Subject: Re: [Q-R] Who is your most ancient maternal grand-mother?

My father's is Pierrine Rau b 1610 somewhere in France. She married Jean Terriot 05 May
1635 at Martaize, Loudon,, Vienne France and died in Port Royal, Acadia in 1686
I know because I had my uncle (my father is deceased) take a Mitochondrial DNA test
through my maternal lines.
My own is much shorter as my mother was English and ends with a mystery as my
g-grandfather was born out of wedlock and although I know his mother, I do not know her
