    Thank you both, much appreciated! I am myself half Dutch and i received a 47% "Europe West" score on Ancestry, which seemed a much better fit than my score on 23&me where my Dutch side is described as a combination of practically equal parts of "British & Irish" and "French & German" plus some minor "Scandinavian". It will be interesting to see where this "Europe West" region peaks. I have seen some impressive scores for Dutch people however quite a few of them also have socalled "Great Britain" in first place.

    No, it spaniards from the 1000genomes project, which are from almost all regions of Spain

    edit : you are asking for the "iberian component" it peaks in Basques with 100%

    My North German ancestry is interpreted as British and Scandinavian in many cases, even if there are German samples. West or South German or even average German samples are less close to North German than British or some Scandinavian. Dutch, above all North Dutch, are very similar to North German.
    Y-DNA: R1b/U152/Z36/CTS4333/CTS7958, from Thuringia 1634, probably Alsace 1552, -- mt-DNA: H
    EUROGENES K13: North German 3.7, North Dutch 4.85, Danish 5.13, Swedish 5.44, Norwegian 5.7 -- West Eurasia K8: WHG 46.64%, ENF 39.09%, ANE 14.23%
    23andMe: speculative 26% French&German, 11.3% Scandinavian, 9.1% Eastern European, 8.8% British&Irish, 1.6% Southern European, 38% Broadly North Euro
    Known ancestry: 92.6% German (66.8% North German), 4.7% Danish, 1.8% Czech, 0.8% Austrian, 0.1% Swiss

    I have seen other Sicilian results, I can try to find them. I also saw a Greek islander from the Cyclades with 12% Caucasus, 6% Middle East, 6% Ashkenazi and the rest Italian/Greek for what it's worth.

    Greeks scoring "Middle East" above 5% are likely to be islanders. I notice Sicilians tend to score more of the Middle East category and Greeks more of the Caucasus.

    Africa North < 1%
    Europe West 67%
    Ireland 21%
    Scandinavia 5%
    Great Britain 4%
    Finland/Northwest Russia 2%

    Thanks! That's indeed a high "Europe West" score however from my own survey it seems that the group averages are hiding a lot of underlying variation. Among 26 British results 14 people had "Great Britain" in first place, 4 had "Ireland" instead and 3 had "Scandinavia" as primary region. For 5 people it was "Europe West " being reported with the highest amount, ranging from 57% to 31%.

    I score precisely half of that amount, that's why I'm asking.

    Most likely fit is 62.4% (+- 9.5%) Europe (various subcontinents)

    I got 13 West Asian (Caucasus 11% and 2 % ME) and 5% European Jewish.

    Most of these line up nicely with the "Genetic Diversity" tab on the population descriptions. It's exciting to see them side by side to answer the "where do I get my...." questions.
