DNA Search

There are possible descendents of several noted members, including Lope de Oviedo, of the Narváez expedition whose heritage may originate on the central Gulf Coast.

For people with indigenous ancestry of tribes of the Gulf Coast - Atakapa, Chitimacha, Choctaw, Biloxi, Apalachee, and others - or southeast and southcentral interior tribes - Wichita, Caddo, Natchez, and others - who have taken DNA tests and gotten results that indicate their heritage includes Spanish, Morrocan, Greek, or broader regions including the Iberian Peninsula, Mediterranean Europe, Middle East or North Africa (that is not believed to solely derive from recent relatives of the past two centuries; i.e. African, European or Middle Eastern ancestry from earlier than the past six to eight generations), Project misisipi is interested to hear from you.

Interesting, I didn’t think of this with my matches. Melungeon did think of Juan Parfo, and Desoto and others, but this explains certain regional historical matches before later Spanish Settlements.
