I am a black American and I took an ancestry and found out I’m 15% Portuguese and my great Grandfather may have been Puerto Rican. I am connecting to all these 3rd and 4th cousins who are Puerto Rican and it’s amazing to see. I’m glad I found this page. Thank you @toniwu222 on TikTok and Ig

Oh, that is amazing! There is something so relieving about finding a deep connection - entangled with surprises - to your ancestry. I also have Portuguese in my DNA as do many Puerto Ricans from the island that share the Taino bloodline. Hmmm....definitely something I should write about! I am @notjustawriter on IG - - I should get one for this substack!
