Is Iberian DNA common in English and German people? I read the Iberian people were from the Germanic tribes.

I'm German and Irish mostly and I have no Iberian DNA based on 23andme results. On Gedmatch I have a trace of West Mediterranean but nothing labeled "Iberian". I have a paternal haplogroup of R L-51 that is probably older than present day populations identified as anything. It probably originated with Bronze/Iron Age people somewhere on the way to western Europe.

I think it's possible, I know if I go far back enough in some of my trees I have Dutch/French German/Italian French/Spanish English/Finnish and so on marriages.

What percentage was it?

Here is where Iberian is most common. This is from Eupedia.

Iberian admixture

This admixture peaks among the wider Basque region, including former Basque speakers in Navarra and Aragon. It is found at a high percentage throughout the Iberian peninsula, but is generally lower in western Iberia and along the Mediterranean coast, where many non-Iberian people have settled throughout history (Phoenicians, Hallstatt Celts, Greeks, Romans, Suebi, Vandals). It is also common among Occitan speakers in the southern half of France, surely due to the Neolithic connection with the Iberian peninsula.



It depends on what percentages you are talking about as well. Generally with admixture it has a peak and then becomes less the further away from the signal you are.

Ancestry says 9% Iberian.

My wife has no known Spanish ancestors but came up 20% Iberian. Based on shared matches it all appears to be from her mom's side.

These are estimates and not to be taken literally. My European ancestors are all from Britain and Germany, and I get 9% Italy/Greece in Ancestry, with 1% Iberian. It means that these populations share DNA that is very similar to the DNA in Britain and Germany.
They also say I'm 30% Scandinavian while I have no known Scandinavian ancestors. So take it with a grain of salt.

You're probably Scandinavian from some migration in the past.

Apparently they get Italian mixed up with Iberian on ancestry. Ancestry says I have Iberian and my family tree says Italian.
