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!
