9. I tested with Ancestry

they came back with 56% Ireland/Scotland/Wales, 33% Europe West, and "low confidence regions" of 5% Finland/Northwest Russia, 2% Europe South, 1% Scandinavia, 1% European Jewish and less than 1% Middle Eastern. I uploaded my Ancestry results to FTDNA and it came back as 78% British Isles (which fits better with what I know of my ancestry), 10% West & Central Europe, a completely anomalous (as far as I can tell) 2% Middle East (which may be related to my predicted mitochondrial haplotype being R, rare in Europe but common in the Middle East, I'm not sure), and less than 2% each for Finland and Scandinavia. And that's based on the same test; they use different reference samples.

I have mostly Southern US colonial ancestry (Maryland and Virginia), mostly British Isles, mostly pre-1700; 29 of my 32 3rd great-grandparents were born in the US, as were 56 of 64 of my 4th great-grandparents.
