Thanks so much for the reply.
Your email reminded me of the Iberian Peninsula DNA Project (www.familytreedna.com/surname
) run by Angel Cervantes,
a history teacher and the Project Administrator.
At first glance, this appears to be a commercial service for anyone interested in having their DNA Haplogroup tested
to obtain the origin of that person's ancestor.
This site seems right up my alley, and may substantiate
the purported common ancestry of the Abranches / Almada families.
Who were once one family.
Let me know your thoughts on this Allen; perhaps you can
broaden my knowledge of DNA Haplogroups as they apply to
Until then, take care!
