Ethnicity estimates

LC FTDNA originsI now have autosomal DNA results from two companies and am eagerly awaiting the results of a third test. The discrepancy in ethnicity/origins results confirms that it is early days for this type of analysis. As a Brit, living in Norway, who had a granny who was convinced she came from Viking stock I had to smile at the difference between FTDNA estimates of 24% Scandinavian and the AncestryDNA estimate of 2% Scandinavian. If you would like to see more details take a look at Using DNA to confirm paper trail findings. I am now waiting rather impatiently for the third set of results from 23andme. Will they be half way between the other two or way out in another direction? Fascinating. LC ethnicity AncestryDNA
