The purpose of the We Are Cousins DNA Project
Our purspose is to identify the YDNA of the progenitors of the many Hispanic surnames of Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, Tamaulipas and South Texas. This project will also focus on identifying the mtDNA of their wives.
Goals of Our Project
1. Group people whom have tested with FamilyTreeDNA into a group of people that have deep 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 and or publish articles with DNA findings and genealogical discoveries.
Main Goal: This research will lay the foundation and ground work that will help us extend other paternal and maternal lines to these early settlers of the region.
