Thanks, Randy! I just wanted to clarify that I should have been more explicit in my discussion of Speculative mode on the Ancestry Composition. The level of confidence that 23andMe has at that setting is actually relatively high and many genetic genealogists have opined that it is the most accurate admixture prediction available from a commercial company, however and this is a BIG however, ALL admixture predictions should be taken with a big dose of salt and regarded with caution.
