Default Ethnicity updates

Ancestry last updated their ethicity estimates in August 2020. Does anyone know when the next update is due?

Out of curiosity, I have downloaded the previous estimate, so I will have three estimates to compare.

No idea. I wonder whether covid has affected the rate of testing?

If it has slowed down then I would think the updates will take a while to happen.

A message at the top of the page on Ancestry today: Coming soon - AncestryDNA® results will be updated with even more precision this September.

You beat me to it, Kite! As Kit says, Covid may well have slowed them down.

Apparently the new results should be coming out on Friday 17th. And until then, we will not see any new DNA matches because they don't want to give new people one set of ethnicity results and then almost immediately replace them with another set.

That makes sense. I did wonder why nothing had happened over the past few days.

Oh, I should probably mention that the 17th September date is likely to mean when it is 17th Sep in the USA, so about 18th Sep in Australia and New Zealand!

My neighbour is expecting his results any day now. This is his second one. He said his email suggested the 15th September but that’s gone and nothing.
Fingers crossed it’s worked this time.
