Default Re: Just got results from a DNA test, got a big surprise

If you can get onto the Mormon data base they have family trees for many people. My brother traced my dad's side of the family all the way back to 1385.

My mom's side nobody is sure of but family gossip says my great grandfather illegally crossed to NY state from Canada.

Well now it turns out that my mom's mother was likely adopted. Nobody seems to have any real information but it appears likely that she was adopted and was likely 100% Jewish (or as close to 100% as is possible) but was raised as a Polish-Catholic.

What we also have learned is that while it has long been believed that my mom's side of the family was roughly 80% Polish/20% German (give or take) we were able to get results from one of my surviving aunts and it shows that she has only 29% Eastern European DNA and only 3% Western European DNA. Even if you factor out her mother's DNA because she was adopted into the family, the % of Eastern European is very low compared to family folklore.

Lots of arguments among the family (cousins) since my first DNA test.

They totally deny any Jewish ancestry.

A few more tests by cousins later and BOOM they are all roughly 1/4 Jewish

But there are still whole families that deny any Jewish connection.

We have confirmed grandpa's ancestry, through birth records, to the early 1800's and every trace is Polish. We have confirmed that Grandma was ADOPTED.

Today I received a revised "estimate" of my DNA heritage.

The European Jewish component went up 4%. The middle east Jewish component was eliminate.

So I am:
  • 61% Polish/Slovak/Hungarian/Romanian/Russian
  • 29% Jewish of European origins
  • 10% Baltic states (which overlaps northern Poland)


Posted this update on our family Facebook group page. Waiting for to begin

So uhh why does anyone care about the Jewish part? Is that supposed to be bad or something? Someone could have been from a Jewish family but no longer a practicing Jew?

One of my best friends just discovered he has a daughter he never knew about. Itís a cool story but detailed. Long story short, his niece had a test done and it resulted in him being notified of having a daughter.

Pardon my ignorance, but how does being Jewish get embedded in your DNA? It's a religion. Does anyone's DNA test come back with a percentage of Christian or some other religion?

I dunno

It seems like there is one wing of the family that has issues with it. Makes no sense to me. They are adamant that they are Polish-Catholic. I suggest that they are Polish/Jews who happen to be Catholic. They don't like that. Like I said, I don't understand their issues

It is both a race and a religion.

The Jewish race has its own DNA markers just like there are markers for Egyptian which are different than Arab (Iraq/Saudi region) DNA markers which are different from Persian (Iran) DNA markers.

You can be Jewish of race and any religion you wish to be.

Just like you can be Arab/Persian/African by race and Jewish by religion.

Well surprise surprise, a member of the family that is in the wing that objects to the thought that they may be Jewish had a DNA test and she sent me her test.

So now those who object to the thought that "Grandma is Jewish" have a sister who is Jewish!

I posted this on Facebook too. But this is one of the daughters of my mom's oldest sister. So a first cousin to me. My mom was on the younger side of the 12 children.

It is alleged that a couple of millenia back a Jew might have had something to do with the death of another Jew who may (or may not) have lived in the area now known as modern Israel. This seems to be of some importance to certain religious sects.

Yup I agree

It's the little surprises that make life interesting.
