Hi, I'm Portuguese-American with roots to Madeira,Portugal. My great-great grandfather was from the British West Indies and all of his grandparents came from Madeira, Portugal in the mid-1800's. Here are my DNA results:


22% European

1% Southeast Asian

0.7%North African

So since my Portuguese roots are through the Madeira Islands the same Islands Cristiano Ronaldo's family is from Madeira as well, and the population of Madeira was only 132,223 in 1891, isn't it inevitable me and and him are cousins, since mine and his ancestors have been on those islands since the mid 1400's?

I'm 9th cousins to Prince Williamd and Harry through his mother AND father even though I live in Texas. Anything is possible. You'll have to do the research to figure it out.

Have you found your other great-grandparents?
