    I log in and I see Ancestry Report Improved!
    Before it is showing West Eurasian 100%
    49% North Slavic
    44% Italian
    7% Ambiguous

    Now it is showing.
    West Eurasian 100% (I think they meaning 100.7%)
    49% North Slavic
    44% South/Central European
    7.7% Ambiguous

    Italian category change, it is now South/Central European

    South/Central European
    Includes: Italian/Bergamo, Italian/Tuscan and Toscani in (Bergamo, Tuscany and 1 other site) Italy
    Does not include: Albanian in Albania; Basque/French in France; Italian/EastSicilian, Italian/WestSicilian and Sardinian in (Sardinia and 2 other sites) Italy and Lithuanian in Lithuania


    But yeah Eralia I think you are right. I hope that they will get more samples.
    They changed north/central European to northwest European.

    Lol so a person from DNA.Land emailed me. Source files?

    Dear Shaquile,

    Thank you so much for taking part in DNA.Land!

    Our “Sardinian” cluster is made up of source files from Sardinia. That being said, until very recently we grouped together all Ancestral Cluster percentages below 5% in a user’s Ancestry Report. That change was made in the most recent version of the report to give users as much information as possible.

    Think of your genome as a beam of light. The reference panel of each service’s algorithm acts as a prism that decomposes this beam of light to its potential components. Since each prism has different physical properties, the rainbows they produce will all be at least a little bit different.



    As each reference panel has its own strengths and caveats, it is best to observe your genomes through as many prisms as you can. Only in this way can you better illuminate your past.



    Thank you,

    Richard

    I should ask them why they think I'm part Finnish.

    DNA.Land is very inaccurate.

    As someone who has tested himself and his family with many different tools and companies, I could easily say that DNA.Land's results are one of the least reliables.

    I wouldn't take what they say seriously, if you are having the test for identity issues, and not just for fun or curiosity.

    French & German = 17% here, and I haven't had a foreign ancestor in over 300 years at least.
    It is natural for English people to get French and German on 23andme. Compared to the other British/Irish peoples, the English have a continental European pull due to their history (Germanic tribes, such as the Angles and Saxons, Normans, etc.). This continental pull is the reason why the English don't have a Celtic identity, such as the Irish, Scots, and the Welsh.

    Also, I find it hard to believe that Poles would be waving German flags around, as the Poles have a great dislike for Germany.

    Yeah, I think so - "North/central European" and "Northeast European" could easily be from your German side. Especially if your ancestors were East Germans, then "North Slavic" and "Finnish" should not be surprising. A lot of West Slavic and West Baltic (Old Prussian) people were assimilated (Germanized) throughout history. Do you know from which region were your German ancestors?

    "Finnish" could easily show up in East Prussian Germans for sure.
