I'm 100% Ireland/Scotland. What's interesting is I do think their 'genetic community' calculator can't handle people who are 'mixed' (in sense their grandparents come from geographic distant parts of one geographic group).
So for example my father is also 100% Ireland/Scotland and has 'Ulster' specifically
- Tyrone, Derry and Antrim
- South Derry and East Antrim
His father was from Belfast, however his mother was from East Galway (his grandfather as well, but his grandmother was from half Cork/half Killkenny)
In turn my mother who is from North Clare got a spot on result:
She gets 4 Munster Genetic Communities in her result.
In comparison I end up with 'Munster' and three Munster Genetic communities:
Basically their calculator appears to only be able to see distinct sub-clusters of a region (eg. North Clare etc.) when you have a number of great-grandparents from that region. When you have ancestors bit more distant added in they basically don't show up.
Now I should point out that of my 8 great-grandparents the following holds true:
- 4 from Clare
- 1 from East Galway
- 1 half Kilkenny and half Cork
- 1 from Belfast
- 1 who was Liverpool Irish (but of Ulster origin)
It's quite possible as a result that in the 50% I got from my dad that the autosomal contribution from my grandmother (Galway/Cork/Kilkenny) was higher (eg. greater then 50%) then what I got from my grandfather. In which case I'm not surprised that 'Munster' would win out as a result.
(For the record I was born and raised in Galway)
