Hello there, I’m Manel, I was born and raised in Algiers (Alger) in northern Algeria, but my family comes from different parts of the country.
My mother’s family is from Cherchell, a coastal city on the mediterranean shore (both her parents are from there). As for my dad, his father is from Tiaret (south east algeria) . We only speak arabic, no member of my family speaks amazigh.
My results on Ancestry DNA:
36% North African (Berber or Amazigh)
27% Middle Eastern
11% Sub Saharan African
2% European Jewish
DNA Land Results:
51% North African
4.5% East African
11% Southwestern European
11% Ashkenazi/Levantine: 9.9 Mediterranean Islander (?) and 1.2% Ashkenazi
3% South/central European
1.1% Native Oceanian
I did the test with Ancestry Dna: https://www.ancestry.ca/dna/?geo_a=r&geo_s=us&geo_t=ca&geo_v=2.0.0&o_iid=64405&o_lid=64405&o_sch=Web+Property
I don’t live in Algeria so I don’t know if the test can be done there.
Thanks for watching!
New videos about my travels are coming 🙂 stay tuned!
