Herbert, thank you for your answer! If I understand yourtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
interpretation of my dnaresults it is possible, but not sure, that I
have some connection to jewish ancestors, provided that there are no
other jewish relatives in my familyhistory,
As there are no other criteria, than my dnaresults, to prove an
eventual jewish background I have been recommended to try a more
reliable dna test, AncestryDNA, What is your view on that? Perhaps all
this kind of DNAtest are very imprecise!

Hello I am looking for an eventual jewish background. My grandmothers father (Ignatz Almuslin b 1829) emmigrated from the town Neusatz, Hungary, now Novi Sad, Serbia He emiigrated to Seden in the middle of the 1900 century. There have been a dispute wether he is my grandmothers father or not. To know more about this I have taken a dnatest (MyHeritage) which shows the following: 59% scandianvian, 20% east easteurope, 8% ashkenazi-jude, 7% balt, 6% others like 4% iberian. Ignatz was of jewish and probably of sephardic origin.
My grandmothers mother have only swedish relatives far back. My grandfather, that is my fathers father, comes from the north of Germany. His ancestors is located in the area of Stralsund with no known connection to jewish relatives. My mothers relatives are all swedish far back in time.
I am now interested to know for an eventual jewish background. What does the result from the dnatest tell me in connection to that question? To know more perhaps an Ytest is more suitable?
