That is interesting because I ruled out the possibility of my maternal line ever coming from Spain once I noticed their ancestory was Taino... which is in fact the haplogroup A that confirms it. But now after hearing your story it can still be possible to have had ancestors leave and come back to PR. My grandmother had said her mother's family came from the Canary Islands. I have been trying to go as far back as I can... Do you still have the dna results of your paternal mother's family? please email it to me to see if my results match yours... we can turn out to very well be family.
