So I got my 23andMe results 2 months ago, & I know I have Spanish ancestry (because of my last names, history, & DNA), as well as Purepecha ancestry (because of where my family came from), but I heard from my dad there could some Sephardi Jewish ancestry, I might have some Amerindian ancestry from Veracruz (Totonac, or some other tribe), so I wondered based on my DNA results what could my actual ancestry be based from the results.

Could my Italian & Sardinian be from the Spanish (from Roman times), or from the Sephardi Jews, or from actual Italian ancestry (there were Italians that settled in Michoacan & established towns like Nueva Italia), or could It be from somewhere else.

Could my North African be from the Moors (via Spain), or from the Sephardi Jews, or from some Canarian ancestry (there were some Canarians in Mexico), or somewhere else.

Could the Akeznazi Jewish be from the Spanish, or from the Sephardi Jews, or somewhere else.

the Northwest European is probably from the Spanish.

The East Asian is probably from the Native American (from remants of East Asian settlement)

The Oceanian is also probably from the Native American (from remants of Polynesian settlement).

Could the West African be from a slave ancestor, or from the Moors.

Could the Central/South African be from the slaves, or the Moors.

I just came across your Ancestry DNA results (they are a little similar to mine in regions) and just sent in my 23 and me kit last week. My guess it will look similar to yours? I'm curious to see what answers you find to your thread, so I am tuning in!

(For reference, my ancestry dna results are attached. As an fyi - I know with fair certainty that I have Sephardic ancestry.)

Most of the Southern European admixture is bound to be Spanish, in turn Ashkenazim are by and large near-identical to Sephardim. I myself share several IBD segments with Mexicans, not because Mexico was invaded by Ashkenazi Jews but rather because many Sephardim (mainly Anusim) settled in Mexico.
