Kudos to MyHeritage in their upgrade Ethnicity Estimate. Now it’s including early (Colonial) American English/British/German immigrant genetic groups mapped properly. Having gone back to that time in genealogy, I know this aspect of my genetic lineage is accurate as it lines up perfectly. The final frame is the range in which certain parts of my genetic ancestry migrated around for centuries, New Haven, CT area down around to Elizabeth, NJ area, so consistently that even I was born in this area the planet, EVEN THOUGH there wasn’t any family homes or anything like that passed down. Just mulling about in a similar zone for almost 500 years.

I was really surprised. Usually places just show “the old country” which is great but it’s nice to show the occupation areas too 
MyHeritage lets you import from other places too. I got my 23andme in there. I think they just modified this the other day. It just said “we’ve improved it” but didn’t say how. I wonder if they cross referenced DNA with people’s genealogies to get some of this information? or from grave-digging? Can’t imagine. But it’s cool to see.
