How long does it take to get the results?

I really don’t understand the Great Britain distinction. It was a place made up of Celts, Romans, Angles/Saxons, and Scandinavians. How can it be made up as one place as a source of DNA? The range I had for the region was from 0 to 58% and it gave me 26%. However, some of it matches with some of my paper lineage. The Italian/Greek percentage was a surprise. Have no paper lineage there, however the historical aspects of the Roman Empire’s location suggests that their genes could have still been in the area. Does the Great Britain region include the Roman genetic contribution? Any thoughts?

For the most part of the year the results came up as 91% Scandinavian and 9% Persian/Turkish/Caucasus. Then more recently, It’s now showing as 17% Scandinavian and 18% Western European and 55% Irish with <1% South Asian. Is the newer mix reflecting a newer part of the migration patterns in my DNA? By that I mean were the first results correct if you go REALLY far back? My guess was that if my DNA were originally 91% Scandinavian, then LATER, as the Vikings traveled to Ireland and other parts of the UK and they'd mix with those regions, then I'd show up as 55% Irish. I understand you're trying to make these results more accurate, but is there a way to consider the timeline of migrations as these results get modified? The biggest part of my question that I'd REALLY love to know is why I went from 91% Scandinavian to 17% Scandinavian. Were the first results NOT correct at all or does it mean if you go farther back in their migration, I'd show up as 91% Scandinavian (before they mixed with the Irish)? Sorry if you've answered this elsewhere, but I couldn't find an answer. Thanks for your help!

different from the latest ones I have received? One outstanding difference is that in the May report I have 11% Finnish/Volga-Ural and the latest report says they tested Finland and found 0% Which one of
these reports am I to believe?

I am certain of my Irish (O’) Conley ancestry on my mother’s side – she just has no clue who my father was…

The 39% was a surprise to me since my mother’s family is from Norway. I know relatives on both gparents sides and there is no known immigration to Norway in the last 500 years.
I trust as the sample sizes get larger (only 279 Scandinavians), data will change.
Any comments?

Whats up, is it not enough that we paid for the test and a monthly fee. Get the tracker removed!

Not a happy camper, Please explain yourself Ancestry!

Any ideas?
