Living DNA was right in line with the other companies as far as my Native American estimate at 5%. They also estimated around 1.5% West African, which is right on tract with the other companies.
Below I compare my Living DNA results with other companies.
British Isles/ Ireland
|AncestryDNA 60% total for Irish Great Britain|
All of the companies have difficulty detecting Iberian and Eastern European. Again 23andMe is best. Some of my Eastern European ancestors were German. Combining 23andMe's French and German estimates with Eastern European would represent my Austrian grandfather's heritage percentage wise. The Iberian estimate at 23andMe would be more in line with my Nicaraguan grandmother's heritage.
Hopefully with more people testing from more places the Living DNA ethnicity results will become more accurate.
I'm looking forward to getting matches with Living DNA once they begin introducing matching sometime this year. As I understand it they will have a chromosome browser, which will help me collect more segments for my segment map.
You can upload your raw data from other companies to Living DNA for free and receive matches once this service is introduced. Living DNA's "One Family One World" project sounds like a great project to contribute your raw data to.
