AncestryDNA and 23andMe Updates For Me – November 18, 2019

I mentioned last month – Ancestry® Expands Reference Panel to Deliver More Precise Results and New Regions – October 21, 2019 about Ancestry.com rolling out new updates on ethnicity results. I noticed an e-mail today from Ancestry showing my ethnicity had been updated.

I also ran the last 23andMe update (October 3, 2019) and compared it to the earlier updates, but for brevity only showed the April 2019 comparison.

It took a bit to find, but here are my old results – Ignore Ethnic Results Below the Continental Level.
