samples, which is good based on my known ancestry; See my signature for my paper trail percentages.
but when I run it on the single tab, they aren't there. Instead they've been eclipsed by the Irish, Dutch, Danish, etc samples which aren't very representative of my actual ancestry.

So I decided to do a little experiment:
On the Distance tab I set the Max output to 75, copied and pasted the results into a spreadsheet, and repeated process for 100 output.
In excel I sorted the populations by name

Of my top 75
7 Danish
2 Dutch
6 English
5 English Cornwall
3 French Brittany
5 Icelandic
13 Ireland
2 Norwegian
13 Scottish
1 Shetlandic
1 Swedish
10 Welsh

Of my top 100
12 Danish
2 Dutch
10 English
5 English Cornwall
5 French Brittany
1 French Nord
2 German
6 Icelandic
18 Irish
2 Norwegian
15 Scottish
2 Shetlandic
3 Swedish
11 Welsh

Using excel (copy/paste/sort) I figured out how many total samples there were for each of these populations, and calculated what percentage of the total I had for my cloest 75 and 100 samples

The results: Percentage of total samples in my top 75 closest individual samples
50% of Welsh (10 of 20 Welsh samples in my top 75)
46.4% of Scottish
41.7% of Icelandic
38.5% of Cornwall
33.3% Shetlandic
31.6% of English
28.6% of Norwegian
15.9% Danish
15.3% of Irish
14.3% of Swedish
7.5% of French Brittany
3.1% of Dutch

For my top 100 closest on the Distance tab
66.7% of the Shetlandic (2 out of 3 total)
60% of the Orcadian (6 of 10)
55% of the Welsh (11 of 20)
53.6% of the Scottish (15 of 28)
52.6% of the English (10 of 19)
50% of Icelandic (6 of 12)
38.5% of English Cornwall (5 of 13)
28.6% of Norwegian (2 of 7)
27.3% of Danish (12 of 44)
21.2% of Irish (18 of 85)
14.3% of Swedish (3 of 21)
12.5% of French Brittany (5 of 40)
3% of French Nord (1 of 33)
3.1% of Dutch (2 of 64)
2.5% of German (2 of 79)

Note that similar to my paper ancestry, the English, Scottish, and Welsh have much higher percentages than the Dutch, German, Danish, and Irish who tend to dominate my Single runs on Vahaduo.

Curious if other members also see results that are also more reflective of their ancestry.
