My ancestry, says ancestry.com, is 100% Ashkenazy Jewish!
No, says CRI Genetics, it’s 66.1% Ashkenazy Jewish!

CRI also gave me this helpful information:
You’re 66.1% Jewish
Your ancestors in this region were famous for shepherding. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Rachel, and King David all herded goats and sheep. The idea of being a “shepherd” has since become a metaphor embraced by many Jewish people, committing to a humble life of relative solitude and reflection while also tending to the needs of a flock.
Whatever you say. But 66.1% is far from 100%. Any explanations?
