    Mines will probably provide more clarity when I get more matches, I only have a few hundred.

    I had one GC at 20% -- Irish in Donegal East, which checks with my Irish line.
    The more I learn about this DNA stuff the less I know.

    I'm in three GCs and definitely have roots in each:

    Early Settlers of Tennessee & The Deep South
    Settlers of the North Carolina-South Carolina Border
    Early Settlers of the Lower Midwest & Virginia
    Estimated ancestry drawing on Living DNA and family history:
    English 36%, Scottish 24%, Irish 17%, Welsh 16%, German 4.5%, Scandinavian 1.3%, Netherlands 0.6%, French 0.6%

    Y-DNA leads to Isle of Skye then to Isle of Lewis, Scottish Highlands: R1b > M343 > L278 > L754 > L389 > P297 > M269 > L23 > L51 > L151/L11 > P312 > Z290 > L21/M529 > DF13 > L513/DF1 > S5668 > A7 > Z21253 > S7834 > S7828 > BY11203 > BY11186 (about 320-550 years old)

    MTDNA leads to Glamorganshire, South Wales: K1a4a1a1

    The GC's are damn good eh? I imagine for an adopted person starting from scratch they would be incredibly useful as they would supply a starting point
    Paper trail ancestry to the best of my knowledge:
    English 28.12%, German 18.75%, Scottish 17.96%, Irish (mostly lowland Scottish origin) 12.5%, French 8.2%, Eastern European 6.25%, 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, French, and Native American, but these percentages would be minuscule.

    Absolutely, especially if they improve or refine the program.

    I'm still not quite about their methodology though because I'd expect to have an Eastern European GC as well. They immigrated to the US during the big rush to North America between 1875 and 1900. I think I have enough matches to support it.

    AMERIJOE:

    All of the Genetic Communities are very accurate that my family has been assigned to. I think it's the same with other's results I've read that there are some communities "missing" that I feel we should have, but the ones that are actually assigned are accurate.
    Genetic Communities
    Father: French Settlers Along the St. Lawrence, English Newfoundlanders, Scots, Early Settlers of New York, Settlers of the Massachusetts Coast and Nova Scotia
    Mother: Settlers of Southeastern New York

    My genetic community is correct in that it is Irish in Southern Ireland but I have no genetic community assigned for Connacht and all my father's ancestry going back generations is from the Sligo/North Roscommon area. I did receive the correct genetic community for my mother's ancestry though but surprised I only have one genetic community assigned.

    The drop downs for the regional Genetic Communities has disappeared, how do I get that functionality back again?

    Nqp15hhu: only a few hundred matches in Ancestry that is wierd, I'd have thought many thousand! Have you uploaded to GEDmatch? And how does that compare in numbers?

    Chelle: on your OP you said you hoped for British regions. I recommend livingDNA for that and their price is reduced at present. We are very detail conscious on this forum (being pedantic helps in genealogy) so disregard much of the criticism
    Out of 64 pre 1800 births 44% Cheshire, 1% Worcestershire, 1% Scottish (or Irish), 25% south Derbyshire, 13% Burton on Trent area (where 4 counties within 10 miles), 7% Shropshire, 1% Staffs, 8% Lancs
