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

Keeping up with my Tejana roots all the way in Maryland

I started getting into genealogy about 2 years ago. I don't remember how I stumbled across the "We Are Cousins" blog, but I am glad I stumbled upon it. Moises has started to accompany his blog by adding podcasts. His introductory music theme had me hooked from the beginning. He lays out in his podcast what he is going to discuss and sticks to it. I only listen to two podcasts (We Are Cousins and another podcast) and take turns listening to the podcasts when I get ready for work in the morning. Make sure to subscribe to his blog newsletter and become a member of the We Are Cousins Facebook group too!
