    It's almost as bad as Eurogenes "J" test.
    If you're Southern European and want to know if you have Ashkenazi ancestry to any meaningful degree, go to 23andme. If you have it, the genes will show up.
    Angela, I've never bought them either, and they're there.
    When I uploaded my uncle's data, his results were blocked, but for some reason they were unblocked after a while.
    Matching tool is free, IIRC.

    MH considers the Askenazi an European ethnicity and the Sefardi an ethnic group from North Africa. MH addresses the Askenazi in the following way.

    Then they changed it I guess. Regardless, the Ashkenazim have no IBD sharing with either Spaniards or Italians.

    I don't see how a low confidence level result would be of much value or interest, but here is mine:



    Romania probably has some connection with Bronze Age Hungarian DNA, and Louisiana & Mississippi are from Italian diaspora that went there in the 1800s. I don't have any family that went there, the only group which makes sense is the Bari one.

    Sicily and Sardinia? That's a pretty massive range.

    Romanians have strong Balkan and Roman influences, also strong Slavic ones and minor, but significant, more recent ones from various steppe people, Hungarians, Germans, Serbs and Bulgarians among others. Its in any case about more recent common ancestry than the Bronze Age with this feature, so admixture within historical times. The question is just in which direction it was going, from Romania or to Romania. Could be the general Vlach/Balkan cluster via Albanian ancestry?

    I get French in Northern America on low confidence because some German-French relatives of ancestors moved to these communities.

    ^^I don't understand how that makes much sense. They are a few percent Berber. The rest of their ancestry is like that of Ashkenazi Jews. That's just a geographical description of where they lived, not their "origin".

    Perhaps in all this period they have already become Maghrebi Jews, otherwise they would have had to exercise a strong inbreeding and would have presented multiple diseases like the Jews of Mallorca. Perhaps the Muslim power has been permissive in the transit of Berber marriages to Sephardic Jews.

    Hi Angela. Happy New Year

    MH's proposal is to establish clusters with modern populations. The Sephardim arrived in Iberia from North Africa and when they were expelled in the late 1400s, they returned mostly there. The Ashkenazins had a strong presence in Central and Eastern Europe until the Holocaust. Before the war, the Ashkenazi corresponded to more than 10,000,000 people. This is more than the current population of Portugal. Israel is a state that emerged in 1945. IMO, it makes no sense to associate the Jews Asquenaze and Sephardi with such a new state, but with their last known origins, which is Central Europe and North Africa, respectively. The Sefardi community in Iberia is numerically insignificant today and many of those who are there today are Sephardic cultural people from Latim America who used complicated bureaucratic intricacies to receive Portuguese or Spanish citizenship and settle in those countries. Concretely, these individuals are neither. They are not ethnic Iberians, nor are they ethnic Jews. The attribution of nationality does not mean attribution of ethnicity and in this sense it is not worthwhile that they participate in statistics or references of ethnicity, mainly in Portugal and Spain, under the risk of distorting the statistical data of the modern Jewish population.

    Cheers.

    I think it may be far fetched that this is an indication, but some speculate that the Apuli may have originated in Dacia.

    The Apuli or Biefi were a Dacian tribe centered at the Dacian town Apulon (Latin Apulum) near what is now Alba Iulia in Transylvania, Romania.


    Apuli has clear resemblance to Apulia, the ancient southeastern Italy region, which is believed to have been settled by Illyrian tribes (also named Apuli or Iapyges).


    Linguists use it as an example for the similarities between Illyrian and Dacian language.[1]

    Though perhaps not too far fetched. I don't know of any Apuli samples, but I am fairly close to the Iron Age Bulgarian sample:

    We have their autosomal analysis, Carlos.




    You'll find a lot of nonsense on the net from the pre-genetic analysis days, but we now know a lot more.

    "The study carried out by Behar et al. that analysed small samples of North African Jews (Libya (83); Morocco (149); Tunisia (37)) indicates that Jews from North Africa lack typically North African Hg M1 and U6 mtDNAs.[13] Hence, according to the authors, the lack of U6 and M1 haplogroups among the North Africans renders the possibility of significant admixture, as between the local Arab and Berber populations with Jews, unlikely. The genetic evidence shows them to be distinct from Berber populations, but more similar to Ashkenazi Jewish populations.[13]"

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berber_Jews


    Most of their ancestry is from the expelled Jews of Spain.

    "
    Analysis of mitochondrial DNA of the Jewish populations of North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia, Libya) was the subject of further detailed study in 2008 by Doron Behar et al.[40] The analysis concludes that Jews from this region do not share the haplogroups of the mitochondrial DNA haplogroups (M1 and U6) that are typical of the North African Berber and Arab populations. Similarly, while the frequency of haplogroups L, associated with sub-Saharan Africa, are present in approximately 20–25% at the Berber populations studied, these haplogroups are only present in 1.3%, 2.7% and 3.6% respectively of Jews from Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.[40]Behar et al. conclude that it is unlikely that North African Jews have significant Arab, or Berber admixture, "consistent with social restrictions imposed by religious restrictions," or endogamy. This study also found genetic similarities between the Ashkenazi and North African Jews of European mitochondrial DNA pools, but differences between both of these of the diaspora and Jews from the Middle East.[40]

    Since 1990, several genetic studies of Jewish populations have been conducted

    https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jud%C3%ADos_bereberes

    We see other studies from 2008, 2013 and until 2021 it has rained.


    I understand that it may be hard to let go of what was taken for granted based on studies from 10 or 20 years ago or maybe more, but these days we are seeing how other genetic studies for other subjects from 10, 20 years ago are turning into wet paper.
