This is the Y-DNA descendant report of Captain Alberto del Canto created by Crispin Rendon. Alberto del Canto is my 11th great grandfather and he lived during the late 1500's and early 1600's.
This report by Crispin Rendon is an attempt to document or discover the Y-DNA of Alberto del Canto. Presently as Crispin mentions there are two lineages and both have different Y-DNA. The reasons can vary but more male descendants need to come forward.
So if you are a Rodriguez and can trace your line back to Alberto del Canto with documentation please contact Crispin Rendon.
Introduction of Report by Crispin Rendon
This is what Crispin has to say about his report.
Alberto del Canto was a Portuguese conquistador that founded some communities in New Spain (present-day Mexico) during the late 1500's. He was born in the Azores Islands in about 1547 as Alberto do Canto. The places he founded included Saltillo as well as Santa Lucia, the first attempt at establishing a city located at present-day Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. He married Estefania de Montemayor, daughter of his rival Diego de Montemayor who successfully founded Monterrey. When Estefania left Alberto, she went back to her father and her children were given his surname.
Many of Alberto del Canto's descendants that would carry his YDNA have the Rodriguez surname now. Rolando and Eddie Rodriguez have trees linking back to Alberto. Y-DNA 37 marker testing results for Rolando are R-M269 and for Eddie are I-P37. It is not possible for del Canto's male line descendants to have two different haplogroup designations that are not recently connected to each other. Either one or both of these branches does not connect to del Canto through the paternal line. Errors in the genealogical record research or non-paternal events (due to adoptions, affairs, etc.) could explain the different results. It is interesting to note that Rolando's results closely match that of the Garza lineage. Look for highlights in this report to follow their documented lines. Rolando's (RM269) branch is highlighted blue and Eddie's (I-P37) branch is highlighted yellow.
We need more men who may be descendants of Alberto del Canto through their paternal line, to take a Y-DNA test to research this lineage. We thank Rolando, Eddie, and to those who have provided funding to our group genetic genealogy research.
This chart shows how the paper trail records of Rolando and Eddie are suppose to connect to Alberto. Generations after their split are not shown. https://dna.updog.co/canto/
