Somos Primos "We are cousins" July 2017

Dear Primos and friends:

In celebration of July 4th, may the profound importance of the American Revolution fill you with gratitude and thankfulness for our great nation and the continuing sacrifices being made to maintain the freedoms we enjoy.

With special thanks to Dr. Carlos Campos y Escalante for the considerable information he sent for the July issue on the many successful voyages and global travels of early Spanish explorers. He also gathered data on the DNA of Mexico, the Indigenous, and the British, showing our connected historic humanity. You will find an enthusiasm and growing involvement in heritage projects, which is really exciting. Do search them out and get involved in one or more heritage projects. We all benefit.

God bless America, and strengthen each of us to be a builders and fortifiers, that we may continue to be a blessing to the world . . .
