I have a question concerning the AO map. Do the circles with the garden trowels represent known ancient remains that match your specific DNA? 3 of the circles for me are in Germany, 1 in Northern Italy near the Swiss border, 1 in Luxembourg, 1 in the Basque region of Spain, 1 in Sweden, 1 in Russia and 2 in Hungary.

Ashkenazi Jewish

99% Ashkenazi Jewish (despite everyone in my known family being Jewish, I was pretty shocked by how homogeneous this was!)
1% trace regions (East Central Africa, South Central Asia, and West Middle East)

23% Metal Age Invader
60% Farmer
15% Hunter-Gatherer

I'm not sure what the circles mean, but mine are in the exact same location.

The result is fairly common given your background. Note that this does not imply that your lines are mainly from the Levant

The ancient Origins pattern is common for Ashkenazim. 'Farmer' points to Neolithic migration to Europe, mainly from Asia Minor. "Metal' could reflect the Caucasus, but more likely reflects Metal migration to Eastern Europe were it is quite common, e.g. Russia and Lithuania.

My Ancient Origins are identical to yours except my Metal Age Invader is 22% not 23%. The other three percentages are the same.

All 16 of my great-great-grandparents were Ashkenazim, but going back further generations there are genetic indications I have admixture from small proportions of Sephardi Jews, Mizrahi Jews, and Poles. I do not rely on the calculators; I also study the ethnic backgrounds of my matches.

It's the locations of ancient remains that have been DNA tested.

This poses a problem for Jews. There is no Levantine sample in Ancient Origins, although the research on which it is based did have such a sample. Consequently no one has results indicating that they have Levantine origins. My Origins does have a Levantine component (western Middle East)

To elaborate, the basic research identified three independent Neolithic 'Farmer' locations, Asia Minor, Natufia (Levant) and Iran. Ancient Origins used only the Asia Minor sample since it had the greatest impact on Europe (except for Jews). Any one of the three samples could be called 'Farmer'. To confuse matters, the Iranian lines had some impact on 'Metal'
