Interesting results, Redbeard. Does that line up pretty well with any other tests you've taken and your known ancestry?

Ashkenazi background for the most part - ties pretty well with most gedmatch and g25 calculators (and of course ‘yourdnaportal’) - any platform without an ashkenazi reference (very endogamous so it becomes its own ‘nationality’) reflects the ‘ingredients’ only in slightly different proportions

Living DNA are announcing a new ancestry update on Tuesday 28 January 2020. Hopefully they'll be introducing their long awaited breakdowns of Irish and Germanic regions.
Hooray, the Living DNA ancestry updates are here! 8-) It only took about 4-5 processing hours to make me a little less British, a little more NW Euro, and about the same S. Asian but different ethnicity. It is interesting to read the population summaries as they incorporate current anthropological population migration terms such as "Beaker" and "Corded Ware" people.

- English decreased from 60% to 51% (sub-regional gained Lincolnshire, N. Wales & lost S. England & S. Yorkshire)
- SE English, largest original sub-regional, decreased from 19% to 9%
- South Euro changed from Italy (Tuscany & N. Italy) to East Iberia ("Crown of Aragon");
- Non-Euro population - S. Asian - change from 1.4% Pashtun to 1.3% Buruso ("N. Pakistan");

Ancestry Update – (1) New-2020 / (2) Original
• Great Britain & Ireland: 75.9% / 86.9%
• Europe (North & West): 19.2% / 7.1%
• Europe (South): 3.6% (E. Iberian) / 4.5% (N. Italy, Tunisia)
• Other (Asia South – Burusho / Pashtun): 1.3% / 1.4%

For anyone interested in seeing the sub-regional results of person with presumed mostly British Isles ancestry over original & updated 2020 versions:

* My ancestry is believed to represent mostly English and Scottish (1 continental ancestor mid-1700s) but all lines are not yet proven with genealogical records.

Here are my updated results. Mainly an improvement. The Irish and Germanic scores have reduced to percentages more plausible in comparison to my known family history. Most of the German seems to have moved to Northumbria instead, while the Irish has been split up with Cornwall which fits my known south-west English ancestry. I've got some south Welsh now as well which means all the Celtic nations of Britain and Ireland apart from the Isle of Man are represented in my DNA!

On the downside I've lost a chunk of my Aberdeenshire, which seems to have gone to south-west Scotland instead. Most of my roots are in the north-east of Scotland, so that would seem to be a backwards step by Living DNA compared to my original results.

My updated results are still pretty wacky. They pumped up my Southeast England results and doubled East Anglia. I was hoping they'd sort out the Germanic for mine as I was told it could be hiding in these two categories, but I only scored 2.4% Northwest Germanic. That's (minimum) about 20% less Germanic than it should be/is on other tests. Northern Ireland & Southern Scotland, Ireland, Aberdeenshire, and Northwest Scotland also dropped which doesn't make a lot of sense. They did basically double Northumbria too though which makes more sense than a lot of the other changes. All in all I can't really say it looks any more accurate compared to my paper trail. I suppose the fact that a Germanic category even shows up this time around is a small step in the right direction.
