    Intriguing, my mumsí shared communities have changed. She used to have the Scottish Lowlands as a shared community for both parents.

    Interesting to see Munster appearing in my maternal Grandaís shared communities. I have never seen that before.

    Iím not convinced it means any recent ancestral link though. Potentially maybe further back, as in 1700ís.

    Paternal:



    Maternal:



    No changes for me or my father but food for thought on potential connections, geographically.

    When did they change for your mom? I’m asking because they used to change 2 or 3 times since their first release for many people; but not anymore at least for me.

    However, for my father his father has two American GCís in the Appalachians that we have no connection to.
    No connection other than the large amount of people from Ulster who emigrated to those regions. Those regions are just that,"Genetic" Communities, not "Ancestral" Communities. Quebec and Acadia are "Genetic" Communities to French and Breton testers.

    Another triumph of terminological confusion.
    When they are just for you they call them "communities".
    When they are estimated as just coming from one or other parent - that is, distinct - they call them "common communities"!

    There is a change in the common communities; at least for my results. They removed 2 from each parent.
    Now I have:
    Two American colonial communities for parent 1
    Parent 2:
    Southern Poland& Eastern Slovakia
    Northeast Poland

    Yes indeed, mine changed as well, I now have 3 each:

    Paternal:
    Northeastern Hungary & Eastern Slovakia
    Southern Poland & Eastern Slovakia
    Slovakia & Hungary

    Maternal:
    Early Connecticut & New York Settlers
    Munster, Ireland
    New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania Settlers

    I think this is good news as it seems they are continuing to tweek the algorithm. Hopefully soon we also get some of those unassigned matches to move over to assigned. And maybe even, fingers crossed, SideView applied in a way that assists in our own personal community assignments.

    That’s for our mutual Southern Poland & Eastern Slovakia common community; I took it from one Carparho- Rusyn group . 7F0F002A-887E-4DD1-B29C-DBF4852A009D.jpeg

    They are doing this community change for 3rd or 4th time. During one of the changes, I got few more matches assigned, but very few- I went from 47 do 63 for parent 1 and got 10 more assigned matches for parent2.
    It’s December so maybe more matches will be assigned.
    Fingers crossed!
    Edit: now I have again 4 communities, the same as the previous ones.

    I've noticed what seems to be a glitch in both one of the common communities Ancestry identifies for me, and in two of the ones they identify for my wife.

    First, here are the communities Ancestry identifies for me:

    Early Pennsylvania Settlers
    Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, Northern West Virginia & Maryland Settlers
    Eastern Ohio River Valley & Northern Blue Ridge Mountain Settlers
    Virginia & Eastern Kentucky Settlers
    Appalachian Settlers of Kentucky
    Western Gulf States Settlers

    Here are my wife's:

    Early Connecticut & New York Settlers
    Connacht, Ireland
    Early Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana & East Texas Settlers
    Eastern North Carolina Settlers
    Northern Mid-Atlantic Settlers

    But here are what Ancestry gives for my common communities:

    Maternal
    Virginia & Eastern Kentucky Settlers
    Western Gulf States Settlers
    Early Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana & East Texas Settlers
    Appalachia Settlers of Kentucky

    The fourth item in this list doesn't correspond to any of my communities. However, it does match one of my wife's. And if I click on it, it goes to my "ethnicity estimate" page instead of bring up anything on this community. This is probably because this is not my community, and Ancestry has simply messed up.

    All of my paternal communities seem to be okay.

    Now, for my wife Ancestry lists these maternal common communities:

    [indent]Appalachian Settlers of Kentucky
    Virginia & Eastern Kentucky Settlers[/indennt]

    Only, these aren't my wife's communities, but mine. And once again they fail to lead to any match or other info -- just to my wife's "ethnicity estimate" page. (Presumably since the web site doesn't seem to know what the heck is going on.)

    Ancestry does the same darn thing with her paternal common communities, which they list as:

    Early Pennsylvania Settlers
    Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, Northern West Virginia & Maryland Settlers

    And if I click on either one, I get the same useless (mis)behavior as in the other cases.

    Obviously, Ancestry has gotten some wires crossed.
    Besides British-German-Catalan, ancestry includes smaller amounts of French, Irish, Swiss, Choctaw & another NA tribe, possibly Catawba. Avatar picture is: my father, his father, & his father's father; baby is my eldest brother.
