    Since I posted I’ve been dabbling with DNA painter and my mum has several matches on that X chromosome that are 100% East Asian and they are all Taiwanese with roots in Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong.

    On 23 and Me, my X chromosome is predominantly British and Irish, with a small snip of Native American (I've named it Elizabeth Warren). My mother's father was entirely English (any non English would have been assimilated Huguenot and at any rate a trickle by his birth in 1931) and her mother's father was of a descent exactly like my X chromosome; he was Virginia settler English with some reputed Native American descent which my X chromosome painting proved.

    One of mine is British Isles (good bet that's from my dad, since his mother's ancestry is almost all early colonial American from the British Isles) and the other is about a third British Isles and a third unidentified NW Europe (any part from my mom's dad would have been all Swedish, in fact, since his mother was 100% Swedish, and my mom's mom's part would have been a mix of English/Scots/Irish/German).
    I posted this above, and was referring to my Ancestry upload to 23andMe, which is still the same.

    However, my actual 23andMe test has one of the X as half British/Irish and half Scandinavian, and the other half British/Irish, half unidentified NW European. Based on some matches, I know the X I got from my mom was half from her dad's Swedish mother, since a second cousin of mine (descended from my g-grandmother's sister) and I match there.

    With the update on 23andme my X gained some Chinese and Broadly SSA segments that were previously unassigned. Mum has large segments of unassigned on the pred European one and the other is mostly Chinese and African.
