1. I was 35% Iberian Peninsula when I first got my DNA results in Dec 2016. Recently, Ancestry did an update and ethnicity estimates changed dramatically. I'm 85% France now! Some of the other smaller ethnicity amounts are mostly UK but I do have African dna as well.

  2. 28% Italian is pretty high, that is grandparent level, so I think it could be one of your grandparents or two great grandparents were Italian, it wouldn't be obvious, unless you have your family tree traced back on all great grandparent lines. You don't say where you were born, or your parents, but there were millions of Italians that emigrated to Latin America as well as North America. The British at 11% and Irish at 5% are likely tied together from one ancestor or a couple – at 16% probably a great grandparent, or two great greats. New DNA studies show the British and Irish DNA Y-DNA R1b1 haplogroup are not as similar to Iberian or Basque as were previously thought, although they partly share an ancient migratory route of farmers from the Ukrainian steppes. But Irish and British lack hunter gatherer DNA that Basque people have.

  3. They are looking for people without RH blood line. These are very special people. Because they was not bred with monkeys like our ancestors. In what are they going to do with your blood type since ancestry sold it to a third party. And you signed an agreement that they can do anything with it they want Google has your blood type now the military has your blood type anyone that wants it can buy it. They can clone you nothing you can do about it because you gave away your rights to your body

  4. You look very Middle Eastern. I lived in North Africa and traveled all over the Middle East. That's why I clicked on your video. I thought you were Middle Eastern.

  5. Celtic/Iberian/South European/Mediterranean type, very nice, beautiful mix.

  6. It’s funny till this day people don’t know the moors was black the drawing and sculptures all over Spain proves it and I’ve been to Spain and have proof sooooo

  7. Read the detailed descriptions on AncestryDNA, they are helpful. I'm part Azorean Portuguese…based on ur results, I'd say ur abt 80-85% Portuguese. Most Portuguese people will have a large portion of Italy/Greece (now Europe South), and even Great Britain and Ireland.

  8. im Portuguese and i really wanna do this!

  9. On Ancestry for some reason Iberians score lots of Italy/Greece. On 23andme you will be 70%+ Iberian.

  10. I guess the 3% Middle-eastern gave you your eyes.

  11. You look pretty cool- great results, honestly- very Portuguese look

  12. For me, because i am Greek, by looking at you, i knew from the first seconds of the video that you have a lot of greek blood. ???.

  13. These comments stating that you look Arab and or North African on average are quite misleading in my opinion. I have met many Arabs and North Africans in my lifetime. Most of them look nothing like you, especially with respect to your skin tone. Having said that you could pass for an Italian and/or Greek, but I would not mistake you for an Arab on average.

  14. Hispanic was originally used to describe anyone relating to spain and portugal. The term now is used more to describe those mixed people from central and south america. Spaniards, Portuguese, Italians, French, and Romanians are Latin people. They are the true Latins. Italians and Spaniards/Portuguese are cousins…all Latin relatives. Most do have middle eastern ancestry due to the centuries of mixing. Genes do not expire like food…they can still get passed down from generations back…it depends on what mom and dad pass down to their children. Europeans do not refer to Spaniards/Portuguese as "Hispanic"…that is an american thing. They are indeed white people even though they have middle eastern/north african ancestry. The U.S. Department of Transportation defines Hispanic as, "persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Central or South American, or other Spanish or Portuguese culture or origin, regardless of race."[1] This definition has been adopted by the Small Business Administration as well as by many federal, state, and municipal agencies for the purposes of awarding government contracts to minority owned businesses.[2] The Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Conference include representatives of Spanish and Portuguese, Puerto Rican and Mexican descent. The Hispanic Society of America is dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of Spain, Portugal, and Latin America.[40] The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, proclaimed champions of Hispanic success in higher education, is committed to Hispanic educational success in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Ibero-America, Spain and Portugal.

    The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission encourages any individual who believes that he or she is Hispanic to self-identify as Hispanic.[41] The United States Department of Labor – Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs encourages the same self-identification. As a result, any individual who traces his or her origins to part of the Spanish Empire or Portuguese Empire may self-identify as Hispanic, because an employer may not override an individual's self-identification.[42]

    The 1970 Census was the first time that a "Hispanic" identifier was used and data collected with the question. The definition of "Hispanic" has been modified in each successive census.[43]

    In a recent study, most Spanish-speakers of Spanish or Hispanic American descent do not prefer the term "Hispanic" or "Latino" when it comes to describing their identity. Instead, they prefer to be identified by their country of origin. When asked if they have a preference for either being identified as "Hispanic" or "Latino," the Pew study finds that "half (51%) say they have no preference for either term."[44] A majority (51%) say they most often identify themselves by their family’s country of origin, while 24% say they prefer a pan-ethnic label such as Hispanic or Latino. Among those 24% who have a preference for a pan-ethnic label, "'Hispanic' is preferred over 'Latino' by more than a two-to-one margin—33% versus 14%." Twenty-one percent prefer to be referred to simply as "Americans."[45]

  15. Your results are common in Portugal

    100% Portuguesa 😉

  16. Cool results I am Portuguese as well and I made a video on YouTube as well your results are similar to mine

  17. You never mentioned what part of Portugal your parents are from. It makes a difference. We share the same last name and even though Alves is a super common name, it's possible we could be related. I'm Açoreano. Bit of a different genetic make up on the islands. És do continente ou das ilhas?

  18. Italic people originate from central Europe and are from the same gene pool as the French, Swiss, Austrains and Spanish. Greeks originate from Asia so how the hell can some one have Greek/Italian DNA, it doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.

  19. It is a bit sad how disappointed you are to not be 100% Portuguese :(….I would love to have a mixed ancestry…

  20. you are cute as a bugs ear and i LOVE the pattern of that pretty chair or couch behind you!

  21. You look extremely Middle Eastern (West Asian) in my opinion. You look exactly like my aunt. I am from Saudi Arabia, I did the DNA test and got 100% Middle Eastern.

  22. Spain and Portugal were not colonised, they were ruled fairly. Colonisation is when one people subjugated another, usually by 'divide and rule' and violence. The moroccan Arabs opened that land and brought with it a rich civilization. It was not violent or bloody, nor were they subjugated or enslaved. Colonisation is what Spain and Portugal did to Latin America.

  23. Anyone ever tell you that you look like Ariana Grande?

  24. Well both the Greeks and the Romans colonised "Hispania" before the moors so that shouldn't be surprising. I'm intrigued add to why the British component wasn't surprising?

  25. You Dont look portuguese at all You look spanish
