So I got my results about 2 weeks ago, I tested with AncestryDNA last year, however I found it too confusing, as I came out with a lot of Italy/Greece, & on 23andme I came out more Iberian, with only 2.1% Italian, also 95% of the Caucasoid immigration in Mexico came from Spaniards, Mexico wasn't a immigrant country like the U.S., Canada, Argentina, or Brazil, probably because of the climate, most Europeans who immigrated out of Europe wanted to go to regions where it had a similar climate to Europe, so in total I came out 65.9% Caucasoid, all of the Caucasoid in me, I believe is from the Spaniards, I came out 27.8% Mongoloid (mostly Native American, but 0.3% East Asian), however all of that is from the Indigenous Mexican ancestry, I came out 2.1% Sub-Saharan African, probably from a slave brought to Mexico (my great-grandma was from Veracruz, where there was slave population), & a lot of my family is from Michoacan, where there was a slave population as well, the little bit of Oceanian I got is also from the Indigenous Mexican side.

1.1% Ashkenazi? Do you know about any Sephardic roots, if not personal? I think it's not just a noise.

Your results are similar to many Mexicans even though your NA is slightly lower than the majority. Your SSA is about average. Have you looked at the amounts that your matches have at 23andme? You will see that the majority of people that have 4 grandparents from Mexico will have anywhere between 10% to 50% East Asian & Native American with most of that being Native American and they will also have very high amounts of Iberian. The higher the amount of European the higher the amount of Iberian. Only Spaniards, Portuguese, French Basque, and Latin Americans get 20% or more Iberian. Most Spaniards and Mexicans also get a small amount of Italian like you did.

How much Italy/Greece did you get at Ancestry?
