I got my 23andme results yesterday. Its the new version v5.9 which has only just been released this month has anyone got their update yet? Its throwing up some very different results for people, latin Americans who usually often are defined by having high unassigned (usually around 10%) have seen this number collapse and it being allocated more accurately to other regions. Similarly with British and Irish people, a lot of "Broadly Northwestern European" has been resolved and allocated to other categories.
On the previous v5.2 version my results were:
British & Irish - 96%
Broadly Northwestern European - 4%
And here are my new results (v5.9):
My mother is from Belfast and her parents are from Downpatrick, Co.Down (mother) Aughnacloy, Co.Tyrone (father) and my dad is from just outside Dundalk and his ancestry lies up along the Louth/Armagh border. Donegal however is my strongest region given I have no known ancestry out west I'm not sure why that is.
My brother previously got 97.5% British and Irish, 1.4% Broadly Northwest European, 1.0% Scandinavian, 0.1 Unassigned. Now finds himself getting 99.7% British and Irish, 0.2% Sardinian, 0.1% unassigned. So both of us do have Sardinian results although his only holds till 60% confidence, mine to 80%. So no idea whether that's a real link and whether the new and improved v5.9 will throw up some peculiar results for some Irish people.
