Does MyHeritage update your ethnicity results when NEW ethnicities/regions are added???

If you had this MyHeritage DNA kit done 8 months ago, and they only gave you as your reults:

British and Irish 37.7%

Iberian 16.1%

Italian 46.2%

Do they update your results as NEW ethnicities/Regions are added or when they are broken down more?  As you state NOW your genetic models are based on 42 ethnic groups around the world.

British and Irish isn't a category anymore, and English is seperated by itself and Irish is now Irish/Scottish/Welsh.  Hope someone can help with this question.  Thank You!!

I don't know why they wouldn't answer your question here. It states elsewhere on their site that as new data is gathered worldwide, they will continue to update their systems over time. Your ethnicity estimate should automatically update as the information becomes more precise. In fact I believe there was a recent update earlier this year 2018 I believe....

Hi Daniel,

Please send any problem & questions around DNA directly to the support (support@myheritage.com).

In the title of the email place somewhere the word DNA, and this will forward quickly to the DNA support team.

Take a look on the following Post from Yehudah (MyHeritage):
