I don't know Jaime, that is pretty ambitious. I agree that everything comes out in the wash, but history is pretty complicated. I just want to meet some relatives and get a better idea of the road my ancestors have traveled. But, we'll see, anyway, thanks for the conversation. As I get older, I find myself preaching much more than I would like and probably scare some people off!

I would like it to be opened, strictly from the standpoint of correcting written world history as known/taught, or at least giving equal time to different perspectives. If the truth of yesteryear can be extracted from DNA, I would welcome it. Like it is said lies will eventually catch up to you? I read somewhere in a geneticist review that through Y and X analysis that one day they will be able to plot your ancestry to within 30 to 50 feet from where your Y or X originated (community). Unbelievable, like we are a walking living DNA GPS monitor!<
- Linda, let say it was your father that had the Native American ancestry, which is most likely. It could have come from any of his ancestors not just the Romero y Chavez line. If you look for female descendants of all of your female ancestors on your father's side that have taken an mtDNA test you will find that most of them have Native American mtDNA which will show you that you have Native American DNA from many of your ancestors on your father's line.
Again, there are many records missing. The records that show the wives as being Espanola are the ones you were able to find. The ones you weren't able to find and don't show to be born in Spain are the ones that are very likely to be Native American.
Are you willing to share your tree?

> Thank you for your insights, Joel. They are very helpful. I would like to add that my father's YDNA is J2b1 (J-M205) and my mother's mtDNA is U5a1b3. My mother's family moved West and settled in the Midwest in the early 1800's. She was born in North Dakota and her father was born in Iowa. Her mother was born in Minnesota. (Who said that people didn't move around much in the old days?) That's where I would have suspected Native American influence to enter her line. However, it would be too recent to only show up as 6%. If the Mayflower descendants did not mix much with Native Americans in the early settlement days, then I have to conclude that my Native American genes must come from my father's side. Now the question is, how do I find out when and where it came from. It seems everyone I have found in the records, so far, was light skinned enough to be referred to as "Espanole" in the recordings by the Church.
> Since my father is direct male descendant of Lucas Romero y Chavez, born ca.1660-1670, and I believe he was Spanish, the Native American must be from his wife or the wife of one of his descendants in my line. Is my reasoning correct? If so, does anyone know how far back I should start looking? All the wives were listed as Espanole, so the Native American would be several generations back in one of their lines.
