I'm 50% Lebanese, 25% Iraqi Christian/Chaldean and 25% North Italian

In all results of admixture i fit in Ashkenazy population, now i have the Mcdonald results and i want help to understand how population i fit better and what place i fit better.165616581657

I think we've said before that this reflects on the Ashkenazi founding population rather than on you (i.e. Ashkenazim are primarily a northern Levantine/West Asian population with a detectable minority component of European admixture).

I' m not aware of any ancient samples from Northern Levantine/West Asia. To come to any conclusion of your family history based on the available historical [ancient samples] using only modern day samples is premature IMO. Unless some of the members can provide references to ancient samples; I would try and do more research. For example how can you tell if your paternal ancestors joined the Nestorian Church ? Were they Kurdish or were they Jewish or other ? Wiki predates Nestorian church Chaldean.



The Church of the East (Syriac: ܥܕܬܐ ܕܡܕܢܚܐ ʿĒ(d)tāʾ d-Maḏn(ə)ḥāʾ), also known as the Nestorian Church,[note 1] is a Christian church, part of the Syriac tradition of Eastern Christianity. T

In the 19th century, several Christian villages existed in Kurdistan, whose inhabitants spoke only Kurdish, and there were Muslim Kurdish tribes that recalled they were once Christians. Kurds who converted to Christianity usually turned to the Nestorian Church.[9] In 1884, researchers of the Royal Geographical Society reported about a Kurdish tribe in Sivas which retained certain Christian observances and sometimes identified as Christian.[10] It is also possible that many Kurdish Christians have been linguistically and hence ethnically absorbed by Semitic-speaking Christians of Mesopotamia, especially after Islamic expansions in Middle East.[11]

For example it is possible that R1b members from Nestorian Church might be related to R1b in Kurds.

We really do not have a good collection of ancient dna samples to come to any conclusions, IMO

Most likely fit is 77.6% (+- 0.0%) Europe (all Southern Europe)
and 22.4% (+- 0.0%) Mideast (all Iran)

The following are possible population sets and their fractions,
most likely at the top
Sicily= 0.776 Iranian= 0.224

This is MOST unusual! I checked and as far as I can tell, this
really IS 1% each Native American and sub-Saharan African.
The American looks Caribbean or northern S. America.

a more accurate custom fit gives
