We had to build the trees for the Martinez matches
Note that most Catholic men were called Jose back then and then known by their middle name so we needed to find a daughter of Trinidad Martinez married to a son of Pasqual Padilla
Obituaries are a great source for finding the names and parents of the living. This one found the Martinez-Padilla marriage we were looking for
Both of the 2 sons who were in the right place at the right time to conceive Tessa are dead, but one of each of their sons has tested and now we wait
Both brothers tests are now in!
