You guys ever wonder if you had a maternal great great great great grandmother that wasn’t Jewish and if that disqualifies you from being Jewish?

I get that Jewish anxiety can be dumb and all but sometimes you have those 3 AM thoughts where you’re like “What if my entire family and I aren’t Jewish because one of my forgotten female ancestors wasn’t Jewish and we just never knew?”

I can confirm that every relative up to my great great grandparents were seemingly Jewish, but I stupidly have thoughts like “what if there’s just one person? One female ancestor of mine that wasn’t actually Jewish? Is my Jewishness a sham?! Would I not be seen as a Jew in the eyes of Hashem? If not then what’s the point of keeping all those 613 commandments?!”

Edit: It’s a stupid thought, I know. Hence the nonsense flair.
