    Looking for Costa/da Costa Happogroup J-M172

    I have posted something about this in French, but since I am more looking for Portuguese people, I thought that I should aim more broadly. The story goes like this. We do not know what the origin of our ancestor Jehan Coste/Jean Côté who arrived in New France about 1635. Some speculate that he is in fact the son of Mathieu da Costa who was an interpreter for Champlain. We do have a triangulated Y-DNA signature. I have compared it to some Da Costa in the Azores and there are similarities.
