    It really does help. I've been trying to get a handle on my Austro-Hungarian-Polish-Romanian-German Ancestry for years, but with no real luck. I try to make some sense of it with DNA estimates, which of course you need plenty of comparison to make use of.
    Polish is the primary suspect in my maternal grandmother's ancestry - both her parents spoke Polish, among other languages, and were from Eastern Europe /AH Empire at the time. Polish was their primary language, and they were Catholic.
    For some reason, I get zero percent Eastern Europe on Ancestry currently - just 3% Baltic. Mom gets 19% Eastern Europe and 2% Baltic.
    But here I get 8.6% Pannonia and 3% East Balkans, and I include Eastern Germanic at 5%. - I wanted to ask you, in your case do you think your NE Germanic percentage is coming from your Polish ancestry or is it entirely attributed to your German?
    So I would think that I should get double what you get for Eastern Europe but it looks like I'm getting fairly similar percentages on Living DNA to you.
    Flags represent known or paper trail ancestry from greatest to least:
    England, Scotland, Austro-Hungarian Empire, (Galicia Poland) French-Canadian, and Dutch American settlers.

    If I had to take a guess, I think my NE Germanic score is mostly representing my Polish ancestry, but it should be hiding at least a bit of western ancestry as well. Hard to tell the exact ratio.

    None of the services are "that good." They have limited resources.

    Hit and miss for me. 65% Southern German which is really good i'd say. But they then give me 32% French there's no way. Probably have a smidge from Alsace. I'd say they turned my British into French. I self estimate 20-30% British.

    I think my French was rather high as well.

    I've not received mine yet. I faintly remember getting some update notification on the homepage but when I clicked results they hadn't changed on any kits (but this may have been from new kits I uploaded the other week). I've emailed them about it. Is it automatic and did you get an email before?

    This is the most accurate ethnicity estimate for me thus far. I’m 50% French Canadian and 50% Wallonia Belgian on paper:

    France 60.6% (Map covers France and part of Wallonia, Belgium)

    South Germanic 37.8 % (Map covers part of Wallonia Belgium and the rest of Belgium)
    I-DF29: ool009 Skane, Sweden 1930-1750 BCE

    Z58, Z59, Z2041, Z2040, Z382, FGC24333

    S26361: VK532 Zealand, Denmark 200-375 CE

    S16414, FGC24354, FGC24357, FGC24356, S10350

    FGC75802/BY19383: VK446 Funen, Denmark 800-1050 CE

    Same for me. I have no known French ancestry. They gave me ten percent. But then they have no regional French categories set up so it’s hard to take seriously anyway. Maybe once they add them...

    This is how it is listed. But they generalize with most of their pops outside of the U.K.

    Europe (North and West)

    Southwest Germanic
    Northwest Germanic
    East Germanic
    France
