The contributing regions for the Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland region shows which regions outside the Great Britain and Ireland region that had the greatest influence on the DNA of the people of the Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland region. This is calculated by comparing the DNA of the people that define the Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland region to only population excluding those of Great Britain and Ireland. In effect, it helps show where the ancestors of the Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland region came from. If you were 100% from the Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland region then these percentages give you an indication of your deeper ancestry up to 10,000 years ago. If you were 50% from this region then it indicates where half your deeper ancestry up to 10,000 years ago came from.
