Why did you have your DNA tested?
What do you mean by 'Israel' - do you mean Israeli's?
Everyone is doing it these days...so I decided to also.
okay - I see - were you given any more information than just 1:138?
or just the 0.7%?
Were you trying to match with a certain population in the world?
Well what this means that your DNA is similar to about 1% of the Israel population.
because 0.7% is about 1%
That mean that I really do not have jewish blood in me?
Now all this means that 1% of your DNA is associated with Israelis, but you might also find that you might have other nationalities in your ethic background such as German, English, Italian or others
Yes those were also listed, but at .01%
Well you have only about 1% Jewish blood - and that is probably very similar to many people in the US that have some sort of ties to Israel
sorry I mean 0.1%
okay - 0.1% means 1 in 1000 - so that is a low percentage
I have 0.7% with 1 match in Israel out of 138 people in the Family Tree DNA database under the first 1-25 Markers and all other countries are at 0.1%...Please state again so I can understand a little more-thanks.
Well you have about 1% of your DNA associated with other Israels,
and the 0.1% means that you have a 1 in 1000 chance of having DNA associated with other backgrounds such as German, Austrian, Italian, English, etc.
