Vinland campaign, sounds interesting…

I'm not seeing how you are getting conclusions regarding your mother from the info you displayed. Given successive waves of Scandinavians settling in Scotland, Ireland and England (roughly North of a line from the Wash to the Wirral) I don't see anything mutually exclusive about being of English heritage and Scandinavia. Likewise Britain took in waves of French Huguenots and other refugees from Western Europe over the years.

That is why these things lack any real scientific value unless supported by other research.

You're asking about my mother's lineage? When I look at the DNA 'hits', there are two distinct groups of people.

One group is my mother's side, and I can almost always fit them into the family tree.

The other group does not fit into my family tree, and shares a common description: "Ethnicity – Regions: Native American, Iberian Peninsula, Italy/Greece" These must match my father's side, especially since my mother's side does not have Native American lineage.

I think DNA ancestory testing is still in its infancy and not particularly accurate. The fact that your DNA does not reveal any East African origins seems to prove this. The original humans were from East Africa and any ancestory test that doesn't detect this for EVERY person is not particularly accurate.

They only claim the "ethnicity regions" results are accurate for the last few millennia.
