Cross-Ethnic Autosomal DNA Matches
Between Members of the Sephardic World Migrations Project


* Sephardic Jews matching Ashkenazic Jews
* Sephardic Jews matching Latin Americans, Iberians, Guamanians, and Filipinos
* Ashkenazic Jews matching Latin Americans, Iberians, Guamanians, and Filipinos

A typical Sephardic segment shared across ethno-religious groups from a common ancestor in the 1400s or 1500s has a length between 6 cM and 13 cM. The longer a segment is, the closer the relationship usually is. Some carriers of a Sephardic segment will match each other more strongly because of a more recent common ancestor held between certain matching pairs.  Due to the homozygous nature of endemic populations smaller segments to 2cM's can also be used to tie project members to specific populations of Sephardic people.
