    Mine are from La Plata County (Durango), just south of Mesa. Don't think there's a connection, but...

    I'm not sure what we are. The family name is Cole. He was from Indiana. His wife was from Durango we think. She died when their eight(?) children were quite young; they were divided up among other relatives to be raised and they lost track of each other.

    In the only picture I've seen of her, she looked like she could be hispanic or mixed. But my grandfather had light brown hair and blue eyes.

    Thank you so much Remi_Aventura!

    I am so happy for you that you found your cousins!

    my brother is now 52.

    I certainly agree about it not being easy to find estranged family and not meeting expectations. I am therefore trying to minimize mine..

    my dna kit arrived so sending it out into the world today and crossing my fingers!!

    Dang carbuff..

    My mom and grandmother were born in Durango.

    Ancestrally we lived in Rio Arriba county primarily though not exclusively for a very long time.

    My great grandfather also had lighter hair and blue eyes I think.

    He was a very handsome man my shepherding great grandfather!

    My genizaro ancestors have a peculiar trait. They are usually born with dark eyes that turn blue in mid life.

    Mine are hazel but I have a blue eyed Irish father.

    No Babyslims.

    I have followed his case for about a decade now but got indescribable chills when his DNA info came out this year.

    We share similar DNA from the same area of ancestry. My family circumstances are such that it is possible we are related with a logical reason for him not being missed if he happens to be related.

    Here’s a weird and off-the-wall question because my curiosity is piqued! Are you any relation to Robert Trujillo, the current bassist with for the rock band Metallica? He was born in Santa Monica, California!

    My aunt is an estranged aunt I re met at my grandmothers funeral recently. It will take some time to track her down. I met TONS of family and it was discussed after they left to Idaho that one of the daughters and I share an interest in genealogy.

    I too always wondered about dating my brother lol! Certainly had me worried..
    I have been mostly in relationship so not as stressed as my sister was about it, but we did indeed discuss this possibility!

    how uncanny you knew each other, eh?

    Thank you Eu Tu Croquet :)

    I have loved and longed for him for decades :(

    I was indeed shocked to discover how recently slavery still existed in this culture, or that it was widespread practice :( After reading about genizaros last year my heart broke even more for my mother and our families as I pondered what exactly they endured and gained an understanding into my family that resulted in forgiveness of them on my end and explained my ancestral pain. It may sound VERY weird, but I think it possible that we harbor ancestral memories encoded in our DNA too.
    I have been tormented about my family as long as I can remember, and reading through the pedigrees online seems to trigger memories for me of a hazy inexplicable sort. I hope I'm not crazy lol , but what if memories are stored in our DNa map and we don't know it yet? I digress lol.. But enquiring minds ask non traditional questions aye?

    So if Lyle is your brother, that would mean he was 35 when he died. Anythings possible I suppose, but I feel like Lyle was in his 20s in 2001. JMO

    Good luck with the dna kit [emoji4] keep us posted!

    Hi Taltos, been following your story and wish you the best, have to say your theory about storing memory within our dna has been a concept that i always believed in and thought i was alone in that thinking, hey maybe we are related too, jk!

    Not that I'm aware of but I am submitting my DNA kit today to find out the extent of my traceable ancestry.
    We are Trujillos from Abique NM which is the exotic DNA Trujillo hotspot I believe..

    Hello dotr :)

    You are very kind and I thank you :)

    I'm glad I'm not alone in my theory either it seems plausible for sure!

    you never know about relatedness ;-). Anything is possible..
