I can't explain what 10% Armenian and 7% Italian for me.I have 10-15 real Jewish matches than Armenians,Italians and Greeks.Maybe that scores indicate little Jewish origin.I don't know.
I just had to read about Lezgin people. It wouldn't suprise me if you are a bit mixed!

My Iranian grandfather's race on ship manifest

When my grandfather (born in Iran) came here in 1947 his race is listed as Armenian, which does not seem right, his father born Turkmenistan and his mother an Azeri from Baku. Here is his son (my father) Eurogenes K36 results. My father's mother was mixed European (Italian/Polish/French)

Population

Armenian 5.29
Central_Euro 3.35
East_Central_Euro 4.86
East_Med 16.65
Eastern_Euro 5.81
Fennoscandian 0.34
French 3.51
Iberian 2.15
Italian 14.66
Near_Eastern 10.95
North_Atlantic 3.16
North_Caucasian 12.81
North_Sea 0.63
Siberian 0.88
South_Central_Asian 9.21
Volga-Ural 0.28
West_Caucasian 5.40

I've been having productive conversations with BoSox in private and just want to give a quick update that his match list shows no Armenian matches, so in conjunction with his ultra-low Armenian affinity score in Eurogenes K36 and his 0% Asia Minor score in MyOrigins 2.0, I am sure his grandfather wasn't an ethnic Armenian.

But BoSox's Sicilian, Norman French, and Mexican roots are well represented by people in his GEDmatch match list, so 3/4 of his genetic ancestry is what he expected it to be. The other 1/4 is still a mystery but the genetic indications are that the mystery grandfather was neither South Caucasian nor Balkan nor Eastern European.

I don't think 5% really means anything, My paternal grandfather Abolfazl's ancestry past his parents is a mystery which I am struggling to uncover with very little results.

I am attaching a picture of him just before he left Iran for the US in 1947. He was an accomplished diver.

Hes looking very stoic there my friend. I hope you figure out the past. Sorry. I am in the same situation.
