Hola primos. I was born in Puerto Rico. I have traced my roots via government records and cannot find the link with the González/Rodríguez/Garza family in Mexico or Texas, although I have matched with hundreds of them. I suspect my maternal grandfather was Mexican. My mother was adopted and she has never met her biological parents. Thanks to FTDNA I found my maternal grandmother, but she and her siblings are already dead. I have no one left on her side that can tell me who my grandfather was. If anyone knows of a male relative who lived in Manhattan circa 1944-45 please let me know. I would like to know who he was.

Hello Jose Gonzalez: Do you have a tree with the info you have? If you do, where we can find it and look into it? There is no tree here on FTDNA, neither a gedmatch number as a starter. With adoptions, a DNA cM and segments count is a must. And it is great that you have those ancestors name. There is this site that we can possible help you. https://www.facebook.com/groups/aidatorres/

Xavier is my dad and Jose is my paternal grandfather. When my grandpa came to the US he borrowed a couple of surnames from my grandmother's family tree, so we don't actually know his real name. He won't say anything about it. Thanks, Moises.

Hi everyone. My gedmatch Kit # is Z423728 (kc9901mom). My mother is a Guerra de Sanchez by birth. She did the ancestry DNA and she is 42% American Indian (New World) and 41% Iberian peninsula. Family Tree DNA most common surname is Garza (13 of them). My late paternal great-great grandfather was born on 24 Dec 1858 (according to his death certificate) and he was a triplet according to the 1870 United States Federal Census. I'm looking to add my cousins to my family tree on family tree dna web site but so far I have not had any luck with my primos/primas who have trees. My ancestors were mostly poor farmers and illiterate and so I only have the memories of my living relatives and oral history from my maternal grandmother. I have found distant cousins through familysearch, ancestry, and facebook. My trees are all public and can be found on family tree dna, familysearch, ancestry, myheritage, wikitree, (living people are set to private)

Yes I am kc9901mom. Well, Virginia Guerra (dau. of Sabas) married an Esteban Soto. Esteban's father was a Juan Soto (1882-1956). Juan Soto's father was a Maximo Soto and Maximo had a brother named Juan Soto. I also have a Gregorio Soto listed as a son of Maximo but according to Soto descendants Gregorio was Maximo's nephew. I do believe that there is Grijalvo in this Soto line. I did look at your tree and I do believe also the connection lies on the Sanchez side.
