    My results just came in, a little underwhelming, but accurate I suppose. The Irish ancestry is really "Briton" in England rather than anything in Ireland.

    Europe West: 67%
    Ireland: 21%
    Scandinavia: 5%

    Low Confidence:
    Great Britain: 4%
    Finland/NW Russia: 2%

    Low Confidence:
    Africa North: 1%

    My Genetic Communities

    English in the South East: Very Likely
    YDNA: R1b-BY50830 Stepney, London, UK George Wood b. 1782 English <-> Bavarian cluster
    maternal-gf YDNA: ?? Gurr, James ~1740, Smarden, Kent, England.
    maternal-gm YDNA: R1b-P311+ Beech, John Richard b. 1780, Lewes, England
    maternal-ggf YDNA R1b-U106 Thomas, Edward b 1854, Sittingbourne, Kent
    paternal-ggf YDNA: R1b-Z17901. Gould, John Somerset England 1800s.
    paternal-ggf YDNA: R1b-L48. Scott, William Hamilton Ireland(?) 1800s

    other:
    Welch: early 1800s E-M84 Kent, England.

    Results :


    Europe 100%

    Regional breakdown:

    Ireland 51%
    Europe West 34%
    Scandinavia 10%

    and low confidence calls

    Britain 2%
    Finland/NW Russia 2%
    Iberia >1%

    Genetic Communities:

    Scots
    Southern English

    Very high Irish score , extremely low British score, which on the face of it is faintly ridiculous , although 'Ireland' apparently includes the Scots (I am very roughly 35% Scottish and 16% Irish) , and 'Europe West' does just about stretch into Southern and Central England (about 20% of my known ancestry) - but I'm reaching here . It doesn't seem to pick up on my hefty Northumberland/Durham ancestry (about 35%) as being 'British' either, unless North East England is indistinguishable from Scots on their chip. Scandinavia gets almost exactly the same score as on LivingDNA.

    Overall ,could have been worse , but more than a little wayward .

    YDNA likely journey simplified : Battle Axe Culture > Nordic Bronze Age > Scandinavian Iron Age > Norsemen > Scots > probably Somerled

    Ancestry: English, Scottish & Irish

    Finally got my results, which I found quite confusing.

    100% European
    91% Great Britain (More British than almost all Brits. LOL)
    3% Ireland
    2% Iberian
    1% Europe East
    1% Europe West
    <1% European Jewish
    <1% Italy/Greece

    Genetic Communities: Connacht Irish (Likely), Settlers of Colonial Pennsylvania: (Possible), Germans in the Midwest: (Possible)

    I understand that the Great Britain and Europe West categories are quite similar, but given that two of my grandparents have classically German last names, I was shocked to only come up as 1% Europe West. I feel like the Genetic Communities correlates with my paper trail pretty well though. Would it possible for a person of mostly German and Irish decent to come out as heavily "Great Britain" as the British are mainly a combination of Celtic and Germanic peoples?

    Holy **** that's the most British percentage I think has ever been handed out. Are you half German and half Irish perchance? my theory is that the Great Britain category is actually more or less a mixture of "Ireland" and "Scandinavia" and you look like you might be living proof of that.

    I think this is the link you need to look at Sktibo.

    Not sure on the percentages, but German, Irish, English on my father's side, German, English and family legend of Lenape on my mother's side.

    I'm not an expert at reading these, but my understanding is that they imply English/Germanic heritage with some Irish as well. Interestingly, the K13 4-population suggests some Eastern European descent.

    if you are interested​ in why i made such a claim i have a thread about this in the ancestry section called categories discussion
