    Judging by the images there is a good chance the Middle East category has finally been broken into multiple different ones (Egypt, Peninsular Arabia and Levant at minimum). Greek Islanders might also get their own category different to Greek & Albanian. I wonder if it's just the addition of new categories or also a change in their algorithms/methods to improve the accuracy.

    I hope it is the second, if they are just adding more regions it might mean that the results will be even more inaccurate for many people. My particular results aren't that bad apart from the British percentages everyone gets, but I have seen truly absurdities coming from AncestryDNA.

    I hope this doesn’t that mean a return to the Ireland and Scotland category again. This is useless for me.

    To please Americans and English members a new Scotland and Northern England category would be a better solution, alongside improved reference populations.

    More Central European references and regions would be great.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in the image.. clearly they are showing some ancestry regions and not others (for instance, you can't see the England & NW European or North African here). But it does look like maybe Egypt is it's own region now and not lumped with the Middle East (which appears to not be showing as well). The Ireland and Wales categories appear to be unchanged.

    Yes I guess you're right about Wales and the Beara peninsula in West Cork and Kerry..My sister has more of our Beara great great so she has that..We both mostly just have North Wales

    Judging by this screenshot, they finally separated EE and Russia . But?!?? Included Northern Bulgaria and Romania in the Eastern Europe region . I definitely don’t like this. Right now the Balkans region is what it should be. Hope I’m not right. They previously included the Balkan countries in the EE region before the latest update. It’d be nonsense to do that again.
