I’m half French Canadian so the large Normandy score is not surprising. I’m half Wallonia Belgian so I expected to score in that category. Probably was absorbed in the Normandy and Hauts de France regions. The high Irish scores are surprising. Maybe they relate to my relatively high Atlantic scores on Gedmatch and my moms West/Central French ancestors along the Bay of Biscay.

Looks like a really good calculator for people with French ancestry.

I like the beard btw :)

Thanks :) This was the first ethnicity estimate to give me over 50% French. I do like all the various small regions they have. Sure beats huge regions from other companies like “West and Central Europe,” “Europe West,” or “French and German.”

I think the small regions are not exact though considering I received 0% Wallonia and less than 1% Paris. There is a lot of overlap with regions that are close to each other which is to be expected. Overall, though I enjoyed the specificity of the test and would recommend it as an alternative to the major companies.
