    MacEochaidh, they don't make it easy. Finally had the time to review the thread. Seems the discussions have produced more questions than answers. Too bad we can't have a Q&A with the pop. geneticists who referenced this pinwheel of discovery. I try to keep an open mind concerning DNA and stay away from personal opinion, for it can quickly cloud the truth. That said, all of these admixtures are totally based on opinion with its various silvers of truth neatly wrapped in conjecture. If I want to be Welsh, I have an admixture for that, Irish no problem, as a matter of fact I can be any ancestry derived within the British Isles, which for me was a good thing. It proved autosomally, I am 98% a Brit. Growing up I was told different, but always knew the fit was not right. A previous post went along the lines of what difference does it make if you're 98% British? For me it made all the difference in the world. That percentage alone was worth the time and investment. It recently provided me with concrete information to approach my wife of 42 yrs. and for the first time tell her the man she knew, as my father, was not. I had many decades to prepare for my results, but for those who experience the emotional upheaval of questionable patronage, my heart goes out to you.

    I've recently started to research my mum's line and found Irish, Scottish, and English ancestors. My Scottish ancestors are from Dumbartonshire, Stirlingshire, Lanarkshire, and Ross-Shire. All my Irish ancestors immigrated to Great Britain in the mid 1800's. Some to the lowlands of Scotland and one marrying a Londoner, this may be where part of my English may come from. It is interesting to note that livingdna matches much of what I have uncovered. The balance of the results may be correct, but for now will remain a question mark until a paternal match materializes.

    I've included my results for comparison. MacEochaidh, my grandmother, Irish of course, was a Docherty (O'Dochartaigh), sound familiar? My map places me a little northwest of you.

    Thanks, Joe, it appears we are not far off from each other in our autosomal results. This only gives me more reason for me to be astonished at my receiving only 4% Isles on myOrigins 2.0. I also can't see any reason for receiving 96% Western & Central Euro on myOrigins 2.0. As a man with three grandparents from Belfast I realize that I have a greater chance for English ancestry that many parts of Ireland, but nothing points to my Belfast ancestors being from the Western & Central European Continent. Also, I can't see how my 25% French Canadian ancestry can cause a score of 96% Western & Central European.

    The biggest problem I have is trying to make sense of the senseless The FTDNA myOrigins 2.0 is a failure.
