    How often do you see Sicilians score Ashkenazi on 23andMe?

    What do we make of this guy's videos? Has anyone been watching them or looked into his book? Not sure that he brings anything new, and he could stand to be a little more charismatic (sorry if he's one of you guys, haha), but he seems to cover some interesting material.

    I've never seen his stuff, but I'm intrigued!

    I had stumbled upon one of his videos a month or two ago. I will have to watch a few more. Thanks for the link.

    I liked his video but there is really nothing all that 'Italian' looking about him at all, not that he says or implies Ashkenazi Jews are descend wholly from Southern Italian converts. He could tell me his Mizrahi or any Western Jew and I would believe him no problem.

    Some clear errors in his videos, but it's worthwhile that someone is delivering "the good news". Being a Zionist, I thought about making videos such as that, but then realized that instead of raising confidence in our Middle Eastern heritage, I'll just lower the trust in DNA tests.

    A disclosure, I know Joshua from another site, I've even referred him to my blog and this thread, so he might be a reader of this thread, and had been communicating with him when he began making his videos.

    He's a very nice guy, with good intentions and some interesting theories. I haven't gotten to read his book yet, but I have been discussing with him about his theories.

    He's a full Ashkenazi Jew btw, one of us that actually look like our East Mediterranean admixture imply we should look like (rather than yours truly which have been mistaken for an Irish, a Czech, a Pole or a Dutch lol oy ) .

    Every so often, mostly people in western Sicily score it. What is interesting is my grandmother (Portuguese/Cape Verdean) scores about the same amount Ashkenazi and hers, too, survives at the 90% threshold.

    I'm intrigued by Peninsular Arab showing up for the last one. She's from a bunch of small rural towns between Catania and Enna. I have always said and appear to be correct that small inland towns have more Arab era input than the coasts.

    I'll post more results as they update so we can see how they come out.

    Agreed. I hope the next update corrects for this.
