Im in New Orleans told I was Cajun. I know my moms background is Ukrainian/Romanian and Norwegian. Is there any way that a simple DNA test could detect Spanish ancestry?
hello..I have been playing with my genealogy thru Myheritage.com and here is my DNA background. Thank you so much for reading my article and taking the time to comment.
I know that they are still developing and working on improving this aspect of the product, and there doesn’t seem to be a community that covers Spain right now. The Iberian Peninsula has turned out to be one of the most mysterious European DNA ethnicities. It seems likely that other DNA testing companies will eventually be able to distinguish sub-regions in the Iberian category, but for now most of us just get the general “Iberian” ethnicity on our ethnicity results. Hi Dee, Researching in Mexico is so hard, I completely understand. In fact, around 23-25% of people native to France (and other Western European countries) show a substantial amount of Iberian DNA.
How far back is my Iberian ancestor likely to be, do you know? On Ancestry DNA, Spanish DNA shows up as “Spain”: Check out this screenshot from Ancestry DNA results. Being an O- blood type and having a 41% IP DNA and some Irish DNA might lend itself to that theory. How did the original Iberian DNA spread to cover a section as big as the one in the image?
People in this region also show North Africa, Great Britain, Italy/Greece, and Ireland. What does this all really mean for my Iberian DNA Results?
Even though it is free to create an Ancestry account and build a tree, you’ll need a subscription to view records and documents, but it’s easy to add information from those documents automatically to your family tree. “There is a plethora of historical evidence to show that many of the people immigrating to the New World had Jewish ancestry,” Perry said. She told me that her grandfather never knew his father. Because of the way that DNA is inherited, if your Spanish ancestor was many generations back in your family tree, there is a good chance that you didn’t inherit very much DNA from them, or any at all. My paternal grandfather came from Cornwall England, my great grandparents on my mom’s side came from Slovakia, and my mom’s father was Irish and German. More importantly, you should know that it is not only people who live in Spain and Portugal that identify genetically with the Iberian Peninsula.
It’s easy to imagine that people used to be more stationary in the past, staying close to their local communities and never moving their families to other areas. If you feel confident about your family tree research, it is more likely that you have many ancestors who were all at least part Iberian.
I’ve done enough genealogy to say we have no obvious Spanish roots.
You could have even inherited very small amounts from more than a few lines of your family tree, making it look like your Iberian DNA is more recent than it actually is. However, it would surely be too long ago to make up 20%, and why would it stand out so separately from the Welsh DNA? I haven’t had good luck with the MyHeritage ethnicity estimates, to be completely honest.
Do you have any ideas about where it came from? Itâs not really a small percentage. There are many, many answers to this question. I hope that this article helped you understand a little bit about the Iberian Peninsula, and how it ended up in your DNA ethnicity estimates. Thence it came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to its home in the west where it still lives today. It’s interesting how it is one of the most important Scottish historical documents AND influenced our own historical documents here in the US. When Portugal conquered Brazil, some of the Jews immigrated to the Netherlands.”. She has made it her mission to help as many people as possible understand their DNA results and learn how to build their family tree. Have you considered the idea that you have several ancestors contributing to your Iberian?

At this point, you will know who your immigrant ancestors are, and possibly where they came from.

Thank you in advance. from 6,500 people across Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru, which they compared to that of 2,300 people all over the world.
My great grandfathers parents migrated to Texas in 1907.
I have traced my family tree back to the early 1800s and everyone is either southern English or Welsh, on both sides. I guess I need a name to enter on these sites to find family on my fathers side. A recently published study surveyed the DNA of Latin Americans and revealed that despite immigration restrictions, many more bnei anousim (Jews forcibly converted during the Inquisitions of Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th Century) arrived in the New World than previously thought.
So many groups inhabited that area and migrated. Most people are very curious about whether they will be able to find out exactly how they inherited their Iberian Peninsula DNA.
So it looks like those French ancestors are the ones with the Iberian Dna.
Below you can see what Iberian looks like on Ancestry DNA, Family Tree DNA, and My Heritage DNA.
For us African-Americans and Afro-Latinos, Iberian ancestry can be VERY dominant, especially for the Y-DNA sides. (Credit: Shavei Israel).
