If you know of someone who took the DNA test from the National Geographic Genographic Project, let them know they should transfer their data and save what they can. You can no longer purchase a test from them and their site will be taken down a year from now. Read more about it here:

I bought a kit for my uncle and had him test his DNA thru NatGeo. He is not that computer-savvy. How can we transfer his data to here, David?

I gave Ovando wrong info.... Juan Pio is not from Matehuala, his adopted brother's inlaws are from Matehuala.

Matehuala is the "peyote garden" of Mexico! My great-grandmother is from there and she was a peyotera, not sure who her people were, tho, Huichol or the like.

My de la Rosa/ Rodriguez family originated in Los Cinco Senores Santender Jimenez in 1755..the descendants have lived there for over 250 years..

I looked at the YDNA results of Ricardo de la Rosa and William Sanchez. While both match at the Y12 level, they do not match at the higher levels. There are too many differences. Not a meaningful match during the genealogical time frame.

Thanks david. The common ancestor could be much further back than we imagine. I match a lot of europeans through the 12, but have no real timeframe of how far back that ancestor was from. Most likely over 500-1000 years

This picture was taken in San Antonio Texas, circa 1935 at the Apache Meat Packing Company. My Dad, Ramon Hernandez Rubio is in the white coat with his hand on a lever. I thought that maybe some of the members of this project can identify these other employees, who could be family friends or relatives? My father and mom, migrated from Mexico via Piedras Negras Coahuila in the early 1920's. They temporarily settled in San Antonio and continued their trek into Salinas, California in the late 1930's, where I was born. To this day, I still have close and distant primos in San Antonio Texas.
