I received my DNA results about 2 weeks ago and also was surprised by the Genetic Ethnicity which showed the following:
Central European 74%
British Isles 11%
About 3 years ago I spent a great deal of time analysing my ancestors, origins based on Surnames, Birth Place, and documented descent. ( I did a spread sheet and everything.)
I determined the following:
Scots-Irish 20% (Scottish descent immigrated from Ireland)
I am an extremely intelligent person with over 40 years professional experience in the computer industry, with a strong talent for Mathematics and logic. So I feel very confident of my analysis.
I am NOT questioning the results of the Genetic Ethnicity of the DNA test. I am simply looking for an explanation for the high Central Europe results and the extremely low British Isles results, which are complete opposites of what I expected.
Anyone form Ancestry DNA who can help let me know.
