    Thought I might add that those results are from a (now) quite old version of AncestryDNA; regions like “Ireland/Scotland/Wales” and “Iberian Peninsula” “Europe West” etc. are quite a few versions back. This is from a version in which most of my English & German European ancestry was given over to “Scandinavian” which has all but disappeared in the most recent version.
