Hello all.  I ran across your thread when trying to research our family linage.  I just received my results from National Geographic Geno project which states I'm B2b which confuses me.  My grandmother was born in Adjuntas, P.R. She was light complected with blond hair and blue eyes as well as her brothers.  My mother was also fair complected with very thick black coarse hair.  Per family members, we are supposed to originate from the Canary Islands.  My test show we migrated from Africa to Asia then across America to South America, then they stated they have no more information at this time.  I felt it was pretty vague.  Does these results sound accurate?  Anyone's help & input would greatly be appreciated.  My grandmothers last name was Serrano Y Acevedo.

I'm aware of that testing group but not too familiar with them.  I first tested with the National Geographic genome project.  Then they seemed to merge with or turn their data over to Family Tree.  I then did a second set of testing with Family Tree and now have a "family finder" test in the works, and waiting for results.  We'll see what happens or what I find out. I'm adopted but knew I was Native American before I first tested but did it more to just have the results in black and white to prove what I already knew.  Again Good luck with your further research.  It is interesting.

Thanks so much for your response, Marilyn.  I had my testing done by 23andme; I saw that they are involved in some of the shows of Who Do You Think You Are, and they were starting a new medical group, so the price was right ^>^ .  I don't have a great many questions now, as I found some of the answers I needed.  Think I was just a bit overwhelmed, as I didn't realize there was so much involved.   Thanks again.

We're kind of a small group of only 29 members.  Did you have a specific question?  If you want more general info on A2 haplogroup you could Google the A2 group.  Who did your testing?  They should also have additional information about your test results.  Good luck; I'm sorry that I can't help much as I really don't know much about the A2 group.  I'm C1b and I know I'm Ojibwa.

Does this group still meet?  Or perhaps meet elsewhere?

Hi !

I just learned this week that I am haplogroup A2.  I am hoping that being in this group will help me to better understand my results, and will give me some folks to share my thoughts/ideas etc with as I learn.  

I have known for some time that I have Lumbee heritage on my Dad's maternal line (paper trail).  I also believe that there may be additional NA heritage in my Mom's maternal line and possibly in my Dad's paternal line.  Can't prove it.  Lots of FPOC and Mu designations, and some oral history.  (This could turn out to be simply FPOC and Mu, which is fine too.  ^>^ )  I just want to know the truth.

We are, generally, North Carolina people.  The majority of my (tested) heritage is European with about 1/3 African American.  I identify as African American.

I'm haplogroup B2 and my family comes from Colombia

I discovered today from my 23andMe DNA test that I am part of the B4'5 haplogroup, with subset of B2.  I was adopted and found my birth mother's family so I was aware of my Native American Ancestry, but this actually confirms what my birth-mother stated.  I am going to get my Brother on my dad's side tested also.  He is African American and French-Creole.  I was raised in an African American household and that is how I identify.

I just got the results for my FTDNA full mtDNA test.  It confirmed my haplogroup as C1b2a, but I have no matches for the full test though I have at least 40 matches at HVR2, and hundreds at HVR1.

I noticed in one of the articles it made reference to a more limited number of Native Americans that have been tested for the full sequence.  Maybe one factor is the cost which may be very limiting for many Native people.  Is there a way to place one's name on a list for researchers to benefit the researcher as well as the client wishing to have a full sequence test?
