Re: Percentages of ancestry - my Ashkenazi father seems to be partly of Italian/Greek descent? #dna
Following the Roman conquest of Jerusalem and the dispersion, many Jews were taken to Italy. Jewish slave labor built the Coleseum and other Roman tourist trap monuments.
So it is not so much a matter of Jews having Italian DNA as it is Italians having Jewish DNA.
