Mine has changed a bit. It was
Scotland 31%
Ireland 29%
England and Northwestern Europe 26%
Wales 7%
Norway 6%

and now
Scotland 43%
England and Northwestern Europe 27%
Ireland 24%
Wales 6%
and I have lost Norway, which I am a bit sad about as I like Norway!

On my research (and I know DNA is not inherited equally) I would say
Scotland 37.5 (assuming the Northern Irish were actually Scottish originally)
England 37.5
Ireland 25
I have yet to find a Welsh connection.

Son's DNA Irish connection has just dropped by 1%

However OH's Irish connection changed from 22% to 18% - still think that's far too high but still.

Mine's not changed a lot, except that I am now 77% English, whereas Mr Nomad is now only 63%, which is really going to irritate him.

Result, I think

With mine and Dad's, our Scottish component has dropped significiantly and he has gained a percentage of Scandanavian and Welsh.

Mum no longer has any Scandanavian but her Irish and Scottish is in proportion to the ancestors.

I have lost all my Scandanavian and Irish components.

Dad - Eng/NW Europe 63%, Swed/Denmark 20%, Scottish 8%, Wales 7%, Norway 2%
Mum - Eng/NW Europe 57%, Ireland 21%, Scotland 19%, Germanic Europe 3%

Me - English/NW Europe 72%, Scottish 16% and Wales 12%

Daughter 1 - Eng/NW Europe 59%, Scotland 29%, Norway 5%, Wales 4%, Ireland 3%
Daughter 2 - Eng/NW Europe 45%, Scotland 33%, Ireland 11%, Norway 8%, Wales 3%

I lost my 3% Swedish aa while ago.

The difference now is that I am 72% English - and the areas, Cornwall, Norfolk, Gloucestershire, London are all in accordance with my research. But I now have 26% Scottish and have not yet discovered any Scots in my tree! The other 2% is Germanic.

I've been getting that message numerous times a day for weeks. If you click again immediately, it works, but it's very annoying.

Yes, I get the same message lots of times - I just refresh the page and hope for the best. I figure its just too many people trying to do the same thing at once. I think they need more servers, maybe thats a future plan.

It's worse than usual today, and I'm getting a new message:
