The father was already tested and those are the results? Or this is just speculation? Q - okay. M3 or Z780, probably others. But there are a number of possibilities for indigenous mtDNA besides the As: there are lots of Ds, Bs and Cs. (X2a too though the later seems not likely in Peru) There can be quite an assortment, even within a relatively small geographical area. Among new world mtDNA haplogroups, A is somewhat less that 50% as I remember.

As for separating out North/South/Central in "ethnicity estimates." That is just yielding nonsense.

My birth father was never tested. I think there's a side bar going on, but I did run my data on Morley and the Y haplogroup was A1B1B1 I'm not sure if that's right since he has not been tested for anything.

I found a 2nd-4th cousin on ftdna who is Mexican. Another that is more distant and is Puerto Rican.

I've found 4 close cousins on ancestry who are Mexican and 6 that are distant. 26 very distant cousins from Peru. None of my close matches on ancestry are Peruvian. Most don't even know who my birth father's family are or their surname.

My wife is Peruvian and got similar results.

My wife is 100% Peruvian and can trace her lineage back several generations on both sides of her family. Her results only show about 5% South American. 60% North and Central American 30% Iberian (makes sense since she is Hispanic) and about 5% other.
