I know that some Ivey branches have an oral history of Portuguese ancestry; in SC, there was the famous Thomas Hagans court case. Growing up in NC, I'd always heard Portuguese was used as code for "mixed race". 23andMe recently updated their Ancestry Composition, and my 3% Iberian is now identified as Portuguese! I have no known Iberian ancestry, but perhaps there was something to those old stories?

Re: Portuguese

I think you do have Portuguese. Using Eurogene K13 your have West Med 14.40%, /
Eurogene K15 you have 10.6% and K36 you have 11.33 percent Iberian. Either you have some Portuguese and Spanish or a little of both. What do you think.

Re: Portuguese

I believe that I must. On Ancestry I show 8% Iberian Peninsula at a high confidence. I have read that Ancestry is getting ready to update their site and Iberian will be broken down into Spanish & Portuguese. I can't wait to see what mine says!

Re: Portuguese

Admixture results is not just one country but an area. Therefore Iberian Peninsula is more that just Poruigal. Are you using the K36 Admixture. It is great for Europe but is poor for African and American Indian. I will be uploading a lot of Ivy ethnic information hopefully in the next week. Then as soon as I can get it type will my first common ancestor finding.

Re: Portuguese

This was on 23andMe... they updated their ancestry composition to more specific locations. Under "Iberian Peninsula" I was given "Portugal"; however, they updated again and "Portugal" disappeared. I do still show a small amount of Iberian. On Ancestry I show 8% Iberian. They too are working on an update, so I can't wait to see if they identify my Iberian as Portuguese or Spanish (or Basque).
