689DNA Collecting trip-Baja California
- Oct 13, 2013I will be leaving soon for a 6 week mule trip covering the bottom half
(500 miles) of the Baja California peninsula. I will be collecting DNA
from selected males of founding family surnames, most were soldiers/
mission workers etc in Baja California between 1697-1800. Pedigrees
will be compiled (via initial interview and my 40 yrs of research)
first to give a greater chance that the Y line goes back to the
selected ancestor surname and I am also using the 1930 Baja California
census to help narrow the search. Hopefully I will have at least 2-3
different men for each surname to try to sift out the "who's your
daddy ain't your daddy" NPE issues.
If you are a male Carrillo descended from the Santa Barbara-Los
Angeles-San Diego Carrillos of Alta California (late 1700s from Baja
to 1850) and have a good paper trail and have confirmed your Y, I
would like to hear from you. This includes any present day Carrillo
in Baja California especially in the south.
Also if you are a Baja/Alta California Verduzco/Verdusco/Berdusco and
know that your male line has roots in southern Baja California
pre-1850 I would also like to hear from you.
Other surnames (with the same requirements) are Cota (descended from
soldier Andre Cota), Marron (soldier Rafael Marron), Romero (soldier
Jose Ignacio Romero), Mayoral (Filipino sailor who jumped ship at Cabo
San Lucas-1760), Lopez (soldier Juan Miguel Lopez), Aguilar (soldier
Juan Antonio Aguilar) and Villavicencio (soldier (Manuel de le Toree
I have already established the Y for the Arce soldier-brothers
There are other names I will watch for but this list might at least
get someone's attention here who has a line to any of these men.

familia Marron Carrillo (Baja California
familia Marron/Arce (Baja California)
My other 4WD is a Baja mule!
It is a well-known fact in Baja California that if you throw a rock in
to the air, it will fall on the head of an Arce!!
