My results have just been published by LivingDNA, the following is a summary of their findings.

I have analysed the birth locations of my ancestors to 3xGreat Grandparent and plotted them on a map of North Yorkshire. Four distinct lines are shown on the map.

Paternal male line ancestors are grouped together on the western edge of the North York Moors whereas the Paternal female line are grouped along the Northern part of the North York Moors.

The Maternal male line ancestors are grouped in the Bilsdale area of the North York Moors whereas the Maternal female line are on the southern edge of the North York Moors around Pickering.
