The percentages themselves might be reasonably accurate, but what they actually mean is questionable. The labels Ancestry arbitrarily assigned to the various components are misguided and far too specific to be of any real use. And nowhere have they listed their reference populations or adequately explained the methodology for their analysis.

Also, keep in mind these components could signify recent ancestry or much further back than any written records exist.
