    My update, they've fixed the mess of the last 2 years and it's on point again. Previous estimate in my signature.



    Ethnic inheritance is right, half and half.

    Mine is certainly better, and aligns with 23 and me a bit more. Seems like Ancestry has improved this time around. The Sweden and Denmark vs. Germanic is still a bit messy, but understandable.. What I have confirmed, if everything was clean and cut and dry: 25% southern Italian and 12.5% Swedish. The rest is a mix of English/Irish and Dutch/Germanic so its no surprise that this area is always changing with each update. I have zero Norwegian or Danish, rather the part of Sweden, Vermaland is close to Norway so its likely just shared ethnic similarities. My guess is its the same with Denmark and NW German as well

    Why do they add up the regions ; this doesn’t seem right.
    For example: I have 65% the Balkans
    It gives me: parent 1: 38%
    parent 2:27 %
    If my parents were with these percentage, I guess I’d have 30- 31% the Balkans? Not 27+38=65
    This is done with all my other regions.

    This wasn't expected.

    As a family, each of our Scottish percentages decrease with each update. Since receiving my fathers' results last year, his Scottish percentage has decreased significantly, by around 15% points - I know some are happy with this, however, lets be honest that's pretty poor for the accuracy of their reference population; at least if the initial results are wrong. If their science was accurate you wouldn't expect a drop of much more than a few percent. Although, looking at Molfishs' results, it seems some have had an even greater discrepancy between updates than my family!

    Anyway, here are our results - NB these don't include all of our Genetic Communities:

    Dad:


    My dad was 52% Scots initially...

    Dads initial results:


    Change in Dad:


    Me:


    I was initially 37% Scots; so that's a 12% decrease for me.

    My initial results:


    Change in me:


    Mum New results:


    Mum Initial results:


    Now, i'm wondering if the next update also bring a Scottish decrease, because at that point i'll have to start wondering about the accuracy of their reference population.

    But, yes the new feature is very interesting. For me it has offered an insight into which grandparent sent over the Ulster Scots percentage and that is correct - so it does seem to be accurate. I didn't realise how Irish my dad's mother was. Nor did I realise that one of my mother's parents had a small percentage of US heritage.

    No, it's correct: You don't just automatically get half of each parents' component. You can get all or none, but the total has to add up to 100%

    Mother's result.

    That's very interesting, and goes to show that the parental contributions are accurate. Though it is concerning how much their percentages change with each update. One has to ask at what point do we assume these updates to be representative of our actual autosomal ethnic make up?

    I mean if the updates change by a couple of percent each time, I'm going to wonder about the accuracy of the results. Because if they're confident in their modelling, they would not need to continue to update!

    This update is spot on for me now

    50% Irish
    48% Scottish
    2% England & NW Europe

    I don't know of any English ancestors but I do have some ancestry from the Borders so there probably is some intermarriage down the line.

    Only disappointing aspect of the update is my lack of Scottish communities, my Irish communities (Galway, North Connemara, Lough Corrib & Lough Mask, Donegal, Inishowen) are spot on though.

    You can extrapolate it out by multiplying by 2. There is a +/-5-10% confidence interval though.

    Looking at my parents it seems accurate.
