I received an e mail from Living DNA saying “Lucky You… You Have Irish DNA!” and that you can share this badge on Facebook.
I thought it was cute and I hadn’t logged into Living DNA in a while, so I wanted to see if they narrowed down where my Irish DNA was from. Currently they have my Ethnicity Estimate as:
The Living DNA map does not indicate that my DNA is from Northern Ireland. I wonder if that is because I don’t have ancestors from there or that it is not one of the regions that they have delved into.
My current Ancestry DNA Ethnicity Estimate is:
Interesting that Ancestry shows that Northern Ireland (specifically Louth & Monaghan) as a region so maybe my guess that Living DNA hasn’t yet tested in that region is accurate.
It didn’t divide to show how much of the 37% was divided into Ulster, so I clicked on it hoping would show a percentage:
It didn’t give a breakdown of the percentage, but gave a timeline and history of the area.
The last place that I have tested at is MyHeritage. Their Ethnicity Estimate doesn’t really show me any Irish DNA:
It’ll be interesting to watch updates as they improve the technology!
