Re: DNA differences between Jewish subpopulations #dna

Debbie,

All of you are probably Ashkenazi Jews and your DNA analysis did
not change. It is FTDNA that changed its designations.

According to FTDNA:
One of my sisters is 100.00% Middle East (Jewish)
Another sister is 99.37% Middle East (Jewish) +/- 0.77%
I am 85.21% Middle East (Jewish), 14.79% Europe
We all have the same father and mother. I just ended up with a
little more distinctly non-Jewish European genes.

23andme told me that I am 94.8% Ashkenazi. When I delved for its
world placement they told me 99.9% European and .1% unassigned.

The difference between FTDNA's and 23andme's formulations is
ideological.

Anne Wojcicki places our origins in Europe, while Max and Bennet
affirm our west Asian roots.

Can anyone refer me to a detailed article about the DNA difference
between Ashkenazi, Shaphardic, and Mizrim Jewdisim? My mothers
autosomal test first showed 100% Ashkenazi, and was then changed to
100% Middle Eastern Jewish. My fathers first cousin's autosomal test
came back 100% Middle Eastern Jewish.
