AncestryDNA profile

Two significant differences between this and the 23andme profile are that non-European is defined as “trace” levels in the new profile, but the Iberian percentage rises to 6 from 0, and European Jewish appears for the first time at 2%. Spanish Jews have occupied a place in Melungeon literature, most recently in Lisa Alther’s novel Washed in the Blood, so I am intrigued that these two elements appear simultaneously in my results.
