augment my understanding of social history and to learn more about my family from a different perspective. My mother has been telling me stories about her childhood in Puerto Rico and i've been able to expand that through genealogy.
I was visiting the ancestry site today and noticed that one of your matches as well as my husband's has a ydna haplogroup assignment Q3.
I found that so interesting, both parents are native Americans. :)
Hello Ellen, my name is Ugo Perego and I am a PhD student studying Native American mtDNA. I am also a researcher in the field of genetics and genealogy. I am interested in your comment about C1 in Puerto Rico. Do you belong to the Native American mtDNA haplogroup C1? Did you have your control region or complete genome sequenced? If you would like, you can write me on my direct email address at email@example.com and we can talk about it. I have some unpublished data that I could use to compare your mtDNA to.
