      To all whom it may concern,

      My understanding is that Mexican Native American DNA cannot be used to gain American Indian tribal enrollment, and that is understandable.  Even if ones Mexican DNA has proven North American Indigenous DNA , that is insufficient or is not recognized.  You have to show American tribal enrollment cards/records of your parents or grandparents, that would prove you have at least 25% Native American ancestry.  I have also read that each American tribes enrollment procedures are different, some very liberal and some very strict.  However, none use sole DNA evidence to gain admission, that I know of.

      Siyo Marie:
      Did you have your DNA checked by Family Tree DNA? If yes; what did you have done?
      I want to add the DNA use to tribal enrollment procedures. 
      The DNA, Family Finder, would add all the individuals that match up as relatives and objectively prove who one is related to.

      > Hi, I don't even know where to start All I really know is my mom's family were very close, intermarrying among cousins often. They came from Agualeguas, Mier, Parras, and Cadayeta. Those are all small towns in a cluster in Northeastern Mexico. But these families were not part of the colony founders the way my father's families were. And they had to work to finally save enough money to buy a farm unlike my dad's families which got Spanish land grants. The very earliest female name I have is named Pascuala without a last name. I think that may be an indication that she was Indian. But I can't find my Franco relatives even in the Mexican Census reports. Everything I've learned has been from Mexican Parish Church Baptismal, Death, and Marriage records that ancestry.com has. It did find them in the US Census Records.

      Orfa, if your ancestor had no surname, yes she was Indian. I have not done research in the states you mention, altho I may have had some Brito people there. Sorry. Marie
