    ^ Great idea to post multiple kits, I'll post my mother's at 4 GP/5 cM/colonies off.

    United Kingdom 2.0%
    Ireland 0.6%
    Russia 0.1%
    Norway 0.1%
    Greece 0.1%
    France 0.1%
    Colombia 0.1%
    Poland 0.0%

    The patterns appears plausible based on matches and paper trail, except Greece, which is a single marginal match and does not fit with anything else. (However I should note she does have another Ancestry Finder match to someone of partial Armenian descent.) The Colombian is also something of a mystery but again, is a rather small match.

    Her most significant score is with colonies on: US 18.7%.

    Mine have changed:



    It looks like they've fixed the thing where overlapping segments would both be counted in the "% of genome" value.

    Just another 23andMe game to play ...

    I'm sorry to put a wet blanket over this thread, but I find the Ancestry Finder to be nothing more than an electronic version of a spin-the-wheel lottery.

    My family history is probably representative of a lot of Americans: we've been in this country for more than 8 generations on both sides. I cannot see how this game sorts through and determines my ancestry based upon choosing four grandparental origins, which may in fact, be useful if you or your parents are recent arrivals in the US.

    Another anomaly, at least in my thinking, is the "choice" of "Great Britain" which is after all a geographical amalgamation of various tribes, occupiers and invaders. It has no practical meaning from a genealogists perspective.

    But it's a nice game, so have at it, and enjoy. Just don't take it too seriously!

    Funny ... I WAS adopted, but think it would be a stretch to call such a game an "enormous" clue. In fact, the lack of specificity leads me to think it would cause great confusion instead!

    I have to agree with Griff. All AFI is doing is adding up the percentages of where the matches report their GPs were from. It is not doing a genome calculation. The science isn't there yet. Look at it sort of like a horoscope.
