isnt Sophia Levi jewish?

If you look at Sophia Levi’s tree (the last one linked above), she isn’t Jewish at all, and has several ancestors named Christina on her family tree, among other things. Her line goes back to a Conrad Heinrich Levi, born probably around the late 1600s in Germany, and who was surely not Jewish. “Levi” can be a non-Jewish German surname (as well as an Irish surname, by the way).
