Thanks for your response....
Yep, I understand that these tests are only reflective of two of my my many, many lines.
Looking at my ancestor charts and from Oral History the possibilty for these results aren't that surprising.
My Paternal Grandfather (1853-1925) was "alleged" to have been the result of an interracial liasion (white male/black female) so this might explain the Y-DNA results.
Following my Maternal lines we get back (directly) to a 4th Great-Grandmother (1795-1865) who was also in an interracial relationship (Black Man/White Woman) so perhaps the mtDNA isn't too far-fetched either.
As I've posted before the results for a cousin who would follow my Grandfather's Y-DNA done by Dr. Kittles group indicate a Spanish/Portugese background.. So who knows
Guess I'm just a Heinz 57 version.....lots of ingredients .
Stay tuned next result wii be 37 Marker Y-DNA.
