    Reference populations for AncestryDNA

    I had given up on trying to find out where their population samples come from, until I came across this little image...

    Does anyone have a larger version?

    Thank you

    Interesting looks like nothing in Northern Scotland. Can't see if they cover SW Scotland or not, which is where the Scot I do have would be located. Looks like it goes a little into SE Scotland maybe to Edinburgh.

    Yeah, I wish they would cover Argyll-Bhute I have a feeling I have a strong genetic affinity for that part of Scotland.

    I wanted a closer look at where those littler markers were.
    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.

    If they use the 1000 Genomes samples, these include 4 people with 4 grandparents born in Argyll and Bute.

    If you want to see averages of many populations you can use the Excel spreadsheet (Dataset 3 ) here :

    Did you happen to find an image showing AncestryDNA's reference populations for other parts of the world?

    quite a few gaps for France, Scotland and the Balkans. even the Italian heel is underrepresented.
