1. D. asked,
What ethnic groups of people could be Israelites?
Can we only be certain about the Tribe of Judah?
Even though we can only be certain concerning the Jews and Judah we may trace descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes to specific regions and their presence there corresponds to Biblical Prophecies concerning them.
Descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes are to be found mainly among the present-day Jews as well as in the countries of the British Isles including Ireland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Netherlands, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. with sizeable contingents in other areas, e.g. South Africa.

#5. D. asked:
How do you know if you're an Israelite?
OK thank you I'm going to buy that book [i.e. The Tribes]!
Second question is how do you know if you're an Edomite?
You cannot tell whether you are an Edomite or not. Neither is there any special reason why you should.
The Sages said that in our time, since the Assyrians moved different nations around, everyone is mixed.
No-one can say for sure whether or not they bbelong to any of the ancient peoples such Canaan, Edom , Moab, Amon, etc.
It follows that any particular ruling that many once have been applicable to any specific group can no longer apply.
Nether the less we historically groups with names and attributes and sometimes traditions, etc, that indicate that Edomites settled in certain areas.
There is nothing wrong with being an Edomite. On the contrary we were commanded to respect them and others.
7 You shall not detest an Edomite, for he is your brother; you shall not detest an Egyptian, because you were an alien in his land. 8 The sons of the third generation who are born to them may enter the assembly of the LORD.
Esau the forefather of Edom would become a warrior nation.
Genesis (NKJV) 37:
39 Then Isaac his father answered and said to him:
'Behold, your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth,
And of the dew of heaven from above.
40 By your sword you shall live,
And you shall serve your brother;
And it shall come to pass, when you become restless,
That you shall break his yoke from your neck.'
Note: Many English Translations in Genesis 37:39 render the verse as saying " your dwelling shall AWAY FROM the fatness of the earth." THIS IS A MISTAKE .
It should be give above i.e. "your dwelling shall be OF the fatness of the earth."
The Sages said we need Edomites in our armed forces to ensure victory.
We have written two books on the subject of Edom:
Edom and Germany
Even though we understand that Edomites were prominent in Germany and other areas they were not necessarily the majority. There were also Israelites in the same regions.
The Book of Amos ch.1 and other sources indicate that when the Ten Tribes were exiled they were re-settled under the supervision of Edomites working on behalf of Assyria.
22 This stone, which I have set up as a pillar, will be God's house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.'
Contributions and Offerings, Book Orders:
9 Honor the LORD with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
10 So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,
Says the LORD of hosts,
If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
