AncestryDNA 2021 ethnicity estimates

AncestryDNA updated ethnicity estimates became available today. Below are charts showing 1) change in my ethnicity estimates from the 2020 estimates, and 2) comparison of the 2021 estimates between siblings — myself and my two sisters.

Observations relating to my 2020 and 2021 estimates:

  1. Values for Germanic Europe and Ireland are remarkably consistent.
  2. A small Norwegian ethnicity is shown in 2021.
  3. Scotland and Wales appear to have been separated from England & NW Europe.

Observations from the sibling comparison:

  1. Estimates for myself and sister 2 are remarkably consistent, except for the small Norwegian ethnicity in my estimate.
  2. Sister 1 has significant differences from both myself and sister 2, including more England & NW Europe, less Germanic Europe, the only Sweden & Denmark, and more Norway.
