    Are any of your matches Danish (or from neighbouring countries)?

    Let us assume that your father thought he was Danish.
    • What if he was adopted (and nobody told him)?
      (no Danish ancestors, no Danish matches expected)
    • If his mother was Danish, and his bio-father Colombian, you should have some Danish (Scandinavian) matches.
      (calculated European percents look like southern-European ancestry, but let us check with the matches)

    Fanny94, more likely you are descended from many different Amerindian people who lived about 10+ generations ago, rather than one recent full Amerindian. Repeated mixing over 10+ generations between Spanish and Amerindian elements has been common in most Latin American countries.

    Thank you very much abuelita
    in view of the Amerindian% you think my grandmother would be Native American? about 20% Native American means that it is a recent ancestor?

    Your father was mestizo, a mix of Amerindian and Iberian (mostly - maybe some other pan-Mediterranean). The "Siberian" and "East-Asian" are probably just an extra bit of Amerindian - which seems to be somewhere between 17 and 20 percent using the gedmatch models.

    If male, you might be interested in getting a Y test - all you would need is a Y-12 to see if you are Q or not. But, because the Spanish colonizers tended not to bring women with them but to mate instead with native women, mestizos most often got their indigenous component through maternal, not paternal lines - so you likely have a European Y. If you are curious, and did your autosomal test at Family Tree, it is a 59$ add-on. If Q, you could get a lot of interesting information through the Q-M242 project.
