I would say you are of Mexican Ancestry. The only thing a bit off is the North African at 2%, but everything else aligns with people of Mexican Ancestry of mostly Criollo roots.

Very insightful! And that matches most of what I know (2nd generation euro-mexican father and mestizo mother). I was hoping to narrow down more of what my dad's side was.

As to that 2% North African, it gets classified as Arab/Egyptian over on DNA.Land [Includes: Egyptian in (2 sites) Egypt; Palestinian, BedouinA and BedouinB in (Central, Negev and 1 other site) Israel; Jordanian in Jordan; Saudi in Saudi Arabia; Syrian in Syrian and Yemen and Yemenite Jew in Yemen]

I get a little North African here and there too. I think it's from my Iberian, which would make total sense.
