Thomas Jefferson was Jewish

Thomas Jefferson was jewish

A new Study raises the Possiblity that Thomas Jefferson was part Jewish.

Michael Hammer, a geneticist at the University of Arizona, said he had compared the Jefferson Y chromosome with those in his database of Y chromosomes and found close matches with four other individuals. There was a perfect match to the Y chromosome of a Moroccan Jew, and matches that differed by two mutations from another Moroccan Jew, a Kurdish Jew and an Egyptian.

Dr. Hammer said he would “hazard a guess at Sephardic Jewish ancestry” for Jefferson, although any such interpretation was highly tentative. Sephardic Jews are descendants of those expelled from Spain and Portugal after 1492.–NYT

  1. Emily Garland Westerinen, a direct descendant of Jefferson, is of English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, French, German-Jewish, African, and Moroccan-Jewish descent! (Also possibly Egyptian, another Moroccan-Jewish, and Kurdish-Jewish descent).

  2. Correction:
    Emily Garland Westerinen, a direct descendant of Jefferson, is of English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, French, German-Jewish, Finnish, African, and Moroccan-Jewish descent! (Also possibly Egyptian, another Moroccan-Jewish, and Kurdish-Jewish descent).

  3. So does the Del Rubio Triplets through Jefferson’s sister Mary Jefferson and they are part Jewish in ancestry, Christians in religion. They are Melungeons due to the relationship of John Rolfe and Pocahontas and Bolling.
