    The 'West and Central Europe' cluster is primarily Western European (France, Switzerland, Belgium, SW Germany) and to a lesser extent Central (East Germany/Austria/Czechia).

    Yeah, I feel like MyHeritage has sucked for me the worst so far. I havent tried Ancestry yet, but Id like to eventually.
    23andme does seem the most accurate so far imo.

    She said last she checked it was mostly Scandinavian...38% Scandinavian/30% Great Britain /17% Ireland/Scotland/Wales. I told her to check again. She doesn’t sound very enthusiastic so I’m not very hopeful lol.
    The Manx Y-DNA project is quite interesting though; a high number of these haplogroups indicate a possible Scandinavian origin. I'm sure it's only a matter of time until companies like Ancestry or 23andme are able to include it as a standalone region/genetic community.
    Yeah, that is interesting. I had been folllowing that project myself. It would be nice if they added the Isle of Man.

    ha, NP. It’s kind of relevant, but very interesting. I don’t mind

    Here’s my K36 Map

    Don't give up hope just yet that's an old estimate for sure, since 'Ireland/Scotland/Wales' got converted to 'Ireland & Scotland' in the last update and 'Scandinavian' now no longer exists, now it gets broken down by country. I can't remember how I got my new result, but I'm sure that there must be an option to enable beta results somewhere in the settings (assuming that she's not on an extremely old genotyping chip, as I'm not sure if Ancestry are actively rolling out updates for those people yet) - sometimes even re-clicking 'Ethnicity & Origins' triggers the site to refresh the latest data for me. Either way, there's allegedly a new ethnicity breakdown coming for everyone by the end of the year, so it will be interesting to see what that brings.

    Nice map, looks similar to my father's. Would be interesting to see your sister's map compared against yours, to see if she's really as Scandi-shifted as Ancestry would have her believe.
