New Project: Jewish and Italian myOrigins

This project is for FTDNA customers who can document at least all four grandparents with origins either in Italy (including Sardinia and Sicily), or in a Jewish community including the Askenazim, Sephardim, Mizrachim, etc.

The purpose of this project is to connect individuals with Jewish or Italian backgrounds in order to compare myOrigins results. It is designed to systematically gather and analyze myOrigins data in order to determine both similarities and differences in the biogeographical estimates of these communities. Family Finder matching is not one of the priorities of this group.

Due to the current data display limitations for Family Finder and myOrigins project results, only yDNA and mtDNA will be available to members upon log in, but updates of myOrigins results will be periodically posted.

Current FTDNA customers should use the following link to request project membership
http://www.familytreedna.com/my/grou...alianmyOrigins

New FTDNA customers, those who have never ordered from FTDNA, but who a place Family Finder order at the time of requesting project membership (new test or transfer from another company), should use the following link to request project membership http://www.familytreedna.com/group-j...ns&code=X40191

Vinnie, Great Idea, Good luck.

Too bad that MO does not have spreadsheet. Might be possible to compare results with Gedmatch spreadsheets

MO is also limited by not having a geographical location for Ashkenazis----using MO's regions it is probably a combination of Asia Minor, South Europe and Central Europe (European Coastal and Trans Ural) with a few minor areas. Await the MO revision

Individuals with significant Sephardic ancestry would show a geographic pattern (Asia Minor and South Europe?), but they would not be identified as Jewish) Good luck separating Sephardic and non Jewish ancestry

The list of Italians is growing, but I need more Jewish people to do the comparisons. Thanks!

Josh, a belated "thank you" for your well-wishes. I've started an Excel page to keep track of results. I'm up to about 30 members; would like to get at least 50 of each community before posting any results. Also have to decide how to deal with people who are known to be mixed Jewish & Italian.

It'll be a miracle if I get that far!

Yes, keeping the revision in mind, but comparing present results with new ones will add another interesting aspect to the project.

BTW, with the FF revision, my mother now has a few new matches that appear to be completely Jewish, and one new match that appears to be completely Hispanic; still waiting to hear from the other Hispanic match.

Have you contacted any Jewish Projects (Jewish Heritage, Sephardic, etc.)
