    Default Do I have Jewish ancestry?

    Let me start by explaining that I am not at all close to my father, or his side of the family. All I know about them is that they know nothing about Jewish ancestry and they are from Switzerland, which has one of the highest concentrations of Jews in Europe. They also have an Ashkenazi Jewish and German last name. Because of this I always assumed that I had Jewish ancestry, however I recently got my 23 and me results and was confused, as it showed no Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. Among other things I'm Iberian and eastern European, as well as broadly northwestern European, broadly southern European and just broadly European. I contacted 23 and me and they said that my Ashkenazi Jewish is probably hidden in my 1.7 broadly European. My maternal haplogroup is H8 and I don't expect that to be Jewish since my mothers family has no Jewish last names, but my father does, and my paternal haplogroups are E-M5021 and before that it was E-M215 which I know is a common Jewish haplogroup but I'm wondering if my more recent E-M5021 is Jewish as well. I just want to know if I have any Hebrew ancestry, this is really important to me and any help is extremely appreciated.

    Tyler, you're very unlikely to have any Ashkenazic Jewish autosomal DNA because of your 0 percent Ashkenazi score in 23andme and 23andme usually gets this right. It is NOT typical for it to be hidden in the Broadly European category. It is also not typical to find hidden Ashkenazic ancestry among Swiss Germans, like it is with some Germans from Austria and Germany, especially the former Prussia.

    If you really want to know the origins of your Y-DNA line, you need to test with Family Tree DNA at the 37-marker or better yet 67-marker level and see what kinds of people you match in those screens.
    According to my manual segment match-analysis + calculations, I am genetically 98.34% Ashkenazi Jewish, 1.09% Sephardic Jewish, 0.11% Mizrahi Jewish, and 0.46% Polish Catholic.

    @Tyler
    Oh boy here we go again... you seem so familiar.

    So the answer is 23andme has 0% so it is EXTREMELY unlikely you have Jewish ancestry. DONE (yes I'm shouting!). If you who I think you are .. stop asking the exact same question over and over again!

    Never mind 23andMe, what does GEDmatch say?

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries
