"Aguilar"? I would think you have a lot of Hispanic roots in there. For me, not a drop of indigenous blood. My guess is that the Iberian came from one of the Celtic immigration waves from way back.

There is a lot of Iberian (specifically Basque) DNA in a lot of Irish people, and a lot of Irish DNA in a lot of Basque people. I'm not sure why this is the case (many theories) but there is a definite connection.

Wow, that would likely be it then.

As for me, not nearly as much as one would think:

This is how they see it:




Previously, they simply called Ireland/Scotland/Wales just "Ireland".

Yes, they recently changed the title to better reflect the primary areas it covers, but it has always been primarily found in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. If you click on a category, then click on "continue reading" (under Overview) then finally click "Read more" it will list all the areas (not just primary ones) it covers. They keep making that information harder and harder to find.

Ireland/Scotland/Wales
Primarily located in: Ireland, Wales, Scotland
Also found in: France, England

Great Britain
Primarily located in: England, Scotland, Wales
Also found in: Ireland, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Italy

Thanks for that graph, that's a new one. Mind you, that still covers Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Shropshire, Cheshire, West Midlands, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, parts of Lincolnshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Lancashire, Northumberland, Elmet, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire ( part), and Cumberland... In England.
First, shows Celtic influence, the second Celtic-Anglo influence, I guess. England does have 70% Celt gene

The usual first reaction people have when they take their first test and see something unexpected is to try to explain how that "exotic DNA" got into their family tree. But for those of us who have seen lots of different results and conflicting results for the same individuals tested at different companies there is only one conclusion: these tests do not always accurately differentiate between different European populations. This is a very new science and as such there is a very large margin for error.
I tried the myfamilytree DNA and it says I'm 78% British and 19% southeast European. I think GED match was in agreement with ancestry DNA results. My family history seems to be in line with both ged match and ancestry.

Stupid question here.....So what's the point of having DNA done if it's still basically full of errors and wrong percentages?

Who says the DNA test is wrong?
If anything it's gonna be far more reliable than the stories the grandmothers can/will tell.

Lot's of families have lots of blank spots in their histories and even deliberate lies.
Then there's the time frame for when the several ingredients were added to the soup.
You have to look deeper.
