The New Mexico Genealogical Society presents
Angel R. Cervantes

Who will discuss

The New Mexico DNA Project:
The Visigoths’ Connection to Y-DNA Haplogroup I

The Visigoths conquered the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) in the 6th Century A.D. They were the first Christian rulers of Spain. Although their dynasty lasted only a couple of centuries, many New Mexicans alive today continue to carry their bloodlines.

Mr. Cervantes will discuss which New Mexican families have the Visigoth DNA. He will also show a short video that will explain the history of these people, which includes their invasion of Spain.
