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 .
IMPORTANT: I have changed the place where visitors to this website can make and reply to comments. This became necessary because comments were made on the various pages and so they could not be tracked properly. Comments should now be made at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE “FORUM & COMMENTS”, if you want other people to see them and reply (or directly to me at email@example.com) . I have disabled the comments feature on the other pages. The comments that you made on various pages in the past are in my personal log, I will try to shift them to the new page, but until then the old comments will remain on the page where they were originally made.
I reply directly to the comments by e-mail to the sender, as well as occasionally through this website. This is for purely practical reasons in managing the website.
