  2. JEFFREY ancestors possibly Jewish?

  7. NUNN & TATT

    I am descended from a Nunn and Tatt in Sturmer, Suffolk. My genes say I am Jewish or at least semetic through the maternal line. I have often been asked if I am Jewish or told that I look Jewish. I would love to know how far this goes back. Genes have been traced from Germany and Sardinia.
