    Default 23andme Update Chromosome Painting?

    Did anyone else's 23andme chromosome painting change up a bit with the new update?

    Mine looks fairly different compared to before the update, and I'm wondering if it has any effect on my DNA matches/relatives?

    For example, some matches I'll share a segment on a specific chromosome, in the past, that chromosome area was mostly Iberian. Now with the update, it would be mostly Amerindian, my curiosity is how we go from sharing a segment of certain ancestry, to sharing a segment of completely different ancestry.

    As you can see in the pictures below, they don't match, some looked like the bars switched spots, while others are just different altogether.

    Ancestry composition has always been fishy. It look now that 23andme has deleted all ancestry before the 18th century (or 17th - 19th). So the result doesn't cover all your data, only passed segments. I can see this, because my genealogy covers 300-500 years.

    H39 - Thracia 1650 BC, Hungary 5000 BC
    I1 - Transdanubia 5000 BC

    Three simple facts about Finns:
    1. Baltic Finnic languages (including Finnish) never came from the Volga basin along with ancestors of present-day Finns.
    2. Finnish I1 (around 30% of all Finns) has Germanic roots from the late Bronze Age or the early Iron Age.
    3. As to the Finnish prehistory we have no evidences about any Iron Age (or later) east-to-west migration, but many unquestionable evidences about west-to-east migrations.
