Perhaps the biggest feature of their test though, is the ability to predict locations more specifically. The UK has been split up into twenty one regions, as well as some more precise areas in other countries, e.g. North and South Italy.
I have sent off samples for this test and am expecting my results in about ten weeks times. I will be really interested to see just how accurate the British regions are, as I have several widely spread clusters. I will also be interested to see how much of my Irish ancestry will fall into the 'South West Scotland/Northern Ireland region and how much into the 'Irish' region.
Yet another interesting feature is the ability to view your ethnicity throughout different periods of history. I have always wondered how long one has to live in a country before they classify as that nationality. I was surprised by how Irish and Scandinavian I appeared in Ancestry and FTDNA DNA tests, as many of my ancestors from Ireland moved over in the 16th and 17th centuries. I also have no record of any Scandinavian in my pedigree so will be intrigued as to how the percentage of Scandinavian changes over time periods.
Check back in about ten weeks for my verdict on the test.
