My great grandmother was Tlingit tribe from Wrangell Alaska, born in 1846. I am A2f.

I have mtdna A2. I was illegally adopted in Caracas, Venezuela and have no records of anyone in my birth family. Does anyone know what tribes have the A2 and where they currently reside?

Hello I did a DNA test through 23andme and my Haplogroup is B2.

Hello, I have a mtdna of D1. I know that my mothers family is from Camaguey Cuba. And I'm assuming that this is Taino. Can anyone spread some light on female D1 from Cuba?

My son's results came back from 23 and Me and he is A2. He is adopted and his parents were from East Harlem and of Puerto Rican heritage with very dark skin/hair/eyes, while his is much lighter.  I'm finding the confirmation of his Puerto Rican heritage very exciting. I can't wait to learn more.

I am a member of Haplogroup A4. 

Are there any members of Haplogroup A4 in this forum?

Thought I would drop by on this site and add that I am from Colombia (living in the UK) and I just found out that I am haplogroup A2 on my maternal side. It is interesting since both my mum and sister often get confused for being asian or something here in the UK as the area I live in there is not many people of hispanic/native descent. I tested both HVR1 and HVR2. Still getting my head around this whole thing but I am learning good things!

Hi, I have a very similar profile to Diane S. :B2b with a maternal line from Puerto Rico (San Juan - Rio Grande - Cabo Rojo) that is at least 220 years old.  

My mother and her family are also fair skinned, light hair and eyes.

I find this result a bit perplexing but totally cool!  Contact me if you want to compare notes.

This is a follow-up on my Haplogroup B2.  The locations of my Native American Ancestry is Mexico, New Mexico and Arizona.  Oral History states that we are Apache and Yuchi.  Still trying to find the connection through documents.
