Which Ancestry setting in My Profile should I choose?

Select the option that best represents how you identify your own ancestry or ethnicity - similar to what you would enter on a census. 

If you think that your ancestors came from two or more regions, please select the "Multiple ancestries" option. If you aren't sure, select your best guess or "I'm not sure." This information is used to personalize your 23andMe experience, improve our services to you, and facilitate research.