My ancestry.com results show that 6% Iberian Peninsula.
The 20% Iberian seems quite a significant amount – a fifth of me – given I have no known ancestors outside the UK, so it's a real mystery. All my Dad’s side of the family.
They managed to forge documents or bribe their way.”. containerEl: '#fd-form-5f3ee2bd9cf975002baa0cb2'
Maybe you do, maybe you don’t.
Their Jewish ancestry is more pronounced than in people in Spain and Portugal today, indicating that a significant segment of the immigrants that settled the New World were of Jewish descent. Mercedes Brons, author and genealogist, has been doing genealogy both professionally and as an amateur for more than five years. She’s suffering from dementia and can’t be tested. Thanks Lynn G. I’ve been researching all my Texas relatives, it then leads me into Mexico and then I research Marriage, birth and death records but it still keep in me Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. It is no surprise that a large portion of the population descended from Spain have Jewish ancestry. Any thoughts much appreciated! I have been working on my family tree in Ancestry for years and have been able to get very far back but have very few ancestors listed from that area. 22% greek/Italian, 24% IP and 15% Irish. Perry, a descendant of Spanish Jews, founded Reconectar, an organization to help people of Spanish and Portuguese descent with Jewish ancestry. I have narrowed it down to my father’s side, and his mother looks straight Iberian, although we always thought Native. Hi.
My mom told me today she always said I was cherokee too, but that she was just guessing and used that to explain how I look. Your email address will not be published. Thank you for your article.
Do you think that is a question I can pose to Ancestry.com?
So it has to be from my Dad’s side, particularly his mother.
Not sure how I find that out on ancestry.com. Thank you for your time. “It was understandable since it was their way to get away from the center of persecution.
ð. My fathers makeup is 23% Native American. I just know he was Iberian. Like I said, my moms side I knew was 100% and this proved it. It turns out that people in a large geographic area have “Iberian” DNA. Best of luck in your search for the answers – thank you for your comment and for reading my post!
What do you know about where your father’s parents/grandparents/great-grandparents were born, and where the family lore says they are from?
Hi Mercedes, So I was able to access my results on Gedmatch today after downloading my raw DNA data from Ancestry.com and I played around with some of the tools. The reasons behind why Iberian Peninsula DNA spread beyond the mountainous and relatively isolated peninsula is due to politics, trade, and migration – a very typical human story. Basically, there has always been contact, such as war and commerce, between European regions. This is because the Catholic Church was extremely influential in most Latin American countries, as well as France, Spain, and Portugal. I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments! Hi Max, Thank you so much for you nice comment about the article.
If you are interested in finding out how you got your Spanish DNA, or if you know you have Spanish ancestors, you might want to know if you can trace your Spanish ancestry. That said, it is theoretically possible to trace your family back that far, especially if you are lucky and very patient. This is especially true now that we are dealing with a potential pool of hundreds of millions of people for who this is relevant.”.
Their Jewish ancestry is more pronounced than in people in Spain and Portugal today, indicating that a significant segment of the immigrants that settled the New World were of Jewish descent. It’s very common to find Iberian Peninsula DNA in Western Europe, Ireland, and Great Britain, too. In their kingdom there have reigned one hundred and thirteen kings of their own royal stock, the line unbroken by a single foreigner.â I am interested to know if Irish/Scots with Iberian DNA will one day show they were Israelites. I was curious about the Iberian peninsula since my Ancestry DNA results show 18% from that area. Check it out: DNA Tools Page, If you are interested in understanding more about your DNA results, and specifically your ethnicity, you might be interested in this post about understanding your DNA results.Â I also wrote a more in-depth post about how DNA tests can tell your ethnicities, and you can access it here.Â. It is found on BOTH sides of my family, and the Y-DNA line was VERY strong with Portuguese ancestry. Thanks for your nice response. Your Spanish DNA will show up in the category of Spain or the Iberian Peninsula on most DNA tests. Hi Rebecca, Thank you so much for reading my article and for taking the time to leave a comment.
Recently I had my brother and father DNA tested by Ancestry.com and received some surprises. My daughter came up about 25%Iberian the other half Lithuanian which would be right since she’s my daughter.
Took a 23andMe test, and Iberian came up. There was also 15% IP.
