    All my closest matches have a Welsh GC, including some 3C2Rs whose ancestors emigrated in the 1850s. My first match without a Welsh community is Wendy, a 4C1R. Two of her 2G grandparents emigrated in the 1850s from the same part of west Wales, they met on the journey and married in America.
    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.

    I'd love to see some aDNA work on these 100 people. I like the idea of a collaboration between Wales and Ireland and hope to see more of this kind even if we leave the EU.
    Living DNA Cautious mode:
    South Wales Border-related ancestry: 86.8%
    Cornwall: 8%
    Cumbria-related ancestry: 5.2%
