We Are Cousins DNA Project

The We Are Cousins DNA Project is for any one interested in Y-DNA and mtDNA research whose paternal and maternal roots are from the States of Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and South Texas. Our main goal is to identify the DNA for every last name found in South Texas and Northeastern Mexico and identify different DNA lineages for any given last name. Here is a list of identified Surnames: View List

Goals of This Project

1. Group people whom have tested with FTDN into a group whom have ancestry in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Coahuila and Texas.

2. Identify participants whom have tested their Y-DNA..​

3. Identify participants whom have tested their mtDNA.​

​4. Generate reports with DNA findings and supporting documentation proving lineage of direct paternal ancestry.
