    there was a lot of Germans that also went to Brazil ( representing NW europe )
    The first German immigrants to settle in Brazil were 165 families who settled in Ilhéus, Bahia, in 1818. One year later, 200 families settled São Jorge
    Between 1824 and 1972, about 260,000 Germans settled in Brazil,

    Well her maternal grandfather came from L' Aquila (Rocca di Mezzo) and her maternal grandmother came from Calabria (Terranova da Sibari). I would think that she would actually have a lot less North Africa and Nigeria and Ashkenazi Jew Heritage. Both of her maternal grandparents came from small villages not from large cosmopolitan cities. There was more inbreeding than crossbreeding. Here is her Ancestry DNA heritage:

    England & Northwestern Europe 34%
    Southern Italy 28%
    Northern Italy 18%
    Scotland 16%
    Spain 2%
    Aegean Islands 2%

    Now that is a lot more reflective of her actual heritage, don't you think?

    I would not trust these results one bit. This is what happens when you use modern populations, you get wacky interpretations.

    If the reference populations are reverified to have lived in the area for at least 3-4 generations I think they will be OK. If their reference populations are from current populations without taking into account recent migrations then it will be misleading. I think Ancestry chose their reference populations more carefully.
