Hello, I've recently uploaded my 23andMe raw data to the DNAland site.

Regarding haplogroups, I carry the E-M78 based on my father Felipe's document attached (Mother Patricia's haplogroup also attached).

I've heard that some haplogroups for Sephardic Jews are:
J1, J2, R1a, E-M78, R1b, I:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_E-M215_(Y-DNA)

Would anyone happen to know the steps I can take, using the DNA land resources to learn the Sephardic Judaic percentage I have?

Thanks so much,

Denise.

Hi!
I recommand you to upload your raw data to gedmatch.com then take the Eurogenes Jtest under the "Admixture (heritage)" utility: https://www.gedmatch.com/ap_mix1t_gen.php

Here a thread to learn more about that test:

Hi Denise,

I am Sefardi and you cannot know your Sefardic percentage really. Perhaps if you run diffrent tests in gedmatch, such as eurogenes, you will see for your sample perhaps a suggested 25% mixture of Sefardic/italian/algerian Jew?
