Wow!!

My grandmother was a Garza who married a Guerra. Listening to this podcast after doing the AncestryDNA has been really awesome. I’m in the process of learning about the Tamaulipas and the Nuevo León region. Can’t wait to discover more about the Native American ancestry tied into the region as well. Thanks for the awesome work
