Hi Linda

I have 12.5% Sephardic ancestry, and this may come from more than one source.  It could come from one of my ancestors I have traced to Amsterdam (I have no member on that side of the family who will test), or it could come from one of my Levite ancestors who are said to originate in Spain. I match a number of Sephardi origin families on FTDNA, but they are so far away in time to the common ancestor that any comparison is meaningless. Small segments are notoriously unreliable.
