    British and Irish Folks - Who are your closest continental European matches?

    This thread is for British and Irish people who have continental European matches and also for non Brits who have European ancestry which is all British and Irish to their knowledge.

    But I am also interested in general users who have unexpected matches.

    Disclaimer: I have no traceable continental European ancestry. However, some of my family lived in Gibraltar for at least 6 years. European connections either way are possible but unknown.

    Note: This has nothing to do with Brexit and my motivations are solely to investigate my personal ancestry and compare notes with others. Please don't discuss Brexit here.

    I have zero ancestry from Ireland. My ancestry is mostly English, with bits of Scottish and Welsh, and some ancestry from 'Northwestern Europe.' I have a bit of Dutch, one Norwegian, one German ancestor. But on FamilyTreeDNA, all my Y-line matches are in the British Isles. On my Y-line I have only one match outside the British Isles and that individual is Norwegian.

    Interesting that the ones with the largest segments are from Scandinavia.

    I get the same. The largest single segment is someone from Norway:

    Are they part British/Irish or am I part Norwegian? How are we related? I have so many questions

    This is remarkable. Some of you here share over 50 cM with Scandinavians, Germans, Dutch and Frenchmen despite no known ancestry outside of Britain/Ireland. There are people from the small town my parents are from that I share less than 50 cM with.

    That's the million dollar question? In your case, with the long ancestral history of fishing, I suspect it could be either or ! Your Norwegian and Finnish matches are not inconsiderable, especially when considering segment lengths. Do any of the Norwegian or Finns overlap in your matches? Indeed, do any of these matches overlap with individuals you have known ancestry with?

    It's quite interesting that you're largest matches don't align with your parents, or Great Aunt. Are you all tested on different kits?

    I don't know how genuine these matches are since my parents don't match any of my top three matches except one. My mum matches the third highest French match, but for my mum, the match is a 3rd - distant cousin sharing 21.4 cM across 2 segments with the largest being 15.1 cM. The only triangulated segment is on chromosome 16 with it being a larger size for me.

    The kits are all uploads to MyHeritage. We all tested with AncestryDNA except for my dad who tested with FTDNA.
