    L1c2a1b

    My mtDNA result was L1c2a1b! Central Africa. I am curious when and how this ended up in Mexico. So far, google has led me nowhere with information. Anyone else here belong to it? I'm hungry for information.

    Most African slaves brought to Mexico were from West Africa, as in the rest of the New World. However, smaller numbers of slaves were also brought across the Atlantic from the Congo Valley and Angola. If your lineage is Central African, it may have originated there. As for when, the largest numbers of Africans seem to have been brought into Mexico in the 16th and 17th centuries.

    I see trace amounts of Central and East African and 2 point something of West African, so I think slavery is probably the right theory. I think I had initially discarded the idea of female slaves as rare or improbable, but they, of course, must have had female slaves.
