Mitochondrial Haplogroup C Native American

My paternal grandfather’s Full Mitochondrial Sequence results came in yesterday, his haplogroup is C1c5, which Roberta Estes included in her list of provisional Native American haplogroups Extrapolated from Anzick match results.  I have previously written about my paternal grandfather’s high amount of Native American DNA.

Paternal grandfather’s full mitochondrial sequence results are haplogroup C1c5 Native American

2-paternal-grandpa-mtdna-ancestral-originsHe has 2 perfect, distance 0 mtDNA matches among 14, one is Mr. Raymundo Linares. I wouldn’t usually share a match’s name, but in this case, he already has a deep mitochondrial genealogy out there published by Crispin Rendon. Mr. Linares’ furthest maternal ancestor was a woman named Josefa Gonzalez born about 1620 in Huichapan, Hidalgo, Mexico. My grandfather is likely not a descendant of Josefa herself because her children were born in Nuevo Leon, but Hidalgo borders Tlaxcala and that might is a clue to focus on the Hidalgo/Tlaxcala area outside of Mexico City.  A huge THANK YOU! to all those who do this very neglected DNA test, especially for full sequence results.
