    Paternal DNA was from Portuguese 100% through African Ancestry. The males on the maternal side looks like they are mixed with Portuguese. I know Portugal was part of the Atlantic Slave trade, I just didn't expect it would be Portugal.

    Even though I was born in Mexico, I wanted to find out more of my ancestors since we always heard “we have Spanish in our blood” but to find out I have Asian, African, was jaw dropping.

    I'm Nigerian mostly. Also Cameroon, Congo and Western Bantu. It does give you a sense of belonging. Every living thing should have roots/ origin.

    This is why I feel dna companies and ancestry should offer a specific program for African Americans to help us make those connections that we were robbed from. On another note, I belong to the Benin and Cameroon people I am also part Nigerian. I am also 15% European.

    I'm a mut descendant of white trashness. After my grandparents the lineage line just kindof...falls off... we have guesses what we're mixed with but I've never really felt like I had any type of heritage or culture. We think we're mainly Irish but 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ but then again. Does any of that really define me?
