    Reference populations for AncestryDNA

    Attachment 12078

    I had given up on trying to find out where their population samples come from, until I came across this little image...

    Does anyone have a larger version?

    Thank you

    Interesting looks like nothing in Northern Scotland. Can't see if they cover SW Scotland or not, which is where the Scot I do have would be located. Looks like it goes a little into SE Scotland maybe to Edinburgh.

    Yeah, I wish they would cover Argyll-Bhute I have a feeling I have a strong genetic affinity for that part of Scotland.

    I wanted a closer look at where those littler markers were.
    Flags represent known or paper trail ancestry from greatest to least:
    England, Scotland, Austro-Hungarian Empire, (Galicia Poland) French-Canadian, and Dutch American settlers.

    If they use the 1000 Genomes samples, these include 4 people with 4 grandparents born in Argyll and Bute.

    If you want to see averages of many populations you can use the Excel spreadsheet (Dataset 3 ) here :

    Did you happen to find an image showing AncestryDNA's reference populations for other parts of the world?

    quite a few gaps for France, Scotland and the Balkans. even the Italian heel is underrepresented.

    So there is a limited reference population for Scotland? Interesting.
