Re: Trying to Find Potential Jewish Ancestors #germany

Ancestry gives me 1% Ashkenazi Ethnicity, my Father 10%. My Heritage gives me none and my father 4%. On both sites, we have mutual matches who have 100% Ashkenazi ethnicity. My 2 x great grandfather (my father’s great grandfather) was a Polish Russian Jewish immigrant to England in the 1860s. My father and I both have Eastern European and Germanic Ethnicity showing up.
Jewish people have often had to register Births, Marriages and deaths in Churches and register offices, so it’s not easy to establish their true faith. Not sure if this helps, but wishing you all the best in your search! With best wishes, Nettie Edwards
