Three ancient populations from Middle America have been studied: a 500–675 YBP sample of Post-Classic Aztec from Tlatelolco, Mexico, a 480–1400 YBP Maya sample from Xcaret, Mexico and a 750–1300 YBP Maya sample from Copán, Honduras. The two ancient Mexican populations exhibit a high frequency of haplogroup A, like many modern Middle American populations, but the ancient Maya population from Copán belongs primarily to haplogroup C.

Mexican marketer From a scarce CDV album of mexican occupationals made by the studio Cruces y Campa in the 1860s. (Bunolera) The album contains 40 views of occupations, vendors and marketeers, a portrait of a woman (maybe the owner) and a view of the three Naoleons. So maybe this album had been brought from Mexico by one of the soldiers of the emperor Maximilian. - visit us on line at www.mainlymexican... and on eBay #Mexican #Mexico #antique #vintage #photography #women

The first Mexicans were Olmec. Their culture flourished from around 1200 B.C. and lasted to about 200 A.D. These folks were native to America & were in no way linked to any other group (outside of the six founder haplogroups) until after Columbus' arrival and conquest.
