    Results significantly different from Ancestry. Don't know what to believe anymore!

    Hey guys I just got my 23andme results today. Some of it was expected and some of it is extremely confusing especially in light of my AncestryDNA results. This is frustrating.

    AncestryDNA has me with 18% British. 23andMe I have NONE AT ALL!
    AncestryDNA has me with 6% Ashkenazi with my mother having similar amount and 23andMe NONE!

    23andMe did accurately get the Polish side of my family that I can trace thru my family tree but Ancestry wasn't as accurate there or specific I should say.

    So what do I make of the ZERO British from 23andMe? That was a huge surprise and too my knowledge I have no recent ancestors from that region that I am aware of.

    Anyways Balkan and West Asia is similar but slightly varying amounts.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    May help to see your ancestry results as well. Does ancestry put you into any genetic communities?
    From my experience 23andMe is more accurate, but less precise. What do your broadly numbers look like on 23andme?
    Predominately English, Irish & German with Dutch, Swiss, French & Polish
    Y Haplogroup E-V13 ("Siegel" via Prussia), Mt Haplogroup H24a1 (via Unknown)

    Not sure what the broad numbers are. What do you mean by that?

    Hereís my Ancestry results. I uploaded my 23andMe raw data to Gedmatch. Still waiting for it to process.

    Well, technically you have broadly NW European which can be English as well.

    P.S. Your surname is typical for southern Germany.

    Yeah true. My Reichert name so far Iíve been able to trace through a family tree to Krakow Poland not Germany but you never know. Ancestors could have moved from Germany to Poland.

    How much known English ancestry do you have?
    The more I learn about this DNA stuff the less I know.

    No known English Ancestry at all. Only found out about it last year after taking AncestryDNA test.

    All Iíve known was Sicilian/Italian and Polish.

    OK.

    Just my own experience, but my 23andme results are more accurate than Ancestry. Ancestry gave me 7% Scandinavian and 1% Great Britain. I don't have any known Scandinavian ancestry, and I have approximately 15-20% English. For us Euro-mixed Americans I don't think any of these tests are foolproof.

    Ancestry's GB category isn't really that reliable for many people. Did you find a DNA match with people who are from England or were you basing this on a percentage Ancestry assigned you?
