    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).
    They updated mine, and now one is all British and Irish, and the other is roughly 40% unidentified NW Europe and 60% Scandinavian. My mother's father's mother (the source of one of her X chromosomes) was 100% Swedish, so that makes sense, and I know I have a significant X match with a 2nd cousin whose father's mother was the same g-grandmother.

    Is this real? I mean my mother is 100 % Swedish.
    Is this 23andMe? Or are you doing it with Gedmatch? Assuming 23andMe, does it look like some of your Swedish is being reported as French and German? (I know some of the Italian probably gets put in those categories.)
