I’ve been working on my family tree using Ancestry for several years now and have made some discoveries through them. I recently took the Ancestry DNA test and the results came back very different than what I was expecting given what I know for a fact is true. My mother’s father was 100% British, born in England, as were all of his ancestors. Wouldn’t that alone make me approximately 25% Great Britain? In addition, I know on my father’s side that his father’s father’s mother’s family all came from Scotland. My Ancestry DNA test results were 66% Western European, 25% Irish, 6% Great Britain, 3% trace regions (Scandinavia, Finland). I had expected my percentage from Great Britain to be around 40%. Are these tests ever wrong? Should I take another type of test? Or should I have my mother, father and/or brother take an Autosomal test or another type of test? Thank you for any help you can give me!
