Genealogical Connection Made

June 22, 2011

The orange segments are where my cousin and I match.

I found another cousin (he’s a 3rd cousin)  from my dad’s side thanks to Family Tree DNA’s Family Finder test. It’s very exciting and reassuring to know this test actually works.

My great grandmother, Dolores Montes de Oca was his great grandmother’s sister, Angela Montes de Oca. Both  originally from Tenteniguada in Valesquillo, Gran Canaria. Their family moved to Cuba in the late 1800s.

Also, his Population Finder results are  very similar to mine, only with slightly more European and less North African than me, which falls nicely within the margin of error.

We’re currently comparing notes and already a few tidbits of information have surfaced. Should be fun.
