How can I switch the Ethnicity Estimate to the new model?

After the initial launch of the Ethnicity Estimate (Beta 0.90), the new and improved Ethnicity Estimate (Beta 0.95) was launched with an enhanced display of the results, newly added ethnicities and a greater accuracy.

In case you had an Ethnicity Estimate according to the older version (Beta 0.90), you can switch to the new model (Beta 0.95) anytime by following these steps:

1. Log into your family site.

2. Hover over the DNA tab and click on Ethnicity Estimate.

If you only manage one DNA kit, you will see directly the corresponding Ethnicity Estimate on the next page.  

If you are managing the DNA of other people, click on the profile of the person whose Ethnicity Estimate you want to view, or click on ‘Select another person’ as shown below:


If there is more than one DNA kit associated to a profile, click on the drop-down menu located within the profile preview and select the kit you wish to display results for.  

3. Just above the interactive Ethnicity map, click on the settings icon, which also displays the corresponding DNA kit number.

4. In the window that opens, click on the drop-down menu to select the Ethnicity Estimate of your choice. Then click ‘Apply’ to save the changes.

Note: The 0.95 Beta is the new Ethnicity Estimate model, but you can switch back to the 0.9 Beta version at anytime.
