It is a difficult task finding Sephardic DNA but with more people contributing their DNA to the Family Finder utility is becoming easier.
I noticed a relative (of my Mother Dolores Felix) match with 4 grandparents from Morocco with this person living in Israel. Through correspondence he confirmed Sephardic ancestry.
He my Mother's matches :
7 Morocco Morocco Morocco Morocco FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE 1 244.8 249.1 4.3 7.7 8 Spain Spain Not Provided Not Provided FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE 1 244.4 249.1 4.7 8.7 9 US Not Provided US US FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE 1 244.5 249.1 4.6 8 10 Mexico US Mexico US FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE 1 244.4 248.5 4.1 7.6 11 France France France Algeria FALSE FALSE FALSE FALSE 1 244.4 248.5 4.1 7.6 Email contact confirms Sephardic DNA from Morocco on Chromosome 1 between 244.8 and 249.1
Match 9 has a Spanish surname.
I have updated the research page:
I have noticed that at least some of the previous matches on research page have shifted over with slightly different begining and ending segments since the research began.
