Change at Living DNA

My last blog post about Living DNA showed my autosomal results described as "your DNA mix in the last 4-5 generations." Several bloggers have commented that their results have not matched their expectation in that timeframe.

While the numbers haven't changed they are now described as showing "the areas of the world where you share genetic ancestry in recent times (10 generations)." Ten generations leaves a lot more scope for uncertainty on the far side of known paper-based genealogy.

Change is good. I'd hope the company would be open about providing an explanation of why this change.

Thanks to Wendy Croome for alerting me to the change.
