The Mega population is a stronger indication of ancestry than the marker panel. You just missed getting the markers for Jewish ancestry- that doesn't mean you don't have any. A sibling might show the markers but you don't.
My recent Megapopulation Test top 10 ancestry catagories were; Melungeon, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean European, JEWISH, Northern European, Iberian, European American, African American, Central European and East European.
For Megapopulations, does the order of the averages mean anything? What is considered high or low? How much do they overlap, particularly as it pertains to Jewish ancestry (markers 1 & 3)?

The megapopulations are listed in order of strength but sometimes the variations are large and sometimes very small. Look at the chart on page 11 of your report and see how the blue lines compare. The megapopulations are a better indication of your ancestry than the markers, so give them more weight.
