Why do I have a DNA trace of 1% from Afghanistan?


My four grandparents came to America in the 1800s. Being Irish has been my pride . My DNA results were 97% Irish, 2% the UK and 1% trace from the Middle East. My half sister (we had the same father) had a DNA of 98% Irish, 1% UK and 1% trace Iberian Peninsula. Why are we different?
