Juan Robles is my 10th great grandmother and Crispin Rendon has published an mtDAN report on her and her female descendants.
Make sure to get your own copy using the links below since you never know how long this report will be on the internet.
Crispin Mentions that Juana Robles is his 9th great grandmother and what I thought was great is that he thinks that if you have roots in Nuevo Leon there is a 50% chance that she is also one of your ancestors.
Part of the Report:
“Juana Robles is my 9th great grandmother. We have 68,852 of her descendants in our kindred group database. Based on that figure I think if you have roots in the Mexican States of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas than you have a 50% chance that she is also your ancestor. This report is limited to the first 12 generations based on the mtDNA rules of inheritance. Juana Robles was married to Juan Rocha. Juan was born in Spain. We know that from his will.
Testamento de Juan de Rocha sobre su estado civil Lugar: MONTERREY Fecha: 06/Oct/1647 Fojas: 3 Coleccion: PROTOCOLOS Volumen: 2, Expediente: 1, Folio: 124 NO. 69, Notas: Descripcion: Testamento de Juan de Rocha, Escribano de Su Majestad, hijo legitimo de Rodrigo Lopez de Rocha y Mariana de Avila, vecinos de la villa de Madrid, “de donde es natural”.

Thanks to multiple mtDNA test samples and associated family trees we also know that Juana Robles had Native American YDNA. Here are the test results.

The above was all written by Crispin Rendon and boy I was excited when I read the part of my ancestor’s husband. I had no idea that he had made a will.
Also what excited me was that Juana’s Robles mtDNA is native American.
As I mentioned earlier in this blog post, make sure to get your copy of this report. Also if you have 10 generations or more on your paternal or maternal side and is fully documented please contact Crispin or me. This report has been added to the We Are Cousins Project DNA Page.
