Ancestry DNA Test

My Husband is half German, half Irish. His brother did the Ancestry DNA test. I saw his results so I know he wasn't kidding. These are his results. Remember, half German, half Irish.
75% Great Britain, 11% Irish, 7% East Europe, 4% Finland, 1% West Europe, 1% Iberian Peninsula and 1% Scandinavian.
Really? What happened to Germany? I know he's German, I traced his roots using Family Search.
So either Ancestry made a huge mistake, his parents found him in a cave or the Ancestry DNA test is a bunch of hoo ha.
Yet I still plan on taking it. I'm a Uke 100%, let's see what they say.

The Ancestry DNA Test provides insights on possible geographic regions of origin. It does not definitively state your nationality. Nationality and race are both determined by social and political factors that are independent of genetics.

DNA testing indicates your BIO-GEOGRAPHIC ROOTS. It shows genetic inheritance and is informed by historical studies about movements of people groups throughout the past.

I did my DNA test first with AncestryDNA (before they discontinued it, then restarted it) and familytreedna. 49% East Europe (father) and 45% south central asia (mother), the rest being 1% "traces" so no surprises there. However when using their family finder I have lots of distant matches with people who have Jewish names / origins.

Hello Piotr,

Are you familiar w/following forum? Apparently there are several reasons, sociological and technical, for the kind of readout that you have received.
