Ancient migrations

Postby jakayj » Sat Mar 16, 2019 8:54 pm

This exciting field emerging of ancient genetics studies has seen several recent scientific studies published, focusing on the 8,000-year history of Iberian populations and their DNA shifts. DNA Consultants is the first company to offer genetic testing to prehistoric populations and their descendants for clients. Further information is available on our website: https://dnaconsultants.com/ . Among the reports are the following:

Jakay, thanks for these interesting articles.

My four Primeval DNA tests showed relatively low percentages compared to typical amounts:
ANCIENT BRITONS IN ROMAN BRITAIN 3.60% (Virgil 4.96%)
STONE AGE EUROPEANS 2.50% (GORYA 4.93%)
VIKINGS IN MEDIEVAL ICELAND 4.27% (OM 5.16%)
ANCIENT ISRAELITES 2.56% (GAL 3.83%)

I showed 38 out of 50 Hispanic World Population Matches (Fingerprint Plus DNA test) and my mother showed 22 out of 50 Iberian-Hispanic WPM. It seems that most of my ancient Hispanic ancestors were Sephardic Jews. I had one check each for Jewish I and Jewish II. I had two checks for Jewish III.

My question - Are my ANCIENT ISRAELITES Primeval DNA test results definitive as to my Jewish DNA (Sephardic and Ashkenazi), or might there be more sources of Jewish DNA to be found in ancient skeletons of Iberia?

Yes, Shari,

Dr. Yates says there are multiple origins for medieval and modern-day Jews, including North Africa and Spain (Sephardim).

Let us know here what you discover in your explorations.
