Anyone tried 24Genetics?
I uploaded my raw DNA from Ancestry and got these results after a week.

Global Vision
- Europe: 100%

Countries
  1. Great Britain - 41,20%
  2. Sweden - 27,20%
  3. Finland - 14,40%
  4. Norway - 12,20
  5. Spain - 4,40%
  6. Ireland - 0,60%
Regional Data
  1. Lancashire - 31,80%
  2. Sweden Sigtuna - 27,20%
  3. Finland Karelia - 14,40%
  4. Finnmark - 12,20%
  5. North East England - 6,20%
  6. Cantabria - 3,60%
  7. South Wales - 1,60%
  8. Navarra Basque - 0,80%
  9. North Wales - 0,80%
  10. Scotland Grampian - 0,80%
  11. Ireland Munster - 0,40%
  12. Galway - 0,20%

I wouldn't be surprised if they have more British samples than Scandinavian ones.

Yes, I tried 24Genetics in late 2017. You are probably correct about an excess of British samples skewing results. However, I have a mostly British background and do not show high Nordic country results on this test whereas your results fittingly show several. On major DNA test companies, I do not show high Scandinavian % (23andMe 0.5%, Ancestry 6%-Sweden), but I also do not show high SW Euro results (0-2%). Therefore, for me, the Cantabria 14% and "Britain" only 0.10% was interesting. My top population match on Eurogenes K13 and K15 is SE English.

Oh,that's a bit odd! Is the Britain part supposed to be a more general category of the British Isles or are they referring to Britonic ancestry? I'm beginning to think that they use more ancient samples, especially as they write " Sweden Sigtuna". They probably refer to the "Sigtuna Viking" samples that I've often seen used in calculators. If my memory hasn't completely failed me I think some of the samples had higher eastern european admixture (Sigtuna is located on the east coast of Sweden) which might have scewed the Swedish results a bit if they were the only samples to have been used.

Furthermore, them using ancient samples might explain your high Cantabria score . Didn't some Celtic-groups first settle in Cantabria? :)

I believe that the 'jury may still be out' on the origins of British, but I personally like the research of Welcomme Trust - People of British Isles genetic study and testing by DNA company Living DNA that uses their samples. The company currently challenges the long-held notion that there is a unified "Celtic" origin, which I admit to finding less romantic than a unified history of related if sometimes warring tribes. Yet, it is probably realistic. I have heard that a similar study is underway for Germany, and probably other European countries are in the works as well.

I cannot find any scientific background on 24 Genetics' test methodology other than how they see more than 500 regions, allegedly more than any other test company. I had the impression that company was testing 500+ year period similar to 23andMe, not ancient results like new co. "My True Ancestry," but I could not find any time reference online yet.

I uploaded my raw DNA from My Heritage, my results agree with other tests, I only have less percentage in North Africa, but in the rest there are not big differences. In sub-Saharan Africa it is sometimes located in eastern Africa (Kenya) and sometimes in western Africa (Senegal / Nigeria), depending on the companies.

Global Vision
EUROPE 91,80 % - AFRICA 7,80 % - RUSSIA 0,40

Countries
Spain 68,00 % - France 14,00 % - Portugal 6,60 % - Kenya 4,40 % - Morocco 3,40 % - Italy 2,00 % - Belarus 1,20 % - Russia 0,40 %
