Assuming they mean English when they put British? These Americans..... :-X

I'm expecting mine to come back as something like

Mars  10%
Venus 5%

to account for all those ancestors who can't come from anywhere else!  8)

Hoping to get an angle on our mutual (elusive) Grandfather, I asked my male 1st cousin on my Father's side to do one. Our Father's were brothers, their parents from Swansea and Manchester respectively. My cousin's mother was Scottish. His results were:

 Europe West:  57%
 Ireland/Scotland/Wales:  32%
 Scotland /Great Britain: 8%
 Wales & the West Midlands /Low Confidence Regions/ Iberian Peninsula 3%

He took an Ancestry, (Autosomal) one, and so both parent's DNA looked at, but even so, - it's clear as mud to me!

It was through Ancestry. The 1% Scandinavian was a shock because my surname is Grisdale which is from Mungrisdale, Matterdale and this is Viking for pig valley!

Not necessarily from Mungrisdale, there are at least two other Grizedales and Grisedales in the Lake District.

Romilly,

Can I ask the title and artist of the picture of lady with cat in your profile?

From what I've read, the ethnicity 'results' these companies come up with are in no way accurate - just tenuous predictions.

Paul (original poster), if you're still with us - please could you answer my question as to when you sent your test in? I'm getting restless and would like to give myself an ETA for my results!!

Gwen John, Young Woman holding a Black Cat.

It's a beautiful image, and one of a series of very similar paintings that she did.
