    I agree! The amount of dots that people receive is pretty meaningless in terms of what percentage of their dna might be from a specific country. My wife is 50% Italian and she received 4 dots for Italy. Angela is 100% Italian and you are 100% Belgian yet you each received only 1 dot. If someone were adopted the dots would only signify some ancestry in that country. The amount of ancestry would be meaningless.

    my paternal line have been in italy ( veneto and trentino ) since 1425 from registry and church records I have compiled................so whats your point?........they just use 200 years for some unknown reason ................its like there bar chart it states for me ..italian only from 1870 and before this french, earlier is british, scandinavian etc.
    .
    I believe some regions in italy are excluded from italian like trentino and friuli which is why my % for italian is low and my 5 dots is high ( because the 5 dots represent only veneto for me )

    ^^Your dots represent the fact that for whatever reason you have reasonably close relatives in the database, and so there are matches for longer tracts of your dna. They explain it. There's no mystery.

    The problem is that most consumers won't understand it. You've just proved that.

    agree .....most do not understand data which makes no sense
    it like some people will defend ( at all costs ) the rubbish that 23andme and ancestry produce as fact and these people cannot be convinced otherwise.
    .
    clearly we see 23andme has gone backwards since their version 3 ................they are basically slightly better than ancestry and I foresee in the future their goal in % will only be for north american samples only

    They are rolling out the results slowly for everyone who has taken their reports. Some have it, a vast majority is still waiting to get theirs.
