This page is dedicated to "Portu Ricans," Puerto Ricans with Portuguese ancestry. It also serves as a space for those who want to learn more about what genetically connects these two distinct populations.
Why highlight "Portu Ricans?"
Recent updates to AncestryDNA results can now breakdown the Iberian Peninsula. Some Puerto Ricans are showing a higher percentage of Portuguese ancestry, in some cases even more than their Spanish ancestry. This site aims to recognize the influence the Portuguese have had within Puerto Rican history and help promote the “Portu Ricans” conversation within the greater Portuguese and Puerto Rican communities.
