Are there any group members who have the Trevizo surname from Chihuahua and are a direct descendant? I've been working my tail off to figure out the origin or ancestor of that surname in Chihuahua. Unfortunately I'm still stuck reading through records that are in extremely poor condition from Cusihuiriachi,Chihuahua. I've been stuck on 7th ggf for about 6 months now😔

Angelica Trevizo, Where are you getting those records from?

Sorry everybody but I wasn't aware anyone was commenting on my post. I do apologize, this is her mother as I do manage her DNA account as she is a minor. All of the documentation I have I've retrieved from the familysearch website. This has been a project I've been extensively working on for over two years. To this day I am still stuck on the same direct ancestor and I am still mulling over the same catholic church records on family search. In the interim I have been building out all of the branches on her paternal Trevizo line discovering that she does relate to other Trevizo lines in San Lorenzo Doctor Belisario, Bachinivia, Santa Rosalia and I quite can't remember the others. But her direct ancestor line so far originates in Cusihuiriachi, then to Santa Ysabel General Trias and Cuidad Juarez with surnames connecting to Nieto, Neyra, Gardea, Martes, Gomes, Duarte, Esparza, Arroyos, Nevarez, Garcia, Duran, Velador, Gonzalez, Rojo, Dominguez.

Sylvia Robles the old folklore is that 3 men w/Treviso surname who were from Italy came to Chihuahua in late to early 1600's. They were all tall w/light hair and&or green, blue eyes which describes 70% of my daughter's Trevizo family including herself w/an olive complexion to match.

Along the same line, I have a collection of black and white photos that my paternal aunt left to me. Most of these pictures are pre-1950. One, a post card picture, I found particularly interesting written in Spanish to my Tia Lucina Hernandez Arcos (Arcos being her married surname). It looks like a mid 1930 picture and written on the back, is "dedico este humilde foto , de tu prima Maria del Refugio Henestrosa, que te quiere mucho. My question, can anybody give me information on this surname. I have gleaned many Mexican church records, and I have never seen this Henestrosa surname anyplace else? This particular Tia Maria was writing from Lucero Durango.

you are talking about Peco Nocona,Quahdi Commanche. it is next to impossible to be related to both Commanche and Apache and especially at that time as they were not the best of friends but I suppose anything is possible.Two completely different Indian groups with two distinct language families as well as history.

Good evening all. I manage my brother's Y-DNA111 kit and have expanded the testing to get his correct (rather than presumed) haplo group. He is R-L151. Currently I am looking for any information on the GOMEZ surname. I can only trace our direct paternal line back to the Chihuahua area of Mexico. Our 2x great grandfather was Juan Jesus Gomez who was born there in June 1830. His father is Jose GOMEZ who married Maria Cesaria PERES. Unfortunately, the closest Y-DNA matches to my brother are not responding to any queries except to say there are no Gomezes in their family. Anyone who might have information on the GOMEZes in Chihuahua?

Hello....I don't know my father but am familiar with some of that side of the family. A second cousin from that side tested with 23&Me. His haplogroup is E-L17 (NOT E-L117). Evidently this is M78/V13. It appears to be European. Anyone have any additional information about E-L17? My father's surname is Rodriguez. Thanks in advance!
Robert Gonzalez
February 23 @ 3:21pm
Hi Kim, yes E-V13 is indeed a European haplogroup. It is found at it's highest percentages in Europe, specifically the Balkans, especially Albania. The oldest sample to date was found in northeastern Spain. I am V13 and descend from the Gonzalez de Hermosillo\Hermosilla clan...if you'd like to know more, feel free to contact me. Robert Gonzalez~

February 23 @ 5:28pm
Hi Robert..thank you for your reply. I wish I knew the family and could ask a male member to do a y-37 marker test. I think that possibly could tell more. When I first saw E-L17...I thought it had its origin from the Middle East until I looked more closely. Thank you for your information!

December 29 @ 3:44pm
HI Gary, I've been a member of this project for about 2 years and I have not received any matches. I'm presumed in the M269. I have been stuck at my 3x great-grandfather, who according to family tales migrated from Mexico (area unknown) to Piura, Peru mid 1800's. Would purchasing an upgrade help find possible matches, and which do you recommend.
Daniel Hernandez
December 30 @ 5:56pm
James, M269 is a HUGE haplogroup category! In order to narrow it down to more specifics, you could upgrade your STR's, but....the approach I took with my brother's M269 was to do a SNP (mutations) pack test. Once that came back, I joined my brother's results into the proper subclade project, to narrow down possible matches & also to access particular information from that project's newsfeed. From there, I finally ended up ordering the Big Y, a YFull analysis, and uploaded his VCF into Alex Williamson's R1b Big Tree (now you have to submit the raw data to YDNA Warehouse, which then makes it available to Alex for inclusion in the appropriate Big Tree chart for your specific subclade). I know it might seem overwhelming, but starting with a SNP pak will give you some sense of direction. In the meantime, have you joined any FTDNA Y-Projects? If you join the (very large) R1b & all Subclades (Gateway) Project, you will be grouped with others who might more closely match you. Any of the admin's will also be available to provide advice on what direction you might want to pursue for additional testing or upgrades, but you may have to contact them directly, once in the project (their names & contact information are provided). And be sure to give them as least "limited" access, once you're in their project, so they can access your account info & assist you! OK, just my two cents worth...Consuelo Udave (admin. for all of my brother's YDNA testing & results)!

Oh yes, at least one more project to consider: R P312 & Subclades! Good luck! C. Udave

Hola prima. From what I have seen, it is very difficult to pinpoint a tribe. I've researched the tribes where most of my relatives are from. The major group around nuevo Leon were the Guachichil. I can't say whether or not my ancestors were from these people, but it's a reference. You can also look at haplogroups. Mine is C1C2. Of indigenous groups in Mexico that have been tested, C1C2 may be most common among the Huichol, who are originally from Northern San Luis Potosi and probably southern Nuevo Leon. Good luck

Hola: There is no DNA with any government recognized tribe inside the USA except mine; Echota Cherokee Tribe of Alabama. Autosomal DNA is family. Father/mother to extended cousins. All blood relatives. I use and Genesis. A free autosomal website for research. Send me an email to One must be a blood relative for someone now enrolled or had been enrolled, deceased member, that you are a blood relative and can document how you are a blood relative. A tribe is made of clans and a culture as the language, Tsalagi Syllabary, and tribal ceremonies that are for the tribe and other tribes. I have a website cherokeeindiansofalabama.
