I have Jewish 1 and Jewish 3 markers, I noticed I have 2 Portuguese-Northern, 2 Iberian Peninsula-Basque, Spanish-Extremadura, Spanish-Majorcan, Spanish-Canary Islands, under my world population matches, are any of these a Sephardi-Jewish match?

That seems likely using an educated guess only as these are areas where Sephardic Jews live/d; however, this is not a direct Sephardic Jewish match to a specific population in our database. Spanish- Majorcan Jews is a possible direct match to a specific Sephardic Jewish population as is the green diamond in Israel.

Hope this helps,

In my world population matches, Jewish (n=124) is # 28, what population does this represent as your database says you have 3 distinct Jewish populations being Israeli Jews, Hungarian Ashkenazim and Chuetas

Thank you,
Linda

Dear Linda,

Thank you for asking about the mix of Jewish individuals cited in the population referenced.

I found that the Jewish population data represent DNA samples from 124 Jewish individuals in the
collection of The National Laboratory for the Genetics of Israeli Populations, at Tel-Aviv
University. Samples were obtained by the Genetics Laboratory of the Biology Dept. at Spain’s
University of the Balearic Islands (Laboratori de Genetica, Dept. de Biologia, Universitat de les
Illes Balears), and research was supported by a grant from Spain’s General Direction of Higher
Education (Direcciòn General de Enseñanza Superior). One researcher also received a
fellowship from Spain’s Ministry of Education and Culture (Ministerio de Educaciòn y Cultura).

The population was subdivided into four groups: 25 Ashkenazi; Sephardic with 35 Turks; North African with 13 Moroccans, 13 Libyans, 13 Tunisians; Oriental with 12 Iranians (Persians) and 13 Iraqis.

Hope this helps,

Jakay
