    Hi Justin, what is your question? Obviously, you can do the math the same as any of us (and of course with DNA, it doesn't always come out like you might expect). So what exactly is it you're not sure of? Please edit your question to give a fuller question that goes beyond the math or looking up a DNA result. – Cyn Nov 17 '18 at 1:01
  • Justin, please don't be discouraged by the downvotes. It's normal for a new user not to realize that an equivalent question has been asked before. – Ellen Spertus Nov 19 '18 at 19:42

Divide by two each generation. If none of your other great grandparents are Spanish, your half-Spanish ancestor's child (your grandparent) is one fourth Spanish, their child (your parent) is one eighth Spanish, and you are one sixteenth Spanish.
