African American DNA Research Forum
Introduction and Hello
Hello all. I have placed in my profile the following:
Puerto Rican priest/genealogist (living on island) with paper trail descendancy from 6 known slaves and several freed men and women from circa 1750-1800, all in Puerto Rico; one couple appear to be escapees from St. Thomas. NONE of them in Y or mt lines. After almost 25 yrs of gen. got into genetic genealogy with my sister, a medical doctor living in FL. We are full siblings, she has tested L13 for mtDNA and I have tested E3a for Y-DNA although in DNA print we are highly European and 24% First Peoples background according to her results. I have done 37 markers with one company and am waiting for Snps from another to try to pinpoint place of origin of father's line. If you can read Spanish, my site is pretty big with pedigrees, stories, links, workshops concerning mostly Puerto Rican research. If you can't my sister has mirror site in English (just take off the "llegamos.htm" and add "index.html".
