True for me too. My mother's paternal grandparents came from the Marche region (married in Civitannova), and Ancestry shows me 62% British (ok, my dad's family on both sides is from Ireland),
22% Central European,
14% Eastern European,
2% Uncertain.

I've also tested at Nat'l Geographic (Geno 2), and they say I'm 42% Mediterranean, 39% British Isles, 17% SW Asian. The present-day populations who have tested in their DB that are closest to me are the UK, and Tuscany.

I suspect the discrepancy is due to the sample size. NatGeo has over 520,000 people tested. I doubt Ancestry has that many.
