    It's incredibly unlikely you have Ashkenazi ancestry. Likely it is a common generic Middle Eastern ancestry.

    But also possible is shared Middle Eastern Jewish ancestry. (I have some Sephardi ancestry from Aleppo and have a few low-level matches from, and used to have distant relatives in, Beirut.)

    I think this is very presumptuous.. when it could quite easily be greek or italian DNA ancestry they have inherited.
    In fact the poster goes on to reveal he has Greek and Cypriot distant DNA relatives and his grandmother some italian ones.

    I don't have any known Southern European (Italian/Greek) ancestry but recently Ancestry updated my results and it now states that the Southern European is linked to my Middle Eastern Ancestry. I agree that the European Jewish might be ancient ancestry because all of my Middle Eastern matches have this component even though they are Christians.

    the europe south category is kinda confusing imo. heck i've seen siblings gets radical differences in the south europe:middle eastern %'s ratio. i'm guessing those two regions are almost indistinguishable genetically

    I was just surprised by the south Asian, since I donít usually get that on most Gedmatch calculators or 23andMe.

    I am half Greek Cypriot/Sicilian and half Northern European. My results definitely seem off in terms of low ME and Caucus %. Does anyone have any possible ideas about how this could make sense?
