FIND YOUR DEEP ROOTS IN FRENCH SOIL WITH
THE NEW MEXICO DNA PROJECT
The goal of the New Mexico DNA Project is to help people find their ancient origins, whatever they may be. To discover previously unknown living relatives. To determine migration patterns of different families. To see if similar sounding surnames are related. To discover how closely related all of us really are. To share this information with others so that we can learn more about where we came from. One can also test confidentially if privacy is a concern.
To join the project , go to http://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=New-Mexico-DNA. A description of the tests is at http://www.familytreedna.com/test-descriptions.aspx .
So far nearly 2,000 New Mexicans have been tested. The website displays a list of family names whose members have been tested or for whom testing would further knowledge of New Mexico’ human history. This list is preliminary and does not include all those who are part of the Project.
Everybody is welcome and encouraged, especially those who have (of think they have) French ancestors.
The Project’s director is Angel de Cervantes, who will be delighted to help, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here is a useful website to make it easier for people to understand the intricacies of DNA testing and the pros and cons of various ancestry DNA services as well as the specific types of information you can get from each of them: https://www.innerbody.com/dna-testing/best-dna-ancestry-test
