    I am experiencing the same thing.

    Perhaps something wonderful is happening (or not)

    I'm presuming that by "common" communities Ancestry means those shared on that parent's side. This would make sense for the four that Ancestry shows me -- Appalachian Settlers of Kentucky and Virginia & Eastern Kentucky Settlers on my maternal side, and Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, Northern West Virginia & Maryland Settlers and Early Pennsylvania Settlers on my paternal side.

    However, this doesn't explain why both of my other two communities -- Eastern Ohio River Valley & Northern Blue Ridge Mountains Settlers and Western Gulf States Settlers -- were omitted as "common" communities. I can understand it, I think, for the first of these: although most ancestors shown under this community are on my father's side, there are a few who were on my mother's side. Potentially Ancestry could list this one as a "both".

    But this doesn't explain why the second of these "common" communities was also omitted. As nearly as I can tell, Western Gulf States Settlers is exclusive to my mother's side. The only person I've found -- ancestor or current match -- who is also on my father's side has been one of my nieces. Since she's my father's granddaughter, of course she's also on my father's side -- but only because she's my mother's granddaughter too.

    In any case, I can't see why Western Gulf States Settlers isn't included among my maternal common communities, since that's clearly where it belongs.

    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.

    Lol yeah I saw, we should have more relevant communities. It should be easy to add a Libyan, Moroccan, Tunisian and Algerian community

    They need to do better for Africans in general. 1 GC (Eastern Africa) for the whole of SSA is pitiful.
