  • Interpreting GedMatch results

    Hello,

    I want a little help to understand my Gedmatch results.
    I'd like to know if anybody could help me understand what do Gedmatch categories correspond to.

    My mother is of Arab Algerian descent (not culturally Berber, not European Pied-Noirs, not Jewish but "Arabised" Algerian), the Southeast Asian and Subsaharan African are mostly on my father side so, no questions on that part.
    My maternal grandmother was adopted so we don't know a lot about her background, however, I've heard that one of my great grandmothers was of Spanish descent.
    But my results on My Origins gave me 8% Jewish and only 10% Middle East/North Africa. I've got 14% NA and 2,3 Arab on dna.land, which corresponds more to what I know but I still have 1,2% Ashkenazi. My aunt took a 23andMe test and she had no Jewish but only Middle Eastern, North African, and Southern European (and a little of Subsaharan African and East African).
    I thought that maybe the Jewish diaspora and North African/Middle Eastern were linked but I'm still confused, especially with what I have on GedMatch.
    I am also confused about the Eastern European part. It also appear on dna.land with 4,4% North Slavic, and I wonder if the equivalent on Gedmatch is "Baltic" ?
    And do East Med and West Med correspond to Spain and Italy ?

    Can someone help me ? I know, I ask a lot of questions haha

    Thanks a lot.

    This probably isn't going to help but I am curious what you get with Oracle-4 Using 4 populations approximation

        I uploaded my ancestryDNA raw data here but they won't let me see their version/interpretation of it. Gedmatch broke it down for me using science not genealogists so I know what is what, no guess work.
