For thousands of hispanics in the state of New Mexico,USA, the following ancestors are among the primary progenitors from "las Islas Canarias".
We would like to find out more about these ancestors by getting information as to who their parents and grandparents were. We know that Mar?a Betancur is descended from the Bethencourt's (Jean de Bethencourt) who were among the original conquerers, but without more information about her family, we cannot make the connection.
Is Pedro de VERA PERDOMO related to Pedro de Vera Mendoza and his son Francisco de Vera Mendoza, both of the Canary Islands?
Perhaps someone who lives in the Canary Islands can assist us in learning more about these important ancestors of so many people here in New Mexico.
