Portuguese DNA Examples

There is no one type or definition for "Portuguese DNA" as it can encompass many different types of DNA classifications. However, comparing DNA between two people of Portuguese ancestry can result in matches. Below are two examples where a man with Azorean ancestry has matching autosomal DNA segments to two different men with only mainland Portugal ancestry.
