So previously I had seen myself score some “Coloured” amounts in G25 runs. Coloured people being South Africans who are mixed Khoisan and Afrikaner/Cape Malay or British.

I tested my father recently and was surprised to discover his mtdna haplogroup is L0d, which correlates directly with Khoisan people in South Africa and is the most prevalent haplogroups amongst Coloureds.

Seeing as my dads maternal side is a mix of Romance-based groups I can assume it may have been a byproduct of the Transatlantic Slave Trade that brought the Khoisan ancestor not the Americas.

I do not know much of the Portuguese colonies and movement of Khoisan’s to the Americas, but if someone knows it will help me
