Classification: Query
the percentages shown in the Ethnicity portion of your DNA results and the DNA matches/Tree info are two different things.

The Ethnicity report reflects lineage from many many 100's to 1000's of years ago. Before our current written records.

If you were of 100% Scandinavian decent based on your family tree and you had some percentage of West African in your results maybe it would be puzzling but with all the ancestry from Spain, the Canarys, etc I'm not surprised at all by your results.
