DNA Panel Discussion
Miguel A. Tórrez is an independent New Mexico Historian and Genetic Genealogist who consults with many on comparing and validating genealogies with genetic testing. Miguel currently works as a research technologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and has his degrees in Natural Resources and Southwestern Studies. Miguel has been interested in history since childhood but took a serious interest when he wanted to discover who he was and where he came from. It was this pursuit that led him to his passion and has devoted over twelve years to studying New Mexican families, their familial connections, migration patterns and all the wonders of genealogy. Miguel has a blog site that facilitates and serves as a central point for his and other researchers work regarding New Mexico Genetic Genealogy.

Santiago Romero has a special interest in DNA and was one of first members of the New Mexico DNA Project.

Santiago has helped many new members understand their results.
