I'm even more surprised with the 1.4% Oceanian ancestry. Wouldn't expect a Puerto Rican to have roots in the areas near Australia. 5.1% Mesopotamian surprised me as well.

Having DNA from the Mediterranean, Mesoamerica and Africa was pretty much expected and not that surprising.

yea I don't know where that Oceanian comes from haha... my theory is that the australoids are related to the people of India and the people of India are related to the gypsies and the gypsies have always been a part of spain so my guess is that Oceanian=gypsy? lol

Im assuming the Mesoptamian is of Levantine origin...maybe Sephardic jewish?
