      Hola Amigos:
      Cultural sharing of la musica. IL Divo "The Promise".  Four singers one American, one Spaniard, one French and one Italian. Great music.

      I appreciate all the input on Middle Eastern dna. Just as an aside, we also did a FTDNA Family Finder on my northern Italian wife. She came out around 70% "northern European" and around 30% "Middle Eastern". So, except for my Native American ancestry our dna looked very similar. She is 1st generation Italian and a dual Italian citizen so she has no dna from the Americas.

      Correct, but of those that do list their heritage or at least ancestral family names, none are apparantly ME or Jewish. Maybe I'm thinking too literally. --- In mailto:MexicoDNAProject%40yahoogroups.com, sangerjaime@... wrote: > > > Annette, > > I do not think FTDNA allows one to access the ethnic percenages of your Fact Finder cousins?

The most common seem to be German, English and Mexican with NONE listing Middle Eastern or Jewish origins. Approximately 36-40% of all my matches are Mexican. Is this because of a disproportunate number of people testing from certain ethnic groups? > > Thanks, > Annette > > P.S. I am an adoptee with little info about my background. I was told bio-mom was European (English/German- obviously correct) and now it seems bio-dad was Mexican instead of Italian as I'd been told.

My Family Finder on FTDNA indicated I have 30.8% Middle Eastern dna.
