  2. Dear Moises, I found your wonderful, informative website last week. I have been researching my ancestors for many years, and did not think I would come upon such a treasure trove of information. Unless I’m mistaken, your direct ancestor, Margarita Guitierrez de Castro was the sister of my Ma. Thomasina Isabel Guitierrez de Castro. She married Captain Rodrigo Martinez de la Garza October 19, 1693 in the Cathedral in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. Sources: “With All Arms,” by Duaine; Index to Marriage Investigations of the Diocese of Guadalajara Guerra; and “Conquistadores and Crypto-Jews of Monterrey.” My family lines are interwoven a number of times. I wonder if we are also related through our Martinez ancestors. The earliest Martinez ancestors I have are Juan Francisco Martinez Guajardo and Ursula Ines Catarina Navarro Rodriguez. I know you can’t possibly correspond with all your followers or “cousins,” but I just wanted to let you know we are related, however remotely. God Bless. Nancy in Raleigh, North Carolina

    1. Francisco and Ursula are my 10th great grandparents, so we are definitely primos. Let me know if you want to exchange family trees. On my Gutierrez I have yet to find all of her siblings since I am just focusing on direct ancestors at this moment.
