No problem, Charles. But let me absorb it first. I just opened up this
mess when I got home from the office ..... and I am inundated with
messages re same. I think elpadre fainted somewhere.
European: 60 % (I really did know what Indo-European meant)
Although there is documentation for African heritage on both sides for
those 2 specific lines I mentioned and one other, all other direct
ancestral lines maternal OR paternal are either documented creole,
pardo, hacendados (landowners), or hidalgos (Spanish royalty). I think
our oldest line is 15 generations.
African: 15 %
(I would AT least have expected this much).
Native American: 25 % (My ancestors are documented back to the
colonization of the island. Practically speaking, no way do I believe
that I have no Taíno heritage. There was endogamy and consanguinity to
the max, again documented). Could be that it may be that 24 % EA.
We are proud of them all.
As far as phenotypes, my paternal grandmother was literally 85%-90 %
African in appearance. Neither my father or his brother had those
features. My father's paternal grandfather literally was called "El
Indio" for his strong indian features. My mother's mother had blue/
green eyes, was very tall and was European in her characteristics. In
many Puerto Rican families you can find siblings where some are very
dark skinned, some with brown skin, some very fair. Some might have
brown eyes, green eyes, blue eyes. Elpadre was born with blond hair and
green/ hazel eyes. I have very black hair (or I did before my 4
grandchildren age 24 months to 7 years started to come over all at the
same time) . My daughter is blond with green eyes. ;o). My youngest son
looks Hispanic. My daughter and my middle son do not.
