    Sadly No. I've tried that one as well! I would give the 23&me v3 WGS Extract a whirl however, after checking the ISOGG wiki for overlap, to see if it's worth it!

    Not wishing to sound like a broken record, but that's not what it means! Think two-way traffic between Ireland and Scotland, think reference population size and use etc. It just means you happen to match these reference samples closely. It's not concrete!

    With that in mind, I'd give it a miss until we see an update to reference samples and/or algorithm, and you feel more confident about the improvement in other peoples results. At the moment you do at leat have access to the DNA test with the best reference population samples for yourself. I'd stick with that I just can't help blowing money on any of these tests......I'm practically pathological now!

    I did a 23andMe upload and then a LivingDNA kit (results below). For me, the kit was more accurate for my Irish and North Germanic/Scandinavian ancestry. As far as the accuracy of the UK regional ancestry, I am fairly clueless as most of my English ancestors came to North America in the late 17th and early 18th century.
