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.
