    With unknowns in my ancestry, I look at it both ways, 20% chance of belonging and an 80% of not.

    How accurate would you rate the above?

    Just means it's less certain about it. My GC's are both at 20% and I definitely have ancestry from both of the regions - quite a bit of it in fact.
    IIRC MacUalraig's "Scots" GC is also 20% and I believe he lives in Scotland? His ancestry is quite certain anyways. Ancestry is just erring on the side of caution, very few people I've seen have incorrect or mismatching GC's.. it's accuracy rate is incredibly high even at 20% probability.

    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English 28.12%, East German or Eastern European 25%, Scottish 17.96%, Scotch-Irish 12.5%, French 8.2%, Welsh 3.125%, Native American 1.95%, and Colonial American, 3.125%, which cannot be determined with complete certainty: there is Dutch (at least 1.36%) and some English. The rest could include Spanish, Norwegian, German, and French, but these percentages would be minuscule.

    So in my case, would that mean Ulster Scots extraction or actual Scottish Ancestors, further back?

    I was a bit confused by your GCs - mine is the combined 'Central Scotland and Ulster Ireland' which is a subset of Scots. You as I understand are in the Ulster Irish GC plus the Scots. Reading their descriptions of the Ulster Irish I'm unclear whether this is supposed to exclude an element of Scot...; not to mention what the difference between my one group and your two are :-)

    Nope. Ulster Irish is a seperate Irish group, my second group is Scots, and no area is defined, just Scotland.

    I think your group is Ulster Scots.

    Yes that's what I said - probably we should put quote marks around their names when they contain 'and' in them ;-)

    I would debate the suggestion that my group is Ulster Scots although I do have a bit of Ulster ancestry for a few generations (Belfast area). Its a minority at least as far as the paper trail goes.

    Perhaps it's Western Scotland then?

    In case you've not spotted you can view all the GCs whether you are in them or not, and read the descriptions. Just go to the bottom and it says

    "See which Genetic Communities are available today." and hit View All.
