Default Common Communities

Is there any way we can drill down to what this means for Parent 1 and Parent 2?

My UK groups concentrate on the Portsmouth area and the South West peninsular. I have no huge problem with this, except that I ought to have a sliver of East Anglian ancestry, given that Granny's entire ancestry is there, back to beyond 1750.

But my common communities are:

Southern Midwestern Settlers
South East England
North Carolina Settlers
East of England

and on the other side:

South East England
East of England
Central Southern England
Greater London, England


Devon disappears off the list entirely, so common communities has to mean something very different from ethnicities

Does it tell you any more if you click on "East of England"?

It ought to, didn't it? But it takes me straight back to the ethnicities page. I assume the algorithm is simply recording, for a certain number of generations, where people are saying their ancestors were born.
