I am hoping that matches on DNA results will help us clean up our family history

and avoid speculation about parents.

These are the results of my DNA tests.

Y-DNA haplogroup G2a: most distant male ancestor = Juan Domingo Romero [1749-1828 El Valle de San Miguel]

MtDNA haplogroup A2h1: most distant female ancestor = Maria Dolores Quintana [1846-1920+]

I am registered with the Family Tree DNA  Kit # 81329.

According to Angel Cervantes, the NM DNA Project Administrator, I carry the Y-DNA genes of Capitan Bartolome Romero

who came with Onate in 1598 to found the first Spanish settlement in New Mexico called San Gabriel del Yunque.

Now I need to find the paper trail to connect Juan Domingo Romero to Bartolome Romero.
