Searches in Jalisco
Just got DNA results from 23&me. It shows 90% European. Primarily Spanish, French and a bit of German. Where the German came from...I don't know, yet. It shows equal shares of Northern and Southern European. Ten percent Asian, as my Mother used to say, somos de la raza de bronze y se nos sala lo Indio. As I read the book, DNA USA, the author stated, The orange segments in our DNA show Mexicans are also descended from the First People (as are Native Americans) who crossed into America from Asia. (page 242) Interesting. Although the book covers majority of European and very little on Mexico or Central/South America.
I have found many of my ancestors and have started my family tree. I cannot express my gratitude sufficently to the staff of Nuestros Ranchos for getting me started and helping me in my searches. It has taken me hours of searching through civil and church records but have been very successful in discovering my roots.
A question, should we download our records to help others in their searches?
