I joined last Oct 2018, and I am still not listed in the mtdna list. My mtdna haplogroup is C1b9. Thanks!

My daughter in law's haplogroup is B4'5. She's listed as 53% NA. Anyone else here with that Hap?

I started this journey a little over a year ago. My twin and I were trying to find out who our biological father is. Through DNA we found him. We also found a lot of cousins and we are so excited to meet them. Most family is in Texas. We are going there very soon. So excited.

You may also find the de Berry name in Louisiana as well.

Who does kit #555042 belong to? I think we may have a common ancestor. I have kit #894063. We are both HERNANDEZ.

I've emailed this kit to tell them about your post. However, while you both may have the same haplogroup designation you do not actually match in STR results. Which means you do not come from the same Hernandez lineage.

I am researching my father's line. Tony Ramos Kit #99619 Y DNA 67 Haplogroup R-L2 So far not many matches. Why?

The autosomal DNA tests are more popular than the Y-DNA and mtDNA tests. There are also many distant cousins of ours in Mexico. FTDNA is in English and it makes it less likely many of our primos would find this place, let alone test themselves. The origin of your paternal line also plays a role in all this. I've managed to trace my paternal line to the state of San Luis Potosi. Those from the central or Southern part of Mexico may be less likely to cross over to the US compared to those living in the Northern part of Mexico. In my own Y-DNA test, I had zero matches. But when I tested someone whose lineage has been in Nuevo Leon for centuries, there were over 50 matches. The number of children your ancestors had is also a factor. Those from larger families have more possibilities of having other cousins with an interest in genealogy and DNA testing. I have a Ramos uncle I have been meaning to test. I have no direct contact with him, but I have been waiting for the chance to ask him to test for me. Been holding onto a kit for him for years now. I am starting to see a small chance of crossing paths with him in the next year. I saw him a few years ago during a wedding and missed my chance. Won't miss the next chance I see him. You can try to find other Ramos through the different genealogical sites you visit and talk them into taking a Y-DNA test. That would be one way to get matches. It is also possible some Ramos ancestor of yours was not the biological son of the man that gave him his surname.

Richard de la Rosa that is the question for us? Our brick wall is Jose Trinidad Guerra. This man of mystery does not list his parents on the docs we have found!

Well your Y-DNA does not match the other Guerra who claim Antonio Guerra Canamar as their paternal ancestor. Based on that, it does not look like your paternal line goes back to that ancestor.
