Congratulations Dra. Ana

Press Release:

From: Fred Willard, Director of the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research, and Roberta Estes, Director of DNA Research for the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research

Date: June 21, 2007

It is our pleasure to announce the addition of Dr. Ana Oquendo Pabón, MD to the advisory board of the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research as our advisor for DNA and Historical Research. In addition to Dr. Oquendo Pabón?s private medical practice, she has developed a specialty in mitochondrial DNA.

Her DNA and research interests include the Native Population of Puerto Rico as well as that of the United States and the African Diaspora.

In 2003, as early genetic genealogy pioneers, she co-founded the Puerto Rican Geographical DNA project with her brother, Rev. Father Jose Antonio Oquendo Pabón, a humanities professor, island historian, genealogist, and researcher. Through the project and the collaboration of their members, they have successfully determined the ancestral haplotype of many of the oldest surnames on the island such as the Maldonado, the Rivera de Mathos, Ramírez de Arellano and others.

From the outset, Dr. Oquendo Pabón vigorously encouraged mitochondrial DNA testing of DNA participants, corroborating the results of previous scientific studies which have shown the extremely high ancestral frequency of the purportedly extinct Native American/ Taíno people of Puerto Rico.

Dr. Oquendo Pabón?s extensive knowledge of mitochondrial DNA, Native American DNA, genealogy and early historical documents is a welcome addition to the resources of the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research. She will be attending the Lost Colony Symposium on DNA and Recent Research on Sept. 7-9, 2007 at the Lost Colony Center in Washington, NC.

Welcome, Dr. Oquendo Pabón!

Thanks, Greg! Lot of responsibility there.

I sent you an e-mail awhile ago.

Let me know what you think. MEGA stuff.

I wonder who these three people were. They must be related somehow.

Three samples (0.1%) out of the 2,923 that were labeled by the
remaining 21-SNP panel to be pre-R lineages did carry this
transition, all of which were in Hg L sub-branches.
Conversely, a total of 13,686 samples were labeled by the
remaining panel of 21 SNPs to be lineages within Hg R, of
which seven (0.05%) did not carry transition T12705C (but all
carried SNPs typical of Hgs within R). These findings
emphasize the importance of this position as separating Hg
N from R.

As we now know, it is you, me and another person who does not use the forum. It is not whom we thought it was. Guess what, she is an L1b1, Greg!
No wonder she has those markers that match ours.

I am perplexed, Ana. I thought the marker was younger.

Unless I looked at my own page and markers, I believe she had it as well. I will double check and let you know.

Pause ******* Searching.........

Not a mistake.

Haplogroup is L1b1. The sequence definitely has C12705T and C3594T. It has to be the one.

This member also has 107 HVR1 low resolution matches and 1 high resolution match. Whereas, you and I have 0 HVR1 + HVR2 matches.

There is also the observation of A2706G and C7028T in our sequences. Perhaps, these are unique L1c markers too which prevent the HVR1 matches.
