Can I have a drum roll, please?

23andme finally finished analyzing my DNA sample (the results have come in bit by bit), and gave me the ethnic/nationality composition.  This is the first one that makes sense to me:

Northern European
French and German 30.0%
British and Irish 13.1%
Scandinavian  11.1%
Finnish <0.1%
Nonspecific Northern European 38.0%

Eastern European 3.5%
Southern European
Balkan 0.4%
Nonspecific Southern European 0.1%

Nonspecific European  3.7%

This seems more reasonable, doesn't it, than the first one that said I was 38% British Isles or whatever?  I think they lump French and German together because the border has been fluid, and our Hug line is right on the border of France.  I don't know why there's such a large chunk of "Nonspecific Northern European," but I'll try to find out what's up with that.  It will be interesting to see how Chris's analysis matches up to this.
