Re: Using DNA matches to find Jewish ancestors #dna
Many Jews in Spain and Portugal assimilated into the population following the Inquisition and expulsion. I have seen estimates that one-fourth of the Spanish population has Jewish ancestry.
Approximately a century following the expulsion from Spain, the Spanish Armada had its (mis)adventures in Ireland.
Through such dynamics, there no doubt is Jewish DNA to be found amongst today's Irish population.
