The results for our surname Castanon DNA came back today. They are R1B1, considered European.. What a mix we are when our ancestors are from Mexico! My maternal MTDNA is Native American, Haplogroup A, my mothers Gutierrez line done through her brother came back Eurasian, Haplogroup N and now a European ancestor.. Doing the genealogy also have given me 3 lines of Mulato ancestors in the mid 1600's in Jalisco, Zacatecas and Michoacan.. I am everything Mexico has to offer! Just thought I'd share the results.

Linda,

What's most impressed me is the joy that you convery from each find, some European, some Native American and some African. You did not go into your DNA research with a fixed agenda, you are open to whatever the analysis proves out.

That's what genealogy is all about, not our pre-conceived expectations. It takes an open mind to see and accept all the possibilities. After all we cannot change all that came before us, we would not be who we are now without all those in our lineage who contributed to our genetic makeup.

I congratulate you for your findings but especially for your openness and acceptance of your ancestors.

Thank you Alicia, the only thing I'm missing is a Jewish line but I haven't given up yet! One day Daniel Mendez will do his DNA and since his ancestor was brother to my gr-grandmother Maria Mendez, just maybe, the Mendez line could be Jewish from Spain?? I'm told Mendez is one of the converso names.. time will tell.

For those that don't understand DNA, here is an explanation.

Your R1b1 Haplogroup in your father's Castanon line means that his
father, and his father's father, etc. ancestry traces directly back
to your European ancestors. Your father's direct line is European.

Your mother's direct line is Native American Haplogroup A which means
that her mother, her mother's mother, her mother's mother's mother
etc can be traced back to a Native American woman. Your mtDNA will
be A, the same as your mother's haplogroup. Since only the women
pass on the mtDNA, it traces your direct female line.

Your mother's father, however is Haplogroup N, Eurasian. That means
that his father, and his father's father, etc. are all Haplogroup N
and can be traced back to your Eurasian ancestor who first came to
Mexico.

Even though you are a mixture of all these people and Haplogroups,
your mtDNA will only show your mother's line, your brother will only
show your father's line. Aunts, uncles, and cousins will show their
Haplogroups from their same sex parents.

All in all, your results show you are a true Mexican. A beautiful
mixture of all the peoples of Mexico. How lucky you are to know this.

Most DNA testers are of European descent. There are not enough
people of Spanish and Mexican descent in the databanks. I look
forward to the day when those of us with Mexican ancestry of every
Haplogroup can trace our ancestry through DNA.

DNA testing for my Mexican ancestry (my father's line) has opened up
a whole new avenue of research for me because of an unexpected result
of J2b1b (J2e2). There are surprises out there if we want to look.

If anyone is interested in learning more about their Mexican Heritage
and DNA, I recommend Gary Felix's website, The Genealogy of Mexico at
http://members.tripod.com/~GaryFelix/index63.htm

Thank you for sharing your results. I hope it encourages others with
a Mexican heritage to test their DNA.

Linda,

Please correct me if my thinking is incorrect...

You posted the following : " Even though you are a mixture of all these people and Haplogroups, your mtDNA will only show your mother's line, your brother will only
show your father's line."

It's my understanding that both female and male offspring carry their mother's mtDNA. It's only the female offspring that will continue to pass the mtDNA down a direct line, to both her female and male offspring. If one's brother's mtDNA is tested it would match that of his female sibling's mtDNA.

The mtDNA in males can be tested...
The YDNA that males received from their father is not passed to females, but continues to be passed from male offspring to their male offspring in a direct line.
