I've actually had mine done. But ir really only confirmed things I already know. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone.
Family search recommendation?
If your grandparents know where they're from that will give you a more accurate idea to be honest.
Go from there I second that idea.
Yes and I also used that to confirm my Croatian Heritage.
Just need to confirm my other heritages.
And look into the documents more.
For example mine gives out a lot of German heritage. But I know my mom ia Czech German. Its weird.
I could potentially be related to an Ustase 😇
Theres also some BALKAN and eastern europea thrown in there but yeah
Does twp have a requirement and how European you are?
I am Croatian, Italian, Anglo (I guess since I have family in Louisiana) and Japanese (only 1/4).
My dad is the most Irish man ive ever seen so I'm almost half Irish. But I think mine was like 93 percent north western European. I think the problem with the dna tests is that people who don't have much of an identity get caught up in the percentages.
Yes. Which is why documents are better.
I just want to know if I have any Jew in me.
My grandparents are German and French.
But..does knowing change your identity?
It changes the truth
Is a jew only a jew if he identifies as one?
DNA results are not always 100 percent accurate.
That's the problem.
Yea but theyre like 97%
I mean I say do whatever you want to do. I did it too. I just worry about people who get it done and they end up being like .01 Ashkenazi and they get upset.
Such small percentages are in the zone of being innacurate anyway
No I'm worried being 10+%
I'm not worried about negligible amounts
Well. I understand what you're saying. If you don't have an indication though that you're Jewish you're probably not.
Indication being like my grandparents history?
I don't know too much about them.
Well I obviously don't have any idea about your family history. Ultimately just do whatever you think is right for you.
Thanks for the input.
I understand that my Croatian family came to The US Pre-WWI than post WWI.
1906 to 1911 to be precise.
Now I need to know what they did.
In terms of occupation. As well as other areas they were involved in.
