In Search of A Heritage..

Hi, I am an african american middle aged female in search of more information on my

mom's grandmother's heritage as well as my african ancestry..


I have done a mtDNA and found that I am a descendant of the D Halogroup most specific

the D1 subgroup..

 I remember 2 cousins(I think Cherokee female cousins) occasionally came up from Jamestown, Virginia to visit my uncle Temple Washington in Port Royal, Va but after his death haven't been in contact; or they may have passed on also to be with our Lord..

Mom said my great grandmother's name was Eliza Piggott(Eliza Washington after marriage to my great grandfather Buck Washington) My grandmother's name was Ivory Washington..

I am hoping to make contact with someone because I would love to visit and introduce my sons and grandchildren to our distant  family in Jamescity. Not to say that I wouldn't luv to find cousins elsewhere.. :)-

Elmira i have tested n i am d1   HVR1 is regular testing and HVR2 is dep clad testing I dont think that there different names for the testing or there would be confusion first i was D then after more testing i was D1  ther is alot more testing to do to refine it i  think so
