Hungary - Genetic tests conducted in Hungary suggest that the relative prevalence there of Jewish genes is double that of the United States.

In recent testing conducted by the MyHeritage firm and the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, slightly more than 7.5 percent of 4,981 people tested had more than 25 percent Jewish Ashkenazi genes, the firm announced Tuesday.

Hungary has about 100,000 people who are considered Jewish by the largest organization representing Hungarian Jewry. That number accounts for about 1 percent of Hungary’s population.

Gilad Yefet, a representative of MyHeritage, said in a statement that testing in other countries suggests that Hungary has the highest prevalence of Ashkenazi Jewish genes after Israel.

In tests conducted in the United States and Canada, only 3.5 percent of tested individuals displayed Ashkenazi Jewish genes at a rate exceeding 25 percent of their genetic material.

Testing in Russia, Argentina and Ukraine all showed greater prevalence than in the United States but smaller than in Hungary, according to the study by MyHeritage, which markets DNA tests commercially.

Yes, we are Alt-Yidden. "Alt" as in "old," the old and venerable image of what a Jew should be. You, by contrast, are a Yevsek, thinking you're going to destroy the "old Jew" and replace him with New Soviet Jew, as your comrades tried to do in the 1920s and '30s. Well, the Yevsektzia's members ended up getting liquidated by those they tried to curry favor with; one can only hope that you will come to your senses without the need for that.

That will explain why Hungarians (Soros . Reichmans etc) are the smartest nationals. If you Google Jewish Billioners thay are mostly hungarians.

This is possibly because of children given to non Jews during the war and lost to our people.

Another factor is that in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there were many Jews who intermarried and even converted to Christianity in order to advance professionally and socially in Hungary,

When Jews migrated down from Galicia (in some form of numbers) over the carpathian mountains in the 17th century, they were mostly boys, who were running away from the troubles. They found it peaceful and plenty of work in "Marmorosh" territory.
With no yeshivas, not much of a kahilah, when time came to marry some went back, however many girls did not want to follow them to Hungary and stayed put in Galicia. Many others just stayed on in Hungary since is was a better life there, and ended up marrying local Hungarian or Gipsy girls whom they converted before marriage. These boys were sought after as they had finer characters than the local drunk riff-raff.
This is the same reason there are so few Kohanim Hungarians "compared" to Polish, Russian, German or other Jews. The Kohanim they have are later immigrants from other Jewish communities. The original Hungarians as they married and mixed with the locals, many ended up just lost to yiddishkiet, however their Jewish genes are still passed down.
