The DNA test has shown my mother's Mizrahi roots

My grandfather on my father's side is from Hungary. For generations, it was uncertain whether the family has Sephardic or Ashkenazi roots. It was important to us to know this because the different origins also mean different ceremonies in the synagogue. My iGENEA test has now shown that my paternal ancestors were Ashkenazi. My entire family is excited about what we are able to learn nowadays from my saliva sample.

My family on my mother's side are Jews from Iraq. The DNA test has shown that she has Mizrahi roots. Even the region 'Iraq' was unequivocally established genetically. Amazing!

Thanks! I'm converting to Judaism, and though I'm of Celtic/West & East European origin (as far as I know) I am definitely going to check my roots now to see if I've any Jewish ancestry. That would make the conversion process more intense and fufilling! Jacob

I am trying to figure out if it is worth it to take this test. Your comments state what is already obvious, i.e. of course Jews from Iraq are Mizrachi, you don't need a test to know that. Also, Hungarians are mostly Ashkenazi. But still, there may be Jews that from Eastern Europe that have been Ashkenazi for generations, but have Sephardic roots from Gerush Sfarad, specifically Lithuanian Jews. So basically, what did this test actually tell you that was not common knowlege?
