    I don't. When it comes to my y-chromosome line, I'm Welsh, but when it comes to my overall autosomal ancestry I'm British and Irish that was thrown into an American blender and recombined according to the regional history of North America.

    Here's my Ancestry Ethnicity Estimate, which I think is pretty accurate.

    That's why I don't do Living DNA, because I don't think it would do much good. My ancestors came from Britain and Ireland (and the Netherlands, France, and Switzerland) a long time ago, so in terms of autosomal dna I'm not going to track to one or two particular regions in the Isles, except maybe generally western.
