The heritage of this year’s Eurovision contestant for Malta, Michela Pace, perfectly fits the themes of her competing song, “Chameleon.” She is 28.2% Italian, 28% Greek and South Italian, 14.5% Sephardic Jewish – North African, 13.6% Sardinian… wait, we’re not done yet… 6% North African, 4.3% West Asian, 3.7% Middle Eastern, and 1.7% Nigerian! Quite the ethnic “chameleon”!
We found more than 450 of Michela’s relatives in our records, from 21 different countries. The closest match we found was a 1st cousin once removed from Australia, who shares 4.5% of Michela’s DNA.
“This is an impressive tool,” says Michela. “I never knew that I had Greek, Sardinian and North African roots, so all this was a first for me.”
How does she feel about the discovery? “Extremely surprised to say the very least!”
