|My mom has a bit less Middle Eastern, and has Mediterranean/Southern European where I am do not. I am assuming this is likely coming from her French ancestors in Virginia.|
The surprise in these estimates are the Middle Eastern/Central Asian signals. As interesting as my dad's Ashkenazi ancestry would be, I'm not convinced this is real, at least at that amount. A very helpful user who makes a point of analyzing Jewish DNA on GEDmatch helped analyze my dad's ethnicity estimates, comparing my dad's DNA with others using the one-to-many matches and triangulation, and concluded no solid evidence for Ashkenazi ancestry (although there my be some distant Ashkenazi, but not to warrant the equivalent of a great-great-grandparent).
