¿Qué nuevas me traéis? Juan Ponce de León is connected!

+10 votes

I'm not sure if it was Los Reyes Magos, WikiTree elves, or the great work of our Puerto Rican project members, but famed explorer Juan Ponce de León is now connected to our global tree. His links travel through project member Dr. Ana Oquendo Pabón, co-founder of the Puerto Rican DNA project

This is great news! Many Puerto Rican researchers, including Puerto Rican Project and Association of Professional Genealogists member Dr. Nydia Hanna, can trace their descent from Ponce de León. By making this connection, several large branches of our tree are now connected. 

¡hurra! ¡qué bueno!

It's a great time to add your Puerto Rican ancestors, in-laws, and ancestors' in-laws and to join our Puerto Rican project here on WikiTree.

Thank you, Karen! Ponce de Leon is 82 degrees from Rosa Parks. That sounds like some kind of record for long connections! I have never seen one over 70 steps!
