Hi everyone,
I'm new here, but I've been reading this forum for a few weeks. I have a Social Sciences/History background and Genetic Studies are still a dark continent for me, so please excuse my possible amateurism.
My two parents just received their respective results from Geno 2.0. Next Generation. I found their World Region Categories quite vague. For example, the Western and Central Europe category. Is it some kind of continental Celto-Germanic admixture? Does it include Celto-Italic populations?
Most of our ancestors came from Western France (mostly Brittany, Poitou and Normandy), but in both cases the First Reference Population is Dutch.
Which test would you recommend for more specific autosomal results?
Thanks for your help
