Ancestry Maps


Puerto Rican ancestry map The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


Although Puerto Rico is part of the U.S., the census lists Puerto Rican as an ancestry for those living in the 50 states.

In the 2000 census, 3,406,178 people in the U.S. claimed Puerto Rican heritage. Many have settled in the New York metro area or in Florida.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 6 percent of those people said they were of Puerto Rican ancestry.
